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

I come to Roanoke for a meeting once a year and have been regaled by the recommendations for this restaurant. I was looking forward to a wonderful steak. I actually ordered the prime rib medium. When it arrived it was totally rare to the point of being cool to my tongue. I did send it back to the kitchen and... More

Made a reservation for four on Valentines Day and reserved four 2.5lb lobsters (steamed) two weeks in advance. When we arrived, we were pleasantly greeted and seated in the main room. This room was exactly what one would expect from an upscale restaurant; waiters and waitresses all around, floral arrangements, china and silver-plate in abundance. The room was very romantic...
