Beautiful day for excellent service!

My husband, daughter and I (and our German Shepherd) sat outside a little after 3:00 today. What excellent service! My daughter and I split an order of fish and chips - very light and yummy. My husband had a corned beef and Swiss cheese sandwich that was pretty good, he said. While we weren't blown... read more

I had a hamburger - is was mediocre, lacked much taste and would not get again. My wife had pot pie - average (we love pot pies!) and not too bad. The service was glitch, at best. My hamburger arrived in average time and pot pie didn't come until I was almost done. Service was apathetic, although an apology provided... More

This is one of our favorite places in Franklin. Go on a Friday or Saturday night for the live entertainment, or anytime for the fish and chips and a Smithwicks. Two fish and chips, two beers, $30. And don't forget to tip the musicians!

We went for drinks after having lunch elsewhere, but they also serve food. Cute restaurant and very good service. A great stop in charming Franklin.

Downtown Franklin restaurants on Main St, for the most part are very expensive and have a lot of artsy fartsy food - far out liberal stuff that you would never dream of making yourself like caribou on bean sprouts or tilapia marmalade... McCreary's is an exception. It is a Irish pub and it serves authentic Irish meals. The prices are... More

wasn't sure whether it was family friendly or not. Tried to get into another place and checked it out while on long wait list for other establishment. Well worth it. Totally family friendly and the food was awesome.

We just moved to Mt Juliet a few months ago. Stumbled on McCreary's soon there after and go monthly, more if we are going to the theater! Atmosphere is great, service is superb and the food is scrumptious! My kids are teenagers but absolutely love it! I enjoy a few pints when I can...

Last minute trip on NYE so all places booked for events. Very pleasantly surprised. Fried shrimp was outstanding. Beer cheese soup was excellent. Paul was server and did great job with everything. Small place but has a great feel!!! If in town give this place a try.

Recently we stopped in to McCreary's for a snack and were pleasantly surprised by the food, service & atmosphere of this little pub. Enjoyed the corned beef & cabbage eggrolls & a pint or two. We'll definitely be back for an actual meal soon.
