“only place open at night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

We came across this bar while walking around Downtown Franklin. Every other place in town was closed, so finding this bar that was open another hour was great.

“Quaint, colorful, cozy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

I love being in the Rathskeller. The owners are warm, friendly and witty. They take care to serve great coffees and wines. I highly recommend the Rathskeller to anyone wanting a great coffee, a light meal or something refreshing from the bar. I visit on a weekly basis.

“A Real Rathskeller”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

A great place to visit any time of day and even in the evenings. Live music on weekend nites - the friendliest staff anywhere - the food is delicious and fresh. A real fun time can be had by all.

“Great late night burger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

I passed through Franklin a couple times on my most recent Appalachian Trail adventure. The last time was late at night, on my way from Fontana Dam back to Atlanta. Rathskeller was the only place around to get food...

I was VERY pleasently surprised. The burger was more well-done than I prefer, but I understand this is required by North Carolina rules... The place was packed on a Thursday night, there was a live band, and everybody seemed to be having a great time. We had our burgers and beer and headed out, but I think the party lasted a lot longer.
