Ann’s Restaurant

If you find yourself in downtown Franklin, why not pop in to Ann’s Restaurant? This eatery has been serving Franklin diners since 1952. However, after a fire, a renovation, and a name change, Ann’s Restaurant has grown into one of the standouts in the Franklin restaurant scene due to its delicious menu items, and the support of Tara Treatment Center. Proceeds from the restaurant go to the treatment center to help combat drug and alcohol addiction.

What to Eat: The cranberry, apple, and pecan chicken wrap has a zesty and interesting flavor, while the half-pound BBQ, bacon, and cheddar burger will satisfy you for days.

Richard’s Brick Oven Pizza

Nothing complements a Friday better than a great pizza. However, when it comes from the brick oven, it’s even better! Richard’s Brick Oven Pizza is a Franklin staple for the perfect slice of the pie. However, Richard’s has expanded the menu and offers a variety of great Italian choices ranging from pasta, salads, and delicious apps. However, the pizza is what really makes the experience.

What to Eat: Build your own pizza with a variety of options, including bacon basil pesto, Cajun sausage chicken, ricotta-blended roasted red peppers, spinach sun-dried tomatoes, and more.

The Willard

The Willard started out as a large brick house when it was built in 1860, but after a while, it was transformed into a hotel. Since 1990, The Willard has been one of Franklin’s best restaurants, serving up great times, great food, and great drinks. They’ve got a versatile menu, and a great beer and wine list to help complement the culinary creations from the kitchen.
