Frank always remembers us and welcomes us back. He also makes sure he stops for a visit while we are dining there. The pizza, cooked over a wood fire, is absolutely the best.

The food is good and so is the atmosphere, but what makes the place is the attention that Frank pays to making sure every guest is welcomed, greeted and Thanked for their visit. He is what makes you want to come back

Franks has a great vibe, good energy and is a great sports bar. Visited over Christmas 2016 and caught a few hockey games, lots of screens and choice of games, easy to find and in a good location. Great atmosphere; owner is very visible and visits every table, lots of chatter between tables, friendly place. Food is just okay and... More

Franks is owned by a Canadian who moved to Ixtapa. We are hockey fans so a match made in heaven. Frank seems to be there all the time so I don't think he ever sleeps. He is very attentive to his customers and does his best along with his staff to make your visit the best possible. He greets you... More

We recently visited Ixtapa and went to Frank's place a couple times. The first time was to watch a hockey game in the second time was just to have a change of pace from our all-inclusive hotel. The service was pretty good the first time and we ordered appetizers and service was good and attentive. Fun to watch a game... More

We stumbled upon this place by just wandering around ixtapa. Frank himself is another Canadian super friendly man came over to chat and share his story. The others in the bar were all very friendly. Food was quick and delicious

This restaurant has excellent food and service. It has huge screen tv's for any game that you want to watch or just tv while you dine. It's also a great place to just have a drink with friends after the beach. My only complaint would be the manager there, she is very rude and mean to her employees in front of the customers. The food, servers are great and the service is A++.
