Had our big Anniversary Dinner at Cork & Cow last night and we absolutely loved it! It wasn't a busy night so we didn't need reservations and we took our toddler with us. Our waiter was great! He was very friendly, gave us all the information we needed, & treated us very well! I told him I wasn't having alcohol... More

Outstanding service and food! Great steaks, sides, and desserts. Recommend the NY strip and the creme brûlée.

Cork and Cow delivered on all levels. The service was fantastic, ambience was fun and lively, and the food was really great. This is one of those places I would go out of my way to recommend. It's not a traditional steakhouse and I mean that in a good way. We went on a Friday night and the place was... More

Really friendly service and nice atmosphere. The butternut squash fritters and bread were very delicious. Our mains were a bit over-seasoned (too salty) which was a shame as we'd heard good things. Maybe it was a one off, I hope so as I really liked the place!

This was our first time dining at the Cork and Cow. We sat at the bar because there were no available tables without a reservation. The bartender and manager were very helpful with our menu selection. I ordered the beet salad and grilled cobia. My husband ordered the burger with a side of gnocchi. Everything was absolutely delicious.

Cozy atmosphere, nice bar, very high level of service. This downtown Franklin restaurant is one to put on your list. Situated in an older building, it adjoins 55 South, but is quite different. The quality of the beef is world class, and pair that with local farm raised sides, assisted by a wine list that delivers, and this is a... More

We had a reservation and were seated promptly. The dining room was extremely loud - not ideal for an intimate dinner. We ordered two appetizers - shrimp risotto cakes (? - no longer on the menu) and grilled lamb chops. Both were very good, with a bit of an exception. There were four lamb chops on the plate with two... More

First, let me comment on the service. Excellent. We are always treated well here. Now the bad. Really an off night in our opinion regarding the food. We had the Wagyu Beef special for the evening. Good presentation, but the steak was VERY tough. Flavor was not the best either. This after a starter of crab meat on lettuce drizzled... More

Over the last few years, This restaurant has been recommended by several clients and I had not had the opportunity to go till now. It is a culinary experience. Our waiter was so passionate about the food. He was knowledgeable, and helped us make our choices from wine to dessert. Everything was really good. We all had the chicken Marsala... More
