Just what we hoped for - great steak & burger, good sides, very reasonable wines and friendly service. Not overly fancy or gourmet - just straightforward, good food.

I have always had a good meal at Frank’s. Their steak can compare with a high end steakhouse. Great value for the money!

It was alright, my filet came raw. I sent it back and they cooked it more thoroughly but at that point the filet lost a lot of its flavor. I’m sure if they cooked it right the first time it would’ve been delicious. The desert was the highlight for me as the cheesecake was really good!

I had the Sizzler. It was excellent. My wife said that her Prime Rib was one of the best she had ever eaten. High quality meals without the typical steakhouse sticker shock. Only negative was the waiter. Though he had written down our drink orders, he had to come back to ask us again what we wanted. He brought our meals to another table. I asked for butter for my baked potato but it didn’t show up for 30 minutes after we asked twice. Brought someone else’s drinks to our table and spilled them. A for enthusiasm, D for execution. We’ll definitely go back, I just hope we get a different waiter.

Classic old-style family steak house with great portions and amazing prices. Friendly service. Steak dinner for 2 with salads, sides AND a bottle of wine for $100. The best kept secret in Cambridge!

I’ve always had great food and fun at this place. I haven’t been there in over 3 years. Both my friend and I ordered surf and turf with prime ribs and pan-seared scallops. The scallops were fried in a sorry batter and fried or baked and didn’t taste the least bit fresh. The prime rib came very rare, very fatty, and very chewy. They had run out of ginger beer so my friend couldn’t get what he likes to drink. We both had the response to the horrible food.

On only our second restaurant meal since March 2020, my husband and I decided to visit Franks. We had the petite filets which were DELICIOUS, the sides and cocktails were excellent. The strawberry shortcake is the yummy old fashioned kind with the biscuit and sweet strawberries. Excellent service, and attention to mask wearing while not eating and proper spacing of tables. We really enjoyed it!

Well ..... Franks Steak House IS NOT the Capital Grill .... BUT it never claimed to be! Franks is simply a local Cambridge, Ma. steak house restaurant staple that offers outstanding value for it's price point. We found the food to be delicious and the service excellent! The waitstaff was super attentive and treated us as old friends. The atmosphere was clubby, warm and inviting. We hadn't been to Franks in quite a while. What a mistake! We're going back ..... OFTEN!

Our first time at Frank's was a delightful surprise! All staff were very pleasant and we never felt rushed. The calamari and potato skin appetizers were both cooked perfectly. The skins were actually the best we ever had. All of our steaks were cooked as we requested. The decor is a little dated.
This is more than made up for with the great food and serviice.
