Based on reviews, had planned to eat here during a recent trip to Franklin. Upon arrival, discovered the windows were papered over and the restaurant was closed. Had to scramble to find a new place to eat last minute. Very disappointing.

We love going here as a family. Cute decor. Super-friendly staff. Clean. Excellent upper class ( not Cracker Barrel!) home-cooked food. Fresh iced tea. I am not always a fan of this style of food as it can be heavy and seem not healthy. But...More
