Found by accidemt on one night stay in Franklin. Only about 12 tables. Apparently you can go to bar and put name oneait list. Regulars know to walk in a nd sit at open table. Fish and chips PHENOMENAL. Wanted to try Bailys Irish cheesecake, but too full. All food hot and fresh. Definitely would return.

Went their with family and was very pleased. Relaxing and enjoyable dining experience. Reminiscent of an old English Pub.

McCreary's Irish Pub & Eatery in downtown Franklin is a great stop if you are in the area. It's located in a small, cute little building on Main Street. It is truly a gem. The bangers and mash are heavenly and I highly recommend them. They have a great drink menu, as well. This is an awesome, unique eatery to... More

We visited here for breakfast one Sunday morning. Our decision to dine here was mostly made by the fact we couldn't find anywhere else open but we were very pleased with everything about our visit. Our server was nice and efficient. I can't remember what my wife had but I got the bread pudding French toast and it was amazing!!... More

This was a great atmosphere with great beers and lunch. My boyfriend loved the Sheppard's pie, and I loved my roast beef sandwich. Our server was great and attentive. He told us about many things to do in the area. Loved this place!

The corned beef and cabbage eggrolls are the best I've ever had. The atmosphere and friendliness of the staff is just as though you are in Ireland. Great eats and family friendly.

Only one server and were very busy. Didn't stay because we weren't greeted or even acknowledged. Took it as to the caliber of the food and service

This little restaurant is excellent in every way. My wife and I were out shopping on a hot and humid Saturday afternoon when we strolled across this unexpected gem in the heart of Franklin. We were seated promptly by the maitre d' who made sure we received prompt service. The waitress was informative, professional and attentive. I had an excellent... More

Always our stop when we go to the Franklin Theater (right across the street). Can't go wrong with Shepherds Pie or Fish & Chips. They also have my favorite Irish beer on tap - Smithwick's.

Well I hate to say it but if I was asked if I would come back? My answer would be: "I will yea..." (actually meaning I will not). I usually try to write good reviews, and this won't will not be mean, just honest. So upon entering we were greeted with stares, and this was including the 2 staff members... More
