    This atmospheric and historic inn lacks a scenic view, but with the always delicious food and charming vintage style touches, there's no reason to look outside anyway. The restaurant does not go in for cuisine du jour trends, although chef specials are creative and well thought out. And delicious. Can't say that enough. From salad (wonderful Caesar!) to dessert (cannot get better key lime pie) your palate is treated to excellence. Consistently. This place is consistently good and prices are on par or less with other upscale/excellent venues. Try the babyback ribs. They are sooo tender and tasty we brag about them to friends. Champagne cocktail was perfect! Though very busy, our waitress made us feel special. Wish we could go every week!

    Our experience at Franklinville Inn was excellent. The food was delicious and prepared to perfection. Our server, Jamilla, was outstanding. She was pleasant, friendly and above all, knowledgeable. Noise level was a bit much. Large party behind us was using foul language and generally disruptive, but that is to be expected in close quarters. We will return to enjoy a great experience again.

    This was an overall perfect dining experience. The table had a window view and it was raining so absolutely perfect setting. The hostess seated us immediately. The waitress was very helpful in recommendations of entree selections. She was attentive but not overly bothersome. We did not feel rushed at all!

    Franklinville, NJ is not exactly a town you'd expect to find FINE DINING but the Franklinville Inn offers that in every sense of such an experience. The food, appetizers and salad all the way through coffee and dessert are as perfect as any place I've ever dined in a lifetime. The ambiance is dim and romantic with a colonial charm reminiscent of a Boston Pub for gathering over mugs of ale to the best of any special occasion. Cost is worth every penny. Wine we ordered turned out to be the best in its category we have yet to taste. Franklinville, Inn is the "polished diamond amongst the sand, sandstone and swamp mud" of South Jersey.

The entire staff is professional and top notch. Now, let's talk about the prices.... I have never seen prices so low for the quality of food you receive.

    We dined this evening and had an absolutely delicious meal along with great service from our server Tiffany. We enjoy dining at the Inn regularly and we certainly have our favorite menu items. The crab imperial is delicious and always piping hot in its baking dish! A must try! I had it served alongside a petite filet, a combo that is no longer on the menu however they always accommodate! My husband enjoys his prime rib medium rare and always asks the kitchen before he orders to make sure it is available. Tonight it was and he said it was delicious! Thank you for another fabulous dining experience!

    Decor was simple but nice place was broken down into smaller rooms, making it seem cozier! Both my friend and I ordered the Queen cut both got a wedge salad and a side I had the creamed spinach and he had the Stuffed Potato. Our other friend ordered the Inns House Salad with Salmon. When the Wedge Salads arrived they were huge, big enough for a meal, plus they were covered with local beefsteak tomatoes (which are great this year)! Tasty salad excellent dressing. Then our Queen cut Prime Ribs arrived, they were at least 3 inches thick cooked and took up the entire plate, couldn't finish it. Creamed spinach was excellent my friend loved his Stuffed Potato and our other friend loved her Salmon salad. Prices were a bit high but worth it!
