Visited for brunch. A nice original southern menu for Sunday brunch. In a quiet area with plenty of parking. Good service, full bar.

Delicious food in a relaxing atmosphere. Fried green tomatoes with pimiento cheese were amazing! The biscuits with honey butter and blueberry jam were a big hit.

I had dinner here with reservations on a Friday evening. The fried green tomatoes were the best I've ever had. The complimentary biscuits were also good, but ours were not served with jam that other reviewers have mentioned. For my entrée, I ordered the lobster mac and cheese for $26. It was very good, but I felt it needed to... More

We went April 21st and hosted 4 other adults. The décor and atmosphere is inviting and pleasant. The crab appetizers were underwhelming; the fried green tomatoes were good. Four people ordered the fresh Halibut and said that it was very good; two of us had the shrimp and grits, which were just "good". The wine bottles were set on the... More

We had a basic brunch hunger and decided to try Mack and Kate's for our first Sunday brunch there (Valentines, dinner and business lunches have been great). The atmosphere was, as always, perfect . The service was good and engaging. They have a way of finding and retaining just the right staff to make it a little more special than... More

My all time favorite restaurant in Franklin. Locally owned. Quaint. Great for casual lunch or date night. Seasonal menu. Best shrimp and grits around. Friendly staff. Yummy mini biscuits and homemade jam. Love, love. Kids menu limited but kids enjoy going there.

Here is the deal. You will get great, friendly service. The restaurant is cute with great decorations. I ordered the filet mignon, and made an important adjustment. As I do not care for potatoes, I requested the grits. Best grits in town!!!! My daughter loved her mushroom ravioles. My wife did not care for the salmon. So skip the salmon.... More

I wanted to love this restaurant but it failed to meet the mark on a few different levels. I made reservations and was there with friends on a Saturday evening. My husband ordered and they were out of what he wanted. I ordered and the waiter said that I made a great choice. My friend ordered and he said the... More

Sophisticated Southern and Gourmet Country are great ways to describe the cuisine at the charming Mack & Kate"s Cafe. Named after two sisters, MacKenzie and Kathleen, our family owned and operated establishment will make you feel right at home. Started in a small, sleepy town, Mack & Kate's humbled beginnings took place in a small service station. This charming little destination dining spot grew over eight years, resulting in the Strawn Family relocating Mack & Kates to Franklin, TN.
We enjoy seeing our friends from our early days and our new friends here in Franklin.
We use the freshest and finest when it comes to our ingredients and always support local farmers and growers. We pride our self in our accommodating and knowledgeable service team and the ability to consistently feed our customers what they are looking for; the freshest from the best.
