Pleasant experience with good food

We stopped here after heading to Ikea for the afternoon, and I'm glad we did. The restaurant has a... I guess a diner vibe going on, with bright walls (teal and green) and mostly booth-style seating.

OK....this is a combination deli, restaurant, and craft brewery. Oh, and really funky gift shop if you're looking for eccentric gifts & toys. Sounds weird, I know. But seriously, the food is really tasty and most of the portions are enormous. There are really good vegan options, too. Not to mention huge sandwiches for the carnivores. Anyhow, I wouldn't hesitate... More

I can't say enough great things about Franklins. The service was personable, prompt, and my iced tea was never empty. My husband enjoyed his beer (Hop Zen) brewed on site, he was only disappointed that he didn't notice that they offered a flight until after his full pint selection had arrived. Next time! We loved all of the meals, it... More

Very busy and welcoming pub - excellent for their own brewed beers and generous meals. I wouldn't mind coming back any time.

Great little family spot with a special treat next door for both the kids and the adults who are kids at heart. The food was good but not five star yet it is a spot I would eat at again. Right next door is an old fashion toy store which is connected to the restaurant by a door. The parking... More

I stayed at a house in West Hyattsville and my host recommended Franklin's as a great place to eat. I ate there twice and loved the food, the service and the beer. The onion rings were the highlight but everything else was great too. Excellent beer - and this is from an Aussie who loves his designer beers. There was... More

If you're looking for something unique to the area, this is it. Franklin's achieves the perfect balance of great beer, seasonal farm-to-table menu, and family atmosphere. The adjoining store has a great selection of toys, beer/wine, and novelties that always completes the experience for the kiddos.

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. I can't vouch for the quality since I don't drink beer, but I've heard good things about it. This is a great place for getting together... More

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
