Ok, first, remember your reviewing a place in Cicero, NY outside of Syracuse, NY. Enough said right? But let's be honest here, Franks resides on a main drag in Cicero, NY. Recently, we, unknown to others went to Franks on a Thursday night to order food, or just, let's call it, garbage. The bartenders, although attractive, could serve people useless... More

For many years we have been visiting for our Friday night fish. The waitresses --during their hustle on the busy evenings take care of every detail. We enjoy the haddock dinner---We love to visit with Gail and the other waitresses.

The best fried seafood platter in the Syracuse area. Be sure to try the twice baked potato. The service is always great and the food, no mater what you order is always great also.

They are known for their seafood, but their other food is good too. It can get busy during normal dinner hours, but it's worth the wait. It's pricier than a diner, but the food is better.

The two of us waited over 30 minutes for "utica greens" and a haddock dish. The Utica Greens were mushy, greasy, and I couldn't even tell you what was in there- the ingredients floating around in the bowl were unrecognizable. The haddock was OK but not worth the wait, besides fried fish places are a dime a dozen in the... More

This joint has a cozy, neighborhood feel. Great service and good food with some local flair. Try the Hash Brown Haddock for a unique treat.

I went to Frank's Plank Road based on the recommendations of some friends. This was my experience: After we were seated and they took our drink and food order, the server brought our salads with no utensils. We tried for ten minutes to flag her down so we could get some utensils. Apparently, several patrons at other tables were experiencing... More

There has to be a better place to eat in cicero than this, highly recommended by the hotel I stay at,the service is slow and the atmosphere is like a bar/ restaurant from the 70 s . The waitresses are friendly but very unorganized. When you walk in you notice all the locals with their baseball hats on backward. The... More

This is American food, northern NY style, and everything is NOT fried. We ate excellent fresh grilled fish with baked potato and salad for $13. Local bar style, casual. Waitresses are a bit bored and seem overworked, but they do smile from time to time.
