Description: GRAY'S on Main is adding to downtown Franklin, TN's existing repertoire that makes it one of the most talked about and charming downtowns in the South. Eclectic, yet traditional, GRAY'S menu reflects the best of the South in food, and focuses on locally sourced ingredients. The second floor bar and music hall features hand-crafted cocktails that celebrate the brandy culture of the late 19th century, along with live performances from Music City's finest. The third story holds a casual yet elegant space for our supper club members. At the core of GRAY'S mission lies a desire to honor the heritage of Tennessee's culture, through its spirits, flavors and sounds.

Travelling thru Franklin looking for a place for lunch. Perfect location, fabulous building sympathetically regenerated. Good service, good choice of beers.willing to substitute ingredients in salad. Only slight niggle was price of wine which was pricey but overall a good choice.

“Awesome food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

Looking for a fun new place to eat in Franklin? You have got to try Gray's on Main in downtown Franklin. This place just re-opened a month ago and the food was delicious. Our group dined on the chicken and waffles, the beet and orange salad as well as the lobster mac and cheese. We all agreed the food was superb and our wait staff was very attentive to our needs.
Upstairs on the second floor is another dining space that offers live music on the weekends. Tables in the area are in high demand, so if you want to listen to some great music while eating some outstanding food, go early enough to get a table.
This is a place we will definitely visit again...and again.

“Great New Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

We were taken to the second floor of this quaint, hip new place on a Saturday night. The live entertainment had just taken the stage. Lively and hoppin' is how I would describe this place. Food and service were great. Lobster mac n cheese, waffles and chicken, and the steak with mashed potatoes were the standouts at our table. Very good....will be going back!

“Great addition to downtown Franklin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

The cocktail menu is unique and we can't wait to go back and try something new.
The wait staff is very professional and friendly.
The atmosphere is really nice and fits in with the area.
The food is diverse and it is fun to order several table items and share them.
We look forward to returning.
