“the portions are outlandishly huge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2010

If you are really hungry this is your place. The staff took excellent care of me and the very personable owner came to every table and greeted the patrons. His motto is "No one leaves here hungry." My 8 oz Prime Rib was bigger than so-called 16 oz Prime ribs I have had in the past. The food was very delicious and in spite of my large huge appetite, i could not finish it all!

“Unbeliveable Find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2010

Was recommend by Ladies at the Information Office when heading into Cranbrook. They were so right! This place is awesome. Great prices and a ton of food.. Make sure to bring a huge appetite as you will need it. The schnitzel is huge and very tasty. Plates are filled full and very tasty. Recommend you make reservation as night we went we had to wait (although not long) as was practically lined up out the door.

“Portions are ridiculous.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2010

Enjoyed a good meal hear but the portions are ridiculous. Ridiculously large that is. Order a half plate and then share it. Good old fashioned cooking but totally out of sync with our lifestyle today. Couldn't even take the leftovers because we were on the road. Service was good. Just go hungry, really , really hungry.

“Unexpected fine dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2010

We spent the night at the travellers inn and the innkeeper recommended Franks. I'm glad he did. This was a delightful place. Linnen tablecloths, excellent service and reasonable prices. The meal came with a salad and not jusst lettuce and tomato but a nice gourmet salad. Fresh rolls and the meal itself was excellent. Very tasty and huge portions. Was pleasantly surprised to find such a nice, fine dining establishment in a smaller community. Great place to unwind after a long day on the road. The owner was also very nice.

“Outstanding food and value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2010

Frank's should be designated as of one of Cranbrook 's places to visit. The food was delicious and even the half order was large enough to have left overs for the next day. I'm not usually a fan of schnitzel but after hearing all the guests at other tables raving about theirs, I opted for it, too. What a treat. Wonderfully cooked, great combinations of flavors.
During the meal, Frank (himself) came by and made a point of chatting with each table. He truly seemed interested in greeting us and welcoming us to the restaurant.
