The food was nice, but too expensive. We had between 2 of us 1 10" pizza, 1 pasta dish, 1 cheesy chips to share, 1 diet coke and 2 pints of Stella for a whopping £37. I didn't realise but the Stella is £4.10 per pint! This is the crappiest part of Blackpool, Central Drive not Central London! The service... More

We have eaten here a lot as the food is right up our street! We have never had a bad meal here and we have tried various things on the menu - starters mains and deserts! The waitress and waiters are also very good and make your experience personal. Unfortunately, the management are awful, which is a shame. They take... More

Always been a fan of frankie and bennies, but tonight was bad! Two rib eyes ordered one med-rare, the other medium. One turns up med-well at best the other turns up cremated. The peppercorn sauce was missing and the side veg was just a laughable bows of peas with two florets of broccoli. First time ever for me to send... More

I'm surprised at the amount of negative review, I eat at Frankie and Bennys quite often and have never had a single complaint. The staff I find are brilliant, very friendly and welcoming and are very attentive. I've tried a lot from the menu and I leave very satisfied each time. The food is perfectly cooked and comes on time... More

Was kept waiting 45 mins for a table even though there were plenty of empty tables that weren't even used while we were in restaurant. Only 2 people cooking and 4 serving. Food took over 30 mins to come and not upto standard expected. Definitely a place to avoid in future. Would of been better going macdonalds next door

Visited 4 weeks ago and was disappointed with the food and poor service then , decided to give the place another go as it is convenient to eat there before the cinema...... Certainly won't be going back! The wrong starters came, then the main course appeared before the correct starter, needless to say the main courses got put under the... More

Visited on a Monday lunchtime. Waitress was not welcoming and quickly took order. Ordered the lunch time menu which is good value. Food quality appears to have gone down hill the calzone pizza was barely cooked with the inside of the calzone barely warm. Partner had the hot dog which had a very small amount of chips. My daughter refused... More

This is somewhere we have eaten for years as our kids love it but I have to say our most recent 3 or 4 visits have got worse and worse. Sloppy service by people who don't seem to care when before staff were always polite and helpful. Food quality has gone downhill. I know this is a chain so not... More
