The food was great. Had the bacon wrapped figs as an appetizer. They were sweet and crunchy. Highly recommend. We had the salmon and the Heritage chicken. Both dishes tasted wonderful and we're nicely prepared.

Our server was very informative. Our food was above average. We shared a salad and beef brisket which seemed more like beef short ribs. Overall good though.

Interesting little restaurant. Very old-school interior and different kind of menu. Right where the action is in downtown Franklin. Fried Pimento cheese balls were the bomb.

They have a great brunch! If you are a largish party, or going between 11-1, I'd suggest a reservation to be on the safe side.

I know that Gray's does host parties for large groups. They have a large upstairs area that would be great for a large group. They do have live music some nights, so if you do want that feature or not, then ask when you... More
