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...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...More

A classic local joint, Franklin's presents a wide-ranging menu in delightfully kitschy surroundings, served by very friendly staff. Serious effort has been put into creating the sense of a fun atmosphere with local touches, with items standout (the hand chair in the waiting area) and...More

If you're looking for a local brewery with a combination of family dining and/or relaxed bar scene look no further. Franklins on tap selection is wide and balanced offering something for everyone. The atmosphere is lively without being overwhelming.

We came with a very, very large party celebrating a student's music recital and UMD. Our host had made a reservation so they had several long tables waiting for us upstairs. Of course, we made it harder by sliding the tables together and mixing up...More
