Surprisingly good food and attentive service. Only drawback is noise level sometimes too much. Large open space and view of river. Very loyal crowd for music events.

Friday night there was a private event and Saturday night I had reservations somewhere else. Because I had to at least experience something about Frontier Cafe, I decided to eat dessert there on Saturday. I sat at the bar; tables being full. The bartender was gracious and welcoming and did not make me feel weird for just ordering dessert. I... More

I have been to Frontier twice since the more recent renovations to both the menu and the venue, and enjoyed my food very much on both occasions. The last time I had the Green Curry, and was delighted to find that the staff were willing to customize my order by using broccoli in place of the peppers. This more recent... More

The cocktails were fun and sophisticated, the server was knowledgeable and the food was great. What more can I say.

I ordered the curried muscles, big mistake on my part. They were extremely small (tiny) and the curry crap I could do without. The bread that came with them was very tasty. We also ordered the fish and chips - a new experience for me wrapped in a brown paper roll, British style. Overall, it was all OK, the curried... More

Heard about this spot a while ago and finally went last night. The food was very good with a variety of soups, salads, sandwiches and entrees at a decent price. The service was efficient and friendly. There were two drawbacks which led me to deduct a star from the rating: lack of handicap entryways, limited parking in a slanted parking... More

This restaurant was difficult to find the entrance to. Once we were finally inside we liked the high ceilings & the art on the walls, old factory/industrial feel. It was dusk so we did have a nice view of the sunset. But it was very loud inside despite there only being a few patrons there. Service was very slow on... More

Frontier is at the end of a labrynthine passage in Fort Andross, but it's worth the walk. The interesting dining room has a very nice river view. The vibe is college town earnest hipster. The waitstaff were very nice. We started off with an excellent Negroni, a delightfully spicy Bloody Mary and a couple of glasses of wine. We all... More

My bad for not writing a(nother) glowing review sooner. Truth is my wife and I come here often - for the ambiance [stunning space], for the [always] outstanding and friendly service, and above all for the food [always delicious, always plentiful, always reasonably priced]. To sum it up; Frontier is a very VERY special place served, owned, and operated by... More
