    The Roadside Cafe across from the Franklin Country Club on the Wrentham line was alway's good. Great hash and Biscuit's with sausage gravy.

      Another option is the buffet at Lake Pearl Luciano. I was just there for the first time this past Sunday...checking out the hall area for a wedding. It's a little pricey (~$16 I think), but they had a good spread.

        James' Roadside Cafe has gone out of business. The King Street Cafe, just off I-495 at the King Street exit in Franklin (the next exit north of the Wrentham Village Outlets) serves a wide variety of breakfast dishes until 3 p.m. My favorite is the Steak Tips Benedict. Great home fries.

          I don't even want to tell you about Tom's Tavern but what's a Hound to do?
          Count on a great seafood lunch/not brunch, and also count on calling ahead.
          This is as good as seafood gets in the Southern 'burbs. Nice selection of ales too.

            I'm always up for some good seafood - what do you recommend there?

              I don't mean to sound coy, flippant or smug but anything and everything on the right-side of the menu (seafood) is all good.
              If pressed, spitting between two people, it would start with cherrystones AND oysters on the half-shell. Followed by seafood chowder, R.I. style crabcakes, mussels marinara and Calamari Ala Tom. Sound like too much seafood? Not to me :-) There's lots more available, including moo & cackle, than the on-line menu would indicate, including daily specials. Oh, BTW, if fried oysters are on special I'm definitely all over that.

                Northstar22 is absolutely right about staying in the main room. Sorry I didn't mention it but it wouldn't occur to me to sit anywhere else :-)

                  What's a crabcake RI style? Didn't realize they had their own style.

                    Hoo boy, nice catch Joanie!

                    What this aging boomer MEANT to write is R.I. Style clam cakes.
                    Clam cakes - not crab cakes :-(

                      I wondered if that was what you meant. I have to say, go expecting giant puffs of dough with a minimal amount of clams and you'll be okay. My first clamcake was a disappointment (thinking it *would* be crabcake like).

                        Not here Lady, all clam cakes aren't created equal. These are moist and laden with clam bits.

                  Sorry to hear the roadside folded..I really liked it when I lived in Franklin.
                  Tom's is a great choice if you want seafood. I love the Cajun Catfish dinner or sandwich. Certain day's they used to have all you could eat Crablegs or Lobster.
                  The service can be touch and go but stay in the main room and not outback and you should be good.

                I absolutely love Harry's Diner on Rte 9 in Wesboro, which isnt too far from Wrentham. Breakfast, lunch or dinner - all the comfort food you could want, and it all tasts great! Fluffy omelettes, crispy bacon...we get there about once a month - their lunch/dinners are awesome as well, especially their fried whole clams.
