Very good food and service. A busy place so not a quick meal but easy to wait. That evening it was a challenge to get the order right but everything was good

Great food, fun atmosphere. Frank himself speaks with all customers and makes everyone feel welcome. He is sincere in his appreciation of your visit and goes the extra mile to get your team on one of the screens. A band in the street at night...More

Great place for some live music, a few beers and the Shrimp, cheese and bacon appetizer is outstanding. Frank is a personable host and always greets his guests.

Four of us dined at franks. Food , service, and atmosphere was great. The ribs were some of the best I have ever had in my life. The fish was great as well.

Portions are huge. Staff friendly. Canadian owned I believe. Go before 7 or you could be waiting a bit. Tortilla soup was amazeballs.

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++.
