Contemporary American
Frank's is a classic neighborhood restaurant, with big city appeal. With a recognized reputation for memorable food and great service, the "Americana Revival" menu features locally sourced fruits and vegetables, along with fresh Gulf seafood. Try the chicken fried steak! It has been highlighted by multiple food critics as "the best" in the State of Texas. The highly acclaimed Fried Chicken and Maple Brined Pork Chop are just as good.

The steaks are all Certified Angus and come with generous sides on the same plate, and the salads are almost legendary.

Frank's is a place where you can meet your friends in the bar, dine there, or experience the full menu in the dining room.

Reservations are recommended but not required. Come see what Chef Colin Shine is creating.

    We were told this place had great Chicken Fried Steak and it's my hubby's fave so we went. The Chicken Fried Steak was good, needed more gravy but a solid good if you don't want double or triple beaded and fried. The baked potato was unnecessarily bad - like it was cooked in aluminum or microwaved so not a good skin. The crab cake salad - I was told the crab cake was 95% crab - at best it was 60% and very small for an entree cake. The salad part came out as just lettuce- retuned it so tomato and onion were added. Would pass on this dish. Cosmo's were mostly juice and we asked for less juice when we ordered and that was gnored. All in all, very nice owner but the food is not great. Maybe the Fried chicken was the way to go.

    The food was delicious from beginning to end. It wasn’t overly salted and all the dishes had great compliments of seasoning and flavors. The service was attentive from beginning to end. This is definitely a revisit on my list. Also if you go during December you can drive through the river oaks area very close by and see the Christmas lights in the residences. Easy to find and they also have takeout options if you choose not to dine in, great restaurant!

    The bean soup was wonderful; the Harvest Salad was not very good and not worth the price. The salad needs to be re-thought. For the price, the salad should have included some chicken.

    The food was excellent and the service was very good. But I over-tipped by $80. This is why. I did not know that a 20% gratuity would automatically added to my bill (we were six) so I added another 20% to my total bill, which already included to mandatory 20%. As it turned out, I tipped the server over $100, but didn’t mean to. Is there any way I can retrieve my $80 tip, in whole or in part?

    Ate with two friends on a Sunday Night. I'm from out of the area, although grew up a few blocks away from where Franks stands now. So I wanted to have some classic gulf seafood. I ordered the seafood gumbo and the fisherman's platter. One of my friends ordered fried green tomatoes, and the shrimp and grits. The other ordered the crab cake followed by the blackened catfish with okra and red beans and rice. Everything was excellent and one of my companions said they would be coming back again.
