We've lived in Franklin for 9 years and have always heard how great The Willard is. So finally we go. We walk in and it's smoky. There's no hostess and no sign saying anything like ""Seat Yourself"". Another group walks in behind us and wonders what we're doing just standing there. We admit that we're not sure what else we should be doing and he graciously tells us you just find your own table. So we find one for the five of us. We're not in the bar (obviously since our three young daughters are with us) and yet people are smoking around us. Apparently the Franklin ordinance regulating smoking in public places is not in effect here. There's a handy ash tray on our table in case our 8-year-old would care to light up. ANYWAY, the food arrives. The two grilled cheese sandwiches are burned. The pizza is tasteless except for the dried oregano sprinkled over the top of it. The bill comes. It's almost $50 for two sandwiches, a pizza, an order of fries, and 5 sodas. I won't be going back here. I suggest that you don't go, either.
Cons: Smoking, Priced Way Too High
