Brought my husband here for his birthday, our first visit to Frankie Rowland's. We've frequented many a la carte steak houses. This is not worth the money. Usually when you tell the restaurant that it's a birthday, you don't have to tell them again when you arrive. I noted it on my reservation, a person saw the note when I... More

I come to Roanoke for a meeting once a year and have been regaled by the recommendations for this restaurant. I was looking forward to a wonderful steak. I actually ordered the prime rib medium. When it arrived it was totally rare to the point of being cool to my tongue. I did send it back to the kitchen and... More

Made a reservation for four on Valentines Day and reserved four 2.5lb lobsters (steamed) two weeks in advance. When we arrived, we were pleasantly greeted and seated in the main room. This room was exactly what one would expect from an upscale restaurant; waiters and waitresses all around, floral arrangements, china and silver-plate in abundance. The room was very romantic...

I have resisted this restaurant for many years but finally gave in for a special occasion. The filet and lobster was a very good plate although we had to send the steak back as it was rare instead of medium. It took quite a while before it was returned to the table. The ribeye was the big disappointment. Tough with... More

I went here with a friend of mine and the place is very romantic! It was candlelit and the staff was very thorough with the menu and specials. I just think the food was a bit overpriced for the portion you got. The sides cost extra money. The food was ok! The martinis on the other hand were absolutely amazing!!!... More

This Roanoke landmark offers a rare treasure - best steak in the state. The service is only matched by the wonderful juicy and flavorful steaks and sides. There is an extensive wine list to match it all up for a memorable and delightful dinner!

I enjoy going here for a good martini and steak. Great upscale atmosphere that is welcoming and comfortable. It's fun to eat at the bar when you are alone.

We recently enjoyed a wonderful steak dinner at Frankie Rowland's Steakhouse. We ate at the bar as we were passing through the area and had read the good reviews. Our steak was cooked to perfection and the bartender and local people we met there, all added to our most positive dining experience. It definitely feels like this is a place... More

If you like steaks, you'll like this place. Seating is a somewhat close and the place on the noisy side. Food and selection is above average, but be prepared to spend about $70 or more per person
