Met up with family and sat at the big table. Had wonderful food with vegetarian choices. Franklin is a sweet little town in a beautiful location and getting to eat local is the cherry on top!

We had two soup and sandwich specials for lunch. Soup was good but was not very hot, sandwiches were excellent. Server was inattentive and not particularly friendly (in his defense he seemed to be working the resturaunt alone).

Started with the trout deviled eggs and it tasted very close to smoked salmon. Coincidence? Maybe. If you like to taste only mustard and no other seasoning, try these. They could have been delicious if seasoned. The bourbon glazed short rib with grits was perfectly seasoned and delicious. My wife had the trout niciose and enjoyed it very much. Both dishes were a hardy portion. We sat outside and the service was attentive and courteous. Holly was our waitress and we couldn’t have been more pleased with her service as noted above.

Not good.Took an hour to get 2 salads that were no better than average. Had to send wedge back because lettuce was brown. Management and staff seemed to care less. Water and tea never refilled during the hour wait. Unfortunate.
