Always excels with excellentAlways excels with excellent food and service. My husband said the crab cakes had no filler; every bite was pure crab meat. I thoroughly enjoyed the Parmesan encrusted tilapia. There are several small dining rooms since the Inn was originally a stagecoach stop. So the noise level remains low since there are only about 6-8 tables in each room. We enjoyed celebrating our 45th anniversary at the Franklinville Inn.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMalways have to bring leftoversalways have to bring leftovers home...to enjoy everything a second time! :)6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Franklinville Inn.We love Franklinville Inn.

This is a nice place for anyone to impress a potential client or even a business associate.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable EveningOur recent visit to the Franklinville Inn was very enjoyable. The food was delicious from the appetizers to the end of the meal. It is a very nice place to go for a special occasion or just for an evening out.

The service was fantastic. The Franklinville Inn made our evening so wonderfully special! Thanks for a spectacular evening!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in SJThe Franklinville Inn is the best restaurant in South Jersey. Upon entering, you are greeted by their host, Lance, who makes each guest feel like they are their number one patron. The food is absolutely wonderful from "soup to nuts"~ Their house salad is a bit of heaven on a plate, appetizers are varied and delicious, entrees are cooked to perfection and there is always enough left for take home. Service is excellent and the restaurant's atmosphere is lovely. If you are looking for the perfect dining experience, The Franklinville Inn will not disappoint you! *****6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurantWe thoroughly enjoyed everything about the Franklinville Inn from the friendly, courteous service to the excellent food. The waitress was very knowledgeable and accommodating and, even though they were busy, did not appear to be rushed. We also liked the fact that the tables are not close together and it feels roomy and comfortable.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGood!Food is consistently delicious, but the menu never changes! Great if you want a reliable dining experience once in a while, but not if you are looking for something fresh and new.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AM5 stars!My husband and I have travelled all over the U.S. and Franklinville Inn is still our #1 restaurant. The food is always consistently delicious! They do not have a very large menu, though they have perfected what they serve. We have tried just about everything on their menu. Their house Tomato basil salad dressing is unbelievable and if you love crab bisque, this is the place to have it!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA must dine spot!Even if you are out of the area you should find a way to cross paths with The Franklinville Inn.
Traveling to and from the shore it's a worthwhile detour.
We live in AC and dine out everywhere from NYC, PHL,MIA, FLL. ETC. with this experience I can promise a fantastic food and service experience at the Franklinville Inn.
We ordered Filet tips Oscar, crab cakes and I finally tried the baby backs.
Soup or salad and 1 side included, in today's high end restaraunts that just dosent happen.
All dishes excellent! The servers are super knowledgeable and most professional due to the training they receive.
The rooms are all very quaint and period correct due to historic details.
It's all about the food service and drinks!!!
Can't wait to go back !6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest FiletMy wife and I both had the Filet. It is the single most delicious eating experience I have had. While I am not a food connoisseur by any stretch of the imagination, I found it perfect in every way. Every part of the meal was great. I can't believe how they can make a wedge salad better than any other I have had. Truly a great experience.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingThis was an excellent choice! It has been 5 years since my last visit and I was unsure if the experience would have been the same. It was better! It is nice to know that the restaurant is consistent in its product and service. I would only like to see an area of tables that are more secluded for couples to share conversation in a quiet atmosphere. However, the experience was still a pleasant one overall. .6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMfood and service were veryfood and service were very good. pricing was a little high but worth it. No wait with reservations. Will go back and recommend to friends.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerMy husband and I celebrated a special anniversary this year, our 25th, our Silver Aniversary. So we wanted to have dinner in a special place like Franklinville Inn. It was just perfect! From the wonderful food to the excellent service, it made our night special and very memorable. I can't wait to go back again!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant SurpriseHad heard many good things about the Franklinville Inn, and our first visit lived up to the hype. We dine at all of the best steakhouses, and our steaks were right up there (for half the price)!! Our waitress was outstanding, as was the entire staff! Will definitely go back!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!!!My husband and I went to the Franklinville Inn for our 10 year wedding anniversary:-). The food and service were amazing!!!!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasurable diningwe have been going to Franklinvlle Inn for years and I can honestly say we have never received a bad meal yet. In fact it seems to get better everytime. and that is hard becasue I can not say one bad comment about the Inn.