The Mcconnell House is located in historic Franklin, Tennessee. Originally built as the local jail, a daytime drive around is worth the time to appreciate the architecture and history of this place, and not get lost in the dark! We were in town for a wedding and treated to this interesting venue for the reception. Gorgeous hardwood floors, tasteful vintage decorations, large ground floor bar and 3 levels of stairs to accommodate more intimate dining made the evening cosy and pleasant. The bar and waitstaff were very professional, helpful and personable! The roast beef was delicious and tender, food tasty and hot. A beautiful venue for that special occasion and top catering!

My company had its Christmas Party at the McConnell house. This was an old jail and there were brick walls on the inside and it felt historic with it's hardwood flooring. The food was excellent and varied, and the servers were great. The mushroom appetizers were out of this world. There are 3 floors with different areas where you had either a bar or tables for dinner.
I would definitely recommend this place!

First of all you should realize that at one time the McConnell House used to be a prison among many other things in its day so you can just imagine the personality this building has. My family and I had the pleasure of dining there for a wonderful Easter brunch, it was fantastic. The service was warm and friendly, the food was so beautifully displayed in charming clusters about the main floor. The McConnell House is located in the Historic Downtown Franklin and is absolutely a neighborhood gem, I can't wait until Mother's Day!!!

The food was not as good as last years and this was the same feeling across our party of 17.. Felt thrown together and the scale of quality of food was not up to par. .. I recall last year stating.. "We need to make this our tradition because the food was so good. Nothing really stood out this year.. Will have to look at next years menu and decide .

The McConnell House has a great reputation for being a fantastic venue.....but they have recently started cooking demonstrations as well. We participated in one last night "cocktail parties" and had a fabulous time. Chef Carl was entertaining as well as an excellent chef.....anyone who has eaten at Red Pony and Cork and Cow knows that. If you are looking for a fun night you should check them out!
