Huge portions

The food is basic and the portions are huge. The half order of pasta would easily have fed two of us. Service was friendly and timely. Prices were cheap given the portions.

This was our third choice of restaurant as the first two did not have a good choice of vegetarian (pescatarian) meals. I was pleased to see some low carb options on the menu. I chose the tuna and cottage cheese with salad and it was lovely. A huge portion, which I could not finish, so they gave me a box... More

It's always nice to find a restaurant where the owner and staff take pride in what they serve, and how they serve it. We were not expecting to find an eatery where literally everything is homemade. Soups loaded with flavor, excellent sandwiches (steak with mozzarella, onions, mushrooms good choice) hand cut fries, and although I am not a buffet person,... More

We walked over to Frank's Place when viewing ships passing through the locks and were pleasantly surprised by both the very friendly service and the tastysmall-town diner fare. It was nice place to get a bite to eat and we'd definitely go back again.

We were finally ready for dinner Saturday evening at 8:45. My 8-year old son was wanting to go someplace he could get spaghetti. We walked into Frank's to see their sign, "Chicken and Pasta Buffet". We hit the jackpot. The buffet was still on and looked pretty good. Once we were seated, the waiter had seen us eyeing the buffet.... More

This is excellent home cooked food! The egg special was tasty and well priced. It contained ample food and several choice of toast that usually cost extra, including: English muffin bread, cinnamon raisin, and pumpernickel! The service was prompt and waitresses were cheerful and accommodating. Their coffee mugs are large, which I really appreciate! The breakfast was so good and... More

We went here for breakfast with friends who vacation here, and we liked it so much we ate breakfast there the next day, too! Their two egg special is reasonably priced & very filling with eggs cooked your way, choice of meat, home fries or hash browns, & homemade bread toast. I ordered sausage links which were excellent & you... More
