We tried Frank & Clara's again, first time we wanted takeout and they told us it would be a 45 minute wait, so we did not order a takeout went somewhere else. Second time we ordered a takeout around 7:30 pm, it took 10 minutes....More

We've been coming to this place for years and loved its consistency as a great traditional seafood place on EI. Only learned it was under new management when we came back in 2016. Always have to give new owners the benefit of the doubt but...More

Party of 8 with reservation, seated immediately. Local fresh seafood and beverages were superb. Fun atmosphere and corn hole boards outside.