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGood FoodHad the Surf n Turf, Filet was great/lobster was huge. Apps were great and desserts Choco mousse and tiramisu both great.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA Local GemOur roofer suggested that my husband and I dine at this establishment sometime, but he warned us to make a reservation or we wouldn't get in. We did make one, and I am so glad that we did! We were pleasantly surprised with everything about this place- the service, the menu, etc...we never would have believed that such a fine place to eat would be hiding right on route 47. I am planning on coming back with my parents. What a wonderful evening!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentAs good as it gets. A gem in SJ. Food and service is always top shelf. It is always a special night when we go to the Franklinville Inn. Will be back soon.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have dined several timesWe have dined several times at the Franklinville Inn, and introduced lots of friends to it. Not one has ever been disappointed. It's not a cheap evening, which is why it is only reserved for special occasions, however, it is worth every penny. Hands down our favorite restaurant.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMUltimate Dining ExperienceFrom the moment you enter the doors of this quaint, historical restaurant, your ultimate dining experience begins and does not end until you leave through those same doors. This restaurant wrote the book on customer service and their service is only eclipsed by their amazing, culinary talents. This is a must stop on your dining tour and you're sure to be a return customer from then on. Btw, don't forget to finish your meal with a dessert coffee w/ Bailey's (our fav but choose your own) that is topped with homemade lady fingers and dessert cream.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOver the years we have goneOver the years we have gone here about 20-25 times. We have never had 1 meal that did not exceed what we were expecting.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMRegular CustomerThis is about the only real gem of a resturant located south of the Cherry Hill area. Off the beatten path but worth a 20 mile drive 4 - 6 times a year for my Wife and I. Okay for full grown kids too or well behaved younger ones. Our 26 year old.
Great for special occasions (but not particularly intiment) or anytime a truely great meal is desired. Great food and lots of it at a fair price. Figure on $120+ for 2 with a couple of Martines and a shared desert. Appitizer not required but if you must, figure on another $25 for 2 people. Tax and tip included in my estimate.
Closed Sundays. Reservations a must. Make at least 2 weeks in advance for a nice selection of times.Bring your appetite.
Best Prime Rib except what we make at home.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent eats!All the food at Franklinville Inn was excellent! The service is also fantastic & the homemade desserts are divine!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply the best.I believe this is one of the best restaurants in S. Jersey. Hard to beat. Great seafood & great beef. Give it a try.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMHard to beatWere it not so hard to get reservations in under a week we'd frequent this place more often. This is straight down the middle American fare, and they do it better than just about anyone in the lower 5 counties in South Jersey (well, I might give a tie to the Washington Inn in Cape May). Franklinville's cocktails are generous and top shelf. The crab bisque is over-the-top. The prime rib of beef and baby backs: best in the state. Stuffed potatoes and creamed spinach THE BEST I've ever tasted. Desserts are rich. Service very attentive. The atmosphere is moderately quiet (a refreshing change from the noisy chain joints). For a serious date, anniversary, birthday, milestone or accomplishment celebration, this is the place!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and serviceI have been to the Franklinville Inn on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The crab is the absolute best and they get the filet mignon just right which is not an easy feat. The staff are always friendly and efficient.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe thought Lance set the nightWe thought Lance set the night up for us for our 20th Anniversary. He treated us like VIP's. He is extremely entertaining and inviting. He makes you feel like family.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery time my husband andEvery time my husband and I go the Franklinville, we are never dissappointed. The service and the food are always excellent and I don't think we've ever had a complaint about anything. It's our favorite restaurant - especially for special occasions, i.e. this time it was for our 13th wedding anniversary. Excellent as usual!!!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and serviceExcellent food and service added to a wonderful evening with old friends!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat local restaurantWonderful service.Food was excellent. Great neighborhood restaurant.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMA must go....The Franklinville Inn is a must try. The food is a little bit more expensive than some places, but it is well worth it.
The service is exceptional and it is a great atmosphere for special occasions.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe don't go that often butWe don't go that often but when we do go, we always enjoy the Franklinville Inn.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMenjoyableGreat food, great service, great people.
