Frankie Rowland's Steakhouse
outstanding steakBest steak I have ever ate.The lobster bisque ,lettuce wedge, onion rings,mashed potatoes,mushrooms are the best also.I drive two hours for this food and would drive two days if I had to.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial BirthdayWe came from an hour away with 2 other couples. 2 ate the salmon and the rest of us had steaks. We started with Oysters Rockefeller,which were great ,and wonderful scallops. The family size vegetable sides were also terrific.
We had a great time. It is definitely pricey but a terrific spot for a special evening.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat but expensiveGreat food, and great service, but extremely expensive for Roanoke. I guess the great food and great service is going to cost more but $150+/person is quite high for this area. I can get an equivalent experience in NYC for this kind of money. That said, however; I will be going back for special occasions. Our wait person was excellent. Food service timing was perfect. We got what we wanted and the food quality was excellent (as it always is). To be honest, I hope this restaurant stays in business because it is one of the best, if not the best in Roanoke. Paying the high prices, for me, is worth it.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMUnbelievable FoodOnce again, Frankie's didn't disappoint. The filet was awesome. You can't get a better steak anywhere in Roanoke. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Our table was ready as soon as we walked in the door. Can't wait till my next meal at Frankie Rowland's Steakhouse!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a party of four andWe had a party of four and honestly, this was one of the best steak meals I have every had and I have had many - all around the world. Everyone in our group was very pleased. My daughter had the filet, whereas I had the Kansas City strip with blue cheese topping. We requested that both steaks be prepared Pittsburgh style, medium rare - both were perfectly cooked with flavor beyond compare.
For us, on May 18, 2013, Frankie Rowland's delivered perfection. I can honestly say that from the lobster bisque to the main course to the creme brulee dessert that everything was fabulous. What a relief to pay top dollar and to have your expectations exceeded - truly over the top performance. Bravo!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMgammy's reviewThe entrees were delicious. The sides were over-salted (potatoes au gratin) and undercooked (risotto). The service was excellent. We would definitely give the restaurant another try. One more fish dish on the menu would be nice.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.We made reservations at the last minute on major college graduation weekend and they were able to accommodate us surprisingly. Scallop and crab special was cooked perfectly. Wagu tomahawk chop was superb. Service was spot on and relaxing.
This was our first time to visit and won't be our last.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMwhile a little pricey, thewhile a little pricey, the sides are "family style" allowing you to try a few *so take some friends" - the service was impeccable, wine recommendation spot on and the filet melts in your mouth...enjoy.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible steakPerfectly cooked awesome rib-eye.

Bread pudding was superb ending.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWould recommend -a very niceWould recommend -a very nice evening out, pricey but in line with similar steak house facilities.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and great serviceAfter reading some iffy reviews I was concerned about going someplace that typically costs $100pp. But my worries were allayed because everything was fantastic! The service was impeccable and our plates for each course were cleared immediately. It was my son's birthday and everyone, including the manager, came up to him to wish him a Happy Birthday. They even gave him a free dessert. As for the food, there is nothing I didn't love. Two of the three of us asked for light seasoning, based on other reviews, but all three of us loved our steaks and overseasoning was not an issue. The crabcakes and crab dip had huge, yummy chunks of crab meat. Everthing was wonderful! The only complaint I have is there is no valet. :)5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, outstandingGreat service, outstanding ribeye steak, wonderful experience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeWe had our 7th year anniversary here and it was an amazing experience. I would definitely recommend this place for special occasions The martinis were excellent.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMquick noteI would recommend Frankie Rowlands. There were only a couple of negatives. We did have a reservation, but still had to wait about 20 minutes before we were seated. The noise level was quite a bit too high. Although it didn't bother me that much, i can see where elderly people would have a hard time enjoying themselves due to all the background noise. It was hard to hear people at your table talking. The service was excellent as was the food. I hope to be back soon.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOur night at Frankie Rowland'sOur night at Frankie Rowland's to celebrate our anniversary was a truly wonderful experience.
