Very nice spot for late meal or apps and drinks - our server was very good and the grilled shrimp and bacon salad with lemon basil vinaigrette was great (i like spicy food)!
beignets for dessert were also very good - open until 10pm the week night we were there.
Highly recommend

Had lunch here in downtown Franklin. Cool themed interior. Unbelievable food. The "bag o' shrimp appetizer was amazing. Pricey, but was well worth it. Will definitely go back.

Stumbled upon this gem in Franklin. Sat in the bar area. Very comfortable and an A+ for the menu and food. Wait staff was awesome even when they were crazy busy. Highly recommend.

This is a kid friendly casual restaurant with friendly staff and great food. The chicken and waffles are so good! Try the brisket queso dip appetizer too!

Visited Franklin for the first time last week and fell in love with this quaint little town. We plan to find a rental and spend a couple of weeks here during the late summer.
While shopping downtown I asked several store clerks where to eat and these people weren't shy about naming their favorites. What a hard decision but we finally chose 55 SOUTH and glad we did.
Our very pretty and personable server ALEXA (plus dog lover) took quite good care of us and helped with our selections. My wife got the incredibly tasty chicken salad with a home made dressing (to kill for). I got the gumbo which was out of this world delicious and it came with some of the best garlic bread I've ever put in my mouth. Absolutely exquisite and probably the best lunch I've eaten in 5 years!
Clean restaurant, spotless bathroom (which is a good indicator the kitchen is too), very polite, smiling & friendly staff, fair prices and adequate portions so there is no reason not to give it a try.
Parking was tight but we found out later there is a parking garage right around the corner.
Cannot wait to go back on our return visit and also try the other restaurants just steps away from this one!
