We had a lovely time here, great service, great menu, loved that it is BYOB (it helps make up for the rather high prices). However, the huge portions were not a plus. It was just...too much, too heavy and overall somewhat disappointing.

I am not sure where to start with this review, everything here was amazing from start to finish. The place is cozy, the people so friendly and nice and the food just plain amazing! Just remember this is a BYOB place and a cash only place but omg it's sooooooooo good! Portions are huge! Prices are $22-$39 a plate that... More

I am thrilled that this simple phenomenal restaurant has thrived and survived through the years. I love every bite of everything I order. The staff is very attentive and kind and helpful. Remember to BYOB ( a great moneysaving feature) and leave the credit cards behind. The haddock was cooked to perfection and everything is so fresh and natural and... More

Very unique place that is worth the trip! All portions are extremely large. My chicken and broccoli dish could have fed 4 people. The petite (side) dinner salad could have been shared among 3 people, so go hungry or just be aware of how much food you will be served. FYI this restaurant is BYOB and cash only and I... More

I have been to Frankie & Johnny's over the years. This is the first time I was disappointed. The lobster purses were delicious very light and lots of lobster. I ordered the NY Strip steak and my friend ordered the Rack of Lamb. My steak was slightly over cooked the waitree wanted to take it back and cook another but... More

Frankie and Johnny's is a different type of restaurant. Located on Route 1 in Maine, near the seacoast, the restaurant is located in a rather ordinary looking brown building that is deceptive. One would hardly think that excellent cuisine lies herein. In fact, unless you had heard about it or read about it, you may bypass it because of the... More

F&J's is one of the best restaurants in New England. We have eaten there numerous times over the past 20+ years on our annual summer visit to Ogunquit. Johnny is a master chef. In our three recent meals, our guests and we have had the ahi tuna, chile encrusted salmon, divers scallops and an exquisite polenta/tofu vegetarian dish. Every entree... More

A recent trip to Frankie & Johnny's was a first. We had an early reservation and the restaurant was full quickly after. We ordered the pumpkin ravioli and the signature chicken dish. The portions were large, enough to take home. The house salad that came with the entrees was delicious -- picture all types of fresh vegies, fruit, and nuts... More

Bring your own wine and bring cash - the best and potentially the worst of the experience - but they do warn you of both ahead of time. Otherwise the service, the food, the pairings of various different foods that one would not immediately put together and the portions were all spectacular. My wife's stuffed haddock was topped with a... More

My husband and I have been coming to York for 17 years and this is the first time we have ventured out of our normal dining routine. I am so happy we did! This place is by far THE best we have ever been to around York Beach. The atmosphere and staff (including owner Thea) were remarkable, and the food... More
