“A very good dining experience”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Must start by saying that Trip Advisor and the management at "Frankie & Benny's", should sort the reviews out! It seems in general "Frankie & Benny's" receives poor reviews (rated 85) and the incorrectly named "Frankie & Bennies" receives good reviews (rated 39), even though it's the same place!!!
My wife and I visited one afternoon mid week, there were approximately a dozen other diners in. We were seated after a short wait. First impressions; very nicely laid out with mainly seating booths, very clean, easy listening music, altogether a nice and friendly atmosphere. I prefer this set up to their main competitor's TGI'Fridays.
We chose from their 2 courses for £12 menu, plenty of selection. The starters arrived after a short time, pulled pork in potato skins and crab bruschetta, both very nice and tasty. For the main dish we tried their "Ultimate Hot Dog", again, very tasty and filling, a nice choice as I do not usually bother with the usual plastic frankfurter type sausage.
All the staff we encountered were friendly and well presented, it is obvious that effort is made in their turn out. We also spoke to the very friendly and professional manager, Kirsty and complimented her on the restaurant, staff and meal.
Overall, a very good dining experience, we will definitely be returning in the near future.

“Good breakfast.”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

We decided to try this Frankie & Bennies for breakfast as we were in the area. Having previously eaten at the one in Meadowhall and been very disappointed, we were not sure what to expect.

It was very quiet, (just after 9 a.m.) and we were able to choose our own seats. The restaurant itself is really nice and the staff were very friendly, professional and efficient.
My husband had the bacon and egg muffins and I just had toast as I was not very hungry. We both had coffee to drink which was topped up free of charge.
The food was very good, unlike our previous experience at Meadowhall.

Everything was very clean, including the toilets, and the whole experience was very enjoyable and very good value for money.

“Not been to frankie & bennys since”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

We decided to try this one as we recieved bad service from our usual one, however, we should not have bothered. We were seated promtly and drinks were served straight away. Once we placed our order we didnt recieve service from the girl who took our order again. Our starters sat on the pass for a good five minutes before they were brought to us. Then for our main we ordered onion rings to come with it, the onion rings were up on the pass well before our mains and then our mains came up, they were left there for a good ten minutes, meanwhile team members were walking past and looking at them and then proceeding to polish cutlery. There were two ladies who looked like managers that were on floor at the time, it looked like they were about to have a meating, one of the women came over looked at our mains and walked off. I then saw her with the other woman sat down talking and eating some food. At this point i was infuriated. Our mains got served but the onion rings still sat on the pass and couldnt get anyones attention to get them. We ate up and we wanted to leave as soon as possible, this experience where i am paying someone to serve me and the managers sat in plain view eating instead of running shift was abismal. We havent returned since.
