Tried this place Saturday night with family and was pleasantly surprised at how good it is for a Keilor road eatery. I had eaten at an upmarket restaurant in the city the week before but this place was sooo much better, I did not leave hungry or feeling ripped off. The food was great and presented well with really nice... More

Went here with friends the owner was just a nuisance interrupting every five minutes and very loud, wait staff are very attentive and the food was good but watch out when they keep asking you if you want another drink ..... $76 for 6 carlton draught is expensive!!!

We were first surpised by the number of diners on a Monday night. The decore is pleasant and the staff very attentive. Our entree's were delicious. We had calamari (the best ever), whitebait and grilled haloumi cheese and for mains gnocchi, franks special chicken and the veal - all superb. Desserts sounded good but not for us this time.

After a long week it was a joy to be greeted by such friendly staff and wonderful service. The jazz singer gave the place a beautiful ambience, and the food was AMAZING! Well done to all the staff at Frank's!

We hadn't been to this restuarant for over 20 years and lets say we should of left it in the past. The service was good but food was average. We eat out every weekend and franks did not live upto our expectations. My seafood pancake was ordinary and the fritto misto was pub quality. The restuarant was very quiet for... More

Without a booking we tried our luck on a Sunday lunch at this restaurant and we were seated no problems. I chose the seafood marinara risotto and my partner the mexican seafood dish. The meals came out fairly quickly and were accompanied with a smiling waitress. Risotto was amazing, full of flavour and perfectly cooked variety of seafood, my partner... More

As one of our local restaurants we have been to Franks a few times and it's consistently a nice dining experience. The steak and seafood is good and keep an eye out for their half lobster and steak special. A suggestion for the restaurant - think about maybe replacing the pub bistro style chairs in the restaurant with something a... More

The food here is great. Recently had dinner there with a work function. 6 of us were all extremely happy with our seafood and meat dishes. Didn't notice the price because the boss paid but you get what you pay for I guess.
