“Special Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

If you want to eat or catch entertainment where the locals go....check out Kimbro's! The food is wonderful and they're especially known for their live music which sometimes features notable award winning bands, singers and songwriters.

“Really quirky bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

They had live music in the one room, but we chose to stay in a different room to talk better with each other. They had some really cool artwork on the wall, and the whole look of the place had the feel of an arty clean dive bar place. It's hard to describe, you have to see for yourself. It's in an old house and each room has a different feel. The beer is all bottled and they have a great selection, at reasonable prices. The kitchen was shut when we got there, but the barman did find us some chips and salsa, which was nice. If you like good music, good beer and good people then this is the place to come.

“Good music, good food, nice people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Music at night features a wide range of styles but all is very good. Food choices are a bit limited but prepared well and served with southern hospitality. Great choice in an off the beaten path location.

“Quaint Franklin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

If you want an interesting quaint place to eat while antiquing in Franklin, try this place. It has all of the atmosphere that you would expect Music City to have. We had lunch and the broccoli salad on the side was delicious. They do have entertainment at night as well. We will be back!

Loved the quaintness of the place and the music was good. Small selection of beer; however, they were all good.
