Valentine's Day Special Menus & More
We will be open for Valentine's, serving our regular menu with specials.
I previously thought this was one of the best restaurants in Camden but I was disappointed with my last visit (Jan. 2021) on several fronts. First, in the middle of the pandemic, the staff was wearing plastic face shields that only sort of covered the lower half of their faces. The service was slow and our table was served by a high school student who was friendly but not well-trained. For example, our entrees were served with no silverware for one of the settings and that took almost 10 minutes to rectify. There was a loud humming electric heater near our table that created a distracting background noise that virtually drowned out the house music. And mostly importantly, the food seemed merely average. Granted it was January and off-season but not the experience that I remember from summers past.
Fabulous food, wonderful services. The cheesy grits, scallops and mussels are to die for. The menu accommodates a wide range of tastes, from slow roasted ribs, creative salads to the freshest seafood available.
The atmosphere is intimate, yet energetic. Franny's Bistro is the #1 choice for the finest sophisticated, casual dining in mid-coast ME.
The food is always excellent. The service is great and we love the bistro ambiance. We go there a lot and are very picky about which restaurants we frequent.
We have been eating at Frannies since they opened and have never had anything less than a fantastic experience. From the wine list to the dessert menu everything is fresh, creative and well served.
We met friends for a long overdue visit and chose Franny's (it's a favorite) and we enjoy it each and every time we are there. The meal was perfect. Everyone ordered something different so we got to have a taste of some great dishes. Everything came nice and hot and in a timely manner. Service was great and timely!
I would highly recommend Franny's. We're always happy when we can snag a reservation and can't wait to return!
Frankly, this is the best restaurant in Camden, and those of you familiar with this area know that that's really saying something. This neighborhood gem, a little off the beaten path (but not far at all) has never failed us. I don't think we've ordered the same dish twice and everything we've tried has been simply outstanding. Drive a few blocks off the main road and put yourself in the hands of the chef at Franny's, and you will never be disappointed.
the food was wonderful and excellent wine selection
We had a wonderful meal and the service was excellent. Would definitely go back.
Lovely way to spend my birthday and the experience was very special. The food was amazing. Highly recommend!
Everything was fabulous! Food, wine list, service and ambiance was above expectations.
Wonderful! A great neighborhood find and very possibly our new favorite place to eat in Camden.
We made a reservation online last minute. The atmosphere was cozy and moderately casual (also very kind and attentive service), but the food and drink were incredible! Franny's salad was delicious with a balance of flavors (and we hope to reimagine the combination of flavors ourselves at home) and the main course of scallops and mussels with grits should win awards. It was an out of this world dish that will top the charts for a long time for me and my husband who consider ourselves foodies. We are an hour and a half away, but sometime, we will definitely be back!
Great food, service, and ambiance. Always a favorite.
What a find. Worth the drive for creative and delicious cuisine
The food here is always amazing. Whether it is a special or when of their standard items from the menu, it is always delicious. We also love the people and the service. Go and visit them, you will not be disappointed.
It’s wonderful, family owned bistro (even the kids help and are adorable) with delicious food!
Had not been here before and had a great meal on Thanksgiving! No turkey which was fine for us. All our choices were excellent and great service! Highly recommend!
Fantastic food and ambiance! Perfect for date night or a romantic evening. Everything was amazing!
We sat under the tent that Franny's has set up as out-door seating during the covid era. It was calming with 60s era music quietly in the background. For mid-October it was a bit too toasty for our taste given that we were warmly dressed. Chalk that up to the three propane area heaters that were on full-blast.
We had the shrimp dumplings, roasted romaine Caesar salad, and split the mussels and scallops entree over cheddar grits with bacon and creamed corn. All delicious.
The outdoor dining area is charming, with effective heat lamps for cool autumn evenings. I ordered one of the specials, the swordfish, which was excellent but the size of the swordfish portion was very small, about 4 oz. Otherwise I would have given it a 5-star rating.
We are outside in their lovely tent. Plenty of air ventilation so we were not concerned about covid which we would have been indoors. The tent was super cozy with limited seating and plenty of warm rugs and music to set a relaxed tone. The food was very good and the service was great. We would definitely come back!
We had a great dinner at Frannys and sat outside in the tent. There are plenty of heaters and we did not even need to keep our jackets on. I had the grilled Cesar salad and scallops and mussels with grits. Delish! And very large portions! Our server was very attentive and did a great job.
