We were just passing through Franklin on a vacation south and found Cajun Steamer's as a close by restaurant with a New Orleans themed menu. It sounded good and the menu looked good also but unfortunately this place has simply outgrown itself. It is basically located in a strip mall and is sized like a narrow dress shop but,,,, they have packed a full blown restaurant, bar, and entertainment all into the space where just one of these might have fit. The two piece band was basically standing in front of the door to the kitchen and had to dodge the servers as they transported food and dishes in/out. The tables are very tight and your neighbor's conversation will become yours whether desired or not. We started with some cocktails at the very small bar. They were OK and priced on the high side. We got a table for dinner but like most of the tables in this place it was so small the dishes wouldn't all fit on it. The food was OK but not well presented. Service was stressed as the place was busy plus the congestion that the logistics caused. I think these folks have something to offer but they really need to re-think the plan.
