    I expected this to be one of the best restaurants in TN since Red Pony blew me away. Honestly I wish I didn’t go since the food was mediocre and the bill was way higher than called for.

    This was hands down the best dining experience we’ve had in the area. The food was absolutely delicious. But more than that, the service was incredible. Our server was amazing and attentive. And all of the staff made this feel like an experience, rather than just a meal out. It was a wonderful experience.

    First time we came the vibe, service and food were off the charts excellent. Our recent visit was good however it was so loud our server could hardly communicate and the food was good but not of “next level” quality.

    Was thoroughly impressed at Cork & Cow! I had looked at their website many times but never been! They are fairly expensive and I was a bit worried but the quality of the food was on point! I’m glad I went and will be going back! Our waiter, Barry, was super knowledgeable! Thanks for a great birthday dinner! We had gone to Stoney River the night before and C&C beat them by far!! They catapulted their way into one of my fav special occassion places to eat.

    This is a nice spot for a decent local steak, I biased down to 3 stars because it’s currently rated so high but this is not a 4 or 5 star steakhouse. It was nice, service was super friendly, the potatoes that came with the tomahawk bone in were fantastic and the meat was cooked well (medium was a nice pink, closer to medium rare just as the server said it would be). But the rub on the steak was way too salty so it’s really hard to tell the quality of the steak itself, and the sides were lackluster. Still one of the better steaks in Franklin, but not on par with the top ones in Nashville.

    Every aspect of our dinner was excellent. We were shown to an out of the way table as requested when we made our reservation. Our waiter, Adam, was excellent. He was knowledgeable about the menu and was totally committed to providing an exceptional dining experience. The food was spectacular. Every dish was perfectly prepared. We had never dined at Cork & Cow before. We wanted to try something new. We did not expect to have such a wonderful time on Father’s Day when restaurants are busy, but we did. Cork & Cow provided a totally enjoyable dining experience. We were never rushed and received great food in a timely manner with excellent service. We will definitely be back.

    Cork & Cow has always been a favorite of ours for date night. With two littles, it’s so hard to get a night away, so we were really looking forward to a nice dinner and early celebration for Father’s Day. Unfortunately upon arrival, it was EXTREMELY hot. As in, the AC was not working. None of the staff ever addressed it. Our waiter was attentive at first, but then completely ghosted us! We ordered an appetizer that was never brought out, then an hour and a half later, our food came out. And it was just ok. This was such a disappointment, especially since we never get out and had gone out of our way to find a babysitter!

    The food was incredible and the service was FANTASTIC. Took a gal I was dating here and we went to the Natchez trace bridge after and I made her my girlfriend. Incredible date spot, very fairly priced and probably $100+ cheaper than a downtown Nashville steakhouse.

    Our experience was great. Eric (or Erik) was our waiter and he was terrific. The only complaint I have with him is that he let my son and daughter-in-law sneak their credit card to him to pay our bill instead of telling them that restaurant policy is to let the old geezer pay. But, in all seriousness, he was very good and we enjoyed the experience immensely.

    Seated right away, great wait staff. I had scallops and shrimp which was very good, my husband had the bone in ribeye but said it was not worth the price. We had reservations at 5pm, it was nice and quiet but by 6:00 it was very noisy and unable to carry conversation.
