So sad to report Franken Stube is closed permanently. A letter on the door says they closed Feb 26, 2017. We really loved this place and planned our North South Florida trips with a night in Emporia so we could enjoy fantastic German food.

I had an enjoyable meal here. The waitresses were friendly, almost fawning. The food tasted great. The portions were large and the entrees were a good value. I’m looking forward to my next visit.

The first thing out of my husband's mouth after he tasted the rouladen was, "OMG, it's just like Oma's!" He couldn't believe how much it was like his German grandmother's dish. We both had the rouladen with red cabbage and the warm potato salad. EXCELLENT!!!!...More

Just finished eating here....FABULOUS! Searched for nearby restaurants on way to Chesapeake and was able to stop in on the way home. Nestled in an area surrounded by fast food places, it is not far from 58. I had a schnitzel plate with red cabbage...More
