    I know it’s Franklin Tn. But food was priced incredibly high, we didn’t like most of what we got. Roasted chicken was bland, roasted vegetables had zero seasoning, hot Apple cider served in a plastic cup, burger was good, fish okay, salad was okay. Nothing great. Drove over two hours to bring my daughter and friends to something pink and Christmasy, made reservations but that wasn’t for the Dolly Parton part, It was a wasted day that cost close to two hundred dollars. The server was great. Sadly you would be better off at a chain and I hate saying that. I know it’s a Taphouse so maybe just get drinks.

    After arriving early for a 6:30pm reservation , our party waited 20 minutes or more before being told there would be no more seatings for at least 40 minutes or more. Very disappointing , very u professional to make us wait well past our reservation and then tell us we could not be seated .

    The waitstaff was great, My friends burger and our fries were all quite good. I ordered the Italian dip, and while it had good flavor, the sliced beef was pretty dried out and the crispy onions were tough to bite through, almost as if the sandwich fillings had been sitting under a heat lamp for a while. I still ate it, but it could have been fresher.

    Horrible and a big waste of money. Food is subpar, with high pricing. Service was atrocious and slow. Employees couldn’t care less whether you are there or not, absolutely terrible service. Don’t waste time/money by going here. Tons of better food options in Franklin, TN, coming from a resident of 7 years.

    We made a reservation as we had heard about the Christmas pop-up there. It was not made clear that the pop-up was separate from the restaurant. We were dissapointed to be seated away from it. The server was kind but completely overwhelmed by the full house, and told us about it. I didn't blame her, it was packed and they were clearly understaffed - it wasn't her fault and she did her best. It was VERY loud, and service took forever.

    Very dissoapointed We booked for the holiday pop up. Got there and they said they don’t take reservations for that. Not very clear when I booked that on open table that it wasn’t for the pop up. Only reason we went. Then when asked if we could move the table to the pop up area they said no due to we already ordered an appetizer in the main restaurant. So ridiculous Won’t go back. What happened to trying to accommodate people?

    Food was just okay. The grilled chicken on my salad was dry and overcooked. We waited 30 minutes after ordering our cocktails for them to arrive. Ordered a glass of wine that took over 30 minutes so we just told them to cancel it. Bill was incorrect and took extra time to fix. They have a pop up bar which is cute but understaffed with one bartender serving both bar and restaurant. They gave us a discount for all the issues, but honestly isn’t worth the headache. Needs a lot of work. We won’t be back.
    Americana TaphouseResponded on December 16, 2023
    I am sorry that you had to wait so long for your drinks, and that your chicken was overcooked. You are correct only one bartender was a mistake and we are in the process of adding more team members on the floor to increase the speed and quality of service. I hope that you would give us another chance in the future.

    Major letdown. Service was terrible. Food was subpar. Ambiance was lacking in the restaurant. The heavily promoted Christmas decor is only in the bar area. All of the Christmas pop up menu was sold out at 7pm. The drinks were not good. I couldn’t even finish mine. I wouldn’t go back.

    Hello Susanne, I am sorry that you traveled all the way to visit us and we did not have any of the pop-bar menu items left. We are working hard to fix this so that we do not run out of these items. I would love for you to give us another chance

    Don’t waste your time coming here if you actually want to order off the bar bites menu. They had absolutely nothing available at 7PM on a Saturday night. This is literally the reason why we came here, so it’ll be pretty hard to convince me to come back here again. We wasted our time driving down here in the rain for absolutely nothing.

    Hello Jamie, I am sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations with our pop up bar! This is something new for us and we have tried very hard to make it a great experience for everyone. I am sorry the drink was not to your liking. We are working out ways to ensure that we can keep from running out of our pop up bar menu items. I would like to invite you back to give us another chance.

    The atmosphere was drab and dirty. The food was just okay. The “chopped steak” on the menu is misleading. It should read “hamburger patty” because that is what it is. The service was poor even though there were 4-5 people working the floor. I would not recommend this place and I will certainly not be back.

    We made a reservation for 2pm through open table because we wanted to experience the Hard Candy Christmas pop up bar. Evidently you have to call and verbally request the pop up, but even then it was an extra 45 minute wait for a table upon arrival, even though we had a reservation. Several other people came to check in for their reservations as well and were told the same thing, that it would be a 45 minute wait. Many just left. The decor of the popup is a super fun theme obviously and the drinks were decent but beyond that, I am honestly not sure I would recommend wasting your time. Service was okay but slow. We got seated on the patio and had to ask 4 times for the propane to be changed on the heaters(which we had to turn on ourselves). The price you pay for the food and drinks is not at all worth the value of the experience. Cute pictures though!

    We were so excited to try the Christmas pop up but it was a miss from the start. First we had a reservation for 5, after we stood at the hostess stand for literally 15 minutes someone came out unapologetically. I mentioned we had a reservation for 5 people and she said “let me see if we have a table for you”. She then brought us through a filthy restaurant. Every single table was covered with old food plates and empty glass with flies all over the tables. She brought us to a table for four and I reminders her was have 5 and her response was “ all of our table seat four people” and walked off. Meanwhile an empty dirt table was next to us that had six seats. Never saw her again. Then the bartender came over to take our order. We ordered a charcuterie board which was fine and Christmas cocktails, which were also fine. We also ordered the s’mores board to take outside. When we asked if they were heaters outside, he replied, yes and I said, but are there heaters at the table? We are sitting out outside and he said no I said, can we sit at a table with the heater  and he replied, I can try… We looked outside and there wasn’t one other person sitting outside. And we were the only table inside. just two people at the bar.  The Christmas decor was very cute but the restaurant was disgusting and the staff was incredibly lazy and unhelpful.

    Hello LAbb, I am sorry that you had such a poor experience with us. We have been working with the front of the house staff on doing better at cleaning off the tables as they go and not leaving used dishes on the tables. We have also worked on training the staff on proper use of the heaters outside so they can be better utilized. I hope this experience does not keep you from coming and seeing us again.

    The food is very well prepared and tasty. The staff that is there does a great job of providing service. The one challenge is that they always seem to be short-staffed. Once they get fully staffed, this restaurant will be 5-star in my book!

    Once seated, we waited 20 minutes before anyone came to our table. Our food was decent, although I also had to wait another 20 minutes just to get ranch dressing for my salad. The server blamed the party of 23 people getting the kitchen backed up for the delay.

    Sadly, this place has really slipped. The service was slow and it wasn’t even that busy. After waiting 20 minutes just to get our drinks and another 25 for our appetizers, we opted to not order dinner and went to a different restaurant. We had to walk a drink back to the bar, because it arrived warm and flat and the server hadn’t checked back with us so we could tell her. Instead of trying to make anything right for us, she was defensive. This will be our last visit to Americana Taphouse.

    The salad I had was very soggy with dressing and tiny bits of chicken. I ate 4 bites. The server was excellent although the food was very slow coming out. I would come back for drinks, but probably not for food unless I got the hamburger. It’s awesome. Btw, I am local and have been here many times. I think the food game needs to be stepped up but I love the atmosphere.

    Our service was amazing - loved our waitress. But the food was terrible. My pork loin was so fatty, it was impossible to eat. The gravy tasted old and it was gloppy. My mashed potatoes had a “light crust” on top from being under the light for too long. There were 4 of us and the only good meal was the salmon. Super disappointed.

    Food was OK. Got the pot roast. It was dry and huge potatoes and carrots sitting in a bowl of juice. Flavor was bland and some of the carrots weren’t cooked through.
