I went to JJ's with my boyfriend's parents who were in town for the weekend. The experience was new to us w/ the automatic wine dispensing. I thought it was a cool idea though it did kind of take away from the personal experience of having someone pour you the wine and tell you about it. I would suggest to the owners giving a little more history or descriptions of the wines, especially to those who are just beginners. The old house is cute and has a nice patio. Would be great for a casual date night. The food was good though like most reviews extremely pricey. Would suggest the buffalo chicken dip or beef tenderloin. Don't get the bunless turkey sliders. Just a little meatball sized turkey patty. Our service was great. If you just want to have a casual evening sipping wine and talking w/ friends this would be a good place to go.

A great way to try various wines - from inexpensive to very expensive - we liked it so much we went for a late afternoon glass of wine and returned to hear music on a Saturday night !

We went to JJ's to try it out before we went off to a concert and it was OK. The service was lovely, the wine average (and VERY $$$$) and the food good (although again $$). Excpet to pay $6.00 - $10.00 for a HALF glass of wine that costs around $20.00 in the liquor stores.

My advice to the owners? Don't be so greedy with your wine. It may be the raison d'etre but it should not cost the eyes out of your head to get a glass of average wine...especially when it's self-serve!!!

We stopped in at JJ's after a wonderful day touring Franklin. We found the atmosphere to be realxing, welcoming & helpful. The employees were wonderful. They made us feel like locals rather than a day tourist. We look forward to returning to JJ's soon!

Visiting from the Chicago area and this was the first time we had been exposed to this concept. This is a nice addition to Franklin. Wine selection could be expanded, but we enjoyed just the same. We found the "home" atmosphere to be quaint and relaxing. Ended up sitting outside and sampled a few appetizers to accompany our wine selections. Very nice. Will return on next visit.
