Quaint little Italian restaurant. Plenty of fresh seafood dishes as well. The shrimp scampi was wonderful with fresh pink Florida shrimp. We also had veal parmesan and stuffed shells. A birthday cannoli with a candle to finish it off. Definitely make this a stop when...in Marathon! Bread with roasted garlic in Evo also.More

Wowza. A surprise. Strip mall doesn't set high expectations but the food was amazing. Italian bread with fresh roasted garlic on the side (yeah, we had to have a refill on that), great bisque soup and then, tender, amazing Snapper picatta - fresh, perfectly done....And a side of past with olive oil and parmesan. Delicious carb heaven. You will not be sad you did this. It's a small place and the staff works their tales off - we had a view of the kitchen - wow! Enjoy!More

A little hard to find the place but well worth the effort. The grouper Francese was simply outstanding as were all the dishes we had. Great quality and freshly caught seafood. I definitely recommend this restaurant. It’s rather small so be sure and make reservations.

We heard a lot of good things about Frank’s, but we tried it on our first night in Marathon and we were very disappointed. The food has little to no flavor, the vegetables that were served were clearly frozen and warmed up, then served. Our...lobster bisque was nothing to speak of, it looked like it came out of a can. Honesty we aren’t sure why it is recommended at all. There are many other great places to eat in Marathon, our favorite being the Lighthouse Grill! Don’t waste your time people!More

It was a tight atmosphere with tables a little too close together for covid. Very busy and chaotic. Food was good, mixed reviews buy these three Italian women. The chicken parm was okay. The clams in red sauce was exceptionally good. Not great tomatoes in...Florida for the Caprese salad. And the bread was not good at all. Had an enjoyable time. Needed a reservation.More

Frank is very dedicated in providing quality meals at reasonable prices! I particularly enjoy Grouper Piccata! It's a MUST stop while in town !

Always go to Franks yearly from Ocracoke NC. Frank knows our friends in Elizabeth City who own and run Tony's. Food is always spectacular. The favors and garlic and sauces. Started with steamers which are a huge bowl of littleneck clams full of juices and...garlic. We had escargot wonderful more garlic. great bottle of red zin good bread with olive oil and roasted garlic cloves. Then Veal Marsala, lamb bocce, and 4 lamb chops medium rare. ALLLLLLLL PERFECT. Especially our waiter JOE who made it all happen with his suggestions, knowledge and enthusiasm. Frank is always there and always cooking. He also always has time to speak. I love the place.More

Terrible Service. A smile, a welcome and decent service would have been nice. Not here. Wouldn’t recommend.
