It's good solid pub food and great beer. I always get the Greek salad which is carefully prepared and has fabulous tomatoes soaked in balsamic. Service is good but sometimes the noise level can be deafening. Today was a quiet day with great and efficient service. That's almost always the case. A local treasure in a food desert.

I'm a big burgers & wings guy... so I was excited when we found this place on TripAdvisor. All in all, the meal was pretty good... but I was a little let down. When I see a place ranked number 1 on TripAdvisor, my expectations naturally go up... sadly that led to a bit of a let down. My burger... More

If you're looking for great beer on a good rotation and always something new to try this is a great place to come. Plus the menu has nice selection and variety.

Franklins is an icon of hyattsville! Try any of their beers and you will not be sorry. Also the food is amazing and seasonal. There are things for meat eaters and veggie loves alike! Plus the general store attached is a great way to waste time before you are seated!

Good food, good brews. Not super fancy, but tasty. Can be a wait on weekend evenings. Quirky old-fashioned five and dime store connected to restaurant with everything from beer and wine to candy to kids toys to novelty items.

On a Sunday when you don't have to pay for parking, Franklin's is a dependable place to stop. Their burgers are great, and the snow peas I chose as a side where exceptional (they cooked them with garlic). The service was not very attentive, and not especially helpful. We were crowded into a upstairs section very close to a large... More

Very nice experience every time I've been there. The portions of there entrees are to much for me. When I order an entree I have to split the meal with my wife....really prefer not to. Casual attire and friendly staff. They are very accommodating with setting large groups. Just wish there was a lighter fare for some of the entrees... More

Stumbled into Franklins while traveling through Maryland and what a great find it is. Brewery, restaurant, and wild store of games, jokes, candy and cool art. We had sampler of five different beers and I discovered I love sour beers. Outstanding lamb sliders as app. Great juicy burgers too. My wife loved the pulled pork and the two sauces they... More

This is a refreshing oasis in a rather run-down area, but next to a train / Metro station, so convenient. Good dependable American food, very good service, and there's a country store with a nice selection of crafts, among other things. Fun place to visit, especially with (or maybe NOT with) a person who enjoys shopping for little odds and... More
