Dissapointing

Food was alright. For starter, stuffed potatoes were bland but dough balls were pretty good. Recieved the wrong main (chicken wraps when I ordered chicken melt) but server was new and apologised and changed it straight away. A little pricey but that's to be expected from a chain restaurant... read more

I regularly visit Frankie and Benny's for breakfast with 2-3 others, for a couple of reasons. 1. They still serve Irn Bru in glass bottles. 2. Their menu is very reasonably priced. 3. I always enjoy their food. I have sampled perhaps 4-5 items from their breakfast menu and have always been satisfied both in fullness of stomach and that... More

Ordered two starters loaded bacon skins and garlic mushrooms, arrived reasonably quick and was not to bad. I order spaghetti carbonara and my partner ordered pizza and salad and side of spicy onion rings. Again arrived reasonably quick however my spaghetti carbonara was a penne pasta dish with no sauce few bits of sad looking mushrooms and bacon completely tasteless.... More

Went for breakfast here around 9am. Friendly and welcoming staff. Great choices of breakfast from budget to luxury plus free coffee or tea refills. Fast service, tasty food and no quibbles about the refills. Very good would recommend.

Went late one afternoon. Restaurant was quite empty yet our food took forever to arrive. Without even complaining a member of staff come over noticing our delay. We were given nearly the whole amount off our bill. Very friendly people.

My husband and I decided to go out on a busy Saturday night, we hadn't booked a table so had to wait about 20 mins which was fair enough as we hasn't booked, but we had a drink at the bar so that was ok. When we did get our table, the waiter guy was very attentive and looked after... More

A decent choice of New York style Italian classics. The staff always seem a little rushed off their feet, but still manage to be attentive. Probably not the best food you'll ever eat, but a good stand-by for lunch. MLS

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 wait in the bar.... More

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
