Had an amazing grilled lobster dinner on the beach and it was Frantastic! Food was delicious and Fran's crew was so friendly. Only thing needing improvement is the all you can drink rum punch during dinner. Needs rum in it

We had dinner at Fran's Beachside Grill where you can have the best grilled lobster in town with free rum punch during the entire stay. The chef Roberto will not stop smiling while preparing your food. Love this place

Yes, be prepared to wait. I think that's half the fun. The lobster is well worth it. Im not going to get bent of out shape on the wait for a lobster dinner and all you can drink for 15USD. I definitely will stop again.

This place is usually packed in the evenings, so expect a bit of a wait. But the food is worth it! There's not much to choose from, but the jerk chicken is to die for. Plus, it includes unlimited top-ups of rum punch. And Fran...More

There are so many better places to eat in Caye Caulker. We fell into Fran's trap with her free rum drinks (there is no rum in them) and the wait for food is super long.
