Got to the restaurant and it was no longer! It’s some other restaurant now! Frankie’s is gone!
This restaurant has changed to a different place. Please update the listing.
The place is no longer Frankie’s. It’s now a sushi restaurant. Very disappointed to have shown up to the restaurant to find its not what we wanted.
Food is very good. Service is OK. Value is above average. Overall we liked it and will go back. The happy hour specials look good.
Clam Chowder ..... If you like Clam Chowder, you will love it here. It's simply the best. All the food was good and service was top notch. I recommend it!
Have been here many times with my husband, this time we brought another couple. They loved it too. This is our go to place at International Plaza!
Super casual spot. Really didn't even need a reservation. For the price, the food did not meet expectations.
We found it a little pricey with a limited entre menu. Our appetizer of Steamers (Steamed Clams) contained 2 clams that were not opened. It’s common knowledge that any clam not opened after cooking is not a good clam. Apparently the waitress never heard of this and the kitchen was too busy to exchange the two. There was no adjustment on the final bill. The rest of our experience was good, but we would probably not go back.
Great service! Food came out fast and tasted great! Would def go again! Also they kids loved it!
The lobster rolls were good as we the sides. The portions were just a little small for the cost. But otherwise I would definitely recommend. Everything was fresh and the bisque was great. Too bad it rained so we couldn’t sit on the patio. Next time!
First time in and I don't forsee going back. No issue with the reservation or the table, but the service lacked in every way. The server never introduced himself, did not make any attempt to offer any suggestions, nor was he attentive in any way. We waited over half an hour for our check alone! Never was offered a refill, only one person was offered. No check up to see how the food was. Just nothing! The food was good, at best, and maybe a little over priced. Since when is New England Clam Chowder brown??? It was ok, had a nice bite, but, it was brown!!! Chowder is supposed to be white! Overall, the staff there just seemed more interested in their phones and each other. Even watching the line...open kitchen, the cooks were on their phones and their were just as many staff members there as customers. Labor Cost??? The best part of the meal was our oysters...and those are raw and hard to screw up...so!!! I can get oysters a lot closer to my place and cheaper, so I don't think we will be going back anytime soon. Fix the service...make guests, and I mean guests, feel welcomed and taken care of, it will be rewarded!
Not bad. Something different
I made a reservation and when we arrived, they went above and beyond to accommodate us as we came in with two younger children three and four years old and they made sure we got the booth we wanted and brought out the coloring book as well. The food was really good and the prices are good as well! We both had a bowl of lobster bisque and I did the Half dozen of raw oyster‘s and we also tried that artichoke dip ...it was fantastic and surprised that they had nice selection for the kids. Sushi was good too!
Our service was awesome. The lobster roll is to dye for. :) Thank you.
The food is super over priced for the amount you get. My sons both got burgers, one a kids meal and the other ordered the Frankie's 3 Blended Burger, that was smaller then a Whopper, when the brought out the plates you couldn't even tell the difference between the kids meal and adult meal. The 3 blend burger was dry and we paid $15 for kettle chips and the burger. There Lobster Mac & Cheese was amazing, but you barely got a cup of food, there was barely any lobster in it and they charge $22 for basically a side item portion. The shrimp scampi was bland, no favor.We waited an hour after ordering food to get it. They didn't give us napkins or utensils. I order a drink from the bar and it had a bug in it. There were bugs all around the table and the wall behind us. Super dissatisfied and disappointed. Will never go there again.
The food was very good, however I had to wait for a few refills. Everything else was great. We sat in a section where the air conditioning was on us.
This was our first visit and we were so happy we did. We can't wait to go back again.
Restaurant had difficulty seating us for our reservations. We did not get seated until 30 min after our reservation. Bartender ended up taking care of us after the initial server couldn’t figure out how to seat us or wait on us. Ridiculous. Not a fan of this restaurant!!!!!
Best sushi, crab cake and lobster Mac and cheese ever. Anishah’s service was outstanding. Highly recommend.
Would not recommend at all
Too expensive .. food ok .. fries amazing .. had better sea food ...cool spot ...
The food was HORRIBLE not worth what I paid I took home lobster bisque and had to add lobster myself smh and seasoning.
Lobster rolls are delicious!
The pan-seared grouper was excellent
