“Standard frankie & bennys formula - but why change a good thing.”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Modern clean restaurant, food great, drinks a bit overpriced but thats the norm for this type of chain - you get exactly what you would expect.

“Nicest meal in a while :)”
Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

First time the hubby and myself ( +2 kids) had been out together in months!
Nice atmosphere, staff were friendly + manager was lovely to!
Daughter was entertained with there activity pack!
We had the 2 course lunch think it was £9.50ish.... Good selection on menu.
Mine was beautiful (skins & chicken pasta dish) daughter liked her spaghetti bog... And cleared the plate!!! Hubby had (garlic dough balls & veg burger) his burger was just a little to chargrilled for him. But give the manager her due she changed it no problem at all! Quote "as long as you leave here happy fed & watered"
All in all a good wee lunch!!!

“A Good Breakfast for £5.00”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Eaten here a few times, the food is good but service can be a little slow if you are in a hurry - but don't let that put you off.

Tip 1 -,if your in a hurry what I would suggest ordering you food when you are asked what you'd like to drink.

Tip 2 - if you like scrambled eggs on toast order one side of toast and two eggs off the side order menu and it saves you £1.50 off the £5.00 breakfast menu :-)

Tip 3 - spend 5 mins doing the online survey (details on your bill) and get a £5.00 money off your next visit voucher

Tip 4 - remember your free tea/coffee refills

“Kids love it. Food fresh and staff helpful”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

I have been here at least half a dozen times. A few times for big family meals. Kids love it. i was there Christmas Eve, birthdays etc. Service has been good too.

I can honestly say each each time the food has been good. How wrong can it go when it is pizza and burger type fayre!?

I am surprised there are not better reviews. Compared to the the sometimes manic one at Breahead, the Dumbarton one is much better. Also always found the staff very helpful. Especially friendly to kids and helping explain the different offers that are on.
