The "Wanda's Waffles" breakfast was great- some of the best Belgian Waffles I've ever had. The waffles tasted really good had enough texture to handle the butter and syrup and still have a little bit of chewiness and slight crust on top, so they did not get soggy from the syrup. One waffle is really filling. The eggs, bacon, and... More

Frank's Place isn't five star dining, nor does it have to be. It's a treasure that has to be experienced! The staff is EXTREMELY friendly. The food is VERY good and named for various military items. Items all over the restaurant pay homage to the four services. Occasionally, a group of locals can be found "shooting the breeze" at the... More

Place has lots of military memorabilia, but seems like it could use a good deep cleaning. Food is okay, IF the waitress decides you are good enough to take your order. God forbid if a group of their "regulars" come in, because you WILL be ignored. I have tried multiple times to dine here, but have only been successful twice.... More

Quite an array of breakfast choices, many of which Navy Veterans will recognize! Frank's is a hang-out for older veterans, who are treated very well. We only had breakfast (twice), so cannot speak of the lunch offerings.

We like going to diners for breakfast and have had good experiences at many. Not Frank's Place. The main thing to point out is that the food is bad. Not just bad, really bad. I'm not sure how a restaurant can mess up breakfast, but our eggs (over easy and sunny side up) both came out almost raw (you know,... More

Right in Coachman Inn parking lot.. Veteran owned and operated. Family atmosphere and super friendly people. The inside is like a museum of information with pictures and stories. The prices are great and the food cant be beat.. A definate must when on island.

Burgers and Breakfast are their specialty. Old military ambience to the place. I ate here 40 years ago when it was called Skippers. Place hasn't changed much. Good place to rub elbows with the locals.

Loco Moco! Spam! It was like we were back on the Big Island. Frank is a wonderful host and the food is fantastic.

This place is owned by a veteran, which is why we have it a whirl. The reviews we've read weren't great but not terrible. It's a bit run down but I preferred the breakfast meal with rice, gravy and spam. It had a tomato slice on top, not sure it needed the slice of tomato, but I really enjoyed my... More
