Visited with my husband and must admit it was fabulous......a lot better than my local in Northern Ireland. My hubby loved his chicken and ribs. I had chicken with bbq sauce, bacon and cheese and it was superb. Would highly advise anyone to visit,

I used to love Frankie and Benny's and went there for a meal very often. However the past few visits I have noticed a huge difference! The staff have all changed and different staff are there at each visit. They don't appear to know what they are doing. I waited quite a long times for the drinks to arrive. When... More

Myself and my partner dined here at weekend at I have to say we both thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were clearly very busy but worked we'll together and our waitress had plenty of time to chat with us about our chrostmas, despite appearing to have many tables to tend to. Always fantastic whenever we go in!

Thought we would try this because we've had good and bad experiences in F&b. the service was great. Although busy, the lady communicated with us and make sure we were ok until she managed to catch up with us and working in the industry myself I understand how this can happen. Less can be said about the food though, it... More

Came here as a couple for a birthday meal. Ordered our drinks which came with our main meals 25 mins after arriving? I had the scampi which was cold inside and undercooked. My boyfriend had some sort of burger which was average but not worth the 11.95 price tag. Its a shame because the inside of this restaurant is wonderfully... More

We have visited this restaurant regularly for years, almost since it opened in fact and were always big fans. Changes in management and staffing are now letting it down. The service is slow, long wiaits for orders to be taken, our starters were cold on this occasion and the food nowhere near as good as it used to be. Our... More

A great place for a family meal, we were seated straight away and drinks were quick. Food was also prompt and that's good when you have 4 hungry boys to feed. The only slight criticism is the pizza was not cooked long enough for me. It was a thin crust so I expected some crispness but alas it was quite... More

I have always loved Frankie and Bennys. This particular restaurant left a lot to be desired... They let down the company reputation...o We waited half an hour for a table even though it was quiet. No one offered us menus or drinks while we waited. Once we were seated we seemed to have 2 different waitresses who didn't ask us... More

We like to come to Frankie and Bennys when we stay in Blackpool. What mystifies us is that we are always asked to wait in the bar area until a table is ready - however there are always tables free so why can't we sit straight down?? Having said that we have never had a poor meal, we didn't have... More
