Adorable little place on the hill overlooking the water! Most go for the ice cream on a waffle cone but the sandwiches and the pizza are great also! Kid and dog friendly . The owner is a local and is there working hard along with her staff!

Everything was good except the pizza :) Hard to find what you want sometimes on an island with limited choices, but if you want sandwiches or ice cream and The Dalwhinnie is closed, this is your best bet!

We unintentionally ate at Daddy Franks for breakfast lunch and dinner in a resent trip to Beaver Island and don't regret it for a minute. The cheeseburgers are amazing, one of the best I've had. Breakfast sandwiches, pancakes and French toast are all on the menu in the morning and the ice cream and root beer floats are to die... More

This one was recommended by the people of Beaver Island Community Center. It is pretty close to the harbor, so close, we just walked to it. Staff was super friendly and the chef/owner often left the kitchen to check on the guests. He was so kind to approach our table to tell us that he woukd speed up our toddlers'... More

We stopped for dessert after dining at the Lodge. Great ice cream selections. Went back for breakfast the next morning and enjoyed great omelettes, an enormous breakfast burrito and some ridiculously delicious pork/bagel concoction that was to die for! Noticed they have extensive lunch options, but didn't get a chance to try it as well as fish baskets for dinner.... More

Girlfriend would consider herself a fry connoisseur so when she said these are the best I was curious what was waiting for me. She wasn't really exaggerating, while everyone has their own taste these are personally right up my alley. The food was all obviously made fresh and still hot. The burger wasn't super large but to upgrade to a... More

Nice family run business with great food and friendly service. Really enjoyed the home made chicken salad, potato salad and the cheeseburger (I got the Rowdy).

My hubby & I settled on Daddy Frank's for our evening meal as we had not yet checked out this tiny Beaver Island venue. Greeted warmly by a big smile from a very friendly gal, Layton....we ordered our meal. I enjoyed a most mouth-watering, fully loaded cheeseburger at Layton's passionately delivered recommendation while my hubby opted for the clam strip... More

I was looking for a decent late lunch and this place hit the mark. Had a grilled chicken wrap that was fixed to order.
