Service was great. The gravy from poutine brought back childhood memories from an old school diner I went to as a kid so that was pretty cool.

Good sized portions of well made food - definitely favourites and home style rather than cutting edge cuisine. Which is exactly as advertised.

The only down side we had was that the Key Lime pie was a little lacking in lime - probably not the best in town, but we haven't quite worked out where the best is in town though.

A fun time was had by all for a birthday party! Enjoyed seeing at another table a gramma and grandpa treating four teenage grandchildren to dinner (no mom or dad to confuse things).

I always enjoy meals at Frankies. The service is friendly and efficient. Dessert selection was disappointing. I wanted a small bowl of vanilla ice cream- possibly with either fresh fruit, homemade fruit sauce or a drizzle of chocolate.

Frankie's Modern Diner is always good. It's nearby and it's our go-to place when we want a lunch or supper. I use a rollator or power wheelchair and staff are accommodating and friendly. It's a great place for family and friends and groups. Accessible washroom. Wheelchair access from Broughton Street.

This is our family-friendly go-to, but doesn’t compromise the foodie in me. Kids homemade chicken tenders are wonderful, as is the spaghetti. I enjoyed the halibut burger and typically get the curry penne and brussel sprouts.

Amazing west coast Benedict- some of the best salmon I’ve had in a breakfast Benny. Coffee was meh, but what you’d expect from a diner coffee.
I’d go back for the Benny alone.
Also excellent service- never wanted for anything, they were on top of it

We were happy with our entire experience. The pizzas were good. My son really enjoyed the fish and chips and thought the iced tea was the best he ever had. Service was great. Very attentive server. So many choices. Would definitely go back.

We went for my 65th birthday. My husband loved his meal. Chicken burger with lots of fries (he loves fries) and your wonderful home made tomato soup.

I tried the seafood linguini. . A lovely piece of salmon on top but only one or two prawns. Also the mussels in the shells (nice presentation) were so teeny they didn’t really have any taste. My biggest complaint though is there was a lot of pasta noodles which was very dry snd I needed to salt and pepper which I usually don’t do. There was no sauce to dip the bread in. I don’t think it was worth the money and tossed out most of the noodles I took home.

I have been to Frankies multiple time and will continue to do so but have to say I was very disappointed with my birthday meal. I should have gone with the ribs. 😊.

I have had both before snd enjoyed it.

The service was very good though. Quick snd friendly.

Thank you for letting me voice my opinion.

food was not fresh, seafood linguine was lacking seafood, lamp dip had a weird smell to it and the burger had the same funky smell as the lamb.

The only thing I suggest is to write on your menu the chickpea burger is deep fried. I ordered it thinking it was something healthy to eat. I ate just half and brought the rest home to my my husband. But everything else was good. Our server was amazing!!! Thank you.
