Great take out Lunch

We wanted a take out lunch to bring with us to Campobello Island and Frank's fit the bill. There are not any cold sandwiches on the menu so you have to wait a bit for the hot sandwiches or other take out items to be prepared, but it is well worth the wait. The sausage sub and pastrami sandwich... read more

We went to Frank's last night for a birthday dinner. He had told us the next time we came he would make chocolate mousse for us if we let him know ahead of time. He kept his word and I was in Heaven. This is a must and if it is on the menu you have to try it. We... More

Frank's has authentic seafood dishes that are every bit as good as my grandmother use to make. That is saying a lot. The view is wonderful. The prices are reasonable. Service is outstanding. Please note that Franks is open during from late spring to early fall.

Was bracing myself for this trial run at a place I had never tried before, and I discovered that it was very good! I didn't know that a simple tuna sandwich could turn out to be so delicious. Had invited a couple friends to go along with me to try out this small restaurant, and it was not disappointing at... More

It's been 24 hours since I had dinner at Frank's and I cannot stop thinking about the wonderful pasta! My boyfriend and I went with another couple and we had such a great evening. It was a fun, homey atmosphere with some amazing food. We started out with boneless wings and drinks. I'm not a wing person but I thought... More

This is probably our 6th or 7th visit to Franks. What seems to draw us back is their really excellent onion soup and the great views. In addition to the soup, virtually any seafood dish is excellent. I especially like the local fried shrimp dish. The shrimp are small but local and very fresh and sweet. My wife loves their... More

Small and crowded when we arrived but the staff worked their tails off and got us seated quickly. We met a couple I talked with at the Eastland Model and we decided to sit together to save space. A delightful evening meeting new people over an exceptional meal. Frank was a New York Chef and it showed, the veal I... More
