Franklins is a great place for family's or just with friends. The food is wonderful and the onions are to die for. Beer battered dipped the old fashion made with a sprinkle of Old Bay on top.

I was in the area and found Franklins on trip advisor. They brew their own beer and the food was very good. They also have a very eclectic gift shop you can visit. Wonderful atmosphere. I highly recommend Franklins.

The beer is brewed on scene and the food is sourced locally where possible. Great staff and atmosphere make this a great spot for many occasions. The general store attached to the restaurant is great for buying alcohol and knick-knacks.

I really enjoyed my dinner and visit to this very different restaurant. Yes, the food was delish but the interesting "old time store" located beside it was what sealed the deal. I appreciate businesses like this, and would encourage anyone to try it.

Franklin's started the Hyattsville dining revolution. With craft beer and a funky store attached, it's a great place for casual dining. I remember when the building was a hardware. The food is quite good, with a wide variety.

Food was average; the onion rings were huge but other than the novelty size, there wasn't much else to it. I also had the vegetarian chili, then the fish and chips and like other reviews noted, the food really was "meh". Atmosphere was fun but...More

I used to love this place. It was close to work and it was also useful to have a large party business luncheon or celebration there. While their wait staff is good, and their on-site store is a hoot to explore, their cuisine has taken...More
