Franks at the Mill

After hearing rave reviews from friends about "Franks" in Palmetto my wife and I went last week.
I ordered the Ribeye and shrimp in crab/cream sauce. $26
My wife ordered stuffed shells(cheese). I think $15.00 .
My ribeye was ok. Cooked as ordered and flavor was nothing to brag or complain about. Shrimp /crab cream sauce was good.
What I wasnt happy about was the steak was 1/2 inch thick at best. For $26 I expected a Thick steak.
My wife got 3 cheese stuffed shells for $15.Kinda pricey!
The server was not great.
When we got home we were both not feeling well.
Frank just bought the old " Mill Around" on 54.
I hope the food/service is better there.
Not that it matters cause we wont be going!

I found the service to be just BAD!!! The food was wonderful. But my waiter was rude, and not attentive at all. It took 45 minutes to get my salad. Never did get any bread.

I too have been disappointed by Frank's. After 3 tries I just gave up.
Food: mediocre at best
Service was Ok but more along the lines of a diner

Prices were quite high for what you got in the way of food and service.

I've lived in the Atlanta Metro area since the mid 50's and Franks reminds me of that era in Atlanta. I survived It and don't particularly want to go back for more.

Although part of the fun of introducing someone to Frank's has always been telling them we're going to dinner at a gas station, I'm thrilled to have Frank's closer to home. It's good to keep Fayette money in Fayette and I'm happy to support a local restaurant with good food and good service. The Mill is a lovely location and I hope Frank's at the Mill will be around for a long time.

I dont mind paying for good food, but I dont want a Waffle house cut steak for $26 either.
To assume that I have alterior motives such as not tipping well is relly getting rather rude.
I always tip well , and get great service all over Fayetteville/ PTC because the servers KNOW they will be tipped well when we leave.
I posted this because I was truely disappointed (and had a bit of indigestion). We probably will try the new location, but I wont be ordering steak. Waffle house has the same size steak much cheaper.
OK just kidding about WH, I'll go to Long Branch for steak.

Love simply, Love generously,
Care deeply, Speak kindly and
Leave the rest to God.

You know it takes some kind of moxy, to expand an endeavor in this economy, you might as well just throw some dice and see what turns up.. Hats off to ya Franks.....Good luck on your venture.. And to my man above, Waffle house should be able to accomodate you next time you take your lady out on the town....How Petty...probably just trying to justify not leaving a tip.....BLESS

Its sound crazy but right now is the time to expand. Whether you are buyinn or renting everything is cheap. Yeah, you might not make any sales for the next year but you can negotiate rent. My friend recently signed a lease that he doesn't start paying on for six months and his rent will still be dirt cheap after that.

If people don't plan for things to bounce back they won't. And if they don't come back then who care we are all screwed anyhow. So, you might as well be positive and plan on them coming back.

Just like i was saying might as well throw them dice and see what turns up ehh??? What ya got to lose anyway at this point.. Kinda like in BEYOND THUNDERDOME, when Auntie, Tina Turner welches on the deal between her and Max.. And decides Max fate with the spin of the wheel...Two men enter one man leaves....Spin the wheel make the deal. Hey if all else fails, Chuck Norris will come save us, like all those P.O.W.s in MISSING IN ACTION PT 1-2-3....Chuck Norris and Sara Palin for President next time round, now thats Action you can believe in.....PEACE

Thats ok. Frank's doesn't need you. Every time I go there they have a line out the door. Also, you will notice that no one one this blog (other than you) has said one negative word. And if the people on this website can't find somthing to complain about then Frank's must be doing somthing right.

I fully agree with the person below. FRANK'S ROCKS!

Did anyone else read this headline literally and fear that the Mill site was going to be turned into a hotdog stand?

I think it's a marriage made in Heaven, the worst part of Frank's restaurant is the crazy parking scheme. I refuse to go there on Friday nights because it's a waste of gas to circle that goofy parking lot looking for a space (plus if you want to park around back you have to go back out on the highway and make an immediate left turn).

Insofar as the food goes, I've never had bad food there, but I don't care for their baklava on the dessert menu.

Used to live in Sharpsburg and ate there all the time-it was always great! I am thrilled to hear about it moving into the Mill!

And the Mill location will make it even better.

I'm happy to hear Frank's is going into the Mill - what a great location.

We go to Frank's in Palmetto several times a year and it is always good - only problem is location and the Mill will solve that problem.

Good luck to them. Not the best time to open a new restaurant but if anyone can succeed, Frank's can - they have a real loyal bunch of customers.

Can the Mill location serve alcohol since it is within 200' of residential?

The other incarnations of Mill restaurants served so I'm sure Frank's will also.

Frank's in Palmetto is pretty good and this location will be a helluva lot better than the Palmetto joint next to a rundown gas station Smiling

Frank's is going to do well at the Mill location.

I will buy you a drink or two there just like I did 7 years ago - remember?

Far as I know, he posts here as Dan Tennant.

I've never had any alcohol at Frank's, just lunch.

that 200' is usually measured by roadway, not as the crow flies.
