Been talking about going back here for ages since our first visit and glad we finally got round to it. It was my husbands birthday and I was a bit worried after seeing some bad reviews but our experience was great. We were welcomed straight away and all the staff in the area immediately turned to smile at us and... More

Having asked around and read the reviews we decided to try Franks this evening for my Birthday Dinner. Myself, my wife and 2 daughters ordered the T Bone, the Rib-eye and surf and turf for my daughters. The service was quick if not a little sterile which I assume reflected in the complete lack of atmosphere in the restaurant. When... More

I have eaten here a few times now and have yet to be disappointed, the most recent visit was in mid-May 2014. The steaks are always good and fairly priced although this restaurant is pricier than many other restaurants in Northampton (and rightly so - you get what you pay for!) I love that Frank's uses locally sourced produce and... More

A party of 7 of us, went for a Sunday lunch, we all had different meals, everyone was very happy with their choice, the portions were really large, and well worth the amount charged, altogether a very happy experience.

Given the restaurant holds itself out to be a steak restaurant the quality of the steak was poor as was the cooking of it. I have purchased far better steaks from a supermarket and prepared them myself. The service is also poor the restaurant had 3 other tables in and we were in the restaurant for over 2 hours!

I've been to franks steak house a few times and the food is so much better than the service.... Although the staff are polite and friendly i often find them to be a little slow - I've had to wait for my order to be taken for too long and waited for drinks even longer.. I don't feel they go... More

Went for my son's birthday, service was excellent some dishes are over priced for their quality and size. Had the wild mussels for starters, the broth was very sour/bitter and could not be eaten. My son also had the mussels which made him sick later that night. Had surf and turf for main and the lobster was very tough and... More

We had a large group and had early meal 6pm. We all had a three course meal and food tasted lovely, we couldn't of faulted anything. The waitress was professional and we couldn't of asked for anymore! It was a birthday occasion so the value wasn't an issue. We were home for about an hour/2 hours and the birthday person... More
