Description: Jim and Jerry Chandler opened the first Sportsman's Grille restaurant in 1985 with ten items on the menu. They wanted to recreate a northern hunting lodge atmosphere with fresh, hand-packed burgers, chili, catfish and cold beer. The business and menu have since expanded with the purchase of the Gerst Haus (German-American restaurant) in 1988, opening of Sportsman's Grille in the Village in 1991 and opening of Sportsman's Lodge in 2000. Jim and Jerry's wives, children and sons-in law are now involved in the businesses, which also include Melrose Billiards (opened in 1969) and three restaurants in Evansville, Indiana. The family's passion for good food, comfortable atmosphere and family gatherings inspire them to provide a great all-around experience. The service is friendly and all food is prepared with the freshest, natural ingredients from family recipes.

“Very Good Catfish!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Tried Sportsman's Grille this week and the catfish did not disappoint. The food met my expectations and the high mountain atmosphere was interesting and probably even better in the winter. The servers were friendly and courteous and overall, a very good experience.

“So great!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Just can't believe some of the negative reviews about this place! What a wonderful, hidden, gem! If you are thinking about dining anywhere near the Cool Springs Galleria in Franklin, TN, consider this: great service, huge menu, daily specials, good wines, reasonable prices and possibly the best prime rib ever. They only serve it on Friday and Saturday and have a limited amount. Decor is old west lodge and there are at least 7 screens for sports viewing. But back to food and service: delicious, well-presented, well-priced, all good. Great for just two or twenty. Trust me, you will not be disappointed. Bring a big appetite.

“Outstanding burger”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 via mobile

I and a customer went to Sportsman's Grill on a weeknight, there was plenty of available tables and the service was prompt and pleasant. It is a uniquely furnished restaurant with a broad menu; I recommend the burgers, the one I had was excellent.
