Pub Fare and Beer, what could be better!

A nice selection of regional beers make it a nice place to stop in and take a load off. We split an order of cheese fries. I never expect much from cheese fries. Even when they are just ok, its still fries covered in cheese so whats to complain about? These are darn good I have to say. You don't... read more

The food overall is okay but the service was dismal. We waited for 5 minutes for a menu and then 10 minutes for water and then finally had to go up to the bar to ask to order food. Even then, our waiter came by once in 20 minutes (about 19 minutes after our food arrived). Maybe it was an... More

We were visiting from Alabama. We visit Nashville a few times a year and are always looking for eateries that we don't have at home. This time we ventured to Franklin. I ordered the Bangers and Hash appetizer as my meal and I loved it. Others in my party ordered the chicken club and the Fat-Irishman burger. We all tasted... More

I was visiting friends in town, and they recommended this great little Irish Pub. I was killing some time, and dying for a quick bite. Kristin, my server, was the epitome of what any wait staff person should be: knowledgeable about food and spirits, as well as what to do while it town. Did I mention she was refreshingly polite...

Always a fun place to have a pint and some Irish food! They have really good wings too! If you like them hot, ask for their options - you can get them really hot if you want. Fish and chips are delicious as is the pot pie. Friendly vibe. Some tables are larger and they may ask to seat others... More

Small cozy atmosphere. Typical Irish pub fare - Shepherd's Pie is good. Nice place to enjoy a beer or meal on the sidewalk and watch the world go by.

Quaint atmosphere, with windows to Main Street, OR try eating outside to fully enjoy the downtown Franklin area. Enjoyed a nice lunch of fish and chips. Would definitely go back.

My husband and I stopped in on a Tuesday evening after walking Main Street. The atmosphere was comfortable and inviting. Loved the decorations and the food was top rate. We had the burgers and I can only comment on mine because I didn't get to try my husband's before it completely disappeared! Mine was one of the best burgers I've... More
