Had dinner with old friends from California and had a wonderful time. Franky's is a trip and our friends loved the atmosphere. Food and drinks were excellent, but the best part was our server, Nicole I think was her name, who was so friendly and genuine, helpful with menu recommendations and just a delight. We'll be back!

I was disappointed because the food was not great, we always had to look out for a server, the food options weren't explained to us clearly and the worst thing that a hostess caught her hair on fire while wiping the table and it smelled really bad and no one came to us to ask how we felt about that. Staff should cover or put back their long hair when working at the restaurants, so that their hair is not a distraction. Sorry, I wish I could write something positive, but I really had a poor experience.

This is a an out of the way restaurant that has an eclectic ambiance and terrific food.
We started out with the Franky's Fries that were outstanding. The combination of meat and cheese make for a perfect combination
Our entrees included Shrimp and Polenta which again was terrific. The spiciness was just right. We also the the burger and the chicken sandwich. All excellent choices.
Service was prompt and friendly. They make an effort to make you feel comfortable which adds to the dining experience. I would definitely recommend.

Great options, and I love that they offer the regular menu alongside the Restaraunt week menu. I wish their options had more vegetables but it was good and I would go again :)

Took 7 of my workplace friends to this restaurant for dinner and we all had a blast! The food was delicious=-their steaks are amazing as are the gnocchi, meatballs and pizzas. Their beer selection was great--we enjoyed a nice pumpkin ale. I love going here and will be back next year!

We visited during restaurant week. My husband got the restaurant week pencils and I ordered the salmon. The food was delicious. The portions were large. Nicole our server was fantastic. We’ll be visiting again next time we are in the city.

they make the best best meatballs in the city with great sauce
I was not crazy over the gnoochi
I was expecting a nice pasta dish in red sauce'
I think they were lightly fried with whole corn
good but not what I expected
noise level is very high

The food was simply delicious - beet salad was one of the best I’ve had and the mushroom/caramelized onion flatbread hit the spot! We really enjoyed our dinner

Gnocchi was very good as was the service. Loved the atmosphere. I wish they would have had a burlesque show that night. Instead they had a disco, music was good, very young crowd.

My friend and I went (again) to Franky Bradley’s on Friday and like always had the best time! We came for dinner and we had a delish burger, gnocchi and a flat bread. The service is always out of this world.
We love the kitsch of the place and the music is awesome! The drinks are amazing and reasonably priced.
If you are looking for a fun spot with tasty and reasonable drinks and food, this place is it! Again, huge shout out to our waitress and bartenders who were top notch! Can’t wait to go back!

We love coming here before the show! Loved the food, cocktails and the server. His suggestion of the salmon special was dead on! It is truly the most consistent. Meatball grinders are awesome and so is the drink Franky's punch!

At first glance, this appears to be a bar first and restaurant second. However, the menu and food was fantastic! The server was very attentive and the eclectic decor added to the experience. The artichoke dip was bonkers. Grilled salmon, chicken parm, meatballs, filet mignon skewers... all top-notch.

Everything about Franky Bradley's was awesome! We were pleasantly surprised by the price of the food and drinks: very reasonable for downtown Philadelphia. I had the filet skewer and my husband had the shrimp scampi and the food was excellent. We enjoyed the ambiance too! Our server, bartender, hostess were very friendly as were other customers. Frankly Bradley's was an overall wonderful experience!

I passed by this place earlier in the week and immediately dismissed it but I WAS WRONG! Everything about it was fabulous- the ambience, decor, food and drinks. I'm so glad we went! Much better prices than the "trendier" places around it and the staff was excellent!

We were a party of 10 and it was an early Saturday night. The service was perfect. We were on no hurry and the server allowed us plenty of space but was also there when we needed him. The food was very good. Perogies were delicious. Not a lot of ambiance but great for a large party. We made our own.

We had a group of 10 people and we had came from a performance at the Kimmel Center. Franky Bradley's advertised 15% off your entire bill with your theatre ticket or stub in the Kimmel program. They honored this advertisement for our group. The food was great and Nicole was a wonderful waitress. Dave who also helped our group was great to work with as well. I definitely would go back to this restaurant again.
