Fun place to have a drink!

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.

The soup on the specials board sounded good. My husband and I stopped in for lunch. The bartender suggested the bangers and mash so I ordered that and the guineas beef stew. Both were OK. I liked the chocolate peanut butter porter was better than the food by a bit. We probably won't return.

Over the holidays we had family in town and wanted to explore downtown Franklin. It was about 2PM and we wanted a late lunch so we picked McCreary's. When we first tried to get in the place was packed so we walked down the street and our second choice was also full. When we came back a few minutes later... More

Great spot ,Great Staff, Historic location. Nice change from chains, love craft beers and always check it out on way back from airport with my daughter from the Rock Harbour Pub and Brewery in Maine. She tries the brew I love the tasty corned beef sandwiches. Fun feeling of Eire.
