Two couples for dinner on a Sunday. I had the rack of ribs and they were ok, not bad but not great either. The price was average. My wife and her friend had grilled chicken with a vegetable. Again, average food and average pricing. My friend had a bacon cheeseburger and it he said it was very good, I think... More

Party of six. Good burgers, good beer selection. Nothing fancy. Service is in the " hey, how you guys doin"? category. Fine for what it is. If you want a quick bite, want to catch the game, not spend too much, and leave full...this is the place for you...

We went here with my in laws a few time and every time gets progressively worse. The last time we went the food took ages to come out and a grilled piece of salmon was coated in oil and missing all the grill marks. Also, we were told everything is flat top grilled. We ordered prime rib because there was... More

The cheddar burger is always very good; the onion rings as a side in place of French fries is great for a tad less carbs. The onion rings really are terrific. The side sauce served with them is good, as is plane ole ketchup!! Highly recommend the beef burger. My guest loved her wrap as well.

Took the family for a steak dinner. Ambiance is a little loud and seating was pretty open, so not a place for a couple looking for a quiet private dinner. The service was good, the food was okay. Not of the caliber I was expecting at even say a Outback or Longhorn. Maybe my expectations were too high, but calling... More

We went for Mother's day and the service was excellent. Michelle was our waiter. She was diligent and on top of things. She was very busy but handled everything very well. Our drinks were replenished before we even knew we wanted them. The food was excellent. We had the prime rib special, strip steak, the cowboy steak and a shrimp... More

Definitely check out the Franklin Steakhouse for watching sports. Many, many televisions around the bar. Can be noisy during Happy Hour but otherwise nice atmosphere. This visit I started with Chicken Noodle soup; the soup of the day. Delicious soup with plenty of chicken. For the entree I figured since they are a steakhouse I would try the file mignon.... More
