    The blonde at the host stand was rude, the hostess that seated us was super friendly. While the steak was cooked correctly inside, the entire outside of it was burnt to a crisp. The server was nice but very slow. We waited 30 minutes from the time we finished eating to getting the check and being able to pay. Not worth the money in my opinion.

    It was 7:30 PM on a Saturday night. The restaurant was practically empty and yet it took nearly 40 minutes just to get our drinks to the table after ordering. The food was decent once it finally arrived. I was really disappointed overall. I hope they get their staffing issues resolved.

    I completely enjoyed the 6 oz filet with cherry sage butter and charred asparagus. I have a gluten allergy and they were able to make adjustments to most of the menu. I was also able to have a delicious dessert! My husband said the prime rib was wonderful and the truffle Mac n cheese was fabulous

    If you are interested in a top notch dining experience without the top notch price, this us the place to go. The food looked amazing and tasted even better. For the appetizers we has the shrimp cocktailand the asparagus fries, loved them both. For dinner had the herb crusted lamb and my husband had the ribeye and they were both perfection. Our waitress was amazing, she was courteous, friendly and most of all attentive!!! I can say they are short staffed and it was super bust but we were in no hurry and enjoyed the time together. If you are looking for fast food, go to McDonald's, this is not the place for you. Otherwise, give this restaurant a try. I hope your experience is as amazing as ours was.

    First thing we noticed was how dark it was in our seating arrangement, had to use candle light to see menu! The music was loud and not in good taste. We were seated 12 minutes before anyone greeted us ? Again it was dark and steak was a bit too done on the out side but MW inside wanted M. Prime rib was too done. Prices were too high! Work on lighting areas, servers need to greet guests quickly, give eye contact to customers, improve music, run specials.

    Our reservation was at 8:15 our waitress informed us at 9:35 she forgot to send the order to the back and that the kitchen was backed up so we had to wait even longer so we never got our food ! Then she blamed the kitchen for her mistake. Also my husband is a diabetic and our waitress tells him and the manager he's very thirsty . I mean we waited for over an hour with no food only bread

    I actually upset... Defiantly different from my first experience. Management was sub pare. Was not helpful at all very argumentative. Food was defiantly different AND VERY BLAND. My actual waitress she was very understanding and nice EVEN while she was training. My players card was kept and the treatment was horrible all because I had no clue that my winnings from Press for Cash DOES NOT COVER ALCOHOLIC DRINKS. Defiantly will be going to cooperate. The manager that opened iron steakhouse was best fit for this position.

    The food equals any of the steakhouses in the Nashville metro area. It’s superb. As in most restaurants at this writing, they’re a little understaffed, but still do a great job taking care of their customers. Patience, and kindness go a long way. I do recommend sitting further away from the entry, as smoke creeps in from the Mint.

    The food is excellent! The steaks are great and the portions are plentiful. The menu is packed with a variety of options. I have tried a few items other than the steak and they have all been excellent. They bring you fresh hot bread with a nice herb butter on the side. Unfortunately, they are understaffed, but hopefully, they will get that figured out soon. I highly recommend giving it a try, but be patient.

    It’s a shame that this place is situated in the environment that it is. Probably the best prime rib I’ve ever eaten, excellent service, the restaurant itself has a nice feel to it… and now the bad. Situated within the “gaming hall”, the smoke is so thick you can see it floating in the air when you enter the building. They don’t permit smoking within the restaurant, but every time the air handler would kick in, you could smell strong cigarette smoke. No restaurant within the restaurant, you have to exit into the game hall and fight through the haze to get to those as well. Such a shame, absolutely wonderful restaurant, probably overall better than anything in Bowling Green, Franklin could have a real gem on its hands if it weren’t for not being separated from the air of the casino area. Not sure what the current construction is… but if there’s any way you can move the restaurant to the far end of the new construction and completely separate the air handling, I would suggest doing so. I know there’s an above average # of smokers that frequent the hall, but seems you would pull in a lot of the public just for the restaurant if it were a better environment. Sadly, we won’t be back.
