Unfortunately, this restaurant is closed. We loved going there and were very disappointed that it closed up!

Just my own opinion, but I feel that this restaurant has been declining for a while. They have been closed since sometime in the early fall -- maybe in the summer, even. Too bad! The only other "real" steakhouse in Franklin doesn't offer a wine list (or other alcoholic drinks). (Unless they slipped one in on me recently ;-). )

We went to the Blue Ridge Roadhouse specifically because they have prime rib. However, as we went to order, the waitress told us they were out. There should have been a sign of the special board, or she should have mentioned that when she took our appetizer and drink order. The meal was actually good, but not what we wanted.... More

Aftewr reading some of the previous negative reviews I decided to give Blue Ridge a "test" visit on my own.

No problem, she was more... More

When everything is Ala carte you begin to wonder what these people are thinking. They need to take lessons from Fatz restaurant. Food was not that great, neither was the service and waited way too long for food to arrive. Will not give them a second chance for sure. They do not seem to care even if you bring things... More

The food is ok here. Really, for a place that claims he best steaks in western North Carolina, I was disappointed. Our service was just so-so. The atmosphere is fun, though!
