Very Nice Hotel Resturant

Visited frank and Lola's for breakfast and lunch, and was not dissappointed. The waitstaff were great, very attentive and efficient. The food was tasty, with large generous portions. Lunch on the veranda couldn't get any better with that gorgeous view of the gulf.

I ate breakfast here twice and had a great experience both times. The staff was just family. They could have not been more friendly and efficient. The order was taken quickly ,a pot of good coffee set on my table and, in what seemed like moments my meal arrived. The prices are good and the view is spectacular.

We were staying at the hotel and decided to have a light lunch. The barbecued shrimp were not only delicious, but well presented. The gumbo was not. It had a reasonable amount of seafood, but it was much too spicy. We could barely eat it. We know our Cajun food, as we are from Louisiana originally and like spicy food.... More

Limited menu, but good service and food. Check to see if outside dining is available - we loved that. Kelsea was a great server.

While staying at Margaritaville Hotel, it was most practical to have breakfast at F&L's on site. The breakfast menu was broad with somewhat exquisite choices. I had a seafood omelet with shrimp, crawfish, crab -- and it was great. There were no sides, etc. The portion side was ample, and was adequate without sides. Expecting a very high price with...

This restaurant is very good. Variety with menu items. Great views. If the weather is nice don't pass up sitting outside and listening to the ocean. We have stayed at the hotel a couple of times and always eat breakfast here and usually a couple of dinner meals. We had no issues with the service.

We were there Gumbo festival weekend and met the Lead Souz Chef and his award winning gumbo. The Sunday Brunch proved worthwhile with some YUMMO French toast.

The Cajun influence here makes for the most amazing sea and creole combinations- and the beignet approach brings in another level to French Toast! Do not miss the chef plated brunch specialties here.. Changed every Sunday, and the bottomless Mimosas just make it the perfect way to spend a Sunday morning!

Ate breakfast here on our first day of staying at the Margaritaville but the man serving us was so grumpy it made us not return for the rest of the week. The food was good though, just disappointing that they do not cater for kids at all. No kids menu.kids cups etc.

The service here was great. My husband is a jokester and the young lady who took care of us, Kelsey, was able to roll with the punches. He had ahi tuna and I had coconut shrimp and both were wonderful. The desserts are perfect and large enough to share. Their spinach/crab dip as an appetizer was perfect. We had lunch... More
