Steakhouse | Franklin / Brentwood, Nashville

We were taking a long weekend in the area and found Sperry's online. Though we had a reservation and there were a number of open tables they tried to seat us in the bar. When we resisted we got a table in the dining room. The place is a little dated looking, especially the carpeting. Our waiter was personable and helpful. We chose the 6oz and 8oz filets. They were cooked exactly as requested. The twice baked potato was good but a little heavy on the cheese. The salad bar and hot bread were a bonus and had a good variety. Finally, our waiter suggested the bananas foster. We usually don't indulge in dessert but it sounded so good we had to try it. I'm glad we did. In addition to getting to see it prepared at the table, it was delicious. All in all, it was a really good meal. More

Pleasantly surprised to find this gem! Service was excellent - and sincere. Food exceeded expectations - the trout, salmon and Brussels sprouts are all amazing. The only average item was the creme brûlée - probably could've skipped dessert. We will be back! More

Tried the Dine and Bowl option thru the website. It sent me to Open Table. Made the reservation and later got an email asking if we were still planning on going. I responded yes. When we finished our dinner and asked about the bowling, the waitress had to get the manager who didn’t believe we had done anything about the Dine and Bowl. I walked him through the process that I went through and he saw what I had done. He allowed us to go to the top of the waitlist. When I saw him later in the evening, I thanked him, but he kinda glared at me like he didn’t believe me despite me showing him what I did. You need a better process though the King’s Dining and Entertainment website. More

Discover Franklin

Nashville is well-known worldwide as an entertainment capital of the south, but many people do not realize that the area just south of Nashville is home to an excellent array of eateries that range from the several steakhouses to a solid assortment of Asian restaurants. There are also pizzerias and other European cuisines available at multiple locations. And, of course, when you are talking Tennessee, you are talking barbecue restaurants galore. While Nashville offers the hustle-bustle activity of a big city, the communities of Brentwood and Franklin are small towns located about a 30-minute drive from the country music magnet; both offer a more relaxed setting for any dining experience, whether it is a high-profile chain outlet or a down home "Mom and Pop" country cooking buffet.
