This is my husband’s favorite sandwich bar none. It is huge and full of delicious ingredients. Turkey, sautéed onions and mushrooms, provolone, lettuce, tomato, banana peppers and mayo. Big enough to share but he rarely does. Soups are good and served with tasty corn bread....I tried the ribs for the first time. They can be ordered wet or dry. I opted for wet and they were some of the best ribs I’ve ever had. Served with coleslaw and fries. Yummy. I prefer the sweet potato fries but they have regular fries and spicy fries also. Full bar. Popular so plan for a wait to get in or order takeout.More

Truly a great small town bar. The burger, pulled pork sandwich and hand-cut fries were excellent. A generous pour in our cocktails. Staff was friendly and great service. Felt very comfortable as they adhere to Covid guidelines. Will definitely stop again when in the area.

Love it when a place sells good salads. The cobb is really good. Friendly service and a neat decor with a long bar. Definitely a stop if visiting Frankfort area.

Order online easy and efficient. Came to door and handed food to you at time they indicated. Food cod dinner and burger was good. However, Mac and Cheez was bland, noodles undercooked and tasted very weird.

Frankfort wouldn't be the same without Dinghy's. The restaurant is so welcoming, and you can't help but smile when you dine here.

Consistently great food with great service. Cozy, warm atmosphere. The bloody Mary was top notch, along with the homemade jalapeño poppers and in house smoked chicken wings

Stopped in here with a large group (10) and they had us seated in 5 minutes. We lucked out and found this place on a trip up north. Waitress was great and quick to get drinks to us. Took our orders and everything came out...hot, tasty, and to the right person. Their in-house smoked portion of the menu is really tasty. I went for the french dip and it was really good.More

Booked a room in Frankfort for a ski weekend at Crystal Mountain. We were very hungry pulling into town and Dinghy's had great ratings. We were not disappointed! The menu had something for everybody. My husband had a perch dinner and I had a sandwich....Both very good. Next time, it's BBQ!More

First time we ever ate at Dinghy`s, a friend recommended we go there. I ordered their famous ribs. When our food came, my french fries were good and hot. When I cut the full rack in half, it was cold to the touch in the...middle. My wife tried a bite of an end rib and said that it was warm to the bite but not hot out of the oven. We both realized Dinghy`s famous ribs are reheated quickly in the oven/broiler when you order them. We have a date night once a week which includes going out for dinner. Skip ahead a few months, second time at dinghy`s. We met some friends for Friday fish fry. ( My wife's fish was nice and hot, her french fries, COLD.....LOL Always exceptional staff.More

Was disappointed in the Fish Friday night special, Perch and Cod mix. Not good flavor or texture for the Perch. The Hamburger was just so-so for taste, for other guest. Massive quantity of sweet potato fries, somewhat greasy and overcooked. First time visitor so may...give one more try.More
