My sister and I were coming back from Nashville and looking for a place to get a glass of wine. We ran across this place by accident. It's in an old house on main street. You can get a table inside or on the porch. We tried some wine from the dispensers then got a bottle and sat on the... More

This little place, located in the heart of historic downtown Franklin, is buzzing with lots of wine options, celebrity spottings, local fare, and great service! I went there with some friends and had a fabulous time tasting different wines and enjoyed some delicious food! We started with the Buffalo Chicken Dip and Hummus. Both were served in generous proportions and... More

We didn't know what to expect when we walked into JJ's and saw the wine dispensers on the walls, but it turned out to be one of the coolest wine concepts we've ever encountered. Being able to walk around and have our own tasting was great, as was the outdoor seating. If you like wine, and want some fresh air,... More

We had time to kill before dinner so we stopped to see what this was about. Passed by it more than a few times but never had time to stop. Interesting concept. You give them your credit card in exchange for a self-serve card that allows you to sample (1 oz.) or buy wine in 4 or 8 ounce servings.... More

After walking all around downtown Franklin we were ready for a relaxing place to sit and rest before dinner..this was the place to do it. We sat out on the front porch which was so cute and had a wonderful glass of wine. they actually have dispensable wine machines so you can buy a "tour of wines" or something like... More

Quiet, sterile atmosphere without background music, TV or other diversion. Selp help wine service with a multi step process for pouring/payment. Will not go back.

Excellent place to meet friends after work! I've not had dinner there, but the snack dishes are excellent.

I loved the idea of the wine-dispensing machines but it wore thin pretty quickly. For as good as it sounds... it is very impersonal. First you go in and hand over your debit or credit card in exchange for a wine card that can be used in the machines. There is a machine with a number of whites, one for... More

This little wine bar is very comfortable - like hanging out at a good friend's house. The staff is laid back, but helpful. JJ's is definitely a great place for a glass of wine, some munchies, and good adult conversation. Highly recommended.

Enjoyed dining at JJ's with a group of girl friends. The back room was reserved for our group of about a dozen of us. I had the Black and Blue Artisan Flat-bread and it was very good. I had their special lemon Martini which was perfect. The friends at our table shared several internationally themed antipastos. I will make sure... More
