Service with a smile and very good food to boot. It's just rather a strange place. The radio station was playing Elvis, but it was a radio station, with talking. Pretty strange for a restaurant.

Looking at the other reviews, maybe I caught them on a good night. The service was conspicuous for being spot on. The food arrived still appropriately warm from the kitchen. And my only complaint about the jambalaya is that there was too much of it....More

We were looking for place and it was a little late. The bar menu serves until 11pm on the weekends. We had the Steak Burger and our other couple had seafood. Friendly staff and the food was very tasty.

The baked garlic appetizer tasred like it was cooked in a microwave. The shrimp scampi was ok. The peanut butter pie did not appear to be homemade. The bread, salad, and side of rice were delish.

I can't resist a place with a martini glass in its signage, and usually I'm disappointed. Not this time. Frankie's menu, food, and service were better than expected for an old resort town where standards are often low. We avoided the high end of the...More
