O.K. I am just going to say it; my food was average. But I only ate there one time. The place was packed, and the bar is very popular. The service was excellent. There was live music, a female singer, and she was great. Bonus...my table had a fantastic view of Morro Bay. Lots of boats are headed back in... More

I stayed at the little motel Bayfront Inn next door to Frankie's and they recommended me to eat here for lunch. I had the Frankie Burger with the fried onion rings which was spectacular. Good food and good service - all across from the Bay. Thank you to the Bayfront Inn for recommending this place!

Read lots of reviews for breakfast here but they do some great sandwiches for lunch also. We went in after paddle boarding on Columbus Day and it was really quiet, so much so that we thought it was closed! It's cash only due to increased credit card charges, we were fortunate to have enough cash with us, there is a... More

Our motel recommended this restaurant for breakfast. They were busy but we were able to get a table. We kept our choices fairly simple and the service was quick and the staff reasonably friendly. All our plates were cleaned up which is the sign of good food. The prices were very reasonable and overall represented good value for money.

I'm a local and every time I go here I love it. It's my favorite place to have breakfast. Everything I've tried there is really good. The location is really great too. On the Embarcadero with a nice view of The Rock. All the staff has been super nice and friendly too.

Staff was friendly and quick. I was there on the patio on a quiet Monday morning with my dog. ABC scramble was good (not fabulous, but good) and while the waterfront wasn't peaceful, it was lovely.

Frankie and Lola's is convenient for those looking for a place that is pet friendly. That being said, the patio is small therefore there is usually a wait because of limited seating. Nothing is done to enhance its appearance. The tables are wrought iron and anything that drops remains there. Getting a handful of jelly or syrup on the ground... More

This place was recommended in a recent Times article. We were lucky to arrive on a Friday morning before a long line. Food was prepared fast and delicious. I'd recommend the sexy coffee!
