We decided to go for dinner at last minute and were luck to get a table without a wait as the restaurant was packed. We split the chicken dumplings for an appetizer and my wife had a steak and I had fajitas. Everything was delicious and the service was great, We will definitely be back. We had two cocktails each...

Our first choice was closed, so we opted to try here for my husbands birthday. It is dark inside with a lot of televisions around and the bar is right in the middle of the room.

Franklin steakhouse is always crowded and that's because they serve consistently good food. If you're looking for a quiet, romantic spot, this is not it. It's loud and busy the way a pub should be. Drinks are good, wine selection limited. It's a great place for happy hour.

Staple restaurant for my family. Good burgers. Best sandwich is the Italian Steak. This place is sort of the Cheers of Nutley. Always run into friends.
