Great! Food is always fresh and innovative! Frans is delicious.
The food was out of this world! My husband and I were visiting from out of town and looking for something different from the usual southern food we’d been eating while on vacation. Fran’s did not disappoint. The food and service were both wonderful; hopefully someday we’ll be back!
Through someone's mistake, OpenTable was accepting all reservations, so the host had to scramble to seat us when we showed up to their tiny space with 6 people. Staff (servers and kitchen) were also overwhelmed by the sudden rush. The food was great when it eventually arrived, and everyone had a great time.
Service was sub-par.
Amazed by the great food. Every dish was and adventure in taste
I have always loved Fran’s so I’m hoping it was just an off night, but it has been a year since I’ve been. The food was just ok and it seems the menu has changed some since I was last there. The specials are typically amazing and the reason I got, but none jumped out at me. One person did get the special and it’s not something I would try again.
Food was excellent. Wifey had the lamb burger and I had the meatballs. Went with two apps, which were both excellent, the shrimp and the tots duo. Service was excellent. Todd, I think his name was, was very energetic and caring.
Casual, fun dinner with friends. Food was outstanding!
Fran and her team deliver every time at this, our neighborhood gem. Great food, fantastic service and a real commitment to quality and character. Easy access for those with limited mobility. Loved Fran's Roasted Chicken with root vegetables: comfort food on the healthy side in a v generous portion.
Feels like your little neighborhood bistro where you are welcome and known.
Always delicious and fresh. Fran’s hands on attention to detail is always apparent.
Great little spot for really good, creative, from scratch meals. Service was attentive, friendly and full of good recommendations. This place simply has a good vibe. Not the place to go for trendy cocktails or a fancy bar scene, but a great place to go if you are looking for great food at a reasonable price in a simple setting.
We had our daughter in town for the weekend and this was a great place to have a meal outside of downtown. The service was efficient and the food is very good.
Food was excellent, from the scallops, salmon and mussels to the fried chicken sandwich!
Loved the food and ambiance. Service was a bit slow and inconsistent.
Great place to go for the food and comfort. will become a regular.
This was the first time my wife and I eat at Fran's Filling Station. The whole experience was excellent and one of the better experiences we have had while living the last year in Charlotte. The Food and Ambiance were excellent, and the Service was good. We will definitely be coming back again.
Some of the best food we have had in a while coupled with great service. We had a wonderful time. Next time we will ask to sit in the back because we disnt know it was that large and we sat right by the door which was a little chilly. We will definitely go back!
First time visited Fran’s Filling Station and had a great experience both food and service. Look forward in coming back again!
Absolutely some of the best tasting food in Charlotte!
Fabulous food and service! We have never been disappointed.
Nothing special about the food, and we waited an exceptionally long time for the appetizer to arrive. It was tasty, but the "special" of braised beef and mac & cheese was awful. Our waitress seemed competent, but the kitchen was slow. This was a birthday dinner. A real disappointment.
Really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. We started with parmesan garlic frites and they were very good. I had the beef tenderloin skewers with mashed potatoes and Caesar salad. My wife had the garlic shrimp and the small Big salad. Our daughter had the California burger. All three meals were very, very good. Our server was new and made a couple of mistakes but he will get those corrected I am sure. We just moved close by so it will not e long before we return.
First time diners for Restaurant Week 2018. Although the food was great and our waitress Jamie was outstanding, the large party that sat behind us were super loud and drunk which put a damper on our experience. Its funny how not one person said anything to them (manager, server, not a soul). F bombs for days! The entire front half of the restaurant just looked on as these guys (and ladies) drank and cursed like they owned the place. Its such a small setting that we all should've turned around and joined them, community style. I would recommend this restaurant for dinner and looking forward to trying out the brunch.
Everything was great thank you we will recommend to local friends
We went for restaurant week and really enjoyed our meal. The bacon wrapped tater tots were our favorite menu item.
We visited for Queens Feast restaurant week. The food itself was very good. No complaints about it at all. However we were seated at an odd table in the corner that was too long for 2 people (we couldn’t converse easily - we were too far from each other ). Our waiter was not particularly attentive or personable. Honestly if the server had been better, it would have made up for the odd seating arrangement. But sadly, the food was really the only good thing about our visit to Fran’s
It was crazy busy due to restaurant week. Fran was present checking in on guests. Very personal, nice touch. Food was great and fair price.
Had a great meal, with a variety of options to choose from that aren’t everywhere else. The atmosphere was perfect for catching up. The cocktails weren’t great but definitely did the trick. I’d go back.
Attended restaurant week - first time there. Overall had a great time - food delivery took time for our entrees but the team took care a round of drinks - thank you - food was hot - my husband and I would defiantly come back again. Thank you for your hospitality
Fig and Brie flatbread was EXCELLENT! Chocolate was ver good.
For innovative and the freshest of ingredients this is your spot. It is always my first choice restaurant to meet for lunch. My husband and I love it for an early dinner with or without friends. Fran is so very creative and her menu reflects our love of great, simple food and a mighty fine Cosmo!
Our waiter was a not very welcoming (as I noticed other waiters/waitress’s way more accommodating) food was great.next time would definitely try more appetizers they were above amazing.
I was there with a small group for a birthday, during Restaurant Week and experienced good food, excellent cocktails, great service, and a pleasant and inviting atmosphere. I only give it a four because the food was good, and very creative, but not wonderful.
Food was average. Chocolate cake tasted like a Walmart birthday cake.
We went to Fran’s Filling Station for Restaurant Week and had great food and service! We’ll definitely be back. The only thing I would have changed is the timing of the courses- we received our entrees while still working on appetizers.
We got there when they opened so it was pretty quite while we dined. It started to get really busy as we left so I'm sure it was a bit more noisy after that. The food was great! I had the crab cakes for dinner and they were wonderful. Actually made with crab and not just filler. I was pretty full after eating just the two.
One of Charlotte’s best neighborhood restaurants! Food is always delicious and the service outstanding! Comfort food taken to next level! A local gem!!
