We were just tryin to find something better than the average please for dinner while visiting Franklin and found this restaurant on Opentable.
Our server was knowledgeable, professional and friendly. The decorations were well intentioned and interesting, even though a couple of elements seemed out of place. Still a good atmosphere and cool vibes all around
The food was excellent. Everything was perfectly executed and each dish we tried had a surprising twist that made it very interesting.
We tried a couple of the starters and I had the burger. I love burgers and keep trying them in many different places. I have to say, this was the best burger I’ve had in a long time. Perfectly cooked medium rare (which I hardly ever get right as most people tend to over cook it) charred on the outside, loved the raw red onion to bring texture and flavor and an awesome sauce. Only a bit of a spicy kick would have make it better. The homemade fries had a vinaigrette sauce that was an outstanding combination.
They have an interesting selection of malty beers that pair really well with their food. We tried an Amber ale, a Maple brown ale and a milk stout. All of them fantastic local beers.
It’s unfortunate we live one thousand miles away or this restaurant would immediately become one of our regulars.
We will definitely return and recommend our local friends

Nice, cozy restaurant in downtown Franklin. Charred oysters were delicious. Cocktails were inventive and well prepared. Bone-in filet was very good. Will return.

Staff was amazing; attentive and entertaining and the wall-eye was delicious. Nice wine list as well. If you are not familiar with the area it is very hard to find. Mapquest takes you to Main Street but entrance is around the corner and hidden. But well worth the hunt!

We had a night without the kiddos, so we decided to do a little something special. We had never been to Cork & Cow, but had heard wonderful reviews. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. Adam, our server, was amazing and made us feel so welcome- almost like we were long lost friends. He really made our experience that much more special. The food- it was absolutely amazing! I highly recommend the oysters. We both had the filet and it was perfect! Definitely add the truffle butter. We will soon be back!

Such a lovely restaurant! I had the filet with bearnaise sauce. Absolutely delicious! Steak cooked to perfection at medium rare. The bartenders are AWESOME! True mixologists. Can make any cocktail you want. One picky little thing is the potatoes on the plate with the filet. Really? A restaurant with this skill can do better than 2 red potatoes with little flavor. But I can even handle that for the service and professionalism! Highly recommend.

First time to Cork & Cow. We were celebrating the end of 8 weeks of daily high dose radiation. We were absolutely delighted with our choice of celebration restaurant!! Every aspect of the experience was first class, from the innovative cocktail offerings, the most extensive Spirits listing we’ve ever seen, to the ambiance, delicious appetizers, amazing steaks and sides, wonderful French Press and attentive service (thank you, Carrie). We will definitely return for a future celebration and bring friends!!

We had a wonderful dining experience. Our server, Kat, was excellent. We enjoyed the duck spring rolls as a starter, and they were delicious. Ribeye steak was excellent, and also highly recommend the Mac n cheese. Nice wine selections, as well. We finished our dinner with the carrot cake/ice cream dessert and it did not disappoint. Would definitely return in the future.
