On a business trip and no idea where to go. Used recommendations from TripAdvisor, and everything that has been said about this restaurant is true!

Outstanding service, delicious food, and nice atmosphere. The service was the highlight. Great place to meet friends to catch up though it did get a bit loud and at times it was hard to hear one another. Reservations highly recommended.

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.

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...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,...More

There is no dress code. In the greater Nashville area, jeans are always appropriate!