My only comment would be concerning the masks all the employees are wearing. I understand the desire to see their smiles, but these masks are not preventing aerosols from going in or out and it made us uncomfortable. Especially for the servers that are so close to a table of unmasked diners. For their safety they should be wearing a mask that has more coverage.
I wish we lived closer so I could try everything! Lovely menu and wine selection and the service was attentive and extremely knowledgeable. We ordered the crab cakes to share - which were the best we'd had yet. I had the special with mussels and scallops - truly divine - and my husband ordered the halibut which was also perfection. We shared the chocolate (flourless I believe) dessert with homemade toffee - AMAZING! Would have gone back the next night for the steak if possible.
We were greeted warmly upon our arrival. Our server was extremely pleasant and attentive throughout our dinner hour. We had a quiet and excellent dinner and will visit when we travel to Maine next summer.
We were pleasantly pleased with the entire experience...Food, drinks, and service were excellent...Ambience was cozy and quiet, but not dull. Even with Covid 19 restrictions, there was a sense of comradery in the air. We did not feel isolated like so many restaurants trying to comply with Covid 19 guidelines. 5 stars in every aspect...
My husband and I split a Caesar Salad which was grilled and delicious. (The salads were quite large so I would suggest splitting it). For an entree, my husband got the shrimp and grits which were excellent. I got the swordfish special which was a fairly thin piece of swordfish (very slightly overcooked, I thought) for $30.00. The accompaniments on the plate were very good, though. I ate it all, no problem! We split a dessert (the chocolate choice) which was decadent and delicious. Our server was terrific. If the swordfish were a little larger and thicker, I would have given the restaurant 5 stars. I still would recommend going, though. We ate in a tent outside with heaters and plenty of ventilation during these Covid times. We felt quite safe.
Food is excellent. Duck Confit salad to die for. Lovely wine and cocktail list . Great place year round. They were very conscientious about covid protocols and we felt safe eating inside totally distanced from everyone else. Highly recommend.
The only issue was the staffs masks did not appear very safe.
Great food. Really like the new outdoor tent - nice and cozy.
Charming outside setting with heaters to take away the autumn chill. Seafood linguine special was terrific, as were the frites. Halibut was fresh and delightfully prepared. Service was friendly, if a bit slow.
What a wonderful evening! We shared the mussels for an appetizer, so fresh with a great flavor profile. I had the halibut and my husband had a Portuguese seafood dish with linguine. They were both specials that evening and we were both very happy with our choices. I would go back in a heartbeat.....my kind of place!
Great little local spot. Enjoyed it very much. Great service by all the waitresses. Very attentive and nice.
I had steak frites based on reviews I read. It was OK. Probably would not get again. The meat was a little tough and had a little flavor. But it wasn’t bad by any means. My guest had a seafood pasta that was outstanding.
Will definitely come back! Can’t wait.
Great place! We went for the first time in August and we loved it so much brought our friends this time. Now they love it too! We look forward to the next time we can go back when we are in the area again.
This was third time back and time for a review. Consistency counts! Every time we dined here we were delighted to find such an overall excellent dining experience. Outdoor dining during this pandemic was very carefully thought through and it shows.
Excellent as always. Our favorite restaurant in Camden for a nice occasion or just a nice date night.
Franny’s is a must go spot! The food was outstanding ! The ambiance and Service was excellent! Can’t wait to visit again. You will not be disappointed!
Love everything about Franny’s. The ambiance is so warm and classy, the service is outstanding and the food is incredible. There are so many great dishes to choose from. The cheddar grits...OMG, so delicious. The seafood linguine is amazing, such a great blend of flavors. The ragu with short rib and meatballs...YUM. The food portions are generous. We loved our first meal so much we went back two nights later. My only criticism is that that they did not pour a full 5 oz glass of wine. We avoided that happening a second time by ordering a bottle. Wonderful restaurant. If I lived in the area, I’d be tempted to dine there three times a week.
Excellent restaurant! Very interesting menu, well prepared, excellent service. And Franny's did a great and creative job creating a safe and comfortable environment for dining during COVID. The outdoor seating area was very comfortable, even on a rather cool and rainy evening (lots of heaters!). We strongly recommend it!
Outstanding, if you do not want lobster! Wine list a little pricy but the Charles Smith Cab was excellent. Steak, too. And the mussels are quite large and very good.
The outdoor dining set up is incredible. Finish your meal with a shot of "blueshine"!
