We had a nice evening with my colleagues at Franklin Grill. We booked a table for 14 and we were able stay upstairs and having a private area. Really great stekas and hamburgers! I loved the appetizer plates we shared! Nice location in the middle of small village. My recommendations.

My wife and I went out for dinner, sat outside and had a great dinner. Service was great and the meal didn't disappoint. I had the salmon with sweet potatoes and my wife had the one of the pasta dishes. I would recommend the Franklin Grill and they take reservations.

I tried this place with friends for the first time, and we fell in love with the patio. We didn't have reservations, they asked us if we could wait for just a few minutes and in the meantime they could get us drinks while we were waiting. By the time we finished our first round of drinks we got seated.... More

This place has its positive and negative points. It is a charming location in a charming location. The food is OK but not great. The service is OK but not great. The place is apparently run by locals for locals so if you are not a local you may be in for a long meal. If you make a reservation,... More
