We found this place by accident. Food was good but a little overpriced. Atmosphere and ambiance were nice. However, I would like to see more and better selections on their wine list. This place is good and has the potential to be great!

JJ's has a venue and access to wine lovers that would allow them to showcase truly unique wines. However, it appears little thought goes into the selections and price is not reasonable.

My sister and I were coming back from Nashville and looking for a place to get a glass of wine. We ran across this place by accident. It's in an old house on main street. You can get a table inside or on the porch. We tried some wine from the dispensers then got a bottle and sat on the porch. They have a huge wine selection. We really enjoyed it.

This little place, located in the heart of historic downtown Franklin, is buzzing with lots of wine options, celebrity spottings, local fare, and great service! I went there with some friends and had a fabulous time tasting different wines and enjoyed some delicious food! We started with the Buffalo Chicken Dip and Hummus. Both were served in generous proportions and tasted wonderful. We then moved on to enjoy an awesome cheese platter that looked as good as it tasted! A few of us ordered some flatbreads and really enjoyed those as well. Finally....we ordered a chocolate fondue for dessert. Decadent!! And I haven't even mentioned the whole Wine experience, which was fun and educational. The staff seems to be very knowledgeable about the wines and did a great job recommending wine options to those in our group who were not so savvy about wine. There were a few guys who aren't really into wine, but were very pleased to find that JJs has a full bar with premium liquor and a nice cocktail list. I'd never experienced the concept of a wine-dispensing machine, but am so glad I got to try this concept out at JJs. You can choose from almost 30 types of wine, pouring either a one-ounce, five-ounce, or eight-ounce pour. What a fun way to try wine! They also have a hefty bottle list, but we were having too much fun with the wine machines! You can sit inside in their lounge, where the chairs are comfortable and low, and are surrounding a cocktail table, or you can sit in one of their dining rooms at a table. We ventured out to the porch and enjoyed spending the rest of the evening people watching and having a great time. they also have a quite a bit of seating in the front of the restaurant, if you prefer to sit outside. I LOVED the ladies room at JJs; very stylishly decorated and fun. And I heard that the men's room is something to see as well. While were there, a large party arrived and were escorted to one of the party rooms where they had a private party and seemed to be having a blast! I would definitely look into JJs Wine Bar if I have a private event coming up in the future. The owners, who were both onsite, were nice and inviting. They explained how one of them had opened JJs several years ago and the other, who was a long-time customer recently became a partner. Seemed like they really enjoyed working together.
