“Good Night Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

I will always recommend Swanky Franks as a great eating place in Sheffield. It delivers great food and has a buzzing atmosphere. The menu has a great selection for both kids and grown ups. The staff can never do enough, they are always friendly and greet you with a friendly smile at the door. We will definitely be returning in the near future.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Great quality food, always served hot & well presented. The service is really excellent, always get a smile & this is a place where they make you feel like coming back over & over again. For a burger type restaurant, this is seriously classy food, cooked to perfection. Drinks prices are reasonable & the staff will always try to accommodate anyone turning up on a busy night, without a booking.

“Not a bad place - large portions!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We went here for a friends birthday, fully aware it was "fun" food. The portions were excellent and the service form the staff was friendly and jolly. Did take some time to get some drinks and some of the other customers were very rowdy and noisy! It's quite a small place, which was nice, and the prices for the size of the portions is good (the king prawns were MASSIVE!).
I did feel ill the next day, and I don't know if that is because I ate too much or not. Good place for families I would say, rather than a couple.

“Good meal, good portion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Really authentic interior, good friendly service, portions large and inventive menu. Slightly over priced and the chips let it down.

“dave, faye, john & sara”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Arrived greeted @ the door, told table would be ready in 5 mins, pre drinks in nice small bar area,escorted upstairs to our table and had ordered 4 different starters,wrapped king prawns, spare ribs, mushrooms in a delicious sauce & prawn cocktail all were sufficient and fantastic, we ordered main course 2 Rib eyed steaks cooked totally different for the individual taste and both superb, the other 2 had chicken breast with bacon & cheese topping & Fajittas, again superb, whilst all this excellant cooking was being enjoyed by all the waitress were excellent in not only their service but their ability to mix and entertain the guests individually and make a fantastic enjoyable atmosphere throughout the evening. To make the evening the owner Adriano popped in and although not there for long really put himself about to encourage the staff and speak to as many customers as possible. Cooking takes place in a clean kitchen which you can see on arrival. It's reasonably priced and friendly.
