If you haven’t been to Frankie’s in the last 5 weeks, you need to go check out the new talented chef! We had the best meal of our week at Frankie’s. Unfortunately, it was the last night of our stay or we would have gone back. The half priced appetizers on Thursday eve included a generous serving of tender calamari that was so good, as were our seafood entrees. The menu has a lot of classic comfort foods, which fit perfectly with the vintage supper club atmosphere, but the chef updates them with his own spin for a delicious result. We loved everything about this place; the helpful staff, the retro vibe and the crazy good food. Can’t wait to go back!

We went to Frankie's one evening after driving by it for years. We picked an August weekend and we were sure we'd not be able to get in. We called and made reservations and they were very pleasant and helpful in getting us in. We sat outside and it was perfect as the day had been hot but by the time we got there the temp had gone down and there was a slight breeze. Drinks and the Antipasti were a great way to start. Our waitress was nice and very fun. She helped out with great suggestions all through dinner. Great food all the way around - even dessert. Really found this place to be a fun evening and the food and service were just fine. Will return soon.

I plan a dinner here every year during our vacation. This time we had a wonderful guitarist/singer playing in the dining room. Best French Martini ever, amazing Shimp Roll appetizer, great Halibut and a relaxing calm atmosphere. After a busy day at the beach or shopping, this is a great place to chill and eat a good meal. Drinks at the bar afterwards is a pleasant ending to a great day.

Have been a long-time fan of Frankie's for years. Was surprised to walk in recently and see the physical changes, but not very happy with the experience. Let's just say we had a condescending waiter who was also serving as bartender and we almost walked out. He blamed the management for insisting there would be no alterations to the menu (i.e.: to make a dish gluten free by substituting potatoes for pasta). When we mentioned we had never experienced any problem there before with such a request, his tone became quite annoyed and he said it was not his or the chef's decision. While he brought our wine fairly quickly, our order was 'misplaced' (we overheard his conversation a few feet away with another server and it was clear he didn't follow through on checking whether it has been put in). It took over a half hour to get our meal in a half empty restaurant. On a positive note, the food was excellent- the new chef is Cheryl Bernacci (sorry if I misspelled the name) and we have eaten at other establishments where she has cooked. The server/bartender was very prompt to bring the bill however, and at that time made a lame apology with excuses as to how he initially acted. I really hope management reads this, because with help like that, you will lose customers quickly no matter how well prepared the meals are. May come back, may not...will be watching other reviewers to see if they had a similar experience.

Frankies just catered a finner for me. The food was excellent. All of my guests said that it was sme of the best food they had had in a long time. Delivery was right on time and there was plenty of food for everyone. I would highly recommend Frankies not only as a good restaurant to go to but excellent catering. Thanks to Cheryl and her entire staff.
