My friend and I had the most fabulous weekend lunch here. The salad and creamed spinach were fantastic. The ambiance was just wonderful. The waiter and owner gave us great,personalized service and were so courteous. We will definitely be back!!!

Frankie & Johnnie's is an iconic steakhouse, but I fear it is a bit past its' prime. (pun intended) The food was overwhelmingly average. The steak was not cooked properly and had to go back twice! The sides were unimpressive. The service was friendly but...More
