    Macy recommends!

    We ate lunch here yesterday on the outdoor patio. Plenty of room, extremely dog friendly with a dog menu and free dog dessert. Macy enjoyed a 4 ounce burger that is mixed with cheddar and carrots and a peanut butter and whipped cream dessert. I’m sure she highly recommends it! Our burgers were delicious too and service was great.

    Perfect Pup Stop

    Patio seating was good even on a warm summer day in Franklin. Iced water came out pronto. Dog menu was posted on a small menu stand. We did not order for our puppy. human food was good. Nice salads along with burgers hotdogs and sandwiches. We would go again!

    Josie loved it

    Went there earlier in the week and the patio was closed due to concerns about rain, but we went today after hiking and loved the patio. The doggie menu was a great treat for Josie. As with so many spots, they’re short staffed right now; so the service was less than ideal. The food was fine for a burger joint. Glad that they had a veggie option for the burger and served local beer. I’m sure we’ll be back while here on vacation.

    Great service

    Our server brought water for our 2 dogs before even bringing us water! We were not offered the pooch menu, but our 2 labs both gave it 5 bones. Service was great and food was very good.

    Lovely Dinner In Franklin

    Very nice spacious patio and always pleased to find a dog friendly dining option. Food and service were good. I was a bit disappointed, after reading other reviews, that we (nor the other dog diners on the patio) were not offered either the dog menu or even water for our dog.

    Our pup gave 4 paws

    Human food was great. But we were not offered the pooch menu that was raved about. They were very accommodating and came right out with a dish of water for our Baylee pup.

    Lovely Patio Dining

    Nice big patio area and good food. The wait staff were great. So friendly. They also brought water for our fur babies which was very nice. Always such a wonderful thing when traveling to be able to find pet friendly places.

    Great patio dining downtown Franklin

    Very comfortable patio with huge, shady umbrellas and a stage for live music. Our friendly waitress bought our pups each big bowls of water and they were THRILLED with the pet menu! (very reasonably priced dish of beef, chicken or fish with veggies & cheese) We also loved our lunch choices (huge Greek Chicken Quesadillas with feta dressing and toppings) and authentic milkshakes to go with the 50's decor. Restaurant was super clean and staff was great!
