Greats food cooked to order

My husband is a vegetarian. There was nothing n the menu to go that need. They created a pasta dish for him. Food was excellent. Our server was Michelle and she was outstanding.

We found this place on Monday 3/23/2015. Our waiter that day (Michael-I think) was AWESOME!!!.. The food was very good and the 7 layer chocolate seduction cake was AMAZING. So, we went back the next day before we left Orange Beach (Mainly for the cake). We would go back here again if in the area.

Don't let the location or busy parking lot fool you. This is a nice place with lovely atmosphere that you may not expect in the strip mall location. There is outside seating but we were inside. Nice decor. Our server Mike was EXCELLENT! Timely, friendly and provided great service. We had the mozzarella sticks, 2 pizzas and a few glasses... More

Food and service very good. Very nice salad with their own dressing. Very nice quiet dining area. I had the speigetti and meat balls and it was very good. You can also purchase their Italian dressing. We always take a couple of pints home with us.

We stopped at Franco's our first night in Orange Beach. What a great way to start our eating experience. We got a pizza, salad and rolls. It all was very good and the ladies at the take out counter were so much fun. We were only there for a short time but they left us smiling, laughing and happy we... More

Very family friendly atmosphere with a great selection on the menu. Fairly priced. Great overall experience other than the person cashing out tickets short-changed us. This was corrected but not quickly. Good food and good service but be cautious if change due back from paying.

We've been going to Orange Beach and to Franco's for many years and always look forward to a good Italian meal. Things have changed, apparently. The large bowl of delicious salad has been reduced to individual bowls without enough dressing. Why has this changed? One entree was Chicken Parmesan which was unremarkable. The other was Chicken Marsala with a side... More

I ordered a take-out cheese pizza on thick crust for my last night in Orange Beach. It was only slightly better than Domino's, with very little cheese. I only went there because Mama Lottie's is closed on Sunday.
