As always, everything was perfect! Jeffrey, our server, was wonderful! Crabmeat cocktail and sirloin tips for appetizers...amazing. Stuffed shrimp with crabmeat and broiled seafood combo...delicious! Peanut butter mousse pie...no words. Perfect meal, excellent service! Love this place!

Everytime we dine here it's excellent. The food is always great and the service is on point. The courses are never rushed and the drinks are always refilled. The cream of asparagus is by far the best I've had in this area!!! I cannot say enough good things about the Franklinville Inn. They never disappoint and we cannot wait to dine there again!

Servere needed a bit more training. She was very nice but did not pick up dishes when courses were finished. We did order dessert but she was so busy and ran off. My husband wanted an espresso as well. She didn't come back until she delivered the dessert.

We love the Franklinville Inn and eat there regularly. This time it was not as good as usual. Steak was warm and service was very slow.
Would still go back, eat here over 100 times and this was the 1st non exceptional experience.

Always attentive and informed, polite service. Outstanding food but leans toward traditional French style cream and butter. I am beyond quiet, relaxing and not stuffy. Will Mantich even. Everyone appreciates you being there from the maître d’ to the greeter, the seater and servers.

What a truly wonderful dining experience! I was a little concerned to go because the menu looks pricey. But for the overall quality and quantity it is fair. The food was delicious. We started with the Terriaki tips for an appetizer. They were melt in your mouth deliciousness! The salads were unbelievable. And the entrees were beyond deliciousness. My husband had the prime rib and I had the Crab Imperial. And we did end with dessert, cheese cake and creme brulee.
Our hostess Jackie and waitress Lisa were so kind and so sweet. I especially loved that we could actually here ourselves think and did not have to scream across the table to talk to each other. This was such a amazing surprise!

We tried the special that evening - Filet tips marsala with scallops piccata. The scallops were delicious. Two of us were not fond of the filet tips marsala.......can't even pinpoint what is was. This is the first time in many many years that I have not cared for a dish. It will not stop me from frequenting the restaurant.

Our server Jeff was fantastic.

It took over an hour to get our food. Our waiter apologized for the wait twice. When our food finally came, we were told that two side dishes will come out soon. I was almost finished with my meal before my rustic fried potatoes came. My son said his filet mignon was a smaller portion than last time; my scallops didn't have much taste; my husband's beef tip meal was also a smaller portion than last time. On a positive note, the lump crab cake was delicious. We were celebrating our son & his new wife as their wedding was just two weeks prior. Overall, we were disappointed. It will be a long time if we return.

We love the place! We go every two months or so. However, we had to send our steak back because it was not cooked how we asked. A little disappointed because every time we go it’s perfection. They were very nice and comped the meal plus free dessert.

Great place for a steak! I would highly recommend the King cut prime rib. All the trimmings and great service to go along with it too. You have to try the Apple Pie for dessert! The wait staff was very polite and attentive.

My wife and I have attended this restaurant regularly for eighteen years, and we both noticed something different in the food this time around. It tasted as if the recipes had been changed. I heard a rumor (for what it’s worth) that the previous chef left and a new chef has taken over. If that’s true, maybe he/she is trying something new? Trying to put their own personal stamp on the food?It’s only two peoples opinions, but my wife and I both agreed that the food has lost a little bit of what used to make it so great.

The server was spectacular but the food lacked value. I ordered the broiled seafood combination. The shrimp was tough and the portion was extremely small for $38. A small crabcake, a sliver of flounder, 2 medium scallops and lump crab covered shrimp(2). While tasty I just think it too expensive.

We were there celebrating our 38 th Wedding Anniversary. I started with there pina colada ... amazing drink and homemade whipped cream and coconut with a pineapple 😍 the bread is always hot n crusted on the outside and soft in the middle with whipped butter. The chopped salad was delish with fresh and plenty of veggies ... the filet is so tender and delish with au jus on the side... I had the sweet potatoe with cinnamon butter ... which is delish ... I don’t even like sweet potatoe but served with the cinnomon butter , makes for a perfect delight!!! My husband got combination seafood , which was delish also, with a baked potatoe with sour cream and cheddar and bacon smothered on top !!! Service is impeccable .... ended our night with homemade cheese cake with 2 dollops of there homemade whipped cream and salted caramel to dip your cheese cake in !!!!!!! With a pot of fresh coffee , they left at the table for me 😍 Amanda was our server ... she went beyond in every way to make our night perfect 😍❤️ We really appreciate all you do at Franklinville Inn !!! Thank you so much ... Karin and Mike McMahon .... enjoy everyone !!!!!!
