“disappointing attitude and service”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

we traveled to Williamsport for the city's Mardi Gras festivities. Franco's Lounge was listed as a participating venue. We went in and every single table and seat at the bar had a sign saying reserved. We walked around and looked for a place to have a quick drink before the parade. We passed several employees and not one of them bothered to greet us or explain they were booked. It's unfortunate the downtown is trying to host events like Mardi Gras to draw business downtown and Franco's was not interested in doing business with out of town visitors.

“Awesome Dinner......”
Reviewed 6 February 2012

We live in Williamsport so we have eaten at Franco’s probably 50 times and each time is great. We are really thankful to have Franco’s here. They are a cool little restaurant right in downtown Williamsport.

We had an awesome meal at Franco’s this past Friday night.

Appetizers - We started off with the garlic “Shrooms” and the garlic cheese bread. The Shrooms are mushrooms sauteed with garlic and are very good as an appetizer. The bread is a garlic bread with melted cheese on top and was excellent with the marinara dipping sauce. The garlic shrooms are $5 and the garlic cheese bread is $5 – add the marinara sauce for an additional $1.

Drinks – Franco’s is one of the few places which serve Dr. Frank’s wines. My wife loves their wines so she had a couple glasses of their red Cab Franc. Franco’s is also the only place I have seen which serves raspberry beer on tap. It’s called Lambic Framboise and it is really good. It’s not cheap but it is worth it.

For the main course we had the seafood pizza for $14. This dish is really good. It comes with shrimp and scallops on top.

All in all it was another excellent dinner at Franco’s for well under than $100.

We highly recommend Franco's. We will be back!
