What Our Customers Say


We have visited a couple of times and will definitely be back! It's our new favorite! The quality of the food is above and beyond any other restaurant ! Truly! Down to the oils used to cook. Our server Jacob was knowledgeable and personable! We tried to take pictures but the chocolate tort dessert was too delicious and we forgot.

What a nice little gem to find in Franklin! I liked the ambiance and the food was great! Chef’s mushrooms app has been awesome two different times. The drinks are killler too. The shrimp and Gouda grit cake was phenomenal! The place looks fancy, but don’t let that scare ya. It’s just good food and good people!

Had a great lunch there yesterday. I had the stuffed portobello and my friend had the tempura shrimp. Both delicious. Then we shared a sinfully delicious chocolate tort with strawberries. Our server was wonderful I think her name is Amanda. Can't wait to go back.

What a fantastic dinner! Victoria provided first class service and we experienced an incredible meal. From the truffle cheese fondue appetizer to the perfectly medium-rare steaks, through to a surprisingly decadent flour less chocolate cake, every single item we tasted was spectacular. Drinks we're on point and varied enough to suit all four of our specific pallets: scotch, wine, beer, and a mixed drink. Last time we were here we were less than impressed, but this experience blew us away!
Victoria was fantastic - she was sweet, prompt, and great at her job! The ribeye and frites dish was absolutely phenomenal, especially with that epic lemon aioli! YUM! Everyone at our table was blown away with how tasty the food was.

Unbelievably friendly staff. Fabulous options for any pallet or mealtime (The breakfast is out of this world!, very fresh, doesn’t leave you feeling heavy) . and don’t forget the fabulous cocktails! Drink menu is amazing and The bloody Maria at breakfast is a nice touch! Every meal I have enjoyed here has been above and beyond my expectations! Thank you, thank you, thank you Gracious plates for giving the Macon county locals some thing we’ve been waiting for!

We passed through for lunch on our way home from Gatlinburg and definitely didn't disappoint. Emily our server was very gracious and accommodating and made some really great suggestions. The personal touches that are put into the flavors, presentation, and playing make the difference for a already great experience.
