Atmosphere is nice but not impressed with the menu or food. It's a local restaurant that's never really busy.

I have visited 3 on numerous occasions for both business and personal dining. There is a good variety of choices, including my favorite - the jambalaya- which is almost as good as mine (not so humblebrag). Service is always good, even for a large group, so kudos to 3 for having its act together.

Met a few friends for dinner last week at "3". Food was very good and the service was excellent. Suggest making reservation for parties of 6 or more. We plan to go again!

We had drinks at the bar before going to our table. The place was packed and the acoustics are terrible. We could not hear each other. The acoustics were somewhat better at... More

We went for a nice dinner and were delighted at the nice choices. The waiter knew his stuff and was friendly without being over bearing. A nicer night out in Franklin.

I have been here with family, friends, and coworkers and it was fine for any group. The food is dependably good, the service is usually great. They're always nice to my daughter and will substitute raw veggies for the fries in her kids meal.
