Very reasonably priced lunch buffet. Small salad bar but still good. Many soups to try and great selection of meats . Food was displayed very nice. And desserts were great too. Forget your diet when coming for this buffet.

My friend and I wanted to try somewhere new to eat and decided to head downtown. The service was fantastic and the food was even better. They had a chicken and pasta buffet for $11.99. You can't beat that price!

Frank's Walleye fried fish on the dinner buffet is excellent. The chili is tasty also. It is hard to go wrong here. The customer service is also very good.

We go to the Soo a lot. Every trip ends with breakfast at Franks. You will never go home hungry. The food is hot and fresh. Your coffee cup will never be empty

We visit the Sault a lot, because we have a son at LSSU. The hotel we stay in gives you a free breakfast, but it tastes like a free breakfast. Frank's is better. All their bread is made on site, and is delicious. The portions are good, not too small or too big. Our waitress was very friendly, kept the... More

If you're looking for average tasting, generously portioned, affordable meals with not overly friendly service this is your place! Was discouraged from ordering the pizza by our server because "it takes too long." Bummer because this was the only option that sounded remotely good for lunch today. Settled for the breakfast bar which was just OK. My daughter loved her... More

Locals at the the Soo Locks recommended Frank's over other eateries. Should have tried the others. Checked the buffet, but decided not to indulge in the "mystery meat" I was told was a beef round simmering and steaming under heat lamps. My wife had the walleye basket which was very good. Nice tender fillets with the baked potato option. My... More

My wife and I stopped here for breakfast. Got in at 10 am and after 11 am finally left. Order was taken after about 5 minutes. After another 15 minutes asked for coffee refill which never came. It appears if you are a local you may get served, however if the waitress ,( who obviously doesn't have access to a... More

Tried this restaurant on recommendation of hotel staff and Tripadvisor of course. Checked the menu online. Waitress told us no whitefish because not in season (season still has a month to go) but ordered Perch instead, expecting yellow or lake perch but got ocean perch which was ok but not what expected. Food was very slow to arrive but portions... More

The staff at our motel recommended Franks and I'm glad they did. Good food, with huge portions, at a reasonable price. Nothing fancy, just a good place to eat.
