This is a wonderful restaurant that I highly recommend. Great service and excellent food and dining experience
Undercooked filet mignon (ordered medium but it was cool and deep red in the middle) lobster tail tasted like it was spoiled or old, water crackers served with crab dip..that seemed cheap, bruschetta would have been higher end.
Excellent meal and great service - would return on our next visit to Roanoke
We had a party of 7 and had to eat in the conference room rather than the main dining room. My wife was unhappy with this, however, a couple of desserts were complimented which we all appreciated.
Pretty great place, a bit pricey but worth the customer service level. Not really impressed with the types of customers they let in. My date and I had to listen to some rejects from the Jerry Springer show loudly discussing fist fights and drama they had been in recently, among other things. (Not really the type of people I imagine being surrounded by when I make reservations at a cultured restaurant). Other than that, everything was fantastic! Service staff was amazing, food was divine. Will possibly repeat (on a slower crowd night).
Great experience as always. We have started several traditions by eating at Frankie’s on holidays and special occasions. The food quality and service is equal to or exceeds Morton’s and Ruth Chris. We highly recommend Frankie’s to anyone visiting Roanoke—it will be a grand experience. Our steaks were charred more than usual, Pittsburgh style. A wonderful surprise. We will be back for Thanksgiving. No turkey for us.
The food was the best I’ve ever had at Frankie’s. The steaks were on point, and all the sides were scrumptious. It was nice to see so many people out during these times with so much enthusiasm and great energy in the space. Thank you for being such a lovely place together. We were in with friends from out of town and had the best time ever!
Amazing service and food. Very knowledgeable staff. Definitely made our anniversary a great one.
First time out dining since the world changed. The staff took all appropriate precautions while maintaining excellent service and great food.
We've been married 56 years. We still try to make each and every anniversary celebration "special". Frankie Rowland Steakhouse is a 100 mile (each direction) drive from our residence. This was our fourth return visit to this fine restaurant. The entire staff is doing an excellent job. The food was supurb!
Loved the food and the service. We will be back when you all are back in business. Thank you for a fantastic birthday celebration.
The steamed lobster was some of the best I've ever had! Everything was phenomenal. We will be back!
Went there over the weekend to celebrate a friends belated birthday. Food was great as usual - but the service was really not up to par. Took forever to get some of the drinks. About 10 minutes to get sauces for one of the appetizers. And the end of the meal we were talking and the server kept coming over - it was seemed clear that she thought we were taking too long (and it wasn’t that they were busy and someone was waiting for the table which I could somewhat forgive).
This is my favorite restaurant in the Roanoke area - my wife and I go there multiple times a year. This visit was disappointing. Hopefully just an off night! Would still recommend highly as this was really not typical at all!
Excellent venue with dress code clearly posted on their door and website. Highly recommend for a romantic date night!
It was a very special dinner and outstanding evening. Our waitor was excellent. Excellent service, excellent food and excellent staff (every staff member). We will be back.
Overall experience was great! Staff was wonderful - only negative was the premium filet was not cooked Med-rare as ordered - more on the well done side
It made for a wonderful wedding night
Always have a great time at Frankie Rowland’s! Food was exceptional! Service was great!
It was amazing. Everything was perfect. The wait staff was very attentive and the food was delicious.
Thanks for making our business dinner a wonderful experience.
Excellent meal. Steak was perfect.
Great all around!
The service was outstanding once we were seated. Our table was not ready at the time of our reservation. Food was good with the exception of the asparagus which was large and undercooked. Need by the glass wine selections. Tables were so close we felt we were dining with other people that we did not know.
Really great steaks and the onion rings crush.
Great food and service!
One of the best if not the best steakhouse in this area. We will be returning.
Caesar salad the lettuce was very bitter. The dressing was very mild and tasted like mayonnaise and egg mixed.The lamb chops were ordered medium rare came out well done. The hot lava cake for dessert was cold inside. Would not recommend or return; this has been our second bad experience with this restaurant. When you are paying between $200 and $300 for two dinner for 2, you do not expect this type of food quality!
Great food and service but VERY loud.
Medium rare steak was barely pink. Baked potato was clearly not their normal menu item which is usually amazing for a baked potato. Frankie's is often the best meal in Roanoke but was very disappointing this last time.
This was our first dining experience at Frankie Rowlands. We were impressed and will return. FR is Roanoke's premier steak restaurant. It rivals Flemings, Ruth's Chris, and Mortons found in larger cities. We selected filets that were perfectly prepared. The steaks were crusty and flavorful. Perfect! We shared a wedge, au gratin potatoes, and Brussel sprouts. All excellent. FR's service is delivered by a team of wait staff. Hunter was our team captain. The only mishap was in serving the wine. The Sommerlier in training struggled to open and pour the half bottle of Hess Cabernet Sauvignon. Our main course had been served and we were delayed in eating while the food was hot. FR's wine list is extensive and pricey. Wines by the glass and half bottles, however, are somewhat limited. We concluded our dining with the molten chocolate cake. Delicious!
Just simply outstanding! We try to dine here every time we're in town. We celebrated our birthdays here this past weekend and it was fantastic, as always! Can't wait to go back the next time we're in Roanoke!
Lovely service excellent waitress who is a bit overpriced for they under Jones Very friendly staff welcoming however the noise level could use some baffles
While the flavor of the food was excellent the lobster bisque was just warm even though the server reminded everyone to be careful of the hot bowl. Also, the creamed spinach was delicious but barely warm. The fillet was cooked perfectly and the creme brulee was the best I have ever had even in a French restaurant. The server couldn't have been more attentive and knew how not to disturb our dinner conversation. Overall it was a very enjoyable evening.
We get here a few times a year and it never disappoints. Looking forward to my next visit.
Always a pleasure to visit.
Awesome service and meal! We would highly recommend Frankie Rowlands to friends and family. The pour on the wine were substantial and we love the variety of offerings!
See you soon Frankie Rowlands!
Decent meal for restaurant week!
This establishment had excellent service. Food was also very good. My husband and I had the honey bourbon salmon and a 7 oz. filet. Both were cooked to perfection. We also had the crab dip for our appetizer which was very good. We finished with molten cake and cheesecake for dessert. Both desserts were excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant although it is pricey.
We always enjoy going to Frankie Rowland’s! The food is delicious and the service is amazing!
Outstanding dining experience.
We have made this trip to Frankie’s a yearly tradition over the last several years and I can say we will be picking another restaurant next time. Our food to forever to come out the excuse was given that a large table came in before us. They could have at least offered us an appetizer to offset the waiting time. The bread on the table was small and tasted several days old. Of the six steaks we got two of them were so over done that we had to send them back after requesting them to be medium. Upon bringing them back the second time they were raw in the center. Finally they brought them back after everyone at the table had finished and all sides were completed and they were accepted because we were starving!! Sorry to see that Frankie’s has gone down hill.
