In a bit of a rush to get to the cinema for date night. Told this to our waitress Katie and she got our drinks order straight away and made sure our food arrived quickly. The food was good and the service was excellent tonight :)

The service was poor. Waitresses never really seemed keen on helping us or taking our order. Food was bought to us after a very long time of waiting despite it being available to serve on the shelf. They were more attentive when we asked for the bill. Never going back. Worst experience ever.

Great place to go if you are wanting to eat before a football game at Portman Road. Or a film at cineworld. Safe menu to choose from, no surprises! Reasonably priced also. If it's a game day it does get busy.

a very big complex however not much atmosphere staff are clingy and a bit too friendly I like space when I eat without someone coming over every 10 seconds - this will not increase your chance of a tip as I will get irritated food is nice but not fantastic

A really nice choice if you like Italian food, or a nice steak or a burger. It is not too expensive, and they also make a very decent breakfast. Very well located in Cardinal Park, Ipswich.

On a Saturday afternoon visit decided to give this chain a go as it has been a long time since last eating in a Frankie & Benny's. Big mistake. First impressions were good, nice décor, well laid out and several customers present (as opposed to some of the nearby competition which were virtually empty). Comfy booth seating. Friendly staff.

I was taken here for a celebration dinner. I have eaten here on many occasions and the quality never differs. Always great service with lovely staff and food that looks just like the menu. Long may this continue. Thanks to all the hard working staff that make it worthwhile.
