About Mack and Kates
Sophisticated Southern and Gourmet Country are great ways to describe the cuisine at the charming Mack & Kate"s Cafe. Named after two sisters, MacKenzie and Kathleen, our family owned and operated establishment will make you feel right at home. Started in a small, sleepy town, Mack & Kate's humbled beginnings took place in a small service station. This charming little destination dining spot grew over eight years, resulting in the Strawn Family relocating Mack & Kates to Franklin, TN.
We enjoy seeing our friends from our early days and our new friends here in Franklin.
We use the freshest and finest when it comes to our ingredients and always support local farmers and growers. We pride our self in our accommodating and knowledgeable service team and the ability to consistently feed our customers what they are looking for; the freshest from the best.

Mack and Kates Ratings and Reviews
We've done Thanksgiving & Christmas Day meals there-and they've both been fabulous. We don't feel crowded or rushed. Service is impeccable-waiters are there when you need them and absent when you want to be alone. The staff is very friendly. Mack & Kate's is our new go-to place.
Food was just about average and seemed a little over priced, but the bigger deal was our server who would not stop talking and just let us eat. He went on and on about his wife, his trips, his dog etc. I'm not sure why he wouldn't let us just enjoy our meal in peace, but this night was all about him and not us.
We were on our way to Nashville for the Nutcracker and stopped here for brunch. We had a party of 8 and they gave us the private room. Our server was very sweet and attentive. The food was great, very plentiful and the chef did a great job accommodating our children’s requests. We will definitely make another visit, perhaps for dinner.
We were very pleased with the overall experience. When we arrived there were a couple of holiday parties, and there was a miscommunication between the hostess and the wait staff so we waited a little longer than expected once we were seated. Otherwise, everything was great.
This was a family dinner for 5 to celebrate a birthday. We were seated promptly at 7:00pm and the waiter greeted us immediately. The restaurant wasn't full which was odd, but it was the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Within 30 minutes or so it was much more full, which felt better. The quality of the food was great and the waiter was very attentive. We found the table and chairs/bench to be uncomfortable for a party of 5 because tables had been pushed together making the setting sort of segregated. Ultimately we had a great dinner with enthusiastic service and a fun time being together!
Out with friends and found this gem on Open Table. Chose it for location and last minute availability on a busy Saturday night. What a treat! Excellent food. Friendly, fast and efficient service. Reasonable prices. Something for all tastes and budgets when it comes to fine dining. I had the salmon. Enough for two meals - and delicious! Nice ambiance, too. When in the area, we’ll be back!
Restaurant was almost empty when our group of 5 arrived for our 7 pm reservation. It was a rainy Monday evening so perhaps that was the reason.
The fried green tomatoes were great as usual but the normally wonderful deviled eggs were watery and rubbery! Entrees were hit or miss. Pork chop was huge and well seasoned but my chicken was dry and tasteless. The butternut squash “soufflé” on the side was sweet and more reminiscent of dessert. Best item of the night was the bread pudding. Delicious!
Server was friendly but too much so perhaps because there were few other people in the restaurant. When I am trying to enjoy an evening with my family I don’t want to hear about your wife, travels home, hobbies etc. He went on and on. By the end of our meal we wished he would just go away!
