Came here for lunch on a Saturday - it was busy, but not crowded. I loved the ambiance - it felt like the restaurants close to the fishing camps in Louisiana. This restaurant is devoted to seafood - fried, grilled, blackened - you name it! Prices are reasonable, and the portions are nice. The wait staff was a little slow, but very friendly. We were told they have live music Wednesdays thru Sundays - we'll have to go back to check that out!
Favorite Dish: I had the fried shrimp po-boy - it was delicious! You could tell the shrimp was fresh, and it was not over-fried like some places tend to do. My husband had the popcorn shrimp basket, which he enjoyed. We were both quite full after our lunch, but the waitress mentioned a chocolate pecan pie, and I HAD to try that! It was served warm - oh MAN that was good! :-)

Definitely more "high end" than my husband and I usually patronize - we came here for our family Christmas dinner. The restaurant is lovely - small, very dark, and woody, and cozy feeling. This would be ideal for a "date night". We had a lovely time - the waitress was great, offering suggestions of appetizers and wines, and the service was casual - gave us time to converse and have a relaxed, good time without dragging on. The filet mignon was PERFECT - soooo flavorful and tasty. I really enjoyed our visit, and would definitely go back for a special occasion.

The newest coffee house in Franklin will likely give Starbuck's a run for it's money! We came here before a concert at the Franklin Theatre and the place was packed. We placed our order at the counter and garnered a sweet table on the patio. The food arrived quickly and was delicious. I loved sitting out on the patio and can imagine sitting at the barstool railing, drinking a cup of coffee, while it rains - how blissful! The menu is attractively priced and quite full, for a coffee house. They offer salads, soups, sandwiches, and full-plate dinners - most under $10, with the plate dinners maxing out at $16. This is the perfect place to stop for a bite pre-or-post show at the Franklin Theatre, or for coffee and breakfast before or after church. The staff was friendly and prompt - I loved this place and can see spending a lot of time here.
Favorite Dish: I had the Royale sandwich (hot sandwich with turkey, swiss, tomato, avocado, lettuce and basil mayo) for $8, and a black iced tea. My husband had the PMP (hot sandwich with proscuitto, mozzerella, provelone, avocado, lettuce, tomato, and basil mayo) for $9, and a black iced tea. Both came with corn chips and salsa and was quite filling.

Came here with my husband for lunch. He had the fried catfish po-boy and I had the chicken tender po-boy. French fries tasted fresh, not frozen, and are the thick cut type. He really enjoyed his po-boy, but I did not care for the sauce they used on the sandwiches. Unlimited drink refills. Cute, casual atmosphere - very kid friendly. For the sandwich, fries and drink, ~ $12.

Loved the ambiance - cajun music playing in the background, fun casual setting. We ate on the back patio which was very nice. And they offer Abita Amber beer!!
Favorite Dish: We started with 1/2 dozen chargrilled oysters - yummy!! I had the Atchafalaya Pirogue - Fried eggplant stuffed with grilled tilapia and topped with a crab cream sauce which was delicious, and my companion had the crawfish po-boy. I was very happy with the selections and they brought back "home" for me!
UPDATE 9/29/11: Another return visit - this time I had the Melvin's Blackened Chicken - blackened chicken, caramelized onions and bacon with balsamic glaze over mashed potatoes. Although I wish the onions had been *just a little* more done, it was a wonderful dish - very tasty and filling.

Located in a historic building on Franklin's Main Street, this is a new restaurant to the area (opened in April 2011). Very small inside (9 long picnic-style tables) and seating is "family style". Menu is posted on the chalkboard. The prices are a little intimidating, but they note "large portions" and are not kidding - I ate on my crawfish etouffee for 2 more days (not bad for the $15.95)! They do allow you to share, so that would be my recommendation, unless you fancy bringing home leftovers. Food was tasty, but not seasoned to where I would call it "authentic". My etouffee was blonde... My husband had the chicken creole, and found it to be too "tomato-y". I thought it tasted good though.
The service was friendly and fast, and I love that they sell Abita Amber beer, which was a staple with Cajun food when I lived in New Orleans.

"The Merc" is a local gem; casual, cozy and artsy, like other great Nashville haunts. Mismatched tables and chairs, local artist handiwork on the walls - even the live flowers in mason jars on the table - this is the epitome of funky, local chic.
Food is very tasty and inexpensive.
Favorite Dish: I got the 1/2 sandwich and soup for $6.95 - OMG the tomato basil soup was out of this world! I got a Diet Coke, but wished I had gotten the fresh fruit tea, as it looked and smelled wonderful! Oh well, next time... :-)

Very casual BBQ place - you can smell the meat smoking in the back as soon as you park. Very heavy, rustic wooden tables and chairs - Texas-western decorations on the walls (license plates, rodeo stuff, photos of actors, etc). Prices are very good - most things on the menu are less than $10. Portions are generous. Live music most nights. Service is friendly and fast.
Favorite Dish: My boyfriend always gets the beef brisket. I've had the pork plate with fried okra and BBQ beans, which was very good. I think my new favorite dish here is the BBQ tacos - brisket, pork or chicken in corn tortillas (you can get 2 or 3) with two sides. Very filling and so yummy!

Wonderful old-time grocery store converted into a restaurant and performance venue. I love the ambiance of the old, mismatched wooden tables and chairs, and 50's era grocery decor. A small stage at the front holds live musical performances, including a "Rising Star" contest. Food is simple, fresh, and fast. This is a great place to visit when you are in Franklin - the weekly meat-and-three is ~$10.
Favorite Dish: I had the spinach salad with grilled chicken ($9.25) which was very tasty. My boyfriend had the weekend platter ($9.99), which was BBQ beef brisket, baked beans and another veggie. We ended with a warm chess pie with ice cream ($5.50) which was out of this world!
