Well I have been hear before with varying experiences, - main problem was with service , but my recent visit last weekend was a vast improvement. The place was very busy but i must say the service was excellent, both at the table and the bar. Four of us had the fish of the day with chips and musy peas, you can tell we were not very exotic, - but this meal was absolutely beautiful. very good presentation and portions. We expected a bit of live music in the bar afetrwards but it was not there, just a bit of dreary background music that could be improved on. However there was great atmosphere in the place and overall i would recommend a visit

we have eaten and drank here on a number of occasions since it opened - must be nearly 10 years ago now- with mixed results.Parking is the big plus here and an attraction for us on a bad weather day.Food has improved very much of late and the ambiance is nice. A bit cold on the day we visited but weather outside was freezing and the lovely opened fire helped thaw us out. Christmas decors were nice and a good crowd was present for lunch. Food was good and at €9.70 for a turkey and ham lunch, and €4.35 for a lovey hot apple crumble and custard dessert, price and value was very good.
For a place that has great potential it is amazing that the basic problem here has not been recified since the place opened. And that is service. No fault on the staff we saw working here as they seemed to be rushed off their feet but we always feel that 1 or 2 extra staff would be most welcome here. Waiting 10 mins for a main course and 15 mins for a dessert is not acceptable on a time constrainted lunch break.
Nevertheless the food and value was very good and with a tweak to the service level, Johnny Franks couild become one of the best pub/ restraunts in Tralee.
