Book your next event with us
Food was so great !!! Excellent service
Can’t wait to come back
Great specials - deviled eggs and swordfish!
Super Phil, our waiter, is one of the best in the city!
Owner Fran was gracious and hospitable as always! JV
This is always my 'go to' first choice of restaurants in Dilworth. Fran's hands on approach to food cooking and prep is excellent. Even tho we am now living in South CLT, we will always return to Fran's as one of our favorites.
Mazing amazing food!!
Music could be a bit louder/livelier
Wonderful dining experience. Great food. Great team.
Great place! Loved the food, the server was phenomenal. Owner came by, and was great too!
Friends is one of our go-to date night spots. And it never disappoints. Food is really good and service is always very well prepared and committed.
The Asian calamari was tasty. The lamb burger had very little taste. Disappointed. The peach cobbler was very good. Charge me for ice cubes in my gin & tonic. That is a show stopper. Won't be back after that.
It was wonderful. We have visited Fran’s a lot and the food, service and atmosphere were all very good, as usual
Great food and nice casual atmosphere. Service is excellent.
Food was excellent, as was the service! Recommend highly and we will definitely be back!
Visited Fran's during restaurant week. The food was great. Service was good. Love the atmosphere.
I would go back again.
The food was so good last Saturday, I went back and got the same meal again! Latin wedge salad, salmon, and butterscotch Bodino. Perfect again!
Love the food, servers and atmosphere! We come every restaurant week because it's a great value! We also come when it's not restaurant week as well because tje food is great. I've never had a bad meal there and it is very refreshing to always see an owner there. Fran is kind, generous and friendly. She found out that the table next to us had someone sitting there who was having a birthday and organized a complimentary glass of prosecco for the person. Love this place!
Always a great food experience! Fran is the "hostess w/the MOSTEST"!!!
Some friends and I made reservations for my birthday dinner. Excellent choice!!! The eclectic food was superb & the staff was eager to please. The best calamari I ever had!!!! That fig flat bread was everything!!!!
Check them out.. You won't be disappointed!!!
There was a special menu for Queen’s feast, but one of the best dinners I have had in a long time. Everyone at the table loved their meal. Curried muscles were great. Salads were terrific (but they always are at Fran’s). The salmon was perfectly cooked & her special meatballs were great. And the desserts...I had the Italian butterscotch Bodino and the three others I dined with her all had coconut cake. The desserts were perfection. Thanks Fran, as always.
Celebrating a birthday. Small, cozy & great food.
Great server, loved the food and would go back.
Everyone tried something different we had the chicken Milanese, meatballs, the trout and the tuna special. It all was delicious. We sat outside on her beautiful patio. Fran came by and checked on us. It was a perfect evening!
Fun very casual. Good for families.
This place is great. First time trying it and there’s no doubt I’ll be back. Loved the food and the service was phenomenal
Excellent restaurant with outstanding menu selections and specials for the evening. Food taste, presentation and ingredients superb. Was extremely busy the night of our dinner with parties of six and eight obviously enjoying the ambiance and service. Fresh roses at each table added a special touch. Never a disappointment. Will return soon.
Taking an old frail lady out to lunch.
Poor sanitation rating
Waiter and service was poor
Everything was delicious as always. Never disappoints. One of my favorite places. Great tater tots, Salmon, pasta al forno, shrimp and grits, coconut cake, butterschotch budino. All great! And great service.
Hidden gem in Charlotte. Great food and casual laid back dining.
Food was amazing!! Service and drinks were not very good at all... Fran was personable and great!
The staff was very helpful and the food was delicious.
Empty on a Friday night. Our first time there. We were anxious to try based upon friends’ recos, but it did not live up to expectations. Party of 8...three bad mixed drinks. No wine list given to us, just what the waiter recommended, so no idea what we were paying by the glass. One choice of red and one choice of white by the glass. I would have preferred to make my own decision. The tater tot appetizer was delicious, but $11 for the duo.(seriously?..:silly) ..we had to order a second so that there was enough to share for the table. The Brussels sprouts were wry small in portion as well (like an individual side dish than an appetizer ) and not at all crispy. The mussels were very good. Entree portions were large, but nothing spectacular. Our bill for three of us was $200 for a casual pre-concert dinner! We won’t go back.
I don't normally write reviews, but Fran's Filling Station was outstanding!
Took my wife out from Raleigh for Mother's Day weekend getaway. Food was delicious and affordable for Mother's Day lunch date. Wish I had room for the brunch great selections.
I absolutely recommend!!!
As always great food. Bacon wrapped scallops appetizer was wonderful.
Specials always great
Great night - fantastic food (original roast chicken) and other goodies, tots and calamari were faves too. Thank you!
Always Great... Thank you Fran and staff!
Food is fantastic. Service was decent but not stellar. We sat outside as it was a beautiful day and that may be why our server did not come frequently (he also had no sense of humor or personality - maybe just having a bad day). The food, however will keep me coming back. Best veggie burger I've ever had.
I found this restaurant on the Open Table app and it did not disappoint. The food was wonderful and plenteous without breaking the back. It's a nice setting with white table clothes without high prices. The owner greeted us as we came in and I have already recommended Fran's to several friends!
When Fran herself meets you at the door you know good things are in store. Food is prepared from fresh ingredients with an eye to simple presentation, so that the flavors all stand out.
Always a delightful meal with varying menu, and good service. Well prepared that just feels 'fresh' and made just for you.
Worst pasta I have ever had. The sauce was sweet. They don't have a clue.
Always enjoy Fran’s!!
