The Sizzler never disappoints! And the service was, as always, warm and friendly. We grew up in the neighborhood and Frank's was our first "special date night" restaurant. So glad to see them back up and running after a hard year for all of us. It felt great to be "home" again at Frank's.

It was ok. Looking to have prime rib, they let us know after taking our order that they were out of it at 7:15. Came back and had to retake our order and had the tomahawk rib. Was ok but nothing to write home about.

Franks, is an amazing historic restaurant, which i would call Italian style. The ambiance is great (old school). The food was excellent as usual. The waitstaff was very professional, efficient and friendly. I asked for an ice tea and the waiter recommended another drink because the machine may make it not up to par for this meal. I would go back again anytime. It is a very popular restaurant, so you need to make a reservation early. I made a reservation the night before, didn't get the exact time i wanted, but got a table for 7:30pm. Next time i am making a reservation a week in advance to get my exact time! But worth the wait.

Our dinner was absolutely delicious. The steaks came exactly as ordered. Portions were plentiful. Though I would recommend getting extra sides as one served two people modestly.
As for dessert, definitely get the Sundae. It’s really delicious
Prices were fantastic. You can easily see why Frank’s is still around and packed after all these years.

Great steaks for the price. A bit over cooked so it’s better to order a little rarer than intended I think. Sides are decent and services was great. Very quiet and good ambiance

Everyone in our group was happy with their selection especially my husband and son they split the Tomahawk and could even finish it they said it was outstanding flavor. I had the "sizzler" which was also amazing.

We have been dining at Frank's for years. Great steaks, always cooked the way you like them. Plenty of sides to choose from. Helpful and friendly staff and my husband says they make the best Martini around! I highly recommend it.

Well that was disappointing. Entering argument, you only get one chance at a first impression and this place blew it!
I was looking for a good steak and everything pointed toward Frank’s. I made a reservation for 3 at 8:15pm. We arrived and were told there were 3 parties ahead of us (after the hostess insulted me by confusing me with the guy standing 3 feet to my right who is significantly older, heavier set and was dressed for a trip to 7-11 not dinner in public) and finally got seated after 8:30.
While waiting to be seated several large groups piled into the lobby and the hostess (the same one who called me old, fat and poorly dressed) didn’t do anything about it, nor did the manager. It was about as crowded as I’ve ever seen a lobby, like we don’t have a pandemic.
Long story short, I’ve had better prime rib at every other place I’ve had prime rib. Save yourself the time and go to one of those big chain restaurants.
The mashed potatoes were bland but at least smoothly mashed.
The green beans were easily the only good part of my meal.
Martini-bartender needs to go back to bar tending school.
My fiancé had a burger. Apparently that was really good. So if you go here, just consider it a burger joint and ignore the rest of the menu.

I’m giving it two stars because the waiter was attentive and made sure we at least always had something to drink. We won’t be back thanks to the hostess and the chef. I don’t recommend you waste your time either.

Went here for the first time for my birthday. We had a reservation and the hostess mistakenly sat some people that came in after us but immediately apologized when she realized what she did. We got sat within 5 minutes after that. The interior was very dark and dated and I was nervous about how the experience was going to be. Our waitress was very nice and accommodating and busted her butt amongst all her tables. The food ended up being an unexpected amazing surprise. The appetizer was great. The food was delicious and cooked perfect. I wish I had left room for dessert.

To start off the guy who seated us didn’t seem to friendly. Maybe he was having a bad day. We ordered potato skins for appetizers and they were burnt. Sent them back and got better ones. The mac and cheese was very average. Nothing special. My steak the sizzler was ok. Won’t be back. Was really looking forward to going but oh well.

I found this place on Facebook so we gave it a try. Made a reservation for 5:30 for 2 people and got there and we decided to change it to 7:00 for 4 the gentleman was very accommodating. All four of us really enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent. We most certainly will be back.

In my opinion, Frank’s is the best steakhouse around. Beautiful atmosphere, great waitstaff and unbelievably delicious food. The Ravanis family are all wonderful and we look forward dining at Frank’s whenever we want an outstanding piece of big beef. Keep up the great work Frank’s!

First time at Frank's. Resteraunt was clean and followed required Covid protocols. Made reservations and wait was minimal. Service was great and the food was delicious. Enjoyed the Tomahawk steak, filets and steak tips. We will definitely be going back with family and friends.

Frank's is never a disappointment. Took a friend from out of town for the 1st time. He loved and mentioned he wished he had an "old school" Steakhouse near him. The food is high quality and 1/2 the price of the Boston Steakhouses. The service is always friendly.
