We always enjoy eating here! Great food, friendly staff, reasonable prices. Nice atmosphere for a couples night or a group get together. Drinks and appetizers or a full meal -- always great!

Looking for a nice, quiet atmosphere and excellent food? They offer several of the 'basics', along with some specialty items. We have never been disappointed in a meal.

My wife and I enjoy eating at Franklin's Bistro. We go many times on Friday evening as they serve some of the best all you can eat fish. We have had private parties there and also just go when we want some good food.

Prompt friendly staff was at the table asking if we needed anything else before we were wanting refills. Welcoming atmosphere and good food at reasonable prices keep us coming back.

I take my grandkids out for supper once in a while and the kids menu is great. Just enough variety and good for the pickiest eater and the price is pocket friendly. The staff really takes care of you.

After a huge lunch in Yankton, we ate a light dinner here. I can't speak for the entrees, but the appetizers we had were delicious. I tried their much touted avocado egg rolls and loved them. My companion had the boneless wings and liked them. Wine was very reasonably priced too. The atmosphere and service were big selling points at... More

Franklins Bistro has everything you are hungry or thirsty for in one stop. Our family eats at Franklins at least once a month, sometimes once a week. The Asian Salmon w/button mushrooms, steak and spinach Gorgonzola pasta Alfredo, Chicken Fried Steak, burgers, and beef tips are favorites of ours, but the sandwiches, salads, hot beefs, soups, and steaks rock as...
