The food quality is not great, the quantity compared to when the casino had the restaurant is about 3/4 to the amount of food that they served, They charge you for cokes, tea, coffee...where that was NOT the case before...the service is always good, and the servers cannot help how slow the...

A good, solid restaurant experience. I eat here regularly and have always gotten great food and service. In my opinion it's a little overpriced, but definitely the best restaurant in Franklin.

Nice place to eat in Franklin, KY. Service was good and food was decent. Ordered the Scallop special which was okay. A little overcooked. Would go back next time in Franklin, as the restaurant choices are very limited.

What a nice spot for lunch! My salmon was perfectly cooked & my husband's spaghetti was delicious. Staff was really friendly. We will make this a regular stop when driving through!

Traveling to Franklin, Ky. always includes a meal at the Brick Yard Cafe. This meal was dinner with friends on a weeknight. A varied menu plus specials offered made my decision difficult but the locals suggested their Lasagna. A very good choice, large serving with a salad added to my order. Prices are very affordable, location is easy to find.... More

Nothing pretentious, just excellent eats. I had some of the best ribs EVER this evening...my family members raved about scallops and fish. 5 people spent $ 115, no drinks. We'll be back.

We looked for something different to lunch at on the road and found this cute restaurant! We ordered the salmon with veggies and the hot brown! The Salmon was excellently cooked as well as the veggies, the hot brown was enjoyable but I would have preferred it with the original ham and bacon strips! Very tasty though! We enjoyed it.... More

Franklin Ky is a great trip back in time located on the square is Brickyard Cafe it is a great restaurant we got the lasagna and it was very tasty along with the jambalaya. We went at lunch time and the prices were reasonable. Give them a try if you enjoy good Italian food

Had dinner here with our 2 kids, ages 10&12 on Saturday night. The ambiance is really cool, exposed brick, neat bar. Wide variety of food-kids had pasta, I had jambalaya-spicy! My husband had the salmon special and it was delish! The service was good, prices reasonable, portions large.

Thank carriemom
