Diner Reviews
  • "Frank's food is consistently good at a fair price. It's not gourmet but rather old fashioned comfort food. If you're in the mood for that, this is the place for you."

  • "Food and service were exceptional. The only complaint is that some of the dishware was cracked and shouldn't have been used."

  • "Saw owner on TV, Phantom Gourmet. I have been looking for a great place for Prime Rib with a good a jus. I have not found one as good as King Arthurs Court in Miami Springs, FL, in the late 60's and early 70's. Franks Steak house with the a jus was very close to the best, but the meat itself could of been more tender, that being said the overall dish was very good and the dinner price was excellent. Even though it was a 1 1/2 hour drive from West Springfield, I would do it again."

  • "very nice restaurant, the staff is very good and friendly. we ordered the rib eye stakes, mine rare and my guest was medium rare, with bake potato and butternut squash. my guest stake was rare and the bake potato for both of us were over cooked and seemed to have been kept in a warming pan. the butternut squash was overwhelmed by nutmeg. The waitresses, was spot on not giving up on make the dining experience a good thing. It is Franks policy to not have bad meal... they took off one stake and comp-ted a glass of wine. For us it was not a good nite in the kitchen. Ps why do stake houses use those serrated knives that saw the meat in stead of cutting the meat????"

  • "This place has great food at very reasonable prices. Nice crisp salads, great steaks and chops, with excellent fish and some Italian choices. Also, the bar pours a very good drink. If I lived closer, I'd be here all the time."

  • "This is not our first time at Frank's. It is a good place for good food with a lot of locals. It has it has it good days and not so goo days. This was not the best of days. The service was bit slow for us. Maybe because it was the day before father's day or that a bus tour had just left i dunno. We waited quite a bit in-between the appetizers and the main course to the point it was noticeable to all at the table. The food is very good and simple and classic and traditional. We will still wind up going back because the food is good."

  • "We dined with family, which was long overdue. Everyone found something of interest on the menu; the service was most attentive, but not intrusive. This was the 2 nd time we dined here as a group, and would recommend it to anyone who wants great service, good food, and a pleasant surrounding."

  • "thought the restaurant was extremely clean, the waitress couldn't of been anymore helpful.. they had a computer issue in the kitchen but if the waitress didn't explain it to us we would never of know. Been there several times always had a wonderful meal, I brought two new people and they also loved their meal"

  • "We hadn't been to Frank's since we moved out of Cambridge 20 years ago, but it was a favorite back then when we wanted a good old fashioned steak dinner. Now, between Grill 23, Morton's, Flemings, etc. a decent steak is a significant investment. However, it's refreshing to know that Frank's does what it does about as well as you could ask. Nothing pretentious. Just good food, well prepared in a warm family-friendly not-too-fancy atmosphere. This isn't the place to find rosemary infused truffle oiled beurre on your grilled skirt steak. But if you want a nice 9oz NY Strip perfectly grilled to medium rare, you've found the spot."

  • "Frank's is a long-time neighborhood staple for those interested in getting a good meal for decent prices. Appetizer sampler was good. Prime rib was tasty and cooked correctly, however, was a bit fatty and had some gristle on it. Kids liked their mac&cheese meals and rest of family enjoyed their steaks. Overall, it's a good place to take large groups for gatherings as service and food is good without breaking the bank."

  • "Am in my 70s and i have lived near Frank's all my life. When I was a teenager my parents started going out for New year's eve and where did they go? Frank's of course! I was an adult before i had a meal there. As a group we went there after my mother's wake across the street. It has always been a place to go for good comfort food no matter where we spend our vacations/winters/summers, we are eager to go back to Frank's. My husband loves the chicken supreme and I am the meat eater. Saturday night we shared the 15 oz rib eye which was delicious and cooked to perfection! what more can i say? It's always like going home!"

  • "Filet mignon with mushrooms was excellent! Mozzerella sticks were very good, but the french fries were a bit bland, could have used some salt. Very nice dinner. Great value."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "My mother ordered prime rib well done and received an end cut that was generous and perfectly cooked. My prime rib ordered as rare as available was tender and delicious. However, the bake potato skins were burnt but the Russet potato flesh were tasty. Otherwise, I would give 5 stars to the food! The clam chowder was thick and flavorful. The strawberry sundae is great as always.. "

  • "Excellent steaks, reasonably priced! They were very willing to prepare things to order(for example substituting sides with sautéed mushrooms and onions) which was not on the menu. Would love to see more glueten free options offered. Overall, a great experience for a large family get together! Parking was very much appreciated as well."
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "Our waiter was charming, well-informed and efficient. Menu options and prices were appealing. The cooked vegetable of the day, squash, was nicely prepared and generously served. The petite filet mignon, however, was tough; not tender at all. This was in spite of its being medium-rare. In fact, it was the only tough filet mignon I've ever been served at any restaurant, at any time. Because of the quality of that steak, I would not choose to go back."

  • "For over 40 years, I have heard about this place but until I had theatre tix to a show in Arlington, I had never been there before. It was good food and they let me bring my own bottle of wine for a corking fee, outstanding! I did communicate it was my honey's birthday and they never delivered a candle, but that's ok. We wanted to low key I. I won't wait another 40 years to return."

  • "Had a great meal at Frank's. Plenty of food and good for the money. Very kind waitstaff. We were worried that the restaurant being around for such a long time, that everything would be out of date and stuffy but that was not the case at all. "

  • "I have not been to Frank's in over a year but always remembered they have amazing food. We had the petite filet mignons, they were cooked perfect. The mushrooms we go on the side were deliciousl Only thing upsetting was the bland onion soup we got to start our meal, first time ever I just got onions and broth when ordering onion soup no cheese or bread or croutons to make it heart. That was the only thing disappointing = everything else was delicious!!!!"
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "I love the steaks at Frank's. I ordered the rib eye and it was excellent. The bread was good, too. The mixed drink I ordered was too strong, and the teeny, dried-out lime slice did nothing to help. I asked for more limes and was given two more teeny, dried-out slices. With my steak I ordered onion soup, not realizing it was plain onion soup, not French onion, and Lyonnaise potatoes, which were served luke-warm and quite salty. Disappointing. I wouldn't rush back. I have a Longhorn Steak House much closer to my home, and their side dishes are excellent."

  • "Frank's doesn't pull any punches. They serve large portions of good steaks at a reasonable price. It's definitely an old school type hangout for a certain type of Bostonian, but I would recommend going back. The steaks are good and the service was very good."

  • "Hello, I came to dine with a party of four for my mom's birthday at noon on Sunday, March 16. We were greeted promptly by a very nice hostess. Unfortunately, my shepard's pie had a hair in it, and i had to alert the server, who couldn't have been more gracious and apologetic. She sent the owner over who was exceedingly nice and professional, comped my meal, our drinks and offered complimentary dessert. I was VERY impressed and felt valued as a customer. Because of the way we were treated, even with the unpleasantness of finding the hair, i would come back and dine again. Customer service is SO important and you provided that! Also, the food was very delicious. Sincerely, Gail Stankiewicz"

  • "Had not been to Frank's in some time, the last was when they were going through renovations and we had a very disappointing meal. Happy to say our recent experience was a ok; our meals were fine and service friendly, though our waiter had to come back and take our order again. Love booths, makes conversations so much easier!"
