Gem of a place

Based on all the online reviews, I called to make a reservation. Who leaves a message on an answering machine to make a reservation? My wife and I figured to give it a try. Well guess what? The wait staff and owner were great, the food was excellent and too much to eat. Now I know why no one has... read more

This place is fantastic!!! AND, you can bring your own beverages!! So if you want a great meal with a nice wine (without having to pay the restaurant's/bar's mark-up), go out and buy a nice bottle (or two) and get what you pay for. The food is outstanding and you have a choice of soup or salad to begin -... More

We have passed by this seemingly unassuming place many times over the years, but it wasn't until a local suggested it that we decided to try it. Boy, we were not disappointed- each of us in our party of six tried something different. Fresh, simply prepared but with exquisite flavor are words we used to describe the Diver scallops, swordfish,... More

If you are in the area, this should be one of your stops. Don't be fooled by the appearance. The staff is friendly and helpful, the food is superb. Prices are a bit high but only because the quantities are very large. You will not leave hungry!

Brought to F&J by a local friend who frequents the place regularly. We had the inside scoop on cash only a portion sizes. My wife had the swordfish salad and it truly could have fed the table. Besides the perfectly cooked swordfish the salad was filled with a multitude of local ingredients, many from the owners garden. The house dressing... More

There's something very off-putting about being served a meal for one that is enough for four. The quantity of food takes away the enjoyment of dinner out at this over-the-top restaurant. No thanks.

We have vacationed in Cape Neddick Maine since 1999 & driven by this place hundreds of times and finally stopped on reccomendations from friends. This had to be the best meal we've had in our entire lives!!!! No Fooling! Portions huge and the BYOB saves you a bundle. Tia was a hoot and made the night a blast for us... More

Once again we went to this restaurant with another couple. They are a small place and limit the amount of people coming in so they can treat them better. Its a must to make reservations and they will not call you back unless your reservation time is not reserved. If you don't have a call back your set. They accept... More

Through the years, I have driven past Frankie's and Johnny's a hundred times.Six of us dined there last week end. It was totally an outstanding experience. The home made rolls were excellent. The house salad was plentiful and made with locally grown produce. It was a meal in its self. The main course was over the top. We all ordered... More
