Dinner was good. Steak was DELICIOUS! Scallops were ok. Table downstairs closest to the hostess table was a terrible seating situation. Our actual 2 seat table was too small. Pushed up against the bar area and uncomfortable. Nowhere to lay the gigantic menus while enjoying...More

I have to be honest and say that I have not been ecstatic about any steak in Nashville or Franklin yet. Coming from NY maybe I'm asking too much?
