“Good food, excellent beer selection a fun place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We were at Franklin's on 10/26 which was our third visit there. We find it has a fun, lively atmosphere (which can get a bit loud). The food is good to very good, the staff has always been pleasant, the beer snobs in our gruop like the selection and it is a place we'd go back to.

“Great BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Food was good, and service was excellent.
Reasonably priced. Perfect for the end of a business trip beer. The location was convenient and easily accessible.

“Favorite place to eat when visiting my sister's family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

This is a really great, casual restaurant with excellent food. Since My sister's family moved to Hyattsville, MD years ago, a trip to Franklin's is a must during every visit. The food is delicious, the portions huge, the beer selection impressive, and the country store a BLAST! I've never had a bad experience here. And my nieces (ages 3 and 7) love it as well. If you're in town, you've got to give this place a try!

“Always great food, fun, good people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

I've been to this casual cafe, brewery, bar, and general store several times. I saw our state senator eating lunch at this popular, neighborhood place. The food is affordable, tasty and even somewhat healthful. The wait staff is friendly and doesn't push you to hurry, even when it's crowded. My husband and I once bought a bottle of wine in the gift shop and drank it at the table, which was allowed. Cheaper than buying 4 glasses.
