The instantly recognisable red neon sign and warm inviting interior will ease you into the Frankie & Benny's experience before you can take your coat off! In typical stateside fashion, great service at Frankie & Benny's is second to none. Nothing is too much trouble for our obliging and friendly staff. So loosen your tie, relax, settle into your booth seat and relish the wonderful feeling of a very satisfied appetite!

Not a good start. But got much better

I don't understand why these chain restaurants understaff on a Saturday (or any day for that matter). We arrived after 3.00pm to a half full restaurant with a small baby. Being seated was reasonably rapid but they only had two, harassed looking waiting staff for what is quite a large restaurant... read more

the food is average, i liked the pasta and the burgers are good as well. The cocktails however are not of good quality. Had long island & mojitos. both were very watery and did not taste good.

Handy for the Point cinema this lively restaurant is a worthy part of a lovely chain. You know what you get and that is fine. I enjoyed it a lot. If you like food to be fun this is the one for you

The title says it all really, the food is pretty good for the most part though I preferred the old menu as the changes are not my personal preference. The staff have always been polite and the general service is pretty good though now that the blue smokehouse has opened they will be getting some serious competition as the food... More

I went there with some friends for dinner. This place is average in every possible way so I will keep this review short. Food is ok. I got calzone with lots of different meats inside. It would probably offend every Italian (I mean calling it calzone) but it was surprisingly tasty. Service was ok, although I don't understand why they... More

Had booked a table and went straight through. Waiter was brilliant. Food was fab. The thing that let it down was that one of our group found a hair in the last mouthful of his meal. When speaking to the assistant manager (we just wanted an applogy) he accused us of planting the hair in the meal. Will definitely not... More
