Frankie & Benny's
Frankie & Benny's brings together the best of classic American and Italian in both style and cuisine! The instantly recognisable red neon sign and warm inviting interior will ease you into the Frankie & Benny's experience before you can take your coat off. Buzzing with the sound of lively chatter, this restaurant attracts everybody from couples and parties of friends out for good times and great food, to families treating themselves to a night out. The choice is so massive that making a decision is a difficult task. To start, try the tiger prawn diavlo; five tail-on prawns pan fried with fresh garlic and green chilli and then tossed in a Neapolitan sauce were served with ciabatta bread (ÃÃ¢'¬Å5.95). The buffalo mozzarella and tomato salad is light, fresh and drizzled with a smooth pine nut and basil pesto oil (ÃÃ¢'¬Å3.95). Magnificent Pizza's start from just ÃÃ¢'¬Å5.95 and pastas from just ÃÃ¢'¬Å6.95 but there are also delicious burgers, grills, calzones, house steaks, salads, sandwiches and house specials with fish and vegetarian dishes aplenty. To finish why not share The Godfather, Frankie & Benny's new iconic dessert - a mountain of warm chocolate brownies, crunchy chocolate maltballs, red berries and cream. Topped with more cream, lashings of toffee and chocolate sauce, and finished with toffee crunch, a wickedly moreish pud. A great value lunch menu is available Monday - Friday from 11am until 5pm offering a selection of the most popular dishes from the main menu. One course ÃÃ¢'¬Å5.95, two courses, ÃÃ¢'¬Å7.25 and 3 courses just ÃÃ¢'¬Å8.45! The bar serves a wide variety of beers, wines, spirits and cocktails. Combined with the classic 50's music, a mix of American swing and beat, it provides a fun and friendly atmosphere for all to enjoy! Children are always welcome and well catered for with two menus to choose from starting from just ÃÃ¢'¬Å3.95 for a drink, main course, dessert and fun activity pack! In typical stateside fashion, service at Frankie & Benny's is second to none. Nothing is too much trouble for the obliging and friendly staff. So loosen your tie, relax, settle into your booth and relish the wonderful feeling of a very satisfied appetite.
