We tried this small cafe in the scenic Meridian Hills area with our two grandchildren, ages 10 and 8. We had eaten at the Barking Dog at their previous location in Franklin, and liked it very much.
When we saw it was on "Diners, etc" we decided to give it a try.
It's a small restaurant, but offers additional seating outside. They also have water bowls if you bring your dog. We were there at noon, and they were busy but not packed. Our waiter presented the specials, and was very friendly, yet professional.
Our grandson had a cup of clam chowder as a starter. It looked so good when it arrived that our granddaughter decided to get one, too. I'm glad she did , because she shared it with me. We all agreed it was the best we've ever tasted. In case you doubt the opinion of two children, we travel to the gulf coast often, and they love to try clam chowder in new places! I thought it was much better than the Chart House, my previous gold standard.
The kids both had fried clams, (one sandwich, one lunch). They, too, were excellent, hot, tender, lightly battered and delicious. I had the shrimp roll (as seen on Diners), and it was terrific. My husband really enjoyed the tuna salad.
The people at the next table had some yummy looking peach cobbler. We were sorry we were too full.
We talked to the owner, and found her pleasant and cordial.
This was an excellent meal, and we'll definitely go back.
