Over priced and not great food

Went to Fran's for dinner because of the "deal" that included a main meal, 2 rum drinks and chocolate cake for desert. Turns out the rum drinks have very little rum in them and the meal was very small. The chocolate cake was ok but overall our visit to Fran's wasn't worth the price ($25Bz each). Go... read more

Fran is the best! She is honest, funny, reasonable and cooks a delicious meal. Shrimp chicken or fish, it is all amazing! Including rum punch, three delicious pieces of garlic bread, mashed potatoes, a main dish, and chocolate cake at the end. What a wonderful place to eat beachside bbq!

If you have never had a lobster omelet the this is the place to go. She also has great fry jacks. Located 1 block from the ocean at the north end.

Our meal at Fran's Grill was the only bad experience in Caye Caulker. Chicken breast turned out to be chicken wing, the free rum drinks were actually rum free, and they refused to serve the second "free" rum drink because it was raining!!! Awful rude service and hair in food to boot, so risk this place for a meal at... More

Located on Front Street, Fran's Grill was reasonably priced, tasty food in the open (picnic tables). Want beer? Pick it up at the grocery store across the road! Friendly atmosphere with Caribbean breezes and good food.

It's a great location, but the food is average at best. The mashed potatoes were instant from the supermarket across the street. Service was as poor as we've had on the island. You'll never see locals here, as they know you can get better dinners elsewhere. It's worth it if you want to eat ON the beach, but other than... More

Great place! You just eat outside at a picnic table. Fran and the other man who work here are two of the nicest people you'll meet on the island. Try the jerk chicken, it's great!

Love Fran and her restaurant! We had a large party and the restaurant was full, so one of Fran's team members when and got us our own picnic table. They also only serve rum drinks and have no issue with your bringing your own wine or beer. Everyone was very pleased with their food; everything is grilled right there on... More

Great location right on the beach and Fran works the public like your favorite aunt. Good meal for the price.

I went to Fran's on a whim and had the jerk chicken... It was amazing! I see why everyone is iffy about Fran seeing that she's a bit pushy and rude, but I came for the food and was not disappointed!
