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!

The chillness of this is,and does not go misunderstood by Fran. She calls people in to enjoy her eats. You head over to the picnic table and she takes your order with love. Grills it street side while the sides are created inside. She has the best garlic bread in town. Amazing jerk chicken and delicious shrimp! Two rum punch... More

My husband and I ended up eating here almost every night of our honeymoon! Fantastic deal for so much food! We even hit the first night of lobster season! Highly recommended! I am not even a big seafood fan and I still crave the garlic butter shrimp!

It was our first night. We were weary from traveling and didn't check our trip advisor notes before heading out to dinner. Big mistake. Terrible service, terrible rum drink, terrible sides and she overcooked the lobster! Don't stop. Walk on by.

A large group of us went to Fran's and whilst service was not fast (we had been pre warned, and we assumed given there were 15 of us, we didn't mind), the food was great - especially the garlic bread which was delicious! Also, you can't argue with free rum punch and chocolate cake!

A group of 13 us ate here and not one person enjoyed their meal. The whole snapper was tiny and mostly bones; the jerk chicken may as well have been seagull, it was just skin and bone. The meal was served with sloppy mashed potato and soggy garlic bread, although the bread was the best part of the meal. You... More

Simply just a bbq out the front where Fran cooks and some park benches but for $B20 was definately the best bbq chicken we have ever eaten. Came with garlic bread and mash potato plus rum n pineapple. Started raining heavily so we had to wait undercover for 30 mins but was well worth the wait
