It has a Main Street address, but the entrance is on 4th Avenue (same covered courtyard entrance as Meridee's). The food here is delicious and service is excellent. I had a shredded vegetables salad that was outstanding. I was in the mood for a burger, and I do believe this was the best cheeseburger I have ever had. The Dillenger... More

Went there with a group of people so we were able to try a lot of the items on the menu. We started off with the crab-stuffed shrimp and smoked pear crostini....highly recommend both of these. Entrees included the shrimp, scallops, gnocchi (absolutely delicious), herbed elk loin (unbelievably awesome flavor) & filets (cooked to perfection) with macaroni and cheese, fries,... More

Upscale restaurant near the middle of Franklin. Antique decor and delicious food awaits. Pricey but very good.

The restaurant had a great atmosphere and very attentive staff. We ordered mixed adult beverages which the mixologist was excellent. The appetizers were delicious and gone which we ordered 6 different plates. I ordered a NY Strip which was tasty. The problem was the meat was tough and did not slice like butter using a steak knife. Others shared similar... More

I had seen it over the years and knew I wanted to come here on a special night because it is definitely a fine dining restaurant! The service was excellent, the appetizer lamb chops were succulent. My filet mignon was out of this world. Cooked to... More

We had a tough time finding this restaurant but we did and it was a great dinner with great service and a friendly establishment. The butternut squash fritters are unique and very tasty. I was tempted to try the Elk, but decided on the lighter dinner of Halibut wrapped and cooked in banana leaves. Excellently done. The others in my... More
