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

this was my second time at Franklin's and I know I don't get up there as much as I would like! The ambience is fun times 10. While you wait for a table, go check out the General Store that is right next door. You don't even need to leave the restaurant. Lots of neat, eclectic gifts and foodstuffs. A... More

We have been going to Franklyn's for many years, as many of their beers continue to be interesting and satisfying --and their wine choices, while not particularly interesting, are usually well priced. The menu, changing slightly from time to time, spans from barbecue pork to pizzas to an Asian-themed salad. Perhaps because of the very broad scope of this menu,... More

Franklin's is a glorious find! The food and atmosphere are great but the reason to go is for the beer. The brewmaster is always coming up with new and delicious brews so we go at least once a week. Great place for families, date night, hanging out with friends, or a luncheon business meeting. Be sure to always ask if... More
