Breakfast

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

Franks serves generous portions and the food is delicious. Nothing up-scale about it. Family restaurant with great breakfasts, burgers, and more.

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 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
