The place was very dark inside, the service was slow and didn't seem to be enough staff on to cope with all the tables.
Food was nice, but nothing special.

It was better than average and the score mainly reflects the fact that our 3 children had a decent sized meals and unlimited soft drinks, the latter of which can make a meal costly if you have two or three rounds of soft drinks. Alcoholic drinks are reasonably expensive though but it depends how much you are used to paying as to whether you agree or not. The music was played a little bit too loud at times so they should try and control that a bit better.

We visited Frankie & Bennys in Meadowhall during the very busy Christmas period. The wait for a table was only 15 minutes and the service was swift but the food very disappointing.

The pizzas were very soggy to the point where they were inedible - my wife ate less than half and I had a BBQ chicken which had so much BBQ sauce it was over-powering but I'm guessing this was to hide the fact the chicken was hard and over-cooked.

When the waiter asked if everything was ok we explained the chicken and pizza were very poor and his answer was simply - "ok, would you like a dessert now then" - he was more concerned about us spending more money than the quality of our meal

Overall a very disappointing meal and at nearly £60 for 2 adult and 2 child main courses there are much better value restaurants.

I doubt we will ever be going to a Frankie and Bennys again!!

Living in Chesterfield we use the F & B there, which I have to say is excellent. We assumed that this venue would be on the same level being a 'chain organisation'. - Well no it's certainly not! After being seated our drinks order was taken, we must have been left with the menus for 20mins before the drinks arrived and our order taken. Myself and partner had the calamari, which I think had been left for dead in the fryer. Overcooked and greasy is a good description. The main courses were of the same theme overcooked, greasy and bland. I also think that the serving staff were more interested in discussing their social lives around the bar area, than customer care. I recommend that this place is avoided unless you want an overpriced stomach ache!
