My wife and I had a great experience at the Franklinville Inn. The food was excellent and the service was professional, yet friendly. We highly recommend their prime rib! We will be back soon!

I was very disappointed we were seated in the noisiest part of the restaurant. We passed through the main dining area which looked lovely and quiet and we were seated by the bar. Since the dress code was smart casual and we were celebrating my birthday we dressed for the occasion others around us were very casual meaning shorts and jeans. I expected more since hearing all the hype of how difficult it is to get in there. The food was good but would prefer a romantic quiet atmosphere and won’t go back.

Took my wife here for her birthday. We had a wonderful experience and our waitress Vanessa was fabulous! She made the evening quite a success. The crabcakes and crab bisque appetizers were prepared perfectly. Our main course of prime rib and seafood combo were some of the best we’ve ever had! This is a great place for that special occasion or nice romantic dinner.

We had Reservations at 7:30 but didn't get seated and tell 750 there were empty tables in the area that we were seated in, it took us 15 minutes even get a glass of water. We watched other people get seated after us and get there food before us. They ran out of Prime Rib before 8pm and the food they served us was luke warm and had to be sent back. It was painfully slow.

We are very fortunate to live close to the Inn. Their food is always great, the crab bisque is unparalleled. They now take reservations but be advised that you have to make them about two weeks in advance....that's how popular this establishment is. Make a reservation and enjoy!

You will never be disappointed when you eat at the Franklinville Inn. The food and the service cannot be beat. No matter how you order your meat cooked, it will be cooked that way. I like my meat cooked medium rare, not rare and not medium. I hardly ever get it the way I want it, but at the Franklinville Inn, it will always be cooked perfectly. I can't wait for our next opportunity for a perfect dining experience.

We had a very bad experience with our waitress the night we came here. It took her over 30 minutes to bring us our drinks. We ordered a glass of wine and a beer and two waters. When she finally came with our drinks she didn't bring a glass for the beer. She was incredibly slow and disappeared throughout the night. My friend got the manager but that didn't seem to expedite the service or lack thereof. He gave us a card for a free dessert for the inconvenience. We watched a couple who were seated at 715pm get their drinks before us. They also received their salads and entrees before us as well. As they were leaving, our dinner finally came out. I believe management needs to address Kaleigh and help her understand that in a restaurant with a reputation such as the Franklinville Inn's, the service is expected to be top notch. It left us both with a bad taste in our mouths and hesitant to come back. We are repeat customers and never experienced this before.

I could never say anything bad about Franklinville Inn. Food is delicious, service is excellent, ambiance is top notch. Crab cakes are the best I have ever tasted. Stuffed mushrooms, crab Dijon, the ribs, the filets, there is nothing on the menu I could say I did not like. There is no beating the Franklinville Inn.

As always the food and ambiance was amazing. Sadly, which does not occur often, the service was very poor. We waited for everything. We ordered bread and the waitress never brought it. It seemed like the waitress was new to waitressing. Perhaps she needs more practice and direction. Most importantly, I must say again the food, as always, i was amazing.

Very good meal. Thought that making a reservation month and a half in advance that we would be seated in one of the dining rooms, not where the bar was. Pretty noisy Good food over all nice time besides the bar noise.

The restaurant is a lovely dining experience. The atmosphere and service are the best. The food is delicious. I personally did not enjoy the bread as the crust was so tough. I prefer other breads or soft rolls. I am certain many people enjoy the bread though. I do think it is quite expensive. We go out to eat often but not at the Franklinville Inn because of the expense. Please know we save this restaurant for special occasions only for this reason.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, but in the 30 years that I have been going there, this past visit is the first time that I have a complaint with the food. My scallop and shrimp entree was so overcooked and the four small shrimp and the four very small scallops were not worth the price of $32.99. With that said, I will go back but won't be ordering that entree.

It is always a pleasure for my Wife and I whenever we dine there. This time was no exception.
We have been there many times and we both got entrees we have not tried before. The stuffed flounder was the best ever with what seemed like as much crabmeat stuffing as 2 of the crab cakes. I got filet and spare ribs. Filet wad excellent as usual. The ribs were fall-off-the-bone good but not a good as at a dedicated rib restaurant like you find in the South but as good as any in this area.
BTW the baked potatoes are huge. Share one and have the other in your party get a different side.
Give it a try and you will most likely be glad you did.
Save room for the apple pie alamode. It's a quarter of a pie with vanilla ice cream, all home made I was told.
