Well I chose from the many restaurants along the waterfront Norwich Frankie and bennies as I've eaten at Frankie and bennies before in other areas. I was met in the usual way at the entrance once some one noticed me standing there. I have seen other Frankie & bennies full to the brim and had to... read more

Visited yesterday with my 4 year old daughter a friend and her three teenagers; we went for the lunch menu which appeared to be good value at £9.45 for 2 courses. The service was slow, they weren't busy so no excuse! The starters were ok nothing special not particularly hot when delivered. I had the Philly burger, it was tasteless... More

I went to Frankie and Bennies for the first time yesterday, we had actually gone to riverside for the all you can eat Chinese opposite but as it was bank holiday they saw fit to put the price up by £6 per head (alot when it is normally £6.99!), but I saw F&B had a lunch time menu for £6.95...

We visited Frankie and Benny's and ordered the Philly sandwich and a steak. The Philly sandwich had 4or 5 small pieces of steak in it, I can't imagine this being served in the USA there would be a riot and the steak dish ordered was not tender but on the tough side. Service was good and pleasant but it highlighted... More

I've been going to Frankie and Benny's for probably about 10 years, and have literally never been disappointed with a meal. I go every few months (often after going to the cinema, when it's busy at weekends) and they have always tried to give the best service possible. They are very good with kids and always gave me an activity... More

Fairly quiet when we entered. We were greeted and seated quickly and orders were taken promptly. We ordered Calzone and although it was nice we were expecting it to contain cheese but couldn't detect any, Also the BBQ sauce was quite overpowering. Other than that the food, service and atmoshere was good and I would recommend the restaurant to friends... More

We had a table reserved for a birthday and when we were seated our table had no lighting and a heater blaring full blast above us. We got our menus and since my last visit the vegetarian options have changed.....£10.25 for pasta with peas and broccoli..... i can barely cook and can make more exciting food than that. Doesn't come... More

After all the rave reviews, I was expecting top-notch service, great food and great value. Clearly people's expectations vary wildly, but when our group of four arrived there was no one to greet and seat us, and the queue built up in no time. Eventually, a pleasant man appeared and showed us to a table, but unfortunately it hadn't been... More

My family and I come here as often as we can because its never done us wrong! We usually come for breakfast because they're so good and cheap. Most recently we came for our son's first birthday. He had the 3 course kids menu and we had 3 courses off the set lunch menu. for 4 people it was only... More
