Nice waitress, apps were really good (poerogiea, meatballs, spinach artichoke dip). I had beet salad - quite good, son and his girlfriend had burgers that they said were good as were the fries. My husband had chicken parm and spaghetti - very good but a little too garlicky. Good deal - 2 of the apps were $5 each and my son’s girlfriend and I each had $5 cucumber mule drink which was good.

In town for a conference and this was a fun, low key dinner and social spot near our hotel.

We went here for pre-theater dinner during restaurant week. The restaurant week choices were awesome but too much food for us that night so we ordered off the regular menu. Awesome food and great service and atmosphere. We will definitely be back. Terrific large horseshoe shaped bar was cool.

We were told it was just a dark bar, but since it was restaurant week, we thought we'd give it a try. We all enjoyed our food. Some of the best scallops I've had in a long time.

Franky Bradley's was a very pleasant surprise! The gnocchi was outstanding, Franky's Fries were great, and the drink choices were wonderful. My only complaint is that the beers we ordered seemed flat.

Good food and beer options, this place is loud, good to hang with a group of friends, not so good for conversation.

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. I had gnocchi and he had salmon. Both were delish. We're thinking this might be a spot to return to the next time we're in the neighborhood.

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!

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
