Fantastic dinner with friends! The outdoor patio is lovely and creates a charming atmosphere for any occasion. The wait staff were attentive and the food was excellent, however, most important were the unique cocktails with in-house distillery. Highly recommend for your next night out, you won’t be disappointed! Beth and Pat Downing are amazing owners and take the time to check in.

This was our first time here and I was really impressed. There is a beautiful outdoor patio with string lights and umbrellas. The cocktails were excellent and the food was delicious- we had the margarita flatbread, truffle fries and boneless bbq tenders. Our server was very knowledgeable about the different spirits they make and had good recommendations. We will definitely be back.

My only recommendation is to incorporate a small selection of beer and wine into the menu to meet everyone’s preferences as some people may not drink hard alcohol.

The food was fantastic! The cocktails were wonderful! We tried 4 different cocktails and each one was perfect. The chocolate molten lava cake for dessert was the best I’ve ever had! All in all, we will be returning. It was a great experience!

Beautiful spot. Excellent food—we were a party of 6 and everyone enjoyed their meal and drink. Salmon was amazing!

Not sure what the mushy pancake like bread thing that was put on the table in the beginning was but it was not good. The Salmon was excellent. I didn't like the guacamole, it looked brown and old and the broccoli was slightly burnt so the entire dish was only so so.
We also got the lobster campenelle. There was hardly any lobster and the campenelle pasta didn't have a nice flavor. There were a ton of onions, so if you like onions that would be good. The dish was over priced in my opinion.

If you like hard alcohol then naturally you will appreciate their drinks, but if you don't drink the hard stuff you may as well go somewhere else b/c their are no other options.

Wonderful ambiance- great setting. Food was very good. Bar service was slow and drinks limited. No beer or wine, only hard stuff. I was looking forward to a bourbon or whiskey-the batches won’t be ready for 9 months. Had to have fruity drinks with dinner. The owners are pharmacists and great people. Worth checking out.

It was a great experience and the restaurant is nicely appointed, awesome touches throughout. The food was fresh, inventive and unexpected. A limited menu, but what’s offered is done well. Loved our meals! The only downside is the limited bar - no beer or wine. I get it, they are a distillery. But, I really enjoy a beer or wine and not always a mixed drink with my meal. That was our only downside. It’s nice to have an upscale eatery in Franklin. All around great dining experience!

Lovely meal sitting on the patio. Interesting drink selection. Service was great. Enjoyed chatting with one of the owners about the distillery. He stopped by and talked to all the tables.

Patio tables well spaced, servers all wore masks and there was even GlenPharmer hand sanitizer on every table.

I recently moved to the area and passed by this place and wanted to try it out of curiosity with my wife. Typically we go to breweries but wanted to try something different as we enjoy a good whiskey and gin now and then. I made my reservation online with ease and arrived with no difficulty. Everything was clean, staff were wearing masks, cleaning down tables from previous diners and everyone was a safe distance apart. We were mostly excited to try to mixed drinks as well as the food. Sadly whisky would not be ready for a few more months at the earliest so I got “Cool as a Cucumber” and my wife got a “Gin Ginger”. As much I wanted to enjoy my drink the longer it sat the harder it was to get down due to the saltiness. At first it had a refreshing light quality to it but soon the salt got to be too much for me, I regret I could only finish half. My wife was able to finish hers but it was a bit strong for her liking. As far as food goes we started with a cup of clam chowder and some pickled spears which were hot, delicious and crunchy! The soup was fantastic, light creamy broth and full of clams, I wish I got the bowl, next time. For entrees we chose the ABLT and the Burger, the ABLT had rich savory bacon full of flavor and my burger was perfectly cooked (Medium Rare) with a great char on it! One of the best burgers I have ever had period! Prices were a bit higher than what we normally pay but honestly I think it was well worth it. I look forward to going back when the whisky is ready.

Very disappointed in that our reservation specifically requested outdoor seating and when we arrived we were told there was no outdoor seating available. We were not notified of this situation in advanced.

Had we known in advanced, we would have cancelled the reservation and gone elsewhere.

On the plus side they did offer us a free appetizer.

This place is exactly what this area needs. They’ve done a great job updating & modernizing with an industrial vibe. We had the arancini app & 2 flatbreads- both tasty & done perfectly with just the right amount of char & still thin & tender & large enough that we each took half home. Now the cocktails...definitely the stars of the show. Delicious & creative. I had a cucumber drink (can’t find the menu online for the names) that was really unusual in a good way. Infused with herbs & a little bit savory. Then the chameleon gimlet - a science experiment in a glass! Started blue & comes with a little bottle of lime juice. When you pour it in it turns pink! Then for “dessert” I had GP martini which had honey & earl grey tea. My husband had 2 Bees Knees & a classic gin martini with 2 blue cheese stuffed olives. All were amazing! And our server was the best - funny, outgoing & attentive. So glad to see them doing well in this uncertain time.
Be aware when you make a reservation if you want outdoor seating & you only see “standard” then it’s not available. If it is available, you’ll see both options. I didn’t know this & put a note to request outdoor seating & was told this when we arrived. I was a bit disappointed. It definitely should be made clearer.

Food and drinks excellent. Bought their vodka. They did a great job with the renovation. We were a little disappointed as we requested outdoor dining and had to eat inside. First time dining indoors during pandemic. Will make sure we call next time and request outdoors for sure

Great experience. We sat inside because they were fully booked outside for the night.
Kristin was our server and she was fabulous. She was attentive and knew the menu very well.
They expanded their food menu so there are several great choices for all.
The pork chop was tender and flavorful. The sausage flatbread was very good. The drinks were excellent . Highly recommend.

GlenPharmer is an especially wonderful spot for outdoor dining! The service is outstanding, the drink list is fun, and the food was very good. I like to cook myself, so for going out, ambiance and service are what make it special for me. We were there for my birthday for dinner recently and ate on the bridge. Would highly recommend it and would definitely go back!

Amazing dinner and drinks for a girls night tonight. Had the fish tacos & pickle spears for apps—both yummy. For dinner we had the Lobster Campenelle, Bistro Chicken, and Southern Chicken sandwich. All great portions and very flavorful. Service was excellent, Bridget was so knowledgeable and sweet. Drinks were all delightful, made with the liquors they distill there. Can’t wait to go back!

We’ve been here a few times now and the food and drink are fantastic. This new restaurant is an exciting addition to our town. Creative craft cocktails with house spirits have been delicious. We had the octopus appetizer and it was cooked perfectly. The flavors in the lobster entree were also perfection. The chipotle chicken flatbread is one of our favorites so far, too. One recommendation- While both my husband and I have enjoyed the cocktails (and the tasting flight), my husband is a beer snob and is hoping for some taps at the bar eventually.

Our first visit but definitely not our last!

We were seated in the covered bridge which was beautiful! Went with recommendations from our knowledge & friendly server, Connor. Octopus & fish tacos were fresh & outstandingly favorable as well as the Margherita flatbread. Cocktails were perfectly crafted and refreshing. S'Mores with a twist & the donut dessert was a perfect ending!

COVID precautions were well done & employee temperature checks were observed.

Can't wait to return!

Great place! Food was good! Service was good! We sat outside on the patio at night, the only downside to this was the mosquitos were insane! Each table did have complimentary bug spray which was helpful, but still got bit. Mother Nature issue, not restaurant issue...
