Frankie Rowland's Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
We were seated in the main dining room and there were several Christmas parties that were booked in that room that were rather large and very very noisy. They should have had them in a private room. I felt like I had to scream and my husband for him to hear me and I walked out of there with a very bad headache. I guess making money is obviously more important been maintaining the ambience of the restaurant. I ordered my steak medium and it came out more well then then expected. We dropped all over $300 and can’t say that I’m excited about going back again. Our bill was for only two people at over $300.
Frankie Rowlands is the Best steakhouse in Roanoke. If you want a fine dining experience, with an expansive wine list, and great cuts of steak, Frankie Rowlands is a must. Also waiting at the bar for our table to ready,is quite enjoyable and quaint. This is well known as one of the finest restaurants in the Roanoke area, and lives up to it's billing. A must do for fine dining.
We were seated in the back room next to a scuffed up wall. For the price of this restaurant, I woul expect a higher standard of repair and a bit more ambiance even though the room is behind the main dining room. Overall the food and service were good but overpriced.
Wonderful meal and great atmosphere. Perfect sized portions. Service was a little slow and forgot a second drink order, which took 20 minutes to bring to the table. At that point , do you really want a second drink, when you're done with the meal and the conversations. Food was absolutely fantastic. great smells, great taste, perfect sized portions. Highly recommend for a date night.
The food was excellent ,as usual. The service was well below the standards of Frankie Rowlands. The intervals between service were way too long. Our server, Tiffany, became m.i.a. For much of our "long" stay at the restaurant. No other servers picked up the slack except to push more drinks and dessert.
A disappointing experience at one of my favorite restaurants. Thank goodness we were not in a hurry, and that the food was excellent.
The food was excellent until we got to the dessert. I had a fruit fly in my cheese cake.
I told the waitress and she acted like it was no big deal. Her words were" they come in through in the front door and we can't do anything about it"
The manager came out and apologized and offered me a free dessert.
I will go back.
I normally visit for client/business meetings but this reservation was actually for a corporate staff birthday. Normally the food is outstanding. I raved about how amazing the steaks were before arriving to my out of town guests so naturally everyone ordered the filet. We were all extremely disappointed with the meal. The steaks were very dry and the sear was too extreme. It left a "burnt" after taste. We ordered asparagus as a side but received scalloped potatoes. The waitress quickly removed the potatoes and brought out the asparagus shortly afterwards. The staff is always superb but the meal was very disappointing this time. My corporate staff probably will not want to return which is disappointing.
Reservations for 6:30 on Thursday 9/21/2017. All food is a la carte. Steak portions are very large, perfect if you are a Very Big Person. Garden salad was great, Caesar salads were 1/2 iceberg lettuce?? Steaks were cooked perfectly and seasoned nicely (pepper & salt crust). Steaks rated 9.5/10. Salmon rated 7/10. Crab cakes 7/10. Old Fashioned drink 5/10. Moderate beer selection. Good service except after Huge Bill came ($240 for 4 people (2 beers, 1 drink, 1 water) waitress disappeared for 12- minutes! Finally asked passing waitress to take up our payment. The atmosphere was ok for 1990 but sort of tired looking today. Most memorable part of the meal by far was the Huge Bill ... and the leftover steak portions. Why don't they offer smaller steaks like maybe a 10,12,14,16,18 oz rib eye for normal size people? Who eats a 20 or 24 or Cowboy steak in 2017? We have no reason to ever come back.
excellent service and nice ambience. Back dining room less noise and less traffic.
service was excellent,menu well described,good wine list. Butter served with bread was lacking in flavor , bland taste
charred waygu steaks served in too much (olive ?) oil for my taste,left much to be desired and cut was not thick enough to be so deeply charred whole cloves were too intense and heavy amount in salad Maybe just a hint. Overpowered taste when biting into the clove
charred meat appetizer seasoned excessively with salt ruining the dish
excellent peach brioche dessert
Delicious krispykreme bread pudding
Frankie Rowland's never disappoints. I took my wife out for a quiet dinner to spend time after an out of town business trip. I requested a cozy window table in their overflow (Pollard) room. Frankie Rowland's not only honored my request, they did so even though we were the only couple in the Pollard Room. All other diners were in the main dining area. This made our evening extra special. Our server Kaitlyn was world class...personable and professional. Our martinis and filet oscars were perfect, as always. This is my wife and I's favorite restaurant anywhere. Fortunately for us, it's right in our hometown. Thanks Frankie Rowland's for going the extra mile for us. We look forward to returning soon.
Has been our 'go to' favorite place for special occasions- in this case our anniversary. We were very disappointed. We sat on the right side with me sitting on the booth type seating and my husband in a chair which was considerably lower. Ok- but the food is great, right? No.
Although our reservation was early evening, the salad special was already sold out. The brussel sprouts were charred and the au gratin potatoes were dry-looking like yesterdays pre-plated reheat. My lamb was not fresh and my husband's fillet was an uneven cut so it was cooked from well done at one end and rare at the other. Our chilled bottle of wine kept traveling and once had to be rescued from a return trip to the kitchen. In the past the pricy check was worth the great meal, but not this time. As we left and rounded the corner, we had the 'pleasure' of seeing the kitchen staff out on the sidewalk smoking and vaping. I hand wrote a letter about our experience and never had the courtesy of a reply. We don't mind paying for good value but that was not the case.
