Decided to try the restaurant after it being highly recommended for many years. We were pleasantly greeted, our drink order taken and then surprisingly after a few minutes a gentleman came by to tell us that the owner had decided to close the kitchen for...More

Food smelled wonderful when we arrived. After being seated we waited over 10 minutes and asked twice for a waiter but no one even came to get our drink order much less food order. We decided to try it again a couple of nights later....More

We have been eating at Franco’s for over 20 years. It has had a couple of ups and downs, but generally has been an enjoyable dining experience. This year however, it was an unmitigated train wreck. As others who have commented, it was awful. We...More

Came recommended but will never go back. Portions where very small and pricey, quality was questionable. I could have went to OG and had a better meal for a lot less, very disappointed. Service was very lacking, looks like the owner was waiting on us...More

My wife and I hoped for a quality meal in a pleasant atmosphere, but we were quite disappointed. To begin with, a so-called "Non-smoking" area at the entrance had someone puffing merrily away. Since my wife suffers from POTS and asthma, this was not a...More

We visited Franco’s with a party of 10 and the service was fantastic! Unfortunately the food was not. It might be a low-end Olive Garden? It was a large place with lots of seating, but not a lot of patrons... maybe that should have been...More
