This was the first visit for our family members and it was great! Uncle wanted a good steak but he had a GREAT steak! He loved the clam chowder too! Not overloaded with potatoes but had plenty of clams!
Our meal was great! They want to go back again but with more family!

The atmosphere/vibe spoke steak house. We had our hopes set high but the steaks were not anything special. Overall, the food and experience were satisfactory.

Im a picky eater. I ordered the filet and it arrived exactly how I ordered it. I didn’t have to send it back for a change! The food was outstanding! If you go ask for Vicki she was our waitress and she was awesome as well. She knows her stuff! Will definitely go back

Food and service was excellent
Made reservations that morning and the table was ready when we got there.
Our waitress was excellent and my Frank's sizzling Sirloin was cook just the way I asked for. Definitely will go back.

Had a great birthday dinner. Sharon was an excellent server. Only disappointment was the Calamari - the breading kept falling off and it really didn't have much taste. Would not order again. Otherwise, everything was delicious.

A friend was moving out of state and decided to go to Frank’s since it’s a staple in Cambridge and he has lived there and never been! The food was great! Waitress was attentive and polite.

Frank's is by far the best value for the quality you're going to get. Perfectly cooked steaks, wonderfully seasoned sides & scrumptious apps. Cocktails poured perfectly, and desserts that are to die for. We need to put this in regular rotation in our travels.

My husband and I have been going to Frank's since the late 80's. Our youngest son attended Tufts University, and we would visit him once a month and take him to dinner at Frank's. Well, we liked it so much that we just keep going back.

Frank's Steak House provided a lovely corner table for our party of six. The drinks, appetizers, and salad were delicious. Our server did not rush us so we had plenty of time to chat. Our dinners were all delicious. The steaks were flavored and cooked to perfection. We had a great time at Frank's! Thank you!

Shrimp cocktail quality wasn't like before. The petite filet mignon for $24 was a joke. come on it was 2 oz with on top of two slices of baguette to make it look bigger. The mashed potatoes certainly helped my starvation.
The server seem to be very grumpy because he had a long day. Did not crack pepper for us just left that cracker on our table. Did not refill our waters, no smile, monotone.

The steak is constantly super good!!

I have stopped using salt so it is a little salty for me, my fault I forgot to ask for no salt.

This music maybe a little loud.

But overall my favorite place ever!!!!

I think Frank's needs more time to get back to what it was in terms of the food. Service was very slow out of the kitchen. But you can't go wrong with Frank's, in any case.
