I can't resist a place with a martini glass in its signage, and usually I'm disappointed. Not this time. Frankie's menu, food, and service were better than expected for an old resort town where standards are often low. We avoided the high end of the menu and went for the steak sandwich and the tuna tacos. Everyone was happy. Good value too. I would definitely return,.

Our family has dined at Frankie's twice in July and really enjoyed it on both occasions. They have a great special on Wednesday nights of a lobster dinner for $25, plus between 5 and 7 PM, with the purchase of one meal, the second is half off. Where else can you get a good salad, a large steamed lobster, rice, and asparagus for two dinners for $37.50? We thought the meals were really good, and recommend Frankie's both as a very good dining choice, and as a very good value. We did have to talk to the waitress on the last visit about our bill as children's meals were supposed to be free with the purchase of an adult meal, yet we were charged for them. She quickly adjusted the bill, and we certainly will be back again.

Frankie's deserves better rating! The worst that can be said about it is that their service can be uneven. Being in a small resort area, sometimes there are very few diners and sometimes every table is taken. However, we enjoy dining there quite a few times every summer and have not had an unsatisfactory experience yet. Their prime rib, rack of lamb, chicken piccata, seafood are superb (they do change the type of fish once in a while). No other restaurant, including the overpriced one in Union Pier, has a better dish than their halibut (this summer whitefish) with almond crust in vanilla sauce. And how come your site gives top rating to a hot dog/hamburger place?

8 adults and 3 children had a variety of different options from the menu. Everyone loved their choices. Atmosphere was upscale. Service was good. Slight variation between online menu and actual menu.
