After an enjoyable afternoon spent in Ipswich town we decided to head down to Frankie and Benny's for a late afternoon meal. We got seated very quickly and our order was taken very promptly, not much long after our drinks had arrived then starters. The sour cream wasn't a favourable choice for the baked skins but bruschetta was quite nice.... More

Been to this location many times over the last few years and similar to other restaurants in the area it's slowly declining. The staff are as helpful as they can be but it seems they are always rushed off their feet because of the lack of staff. The food always comes out in good time to be fair even when... More

Arriving fifteen minutes outside the booked time, and over a busy Saturday lunch period, I then asked for two items from separate menu's, and because of other commitments, needed to be served quite quickly. Well, many thanks are due to both the seating team and the excellent table service for a very good experience, with the usual fare, very well... More

I ate here because i was hungry, with better establishments closed, the service was OK, with staff more interested generally in updating the phone status, the food was what i thought it would be, average to say the least, but i guess being a franchise i couldn't expect any better.

Wanted to take my son and grandson for a lunchtime treat, booked a table ahead but need not have done as we still had to stand and wait. tables waiting to be cleared, seemingly very short staffed. Ordered food and then realised how cold it was in there, not often I need to keep my jacket on! Have a slight... More

Hi Phylsgal I am sorry your expectations were not met on your recent visit. Could you provide me details of your date and time of visit, so I can investigate this? Our Naked burger is served as burger without a bun, and is cheaper than the standard burger price. If you wish to call the restaurant, I would be happy... More
