My husband and I shared the jumbo bacon wrapped jumbo shrimp appetizer. Awesome! And I don't really care for bacon, but it was so thinly sliced I barely noticed the texture, but the saltiness was awesome. Pizza was great too! Too much food for the both of us. We didn't have a refrigerator so we ate it all and were... More

We found Frank's Grill while we were checking out a marketplace. There were flags of the Saskatchewan RRs, BC Lions, Canucks, Kelowna Rockets and more, so bring your hometown team flag for Frank's Grill. The deep fried shrimp and the pizzas were excellent! Frank is from Windsor, Ontario and is very friendly. We loved it here!

The night we went to Frank's, it was very busy....Oscar night....so service was a little slow. However, the pizza, cooked in a wood burning pizza oven was excellent. The other food we ordered was just okay. Nothing special in my opinion.

If you love shrimp and you love bacon - then eat at Frank's and have the Zapatizer. Then have one of their terrific oven baked pizzas. Live music Friday evenings and cold beer every day.

Awesome! Fun place and great food. Haven't had a disappointing meal yet. Our number one place to go. You gotta try the stuffed shrimp.

This restaurant has excellent food and service. It has huge screen tv's for any game that you want to watch or just tv while you dine. It's also a great place to just have a drink with friends after the beach. My only complaint would be the manager there, she is very rude and mean to her employees in front of the customers. The food, servers are great and the service is A++.
