Most Irish pubs are not known for their fare, but this one is a great place for lunch. It is right downtown and is a great place that all the locals go to, so you will feel like and be treated like one when you go!

First dined here 6 yrs ago & it's been a fave family spot with repeated visits since. Small pub, so expect a wait. 2 sm. tables for outdoor seating. Daughter swears by portabella mushroom sandwich. Burgers, salads, sandwiches, fish & chips, tasty salmon with a sweet mustard sauce, corn beef (can be hit or miss with fat), other entrees &... More

There are tons of places to eat in downtown Franklin. We decided to try McCreary's while we were waiting for another activity taking place later in the evening. What a delicious surprise! There were two of us, so between us we tried the fish and chips as well as the veggie potato. The veggie potato was a decent size, although... More

The waiter was once but a little abrupt. We had corn beef and cabbage. The cabbage and mashed potatoes were excellent. The corn beef was okay but had too much fat. The place was small which gave it a pub feel. We would eat there again but would not have the corn beef.

First visit to McCrearys and it was good. It was somewhat busy so when we walked in we didn't know if we were supposed to wait to be seated or seat ourselves. I had to track someone down to clarify this. We got a table and placed our order. The waitress was friendly. We ordered shepherds pie which my friend... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in downtown Franklin! I have some Irish in my background and this place makes me smile whenever we go. It is quite small, relatively speaking but its part of the charm. The Fish and Chips with a cold Guinness is a great go-to!

It seems like every time we're in downtown Franklin, we end up here. It's a comfy place, good food. I had a veggie plate that was pretty bland one time- so I just stick to the fish and chips. Hubby and kids always get burgers or chicken. Reasonable prices. Their restroom is interesting - but it must be costly to... More

This is a place where I can relax and drink a glass of wine and listen to Irish music, and bring all my children with me. The Irish music and food is amazing. This is truly my happy place. You can not be unhappy here. Even my nine year old loves it. You leave your worries at the door when... More

Every time I go here I expect to get blown away. I want this place to be great. However I am often not. Service can be slow however depending on your waiter it can be friendly. Tonight it took me 10 minutes longer to get my beer than the rest of the table. The appetizer "Irish Cheese Chips" was a... More

Fish & chips were great, good portion & pretty good beer list. A little loud to hear sometimes, but I'd expect that at a pub.
