Really enjoyed our meal there. It was a large group and they treated us great, service was excellent and the value for the price was very good. It is an old school place and we really had a great time!

Always a great place, make sure to make a reservation and also if youre getting the prime rib ask for them to cook it a little longer than you usually like it because it always comes out at least one measure more raw

First time visitor from out of state. Ambiance was a little dated but hearkens back to "old school" steakhouses of the past. Service was very good and unobtrusive. Not used to seeing so many male waitstaff but all were smartly dressed in white shirts, ties, black pants, and aprons.

Food was an excellent value and prepared exactly as requested. 3 different types of steak and one burger ordered with different degrees of "doneness" were spot-on. Soups, sides, and accompaniments were also very presentable and tasty.

Overall, our first visit was a great first impression by one of Cambridge's landmark restaurants. Frank's will definitely remain on our "go to" list when were back in the area visiting friends.

Excellent food and great family ambience. Highly recommend the surf & turf including the filet mignon and shrimp scampi. Their house wine was really good too, and at a great price.

I love Frank's. The food has never disappointed, service has always been good, this is a neighborhood gem. You can spend a lot more money in some places and not get the same level of food and service.

Haven’t had a steak this good in years. And you MUST try Franks bruschetta . It’s amazing. Plus if you go for the early bird special you get a really good meal at a very reasonable price.
And to go along with all the great food you get outstanding service.
Trevor was one of the best waiters we’ve ever had and we eat out a lot. Thanks Franks Steakhouse!!!!

Our entrees were good but my husband and I had onion soup that was barely warm and the cheese on top was barely melted.
My daughter’s house salad had several veggies that were much to thick cut.

Frank’s Steakhouse is a constant in my life for a night out or special occasions. The food and service are great and it has a very homey warm feel. The menu selection is vast and you can go there and have a great meal even if you aren’t a meat eater. There’s something for everyone. The Manager, Rocco, keeps everything running smoothly even on the busiest weekend nights. I would highly recommend Frank’s for a night out.
