Had we not been intentionally looking for Frank's we probably wouldn't have found it. It is definitely popular with the locals and we can understand why. We both enjoyed the seafood platter and found the prices to be quite reasonable. Service was friendly and efficient.

We went here as a suggestion from our hotel. In the past we had passed by the restaurant many times but never knew it was a restaurant, just thought it was a bar. There isn't a sign to indicate that it is a restaurant. I guess the locals are their targeted patrons so the rest of us don't need to... More

Franks has been around for a long time. The food is always good and the beer is cold. A great place for happy hour or lunch or dinner.

No fair, Franks! You have so many tempting choices on the menu--seafood platter (fried or broiled), steak sandwich, turkey club, steamed clams. On Friday my wife and I were all set to order the seafood dinners, when we were told about one of the specials--two crab cakes and an 8 oz. sirloin. Once again, we made no headway on working...

My boyfriend and I stopped here on our way back from Montreal to Buffalo. We got shrimp cocktail, chicken wings, chicken fingers with fries, and broiled haddock with a salad, mashed potatoes with gravy. Everything tasted great and service was good!

Went with Family. Great dining experience especially when dining with picky eaters. Steak was done to order and lobster was very good too. Everyone else was pleased with their meals too. Will definitely go again!

Simple road house kind of place with way above average food. The menu is similar to many family owned restaurants but the plating and food quality impresses. The service was prompt and friendly even on a busy night.

This is a great local area, family owned restaurant. Locally know for their daily specials and fish. My husband and I go in for lunch on busy Saturdays for their fish; or evening for their daily specials. I especially enjoy their soups and chicken & dumplings on a cold winter day. All their dishes are great...but I do enjoy their... More

Reservations, seated within minutes. Very busy night, waitress took about 10 minutes to start our order & was flustered/ overwhelmed, but friendly. Restaurant ran our of silverware? Food was good, plentiful portions.

I have eaten at "Frank's" many times. I think the best part is the easy location. It is right off 81 and in the heart of Cicero. The food is good, I think the prices are little high. The locals definitely like it. It is great place to catch a game or have a few drinks. If you go, the... More
