Cork & Cow has great food, and the best bar in Franklin. The bartenders are superb, remember your name, and locals gather there and always see friends. Check out the daily specials and the great steaks.

Extensive wine and cocktail menu. High end service and presentation. Excellent Seasonal Specials. Expensive, but well worth the money.

Cork & Cow was really good but the thing we liked the most was the service. It's worth goin to but not overly impressed compared to other choices in Franklin. If you are in Franklin for couple of days I'd certainly try Cork & Cow.
