We had dinner with friends at Franklin's on a Saturday night and it was disappointing. The food was so-so - my chicken sandwich was overcooked and tough as leather, and my husband's fish and chips was doughy. But the worst was the noise level, which...More

Very nice, cozy atmosphere on the first floor. There is a second floor, but we did not choose to eat up there. The three of us each got somewhat different meals. I loved the beet salad w/sprouts, arugula, goat cheese, ricotta cheese & sliced almonds....More

This craft brewery-restaurant is in the old Hyattsville Hardware, built in the late 1800s and functioning until the 1970s (if I remember right). The building is a local icon that has been restored to keep its history intact while also offering functional reuse. Attached to...More

If it was just the service that was awful, well, I might put up with it. But here's thing: Franklin's has poor quality burgers, giant onion rings that completely obscure the onions, and easily the worst yesterday's grease smell in any restaurant I've ever been...More

Why does this place have such consistently awful service? The bartenders on the second floor are the most pretentious and discourteous I've literally ever encountered. My wife went there for a daycare event and was made to stand at the bar holding a toddler because...More

Drove down from Greenbelt, MD on a Saturday night after “March for Our Lives!” Foody wife, two fussy teens and a Hangry Dad found just what we were looking for! Pub favs and new twists! Great beer selection including flights of their own creations! Try...More

I've never been a huge fan of their food, but I have always liked their beer. There's always a good stout. The store is fun to shop in either while you're waiting or afterwards.

I had a burger and my wife had the ribs. Both were awesome, but it's a brewery, and the beer is what matters. I had a small flight to try four of their brews. All were unique. I wasn't big on the smokey sour one,...More

We arrived at 5:30 PM and were promptly seated. The building was once a hardware store and appliance center and still maintains much of its rustic charm. The once hardware store section of the building is now similar to a country general store. The bins...More

Since there was an estimated 30-minute wait, we walked around Franklin's store enjoying the novelty items until I received a text message that our table was ready. We started with the "must have" onion rings. I'm not sure what I love most about them: the...More

No. I think they take reservations for large groups. We've gone at lunch on a federal holiday Monday, at dinner both during the week and on the weekend, and we were seated soon every time. They have two floors... the... More
