There is a great store to get a sorts of awesome things that you can't find anywhere else. The food is delicious. The crab dip and burgers are my favorites.

Everything that I have had at Franklin's has been VERY good, hamburgers, love the Spaeztle, salads etc. Also it's a brewery and has a full bar. If the food and drink offerings aren't enough to sway you to dine there then you should go for the store that is attached to the restaurant, it has toys, lots of board games,... More

The food and service are more than adequate. They're always good but for a business lunch, as this was, it's often a little noisy. Usually, the food is worth it but for the office Christmas lunch it proved daunting.

My wife and I love this place for a great meal and delicious beer. The menu rotates seasonally, and is locally sourced when possible. The mussels are a must have appetizer for seafood lovers.

Went here based on the trip advisor reviews and was not disappointed. Inside and out is old style diner looking. I had the crab cakes and they were the best I have had. The homemade cocktail sauce is amazing on your French fries give it a shot. Great microbrewery selection to try out. You can get a flight of 4... More

A spontaneous road trip led us here... A fantastic Oktoberfest find! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable; food and brews outstanding! Going down to the general store next... Perfect rainy afternoon!

the ales and beers are terrific, of which there is an extensive selection. The Stonehenge brown ale is tasty. The food is fresh and delicious. Onion rings are my favorite.

Although Franklin's Restaurant is only a hop, skip and a jump from us, We had been living in this area for 25 years before I first experienced this fine establishment. My family decided to treat me for Father's Day last year (2015) and chose Franklin's. ( I think everyone else had already tried it before). The atmosphere is great. They... More

I can walk to Franklins from my house, but I've dined at this restaurant for over 10 years. Their twisted turtle pale ale is amazing, and pairs perfectly with the "Thai pie" entree. There's a bar upstairs with at least six tvs for football and basketball season, and they also have an attached general store with awesome gifts and a... More
