The cheddar burger is always very good; the onion rings as a side in place of French fries is great for a tad less carbs. The onion rings really are terrific. The side sauce served with them is good, as is plane ole ketchup!! Highly recommend the beef burger. My guest loved her wrap as well.

Took the family for a steak dinner. Ambiance is a little loud and seating was pretty open, so not a place for a couple looking for a quiet private dinner. The service was good, the food was okay. Not of the caliber I was expecting at even say a Outback or Longhorn. Maybe my expectations were too high, but calling... More

We went for Mother's day and the service was excellent. Michelle was our waiter. She was diligent and on top of things. She was very busy but handled everything very well. Our drinks were replenished before we even knew we wanted them. The food was excellent. We had the prime rib special, strip steak, the cowboy steak and a shrimp... More

Definitely check out the Franklin Steakhouse for watching sports. Many, many televisions around the bar. Can be noisy during Happy Hour but otherwise nice atmosphere. This visit I started with Chicken Noodle soup; the soup of the day. Delicious soup with plenty of chicken. For the entree I figured since they are a steakhouse I would try the file mignon.... More

I have a local business and, at different times I have seen Family, Friend , and Business traffic separate but together in a service friendly environment. There is a full service bar. There are food and drink specials for every taste excellently prepared. There are TV's throughout but not all channeled to sports. I believe there are private party accommodation's... More

We ended up at Franklin Steakhouse in Fairfield because the restaurant we were originally headed for had an hour wait so we pulled in here by chance and they only had a 20 minute wait so we decided to try it. Luck was on our side because we ended up having a great meal! We were a party of four... More

As I said above, decent prices and good food. The place is usually packed and on a Friday night (possibly saturday too?) the bar gets packed. I guess it's also sort of a lounge type place after hours as they have a dj. The place does get pretty loud, but not exceedingly so. I'd check this place out if you're... More

Our steak sandwiches were delicious. Trio appetizer - coconut shrimp, calamari and popcorn shrimp lights, so tasty. Try it!

We have been here a few times. Sometimes just by ourselves and other times with other families. Always have a good meal, and not just me, but everyone's meal is good. A little better than bar food. Definitely not a steakhouse. Outstanding prices. The place is always packed. Wait is usually 15 min - 1 hour. Service is good.
