It is a local bar and grill for the residents of the area and also many tourists during the summer season. They are known for their burgers and they do a great job. Also many choices of salads to choose from. It can get on the loud side, so if you have kids,it's ok to make some noise. I think... More

Called ahead to see if they take reservations (for a party of ten). Took our name and was told to come in and would have no problem being seated when we got there. Waited almost 45 minutes for a table. Waited another 15 minutes before a waitress came over. Extensive menu with lots of nothing special. Not one person wanted... More

We went here craving burgers and were not disappointed! The burgers are fresh, juicy 10 oz monsters. Only drawback was paying extra for the fries but no biggie. Great atmosphere and good service.

Frankies is a great bar/restaurant which features specials along with their extensive menu. The service is attentive and the atmosphere is festive. We have been there many times and will return many times.The dress is casual, the drinks on the money and the comfort factor high.

Excellent burgers which are very juicy with an over-sized roll. We also had the Fast Frankie's Favorite pastrami sandwich. All food was excellent. Service somewhat slow but manageable. If ordering multiple sandwiches, be aware that everything comes with chips. We had an overflowing basket of chips by the end of the evening. Consider ordering a side in place of the... More

Been coming here for 20+ years. Always enjoyed the food, sometimes the service at the bar just SUCKS! I guess that is why they go through staff and only a few bartenders are there long term. Not that it matters to me, as long as the service is decent, I don't care who serves me. Favorites for me are the... More

Burgers are always good. The bartenders are trained to accommodate you.There is usually an wait for dinner especially in the summer and on week ends.The place is like an old fashioned "CHEERS" type atmosphere but is starting to show some wear and tear. Some freshening up would make it more appealing.Overall is is a good place to check out.

We really lucked out here on our trip back north to NY. Frankie's is an unpretentious bar/diner with a fun mix of blue and white collar locals and some real characters behind the bar. A good selection of beer on tap, a central burger grill serviced by the bar staff (the burgers are a local institution and look great) and... More
