I recommend it for everyone.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Disappointing ServiceThe food was great but the service was disappointing. You know it is bad when you have to ask another server for help. Maybe not always like this but our server also had a large table that seemed to monopolize his time. With that said, I would still go back. In my view, once is an outlier, twice is a pattern.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat little cafe.Great Food And Attentive Service. Have Already Recommended To Friends And Will Return Again.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprise space in a strip mallFirst time to Mack and Kate's for a business dinner. Food and service were great. I was suprised of the 'feel' of the restaurant with it being in a little strip center, but it was much nicer than I expected.
Two of us had the scallops and we both agreed they were outstanding. The other two in our party were please with their choices as well.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMsunday supper offered a limitedsunday supper offered a limited menu; good comfort food. The bacon mac and cheese was woth the trip.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat seasonal menuThe food was really good. Their menu changes seasonly. Mixed drinks are a little pricer than they should be. Only complaint is they didn't update their website with the new spring menu (and the online menu didn't say winter), so what I planned on getting wasn't available. But I loved what I ended up getting, so it still worked out. I had the chicken, pasta, asparagus dish - delicious. My hubby had the meatloaf, which he loved and said he'd get again.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll be backMy husband and I enjoyed a lovely dinner at Mack and Kate's last week. He had the pork loin (superb) and I had the pasta. The pasta was very good, but very rich (probably more rich that I would've preferred). The coconut cake was divine! Aside from good food, our favorite part of the restaurant was the ambiance and romance. The decor is romantic and the restaurant was lacking children (which was a nice change from many other Franklin restaurants). Our server was outstanding, made great recommendations and read our table well (which meant that he was scarce so we could enjoy a nice, romantic dinner).4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat nightVery Nice Experience. Shrimp and Grits were Stellar.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis Family Knows How To Do It!Brunch at Mack and Kate's was a delight! From the 'at home' atmosphere to the service to the food, an A+! Have been to Macke's many times and now must try M's. This family knows how to do it! The "Fried Green Tomato Benedict" is a must!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMack and Kates is one of thoseMack and Kates is one of those places where you don't even need to look at a menu. The servers were outstanding, offering a wonderful wine that suited my taste and a meal to match it. They had many ideas on how to mix and match seasonal items that were all delicious. It was comfortable, tasty, affordable and a find!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Restaurant - waitExcellent Restaurant - wait staff is exceptional - food is fantastic4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food.

The fresh fish, mahi mahi, was perfectly cooked with creamy orzo pasta and a salsa on top. No heavy sauces, just fresh food.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice experience. SophisticatedVery nice experience. Sophisticated southern food. Very good.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I have startedMy wife and I have started trying a new restaurant every Friday night and Mack and Kate's was our choice this week. I had their fried pork chops with Gouda mac and cheese and steamed broccoli and my wife had the shrimp and grits and a house salad. Everything was delicious.
The only complaint I had was that the portions were a little small for the price. I ate everything on my plate and was still hungry, where at most restaurant's I fill up and have leftovers for lunch the next day. For the money, I felt like there should have been more or at least included a salad. Not much of a complaint, just letting you know what to expect.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent flavors in all theirExcellent flavors in all their dishes! Fantastic food!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and Wine Treasures!Such a lovely evening! Can't wait to return and discover other food and wine treasures created by Mack and Kates!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and serviceExcellent food and service with some unique menu items3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experience all aroundThe food was excellent and so was the service. Orginally my friend wanted the shortribs and I wanted the salmon and they were out of both. I ordered the scallops which were excellent. The presentation was beautifu and a flavor to match. My friend decided on the filet which was on purple potatos. It tasted excellent but, it wasn't as nice looking on the plate. I had a cab which was very good, they had good price points on the wines and my friend had a mixed drink, not watered down, nor too strong. For desert enjoyed the flourless chocolate tort which was to die for...had berries on top. Perfect way to end the evening. Randy was our server and he was excellent as well.1/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
