Good food selection for a brewhouse. Duck and steak were both great. Quiet enough to visit, relaxed atmosphere.

We use to go to Franklin pretty often. Usually for lunch and enjoyed the service and food. So, we tried it on a Saturday night for dinner. Well, we drove around and finally gave up. We went to an Applebee's in College Park. Sorry, I can't comment on the food at this time. Maybe another time.

Do not miss an opportunity to visit what is likely one of the best restaurants in Maryland. Every single time I have had the pleasure of visiting Franklin's, the food far exceeds expectations. My dining companion and I always start with the crab dip. Served with french bread, this onion, cheese, and crab dip inspired instant addiction. Then again, there's... More

We were looking for a place to eat after our visit to the Maryland Aviation Museum. We called ahead for a reservation for 15 people, ages 8 to 80. The hostess was very helpful in setting up a table on the upper level for our group next to the brewery. One of the Brew masters explained the beer process. We... More

There is a great store to get a sorts of awesome things that you can't find anywhere else. The food is delicious. The crab dip and burgers are my favorites.

Everything that I have had at Franklin's has been VERY good, hamburgers, love the Spaeztle, salads etc. Also it's a brewery and has a full bar. If the food and drink offerings aren't enough to sway you to dine there then you should go for the store that is attached to the restaurant, it has toys, lots of board games,... More

The food and service are more than adequate. They're always good but for a business lunch, as this was, it's often a little noisy. Usually, the food is worth it but for the office Christmas lunch it proved daunting.

My wife and I love this place for a great meal and delicious beer. The menu rotates seasonally, and is locally sourced when possible. The mussels are a must have appetizer for seafood lovers.

Went here based on the trip advisor reviews and was not disappointed. Inside and out is old style diner looking. I had the crab cakes and they were the best I have had. The homemade cocktail sauce is amazing on your French fries give it a shot. Great microbrewery selection to try out. You can get a flight of 4... More
