1st time here, service was slower than expected but well worth the wait. We shared the Vulcan mind meld sandwich, cornbread and pastrami, then had the seasonal strawberry rhubarb pie. DELISH, service was excellent. SEE Amber!

The food may not set records, but it is good quality reasonably priced with prompt service. Don't forget to stop in Franklin store for some amusing gifts, toys, and a nice wine selection

I did like this place overall, which is why I give it 4 stars. It's a typical brewpub attached to a unique toystore. The food was okay and the ambiance was good, albeit a bit loud. We sat upstairs, which I think was a good choice. Burger was a bit bland, but they more than made up for it with... More

We had supper at Franklins on Tuesday, 11 April. There’s public parking right next door and only costs 50 cents an hour. We arrived around 5pm and were seated immediately. We enjoyed the Rubber Chicken Red and Private IPA craft beers. Our Margarita pizza and Holy Frijoles black bean burger were both OK. We always enjoy taking a walk through... More

We went for beers after work and stayed all evening. There's a wide selection of well-crafted beers ranging from standard fare to fairly exotic varieties. Food is on the better end of pub fare and reasonably priced. The pub is split between two floors so it feels smaller and more intimate. There's a fun novelty store attached which is nice... More

Franklin's is one of the friendliest restaurants I have ever visited. The food is good. There are always people there. The General Store is packed with the weirdest/neatest gifts and cards. And the bar upstairs is a perfect meeting place for friends. Always a good experience.

This place is always evolving but always good. Everyone enjoys their job and it shows in the food presentation and service. Always a good selection and always something new to try. I am still waiting for pumpkin pie but it has been worth waiting. The general store attached to the restaraunt is amazing with a great carryout beer and wine... More

I was invited to lunch at Franklins yesterday for a work meeting and I was pleasantly surprised. The food was great and they made some alterations for me to fit my diet, the waiter was friendly and very accommodating and the atmosphere was fabulous. I only wish that I had had more time to visit the store, it looked like... More
