    There were some ants on the corner table we were sitting initially. Looks like those ants came from from the plant in the corner. We had to change the table.

    The only complaint I have is that they charged me a 3% fee for using a credit card, when I asked can I use my ATM then so I would not charged they said that wasn't an option. Most people aren't walking around with cash so I thought that the fee was a bit unnecessary.

    Unfortunately, we did not have great service, and were surprised by the 3% fee to use a credit card. Additionally, internet went down so we were held up in paying and getting out.

    Very good food, always consistent. Attentive server, though perhaps a little much. The French Dip and the burgers, chicken sandwiches are always good. Try the spinach dip and the prime rib, too. Stoney River has a better baked potato option.

    New to the Franklin area and was excited to check out the local restaurants. Pressed Sushi App was very good, Ahi Tuna was of mediocre quality at best. Prime Rib and side came out room temperature. Lemon Berry cake was very good. This restaurant requires a credit card to make/hold a reservation then charges a 3% "convenience" fee to use it. From that I get the sense the management thinks it's a privilege to dine at their establishment. Based on other restaurants in the area, I disagree.

    Rotisserie chicken was like jerky. Seemed to be reheated or something. We mentioned it to the waiter. They offered to bring more sauce to put on it. My wife couldn’t eat it. It was like the turkey on Christmas vacation…. They offered free desert, we said don’t worry about it. They did in the end, take the chicken off the bill. Later in the afternoon, I got a prank call from the number of the Rutledge, I called back, they said open table was hacked.whatever I suppose

    We went out for my husband's birthday. We were seated in the room off of the bar and it was really cold in there. I didn't take off my coat. My husband ordered the prime rib with roasted brussell sprouts and loved it. Good portion size, tasted good. I had the tuscan shrimp pasta and wasn't impressed. The dish had 4 shrimp, 2 small cherry tomatoes, and 2 small pieces of cut red peppers. It was a small to medium portion, for a pasta dish, and was disappointed in the small number of shrimp it had for the price. We had to wait for silverware after our food was delivered. The drinks were good. I would most likely try it another night, hopefully we will get a table inside the building.

    Very Good ! The Shrimp Tuscan was Good , the waitress told me it was going to be spicy (HOT) it was. I believe as I am a cook at home , they could cut back on the Red Pepper Flakes. James salmon he said was very good. We will come back and try other dishes.
