We ordered the veggie white pizza to go and I was very disappointed. The crust was soggy and the pizza was almost tastelesss. I have had similar problems a couple of other times. This was it - I'll never order from there again.

Busy Saturday night during Shrimp Festival but the wait wasn't too bad. Waiter was a very busy man, but kept up. Appetizer and pizza were good. Price was fair. There was live music in the bar area.

I sat at the bar and Sandy gave me great service. Salad that came with dinner was so big and really good. Bread served with dinner so good I ate it all and I usually skip bread. Veal Piccata was good but a little heavy...More

Wow our group had a great time at Franco's in Orange Beach. We were seated in the lounge because it was busy but we actually enjoyed being near the live entertainment and the more casual atmosphere. Our group shared appetizers of two large orders of...More

We really were looking forward to some good Italian based on a previous visit a couple of years back. My wife had the seafood lasagna, but only found shrimp with no crab or scallops. I had the chicken parm, which was kind of dry with...More
