About Frank's Americana Revival

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.

The food fell short of expectations although the service was excellent. The gumbo left an undesirable chalky coating in my mouth which was a shame because the seafood was good. The redfish special was a disappointment also. The fish had too much gray matter left after the skin was removed. No one wants to see or eat gray matter.

The last two times at Franks have been great! The menu has been updated and the wine list, but the servers seem friendlier and more attentive which makes a big difference. Excellent food—gourmet seafood, comfort food as well as special night out offerings. Lovely evening—thank you Franks!

We had a fabulous, first-time dinner at Frank's on a Friday night. The food and service were excellent, with gluten-free options for one in our party. The sommelier was refreshingly casual and informative, selecting two bottles to choose from, based on what we told him about our tastes. We ended up drinking both (and they were surprisingly affordable)! The smoked spare ribs and BBQ shrimp were delicious starters, and all four in our party enjoyed our entrees. My husband's chicken-fried steak was excellent, and my seared gulf drum with caramelized sweet potatoes, avocado, and crab was tasty as well, although a sauce with it would make it even better. The interior is beautiful with a nice vibe, yet quiet enough that we could enjoy our conversation. We will definitely be back!

Everything about this restaurant is first class. Burke at the bar is sociable and mixes a top shelf cocktail. The food is outstanding, home smoked salmon, oyster salad, fried chicken to name a few. It is all good. Most of the waiters are long serving thorough professionals. Miguel in particular is at the top of his game. The owner Chris will ensure all is well and if you need assistance will recommend superb wine pairings at reasonable pricing.

First time visit. The waitstaff was extremely friendly and made you feel welcome and at home. The food was beyond good, I had to chopped steak which I must say was the best I have ever had paired with the Mac Allen 18. This little gem has been in my sights for a long time, definitely worth a visit if you are in the mood for great food and great service.
