“Friendly Frank's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

On a busy Saturday we found parking in town right in front of Frank's so we decided to try it. Although there appeared to be only one other occupied table (it was late for lunch) we sat down on the deck. Turns out the other table was the family who run the restaurant. They were very attentive and friendly without being obtrusive. The food was like good diner food- a fresh BLT, juicy cheeseburger and what my family likes to call "bowling alley" fries hot out of the fryer. During our meal we were entertained by a chipmunk and as we ate other tables filled up. Frank's has no pretensions, just good food.

“below average food with even worse service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

2 visits...first one just got an ice cream cone. The ice cream was mediocre at best, nothing special, most customers probably just don't want to wait in line for Ben & Jerry's. the guy gives you your cone then asks for payment so you have to maneuver your wallet with one hand while holding the cone in the other. when i asked him about that he gave me a smart answer with attitude and i swore to never go back.....

Decided to give another try for some food because i love these type of places and thought maybe bad night with a bad person.ordered it to go because was told their dog policy is you can sit on an end table near the fence and tie your dog up to the other side of the fence. ordered a hot dog, burger and fries (sold seperatly, no added side for a certain $ amount) Ordered the burger, lettuce tomato, onion, ketchup and mayo. got it home, 8 miles away, opened it up, one tiny tomato slice but worse no ketchup for the burger and no ketchup for the fries and i had none at my destination so i;m stuck paying $12 something, actually higher because i still tip on take out so my below average food was even worse without any ketchup to put on it. has i not asked for any i could almost understand.

To summarize, sub par food with below par service all backed up by a non friendly owner. They should be grateful for tourists because us locals know better and will never eat there. if you are visiting bolton and the lake don't get suckered in by the low priced food because in this case you don't even get what you pay for and the owners could care less!

“Good Old Fashioned Fast Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Frank's features hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese, breakfast and other coffee shop/luncheonette fare along with an ice-cream window. Seating is at the pleasantly shaded outdoor deck with lake views or in a small dining room.

We visited for lunch. I had a burger and shared an order of onion rings. The burger was a typical small, frozen patty, but was prepared well and served on a good bun. The onion rings were very good.

Service was good. Overall, Frank's is a pleasant place to have a quick, but unexceptional lunch.
