We had whizzed on by this place many times - a tree hid their sign. They have wonderful dinners (we didn't try their lunch menu). Very Italian - very attentive wait staff. Would view this as our lst choice for a dinner in Maggie Valley.

Our Best Western Hotel night manager told us this was the best restaurant in Maggie Valley and was he ever right. We arrived at 9:15 on a Wednesday night and were greeted like regular customers. I had the grilled salmon in a citrus sauce with a side of garlic broccoli. Fish grilled perfectly in citrus reduction sauce that was subtle... More

Disappointing to be kept waiting so long WITH a reservation, and on a Monday night. The indoor waiting area was packed, so we stood outside (no benches) the whole time with others and luckily had brought along jackets. The young hostess popped out twice to say, "We're working on your table," but then still left us continuing to wait. And... More

I got the chicken Piccata and it was lack-luster at best. I've had it before and it never looked or tasted like this.

Our server was a bit odd looking, which makes it maybe unfair to review a restaurant, but it really weighed on me. Service was a bit slow and almost great. Our food was pretty good, and the main entrees were large portions. The pizza is unique and had good flavor. In Maggie Valley, this is one of the better places... More

We have been to Frankie's on several occasions. They do not disappoint with excellent quality and authentic Italian food. It is a bit noisy when busy but do not let that dissuade you. We had the lasagna which was very good take on the traditional and the chicken Romana. The tomato broth with the chicken was excellent and the chicken... More

Loved the bruschetta but the rest of the food was just ok. We were told we would be waiting 35 minutes or so for two for dinner and the or so was more like an hour.

We really don't usually eat at Italian places because one thing the US has is too many mediocre Italian and Mexican places on every corner. And most Italian places have average (at best) sauce, which is what Italian food is all about. End rant. A friend of ours who lives in the area recommended this place and we reluctantly said... More
