“Good Food, Good prices, Fun atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

A wonderful meal on a busy Saturday night during Leaf season. We had a large group but received cheerful and helpful service. Great Sat night dinner specials, good drink prices which they actually reveal to the customer unlike 99% of other chain restaurants.
Have you seen menu prices in many resort towns on their peak weeks ? Not here. Very reasonable.
Good steak, pork chops, chicken cooked as you ask for, all 8 of us agreed.

“Overpriced and Not Worth It”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Place is way over priced for the quality of food that they serve. The don't know how to cook steaks to the requested temp, but I will say the waitress was friendly.

“Decor and excellent food don't match.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Stopped here when our hotel recommended this restaurant. We were traveling and the four of us were starved. We were not disappointed. Excellent prime rib. Decor is funky but cute.

“Good place to eat in Franklin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

We ate here while on a visit to Franklin. Lrge menu selections but priced ala cart. When you add it up it's a little higher than other "Roadhouse" restaurants and about the samefor other chain restaurants. For some reason they were out of the 8 oz sirloins at 5:30 in the afternoon on a weeknight. That seemed odd. None the less, the food was prepared correctly and was served promptly (not cold). Service was good. This restaurant is similar to other "Roadhouse" restaurants. We had the specials which included entrée and two sides for a better price than regular entrée with ala cart sides. I would return to this restaurant when in Franklin.

“Good food but high prices with the ala cart menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

Food is good and service was also good but the prices seemed high with the ala cart menus. Baked potato 3.49 on top of a steak price and another 3.49 salad... There was some note in the menus about rising costs and stuff - they should bundle some sides or somthing this was not a place you would expect to pay that much...
