Used this place for years and very satisfied and recommended it often. Recently, placed order, waited and waited for food. Had to reorder and order was incorrect. Excuse was lots of new personnel.

This is a very nice place to eat & the food is ok.....but their seating area is small, especially in the winter when you can't eat outside. The couple of times I've eaten here, it has been way too crowded & way too loud.

Downtown Franklin is quite an enjoyable little town - very clean and lots of Friendly people. Plenty of parks and walking trails. Service a little slow when they are busy but atmosphere is great - food is typical bar food but does encourage family dining

We went for drinks and dinner. They were pretty packed kind of loud ,but their pizza was pretty good! Their waitress was kind of busy I felt unattended by her. Good place though.

We had a group of about 10 people. The place wasn't super busy when we arrived but our food took quite a lot time to arrive. Food was just okay, nothing that really stood out.

As Hoosiers, we have felt it our responsibility to track down some of the best breaded tenderloin sandwiches in the state. We have tried restaurants and bars all over the state and none can compare with the sandwich provided at The Willard. We thought it was well worth going out of our way to try it. The atmosphere in the... More
