Nice food but a little more expensive than use to

Went in after 9 on a Monday night and it was very quiet with only a handful of dinners. The person who served us was excellent and very polite. I ordered a mix grill which cost £22 and my girlfriend chicken wrap which was about £13. Drinks were £4 a pint which I think is expensive. The food tasted... read more

I must admit I haven't really liked a Frankie and Benny's in the past, however this one changed my outlook completely. The staff we're very friendly and speedy but without being in your face, the food was very tasty and I will definitely return to this one in the future.

I visited here for something to eat before heading over to the Odeon. I ordered the Bruschetta and the Carbonara. The Bruschetta arrived and it had 3 pieces of tomato in a sea of red onion. Bruschetta is chopped tomatoes, garlic, red onion, basil and lemon juice. The tomato being the main topping! The main arrived and it looked delicious... More

Everything that can be said about our visit is summed up in that one word... The food was far from satisfying in both quality and quantity (so much so that we went elsewhere immediately after to quell our hunger) and massively overpriced for what you get. Both my better half and I ordered Rigatoni pasta dishes (and received Penne pasta... More

Restaurant was packed last night but still managed to get a table for three without booking in advance. Drinks were ordered swiftly and came not long after. I got the Louisiana hot wings for starter, I've had these before and are very nice. This time they came without the hot sauce on top and with a yoghurt dip instead of... More

When I enquired about the table of 8 I booked I was given a vacant expression advising they were not available... More

Went with the family at 12 noon before a film starting at 2:15pm. Restaurant was very quiet, we were only the third table with people at it. All started well, but as the restaurant filled everything ground to a halt. In short, 1hr 50mins for 2 courses, including 2 kids meals. Food was OK when it came. To be fair,... More

I was visiting my Son, family & friends to celebrate my Birthday, Before I headed south we went out for breakfast . Restaurant was quite due to the time, So I could relax & enjoy the company & food.. Service & food was really good, refills were brought over straight away. Will return next time I get to Blackpool...
