Fantastic food and service . Hard to find a casual yet food fabulous menu anywhere near what this restaurant provides. We have tried many restaurants in Western NC and Root and Barrel is worth’s the drive if you don’t live in Franklin proper. We see the owner and family on many occasions and they treat us as if we were best friends and valued customer every time. The staff like John at the bar are all special. If you haven’t tried this place then spoil yourself!!! More

Discover Franklin

Located within the lush greenery of the Nantahala National Forest, Franklin is home to a wide assortment of creative and delicious dining options. Enjoy the chefs' creations at independent local fine dining locations, where you might be tempted by fresh black mussels steamed in white wine. For a land-based option, parsnip puree elevates farm-to-table, bone-in pork chops. If you feel like Mexican, Italian or Chinese cuisine, you’re in luck; it’s all here. For traditional Appalachian flavor, try cedar plank salmon topped with sea salt and wildflower honey. Franklin diners can also enjoy pimiento cheese and the beloved barbecue sauce, a peppery mixture of ketchup and vinegar. Other Southern favorites, like fried catfish, collard greens and Cajun-style shrimp and grits, are eternal foods for the soul.
