This restaurant was recommended to us by a local shop keeper, maybe because the owner of the restaurant was in his store at the time. My wife & I were visiting Franklin for the day & wanted to eat at a family run place. They had a fair amount of locals(judging by the familiarity) eating there. It's pleasantly appointed in a country decor. The service wasn't particularly friendly, timely or pleasant, considering the style of restaurant. They were more upbeat with the local clientele, which annoyed my wife & I. We are polite & friendly by nature, & have a background in hospitality/restaurants.
We were told that everything is prepared fresh, as it should be in such a place. It's country soul food after all. The onion rings tasted like bland frozen supermarket rings. My wife had the "homemade" chicken pot pie, which was pretty revolting to be honest. Sludgy chicken soup with chicken "string pieces" that were so soft you could eat it through a straw! What a gloopy mess. The corn that came with it tasted like it came out of a can. I had their fried chicken with fries & coleslaw. The chicken was very nice. It was tasty & cooked perfectly, with a good amount of moisture in the meat. The fries again, tasted frozen & generic. The coleslaw was OK, but my wife didn't think much of it. They did bring a basket of 3 "biscuits", of which only the corn bread style disappointed because it was dry & tasteless. The two other variations were good & very light & fluffy. That was what I was expecting from the whole meal. Good quality home cooking. I definitely wouldn't eat there again, based on the inconsistency of the food & the marginal service provided. Also the pricing of the food was higher than it should be based on the serving sizes & quality. $7.50 for a small, low quality chicken pot pie, & $11.50 for 1/2 fried chicken.
