Love to Eat Here. Loooove to Shop Here

The food here is fresh and tasty. From the mussels to the burgers, I've always been satisfied by the time I leave. Parking is metered but very reasonably priced. Franklin's makes its own beer.

Our UMD student brought us to Franklin's. Great interior and vibe. Beer and appetizer's are amazing. Go for the onion rings and crab dip. Our lunch entrees were of variable quality but overall pretty good. Burger did not impress but sandwiches were very good. Attached to the restaurant is a general store which sells some pretty neat odds and ends... More

This restaurant is a great resource to the people of Hyattsville. The atmosphere is very comfortable, the servers are friendly, and the food is good. The one problem is that all of the items on the menu are heavy meals. They are basically high carb and meat home-style dishes -- the ones that make it hard to get up from... More

This lively local restaurant has a varied menu with great food, its own brewery, and a really fun attached store that could be browsed through for hours! Fun for couples, families and/or friends.

Franklins was one of the very first establishments to open in historic Hyattsville, MD. We used to patronize the sandwich bar when that's all there was at the back of their amazing variety store. We had not been back for a few years so imagine our delight to be served a 10 out of 10 lunch last week. The onion... More

The resturant has a store attached and they brew their own beer. The fish in beer batter was a bite over done. We had to send the coffee back, there was hair in it.

This place serves great food, but you'll enjoy the charm of the place even better. It's hidden in a way off Route 1, but if you walked out and went North you'll see that it is in a very nice artsy district that's blooming as we speak.

Good solid food, charming atmosphere and a general store attached makes Franklin's a very nice place. Everyone I was with liked their food, and the veggie options were plentiful. The waitstaff was a bit too tattooed for my taste, but it went along with the ambiance of the place. Parking is a bit difficult.

Franklin's is a nice place to stop for a bite to eat. Personal pizzas are pricy but good. The noodleless lasagna was also good. Nice seletion of drafts. Ample Parking.

After a long drive we looked for dinner near our College Park campground. Franklin's was perfect. The building outside and inside is just beautiful--so eclectic, cheery, and fun. We were seated immediately and received our drink order quickly. My husband and I each tried one of their in-house beers. Mine was a pretty good farmhouse, but my husband didn't care... More
