I can’t believe Frenchie has been open this long and it was my first visit. Solid 5 stars! Special shout out to the Frenchie Gnocchi. Pillowy soft on the inside, beautiful crisp on the outside. A lovely take!

Fun little night! It is mini balls and just 5 pins, so that was a little surprising. Still we had a great time! Food menu is limited, but the nachos were good. Bar is mostly beer, wine, and canned cocktails. They have a full bar but can’t make mixed drinks (ex. Margarita) so I think they probably just do basic drinks like vodka/soda. We had a great time!

Enjoyed the atmosphere and the staff was more than capable of handling any cocktail (no matter how obscure) that I requested. Definitely will be returning to see if there’s a cocktail they don’t know
