This evening was to celebrate a special occasion. Frankie’s delivered on delicious food and efficient service. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the cocktails were equally as tasty. We were happy with every part of our evening and highly recommend Frankie’s.

It’s always a pleasure for a special occasion. Tonight we just went for a date night. The service is the best ever. Wait staff is all excellent. Food was wonderful. Best steak I have ever eaten. Seating is comfortable. It always makes my husband and I feel special when we eat here!! We will definitely be back for our next special occasion.

Nice atmosphere, we all had seafood instead of steak and were happy with our choice. The steaks looked very good, had a bad bottle of wine but they took back with no issues. I would go back

Steak was OK, sides were all underwhelming. I got the bone in filet and had high expectations, had a nice texture but nothing blew me away. Have had better steak in Roanoke, especially for the price.

We were seated right away, no waiting. Excellent service by friendly efficient staff. The cocktails are amazing. Great pineapple martini and cosmo. I had sav blanc by the glass with my meal that was really good. My husband ordered onion rings for appetizer. A huge portion was shared with our friends. I ate so many I couldn't finish my steak which was huge and delicious. A great evening.

Great place to dine for our Anniversary! We were in the back dinning room with one (1) other table so it was nice and quiet. Service was exceptional and food was delicious. Never felt rushed. Would highly recommend Frankie Rowland's Steakhouse!

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.

Steak is always cooked to order and is the best in Roanoke. Always select the onion rings as a side.

Acoustics are poor - difficult to carry on a conversation.

As usual, the food was great and so was the service. The wait staff was very attentive, with each one helping the other. We had the filets, which were perfectly cooked and very flavorful. The bread pudding finished up and great dining experience.

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.
