Went for lunch and felt the service and food were very good. Table service was friendly and food was very enjoyable. The place was clean too. My only moan is the price of the food and drink. I feel this needs to be looked at in order to attract more customers. I don't agree with the majority of the negative... More

Won't go in for a big review this time. Service was average, not overly friendly. Food was average. Not hot, just warm. Drinks are ridiculously expensive. £4:25 for a small bottle of Magners Cider. Surrounding are pleasant. They have had little improvement over the years. There's a specials menu with one course for £9:95 which is not cheap for the... More

Went for breakfast one morning and ordered 'The Works' muffin for about a fiver, unlimited coffee. Food was very nice and filling, exactly as expected. Waitress was abruptly rude and snatched the card from out hand upon payment. Been here for breakfast previously however and had a delightful experience - won't be visiting this F&B's branch again.

The food was good and as expected (although is quite expensive). The service left a lot to be desired. The waitress seemed very friendly at first and keen to offer good service, however when our main arrived this changed and so did the service; no condiments were available, we asked for some water which never actually arrived ( I don't...

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
