Limited vegetarian options They have a nice size salad bar, with sweet and regular baked potatoes but each time I go I loose something like sunflower seeds, romaine lettuce, or black olives. Seams like you can only have one a day. The vegetable bowl, is tasteless, it sits in bland tomato water, it's because with a little bit of work... More

My family and I have been many times to the Boiler Room for dinner. We had the pleasure to eat there on Nov. 5 2016 and had a waitress named Dorene. She had to be one of the greatest waitresses we have ever had. The kids and my wife loved her. Thanks for have great service people such as this.... More

We have ate at the boiler room on several occasions. They have a good selection of foods on the buffet including sirloin steaks.

This place was voted Best Steak in Macon County and I haven't a clue why. My rib-eye was terrible. It was thin, tough, and had no flavor.

I was with a group of people. The service was good and the buffet had a large selection of food to choose from. The potato soup was excellent! I will definitely be going there again.

We went to the Boiler Room before a performance at the arts center. They were serving a buffet. The salad bar was good, but no one was refilling the bowls so choices were limited. The hot bar was anything but. Most of the food was stone cold, or kept above a water bath for so long that everything was dried... More

We will go back. My husband said it was the best steak he'd ever had. And he's eaten a lot of steak. . I had chicken and it was great also. Service was great too. Price was great

Had a party of six at 5:00pm. One had the salad bar. The rest of us waited over 45 minutes for our entrees to be serviced. Then, the menu said it comes with the salad bar but they had potatoes in another section and they cost extra! Bad management decision. Bury the $1.00 in the food price! Hard to get... More

Everything about this place is horrible. I can't believe that a steak house can't even cook the steaks to the right temperature. Not just one but three steaks wrong. The service was also horrible and the manager was rude. Stay away! It's not worth the money. You would get a better steak by going next door.

Going into a steak house in an arcade seemed a little, risky...but the atmosphere is really nice. The food was actually some of the best food my family had while visiting Franklin. Steak was cooked perfectly and tender, the soup was creamy and warm. The staff was also very nice and accommodating. Definitely worth checking this place out if you're... More
