Robby, the manager, is one of the most personable people I have ever met. He handles things flawlessly. Casey, our recent server, ensured we had a lovely evening. The food choices are varied and appeal to a variety of tastes. Guests have always raved about the selection and the setting. A real winner!

There were six of us who went in to have lunch and we were all very pleased with what we got. Our waitperson Casey was really good and he made us feel welcome and that we had a memorable experience. The food was delicious and we weren't rushed to leave. I would recommend this restaurant without any hesitation.

Root + Barrel is a great choice for lunch, dinner, or drinks. The atmosphere is great inside and there is an outdoor seating area as well. There are lots of great entree choices, but I'd suggest you order the pimento cheese appetizer before any entree selection - it's great! We've always enjoyed attentive service, and Casey, on this recent visit, did a great job as well. You can tell that the restaurant manager is very involved in the execution of everything that goes on - he is very visible and busy making sure all is running properly. It's nice to see an involved manager and no doubt why the Root + Barrel is a great choice for dining in Franklin.

I had the chicken pesto on croissant, with special of the day seafood chowder cream based. She had steak sandwich. By chicken was over cooked and croissant toasted to resemble a hamburger bun. Over seasoned. Her steak sandwich was also over cooked with hard sub roll and soggy French fries. I was unimpressed and won't be going back. Went there from an article in local magazine. On a good note they have a large bar. Skip this place
