If you have children with no table manners and have no intentions of them ever having any, this is ideal other than that forget it, ordered the rump steak, my plate included a very tough rump steak, two onion rings and chips, not very nice and will definitely not be returning. To top it all the service was very poor... More

We arrived to be told a 25 minute wait which I wouldn't of minded if there wasn't 2 clear set up tables and one that just needed cleaning. When we asked the gentleman seating people who was in fancy dress dressed as Dracula he said he couldn't seat us because there's a group of 6 waiting before us who wouldn't... More

Love eating at Franky and Benny's, great food great atmosphere. Definitely would recommend these restaurants to anybody. Ok maybe not 4 to 5 star but better than a Harvester.

It was ok but not worthy of 5 stars. Quite pricey especially on the drink side. The food was not particularly good but it was edible

Having a pre booked table for 15 for a birthday party at the Water's Edge next door which proved disgusting (never visit there save your money for McDonald's it's better), I called in to see if at the last minute they could help us with our predicament. Front of house Matthew advised he could fit 15 in and gave us... More

I always feel everything is rushed in here, if you prefer a more laid back slow pace then this is probably not the best of places. I don't know what it is about the place, just don't feel its a place to relax and enjoy a meal. Saying that, the food is always good

Popped in for some dinner after a film around (5:30pm). It was very busy but we got seated right away. Area where we were sitting was a little chilly - so sat with my coat on. I had a few kids that kept smacking the back of my chair as their parents had no control over them...they kept getting in... More

Had a table for 3 at frankie and bennys and the food was rubbish, straight from the freezer or microwave!! Staff are always friendly and the atmosphere is good, shame about the food. Having said that I do understand that this is a restaurant chain so probably shouldn't expect too much. The priced are expensive for what you get! Been... More
