    The food and drinks were amazing. So were all of the staff. We got the duck con fit and oysters Rockefeller for appetizers. For entrees we got the salmon and Chilean sea bass- incredible! Mushrooms for the side and creme brûlée for desert. I recommend trying the pineapple martini!

    Looking for a fabulous meal, great service, and special event experience when going out to dinner? Frankie Rowlands is that place. Whether you are celebrating or just want a really lovely out to dinner, I cannot recommend this restaurant more highly. Never had a bad meal, poor service,or disappointing experience. This is firs-rate, top-notch dining.

    We were making an interstate drive along Rt 81 and in the Roanoke area looking for restaurants a short distance from the highway. We were overdue for going out to eat and had not had a good steak in some time- so Frankie Rowlands looked like a good option. Best aspects were the filet mignon- great taste & cooked perfectly and accompanied by a lobster tail, and the two sides of Brussels and mushrooms. Our other meal, a ribeye was disappointing because of the amount of gristle and undercooked state even after the 2nd try. Our food also took quite a while to come out. Having to get back on the road we ordered coffee which was served lukewarm. Staff apologized for with all and did the best they could to make right. In the end - for a tab of nearly $300 for 2 meals, 2 sides and 2 drinks we expected better.

    Disappointed that no mention was made by server or manager that this was a birthday celebration which I had included on my notes in the open table reservations. Not expecting any freebies but a perhaps a “happy birthday” welcome statement?

    We had a fabulous dinner at Frankie Rowlands, Salem. The crab dip was great...not too rich, lots of lump crab, nice and light. The salads were delicious, very large. Our steaks were done to perfection! The Creme Brule was probably the best I have had. It is so nice to have a restaurant of this caliber in Salem. Oh, the decor is very nice, clubby and comfortable. All the staff was warm and friendly. Frankie Rowlands will be a regular for us!

    Frankie Rowlands is the best fine dining restaurant in the Roanoke area. Steak was initially a little under cooked but they fixed it moved it from rare to medium rare and was delicious. The baked cheese appetizer was fantastic and service was terrific. It is pricey but well worth it in my opinion.

    Wonderful 1st time visit. Our service and food was outstanding. A little mix up with delivering the wrong food to our table but it was all handled professionally and didn’t impact our time for waiting for dinner at all. Loved the filet, fresh green salad and baked potato. They were very accommodating to my husband and me splitting the steak and potato. Will definitely return!

Nikki provided us with great menu recommendations and the pacing throughout the meal was right on to allow our drinks, appetizers, salads, entrées and dessert to be all delivered fresh and presented so well. Another great meal by the team! We can’t wait to return!

    Probably the best steak I've had in years. The dining area leaves a little to be desired as far as decor. They need to add some art or color to the walls. But the place was fairly quiet (when we were there) and the food was all delicious. I have a hard time paying that much for food, but will do it on special occasions. It happened to be our 10-year anniversary so they brought us a special dessert with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate, which made the meal even more special.

    Overall outstanding. Alec, bar tender and other server (I don't recall her name) were friendly and professional and strong intent to please. We thank all! The only comment for improvement is that it took quite a long time to be served dinner. Could have certainly been staffing or other reasons.

    We arrived table not ready so we had a drink at the bar, Excellent service and drink was perfect. We were seated at a table that should only be used for 1 person we made our reservation 2 weeks ago that should not have happened. The table next to us were 3 men nice but loud but we were seated almost right next to them. Our server was excellent but the food was very slow coming out, but the server continue to check on us a letting us know she was sorry for the delay. Food was good but by the time it arrived we were ready to go home. Not the best experenice we have had a Frankie Rowlands but we will try again.

    Wow! INCREDIBLE filet meal! We enjoyed a wonderful dinner when my parents came to town to visit. Ordered 3 filet meals and one of their seafood specials. Absolutely delicious meal, they provided us with a gluten free menu for my celiac mother, wonderful cocktails and our server was perfect. Great atmosphere, wonderful drinks and food- overall a 10/10 experience!!!
