Service was great. Appetizer were dialed in. Oysters- Poke-Peppers. Above average drink menu. Tomahawk was good but not great. Filet was above good but not exceptional. Fun sights and good experience. Best spot I believe in Franklin.

Our son made reservations for a meal at Cork & Cow. We were not disappointed! We both had Filet Mignon, a great choice. The Mac n Cheese is a great side.

I grew up in L.A. and lived in San Francisco. Cork and Cow feels and tastes like home. Bartenders are chemists and pros. We enjoy eating (grazing) at the bar. Have never been let down my food quality and creativity. No meat 'n three here. If you want supersized fast food, this is not for you.

Dinner w/reservations celebrating our Anniversary. The waiter was fabulous and very attentive. We shared the bone-in filet and it was out of this world and plenty to share. By far, the best steak we've ever had. (and we can be steak snobs) Even the accompanying potatoes were different and very delicious. Had the butternut squash fritters and a salad, all... More

It has a Main Street address, but the entrance is on 4th Avenue (same covered courtyard entrance as Meridee's). The food here is delicious and service is excellent. I had a shredded vegetables salad that was outstanding. I was in the mood for a burger, and I do believe this was the best cheeseburger I have ever had. The Dillenger... More

Went there with a group of people so we were able to try a lot of the items on the menu. We started off with the crab-stuffed shrimp and smoked pear crostini....highly recommend both of these. Entrees included the shrimp, scallops, gnocchi (absolutely delicious), herbed elk loin (unbelievably awesome flavor) & filets (cooked to perfection) with macaroni and cheese, fries,... More

Upscale restaurant near the middle of Franklin. Antique decor and delicious food awaits. Pricey but very good.
