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.

To start off… our sprites came out as soda water, the wine was rancid.
The bruschetta and mozzarella appetizers were fine the calamari Sicilian was very soggy
Tomahawk ribeye and another ribeye was ordered medium they both came out rare. Had to be sent back Green beans and baked potato were cold no butter was served with a baked potato I had to request butter- had to ask for coffee serval times.
Desserts were delicious.
it was not busy in there so there is really no excuse. All in all not a great experience.

We all ordered steaks, which were served hot, cooked as we requested, and were tender and delicious.
Prices have gone up, my “Sirlioin Sizzler” was $34. Petite Fillets were $23, that price seemed ok. Drink prices also seemed ok, $9-$11 for liquor.
We ordered the Calamari appetizer, serving size was definitely smaller than I’ve ever seem.
We had to ask for bread, didn’t realize it was even available until we saw another table got served bread. (this was after we had eaten the Calamari and wanted something more while waiting for or meals)
To be fair, all restaurants seem to be more expensive compared to just a few months ago.
Overall, a good meal, will go back some time, but nothing really special. It used to be better.

We went to Boston for the w’end & booked Frank’s for my family - 2 adults & 3 kids. Seemed chaotic when we arrived, everybody was waiting to be seated as we ALL had a 7pm reservation! Got seated, waiter immediately seemed distracted/uninterested. Ordered our food straight away as we’d had a long day & everybody was hungry. My husband ordered the seafood platter IF they had cocktail sauce. The waiter was unsure and rather than come back, we said if they had no cocktail sauce, to bring the French onion soup as his appetizer. We all went on to order steaks & chicken. Our appetizers arrived and ny husband got a soup ( no sauce obviously) and his side salad for his steak entree. Then three steaks, chicken parm and a seafood platter arrived!? No steak for my husband. The waiter had totally messed up the order. We asked was there another steak coming and he said no, with a definite attitude at this stage. Eventually he came back to apologize & said he had a steak coming. He kindly did not charge us for the steak or the seafood platter which was unnecessary but definitely took the damper out of the issue. The food was good. The place was absolutely packed so it’s definitely a popular destination!

We are long-time customers (since 1962) of Frank's Steak House, and we eat there almost every Sunday. There is never a disappointment. Food is good. Staff is friendly. Restaurant is clean and comfortable. We will return often.

First time there. Service was great and especially the food. We particularly liked that our meal came with sides where a lot of places don't have that. We are going to make this a tradition and come again.

My wife and I were celebrating our nuptials. The service was very good, unfortunately we came at a time that they were closing so I think that if we come back at a different time, we will be able to enjoy it more. The food was very good and as I stated, the service was great.

My daughter was visiting from out of state and had a craving for steak. With the great reviews on Open Table we decided to try this restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the professional service. My daughter ‘s filet mignon was cooked perfectly to order and the mashed potatoes were fluffy and fresh. My steak tips were juicy and tender, and the portions are very generous. We both enjoyed crisp garden salads and shared a slice of chocolate cake. An excellent meal that provided a relaxing opportunity to visit with my daughter. Thank you to the chef and staff!

I used to work in this area back in the 80’s and 90’s and the food was always out standing! When I left this area, I would go back from time to time for a great meal and here it is 2021 and it is still outstanding. They take pride in their food and their waitresses have always given great service of the years.

I randomly mentioned to the waitress that I used to get the London broil years ago and was disappointed it was no longer on the menu. She quickly informed me that they still have that, but it just wasn’t on the menu. Of course I ordered the London broil and it is the BEST I have ever had even until this day!

Hats off to Frank’s Steak House for taking the pride in their restaurant and keeping it going since the children took over from there dad!

Bring back the entertainment! Another great feature they had!

We arrived early and sat at the bar for a drink as we waited for our friends. The staff was professional and engaging and made us feel like we were one of the "regulars"! Wonderful neighborhood feel. Food was excellent! We will be back and will recommend to our family and friends! Don't change your strategy!
