The character of F&J's is different. The people who own/run it appear to be trained chefs who are rooted in the late 60s and early 70s. The food is eclectic, very tasty and pretty much locovar. The servings are gigantic. Lots of veggies and massive and beautifully cooked pork chops as much as 2" thick. Kind of an adventure.

For 20 plus years, Frankie & Johnny's has been the number 1 gourmet restaurant in Ogunquit. Don't be fooled by its underwhelming appearance. This restaurant rates w the best anywhere. You simply cannot go wrong w any dish. All the entrees come w a huge salad or soup of the day. The portions are large but everything is so beautifully... More

Another great meal at Frankie &Johnnies. I had a halibut and lobster special. We had the lobster purses and i also had seafood chowder. My dad had a steak and save room for dessert. Blueberry pie and chocolate flourless cake are outstanding. Go hungry !!Bring your wallet and it is BYOB and cash only.

Actually tried this restaurant based on reviews we read online. Wanted some more creative options other than the ubiquitous lobster and shellfish. The menu did not disappoint. Fabulous appetizer special with ahi tuna stuffed avocado surrounded by arugula salad with strawberries, papaya, and large strips of sautéed sweet plantains. Yum!! Mains came with choice of salad or soup. Everything super... More

We've been here a few times before and were always impressed by both the quality and quantity (too large in reality) of the meals. We always sat in the front room of the place, a fairly small and intimate space. Last night we went again, before attending a show at the Ogunquit Playhouse, and sat in the rear room of... More

this was a great find. they have amazing fish dishes, amazing salads, fabulous appetizers, a rustic yet semi-formal setting with very warm informal service. they treat kids very well. The food is simply amazing (and beware the portions are huge). We had tuna ceviche, curried crab stir-fry, haddock and lobster and, a bunch of other things. Some of the most... More

Food was very good but too much, huge salad or soup included with meal and very plentiful servings. It is BYOB but I consider the meal expensive I would like more ambiance for the price.

This is the best restaurant in Cape Neddick by far!!! The lobster purses are amazing, salads to die for, and hard to pick favorite entree, all are delicious! Johnny is an excellent chef!

First the food! Everything was delicious and the portions were generous. My husband had the lamb chops and was served a full rack. I had a pasta dish with gorgonzola that was very tasty but apparently not to everyone. It is a little sweet but I thought the combination of flavors were great. Coming from the DC area, the quality... More

We have eaten here a few times. It's BYOB, and it's a bit of a funky place. This would not be my first choice for a special dinner celebration, or a romantic dinner for two. But it is a fun place to try good food with friends. Pleasant staff in an eclectic environment.
