My husband and I enjoyed wandering through this historic building taking in the local artwork and the uniqueness of the building.

A good, solid restaurant experience. I eat here regularly and have always gotten great food and service. In my opinion it's a little overpriced, but definitely the best restaurant in Franklin.

Nice place to eat in Franklin, KY. Service was good and food was decent. Ordered the Scallop special which was okay. A little overcooked. Would go back next time in Franklin, as the restaurant choices are very limited.

Traveling to Franklin, Ky. always includes a meal at the Brick Yard Cafe. This meal was dinner with friends on a weeknight. A varied menu plus specials offered made my decision difficult but the locals suggested their Lasagna. A very good choice, large serving with a salad added to my order. Prices are very affordable, location is easy to find.... More

Nothing pretentious, just excellent eats. I had some of the best ribs EVER this evening...my family members raved about scallops and fish. 5 people spent $ 115, no drinks. We'll be back.
