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.

It took 45 minutes for the appetizer to come to us. The waiter did not inform us of any delays. He was rude. We will not be back

What a great restaurant. We had Mother’s Day Brunch. A very pleasant experience all the way around. We started our brunch with pineapple mimosas, deviled eggs and pimento toast. All very tasty. The service was perfect. The servers were courteous and had great timing throughout our brunch. Very nice. Definitely will go back to visit when we are in Houston.

First of all, two out of three of our entrees were delicious. The third was sub par and more than half was left on the plate. Sadly, I must report that this was not the dining ‘experience’ that we have previously enjoyed at this restaurant. It was evident that our waiter was over extended. He was trying to handle many tables and the lack of personal attention was evident. This was also a birthday gathering which was noted at the time of the reservation. No mention of the event was noted. The waiter was rushed, abrupt and seemed overwhelmed. We suggest that the restaurant re-access the waitstaff/patron ratio so that all those dining receive the attention and service expected. We will not return.

Attractive place with good food. My main complaint is that the wine list is overpriced relative to other restaurants. Many wines priced at three times retail.

We had such an enjoyable experience. We hit it off with Ivan, who is a manager but waited on us "just because". The food was great -- my favorite was the onion rings that w had for an appetizer! they were amazing! The menu has a great variety. We'll be back soon.

I'm a foodie, and a picky eater. The food is excellent, perfectly done in every way. It was so good, we picked up a to-go order the next day, and brought it home. Everything was packaged well, and tasted just as good. Reliable, consistent, dependable. This is a winner.

We were celebrating a family
Visit so we wanted to be a Le to talk. We had a private dining room.
The food was delicious-as always. The service was superb- as always.
We travel about an hour to get there, and it is well worth the effort .
I can’t say enough positive things about Frank’s American Revival!’

We had a cocktail at the bar before dinner, good drink and friendly bartender. Our server Justin was very good. We started with fried, green tomatoes which were crispy with a light coating. My husband had the Sunday Prime Rib which had great flavor, and I had a cesar with fried oysters. All food was good and flavorful.

Fantastic experience! Everything was exceptional including the food, server, manager and valet. We also appreciated the emphasis on protecting the diners and servers which they will continue even after the state liberalizes mask and occupancy restrictions later this week. This restaurant deserves our continued support during these difficult times. Highly recommend!

Frank's was a welcomed dinner out after the freezing temperatures and loss of water during this past week! They had even boiled their water and had bought ice in bags!
But it is the excellent fried chicken, biscuits and stewed okra with tomatoes that I love. Our waiter, Jacob, was exceptionally talented; he was attentive, without being intrusive and got our orders just right. Another enjoyable evening at Frank's!
