Recently had a very good meal here. Décor is your typical "steak-house" (i.e. dim lighting, dark woods, leather, etc.); very good, attentive service and excellent steaks. Only drawbacks are it is rather pricey and the service, while good, is a tad slow. That aside, I'll probably be back.

My fiancé recently took me here for my birthday dinner. The staff were very nice and attentive. We ordered the crab dip as an appetizer. It was wonderful. We both got filets, which were seasoned and cooked wonderfully. We were informed up front that the steaks are "generously" seasoned, and while they were a little more salty than what I'm... More

We visited Roanoke to attend a concert with my son and his wife. We chose Frankie Rowlands despite my concerns about previous reviews. We have dined at other upscale restaurants, (Ruth's Chris; Capital Grill, The Prime Rib) and although the service was excellent, we found the menu to be somewhat limited (Granted it is a steakhouse, but a few more...

I was really looking forward to an outstanding meal at Frankie Rowland's, and for the most part we got it. The service was attentive and quick. The waiter was very knowledgeable. Wine list was long with a good, fairly-priced selection. The issue that caused me to come down from 5 stars was the salt. In all fairness, our server told... More

This is definitely a fine dining restaurant. The steaks are huge and come perfectly prepared. The seafood is excellent and consistent. Sides are meant to share. You have got to try their signature adult beveridge - a pineapple martini!!

We wanted a special place to celebrate with our friends on the "sale of his business" and "retirement," so we chose Frankie Rowlands. It had been a while since we had gone there. We chose a Thursday night so that it would not be crowded. We made a reservation and they put us in a booth with chairs on each... More

Brought my husband here for his birthday, our first visit to Frankie Rowland's. We've frequented many a la carte steak houses. This is not worth the money. Usually when you tell the restaurant that it's a birthday, you don't have to tell them again when you arrive. I noted it on my reservation, a person saw the note when I... More
