Hang with the locals and maybe get lucky at this cozy Irish pub. – In Short
McCreary's is the spot to make friends over dinner. This cramped but charming eatery, with its long, communal tables and friendly vibe, is a favorite in Franklin where residents, from 20-somethings to retirees, have made it their hangout. While most of the menu items have Irish-sounding names, there's lots of American grub. The fish-and-chips, satisfyingly crunchy cod filets with thick-cut fries, surpass expectations.
The Best Spot in Downtown Franklin – Great food. Laidback service. 2 for 1 specials from 3-6 daily. It's definitely my favorite spot in downtown Franklin. This isn't the place to come if you expect fine dining and a quiet atmosphere. Live Irish music on Friday and Saturday nights. I love my pint of Woodchuck!
The Greatest Place on Earth – McCreary's is fantastic. The fish and chips are better than just about any in the world...I had one plate in Hawaii that was better, but I had three other plates in Hawaii that McCreary's beat, hands down. The burgers are great, the corned beef is great, everything is delicious. In addition to the food, the delicious beer always flows. And contrary to another review, McCreary's (currently) serves beer out front. They always have, but the State has been finicky on allowing it. It may not be "romantic", but it is good for romance. I even got engaged at this place I love it so much!
Incredible Food and tons of choices – This is my favorite place to go in Franklin, TN. Not just because of the location in beautiful downtown old historic Franklin, but because of the incredible people that work there the pub and eatery is such a delightful experience that you will find your taste buds wanting more and your heart saying lets do it. This is a must eat resteraunt. Try the Fish & Chips or the incredible guiness stew. I always get a blackvelvet (half guiness and half woodchuck cider. You have my thoughts now go and you will have your own wonderful experience.
Poor Service – I've tried McCreary's several times hoping that I just had a bad experience the last time. Everytime i've eaten there, the food has been wonderful, but the service is horrible. I felt like we were being waited on by the owners son who didn't really want to be there. He didn't seem to care that we were out of drinks, had no silverware and our order was incorrect. This happened on more than one visit. It's a shame because it has great potential but a penny was all I was willing to tip.
Not bad at all – Not much of a traditional pub atmosphere.... room with bar at the end, several tables in front of bar.
However, while the food is above average (Fish and Chips being the staple), could use more selections. Good pint of Boddingtons!
