    3 out of 4 diners remarked the food was TOO salty. Fries were horrible; soggy; literally stuck together in clumps. Both dining rooms were so noisy we had to shout to be heard at our small table. Finally asked to be seated outside. The traffic noise was actually quieter than inside noise. However, music outside (speakers) was also loud. Our server was accommodating and turned it down.

    Fish tacos just not tasty. Fish and chips had too much breading. Service slow. Asked for hot sauce and never got it. Nice location but food needs some work

    Such good food - one of our favorite places to eat downtown. They struggled with staffing issues (as have most restaurants), but our last two visits have been much improved as far as timing and quality of service. Also love the live music. Very kid friendly!

    They are known for their fish and chips and their fish tacos but we got there and they had no fish. I got a chicken sandwich that was tough and soggy. Very very average food for quite a price.

    First time visit for a late lunch at 1pm. Lesson learned - go earlier if you have a schedule. Food was good, service did what they could, but the kitchen must've been backed up because the place was full when we arrived. Will go back but timing will be key...

    This restaurant is so good, we ate there twice on our last trip to Nashville! We dined outside and had fish tacos and burgers, and shared a wedge salad. The food is delicious! Live music by locals. Very fun!

    Seating outside is very nice. Some of the food is amazing - salmon, brussel sprouts, potatoes. Some food left a little to be desired - green beans and fish tacos needed a little more flavor. Overall, though, the service and atmosphere was great! Perfect date night.

    Great experience. Food was very good. Services was a tad slow but server was very attentive and explained they were short staffed and it really was not that bad considering. I really liked the Hot Chicken PBLT. Chicken wasn't really that hot but it went great with the pimento cheese, bacon and tomato. My daughter really liked the wings. This was our first time there and our family talked about going back again soon even though we don't go down to Franklin very often. Oh, I almost forgot, good gluten free options and it is marked on the menu. Thank you for this! Two of my family have to eat gluten free.

    This is a good spot for a cold beer and a casual meal. The burgers and fries are very good, but the menu is not strong on "healthy alternatives", they recently removed the kale salad that had been a good option. The outdoor seating is very nice, live music 5-7pm several nites a week.

    My wife and I dined here on Mother’s Day. We sat outside on a beautiful sunny Sunday under an umbrella among large planters of colorful flowers. We were near the road which is why there was noise but the road is not that busy. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. My wife got the salmon and said it was the best she had ever had. I recommend the Yankee Cornbread.

    We sat on the patio and live music was playing. The noise level was just right (we could enjoy the music and carry on a conversation). We did sit for about 30 minutes before anyone came to take our drink order. Once we established service, the food arrived quickly and was delicious. Very generous portions. We will definitely be back.

    Like some places lately in the state our country, tonight they were struggling. Took about 10 min to see a server. The wedge salad was fantastic, great chunks of bleu cheese. Wife ordered Nashville hot chick sandwich, I got The bone-in strip & truffle frites but it was a boneless ribeye. It was cooked perfectly but wish it was the strip. Oh well. We’ll be back.

    Went here to get out for a casual night out away from our toddler and brought a friend who also had a young kid and was getting out. We were seated and I had made a reservation as well. We sat there with no one even glancing our way for at least 15-20 mins. We had to flag someone down to figure out why no one had helped us at all. The tables around the outdoor area and even bar area were all cluttered w dirty dishes and not cleaned up after patrons had left. A nice male server said he would just take care of it, and he did a good job so this is not to review him poorly at all. We had to ask to Have drinks taken off the bill due to use waiting so long. The food came out quick after we finally got our order taken, and tasted good but man it was not relaxing as we had hoped and we were starving by the time we got our food

    Atmosphere was great. Service definitely lacking. Has potential to be a great place, but we waited a long time for our drink order, refills, cold appetizer, food was Luke warm after waiting a long time. Every time I would have to glad they served down and he acted like it was an issue that I bothered him. We sat outside. They had many heaters for a chili night lined up in the back. I asked for one. Said they are out of propane. Don’t have them sit where people can ask for them if they can’t be used.

    It was the first time at Americana for two in our party who were visiting. Service was prompt, server was friendly and helpful. He suggested Happy Hour specials which we took advantage of Food was good. The only drawback is the limited menu which is also not varied. One can run out of choices quickly, especially for the person with dietary limitations. We would go there more often if we had more choices.
