About Frank's Americana Revival
Frank's is a classic neighborhood restaurant, with big city appeal.

Frank's Americana Revival Ratings and Reviews
You can always count on Franks for great service and delicious food.
We had a friend in from out of town and Frank's proved to the be the perfect location. We could hear each other and were able to catch up. Our table had the gulf coast seafood platter, the chicken fried steak and the beef short ribs. Everyone loved their dishes and finished the whole plate! We are already planning to get a group together in February for dinner at Frank's.
I can't believe this place has been around the corner from me for 6 years and I haven't heard about it. Maybe River Oaks residents are trying to keep it all to themselves. Excellent food and outstanding service. Finally found a restaurant that carries the fabulous wines from the Guadalupe Region in Baja Mexico. The owner came by our table and talked with us a while and made us feel very welcome. I am hoping that the ice-
storm stops tonight so I can make my birthday reservations for tonight. I am craving their fried green tomatoes with shrimp remoulade sauce!
Frank's is a great place for a business lunch and an evening meal. The food is always fantastic. The fish is never over-cooked and the shrimp and grits are some of the best in Houston. The salads are always great, especially April's salad. The service is always top notch and one of the best things is we can always hear each other speak. Most restaurants in Houston are so loud, you can't hear conversations very easily. This makes Frank's a great choice.
The overall rating for Franks is outstanding from the hostess, to the waiter, and to most of all to the chef. My meal was made for perfection as well as the presentation. I highly recommend Frank’s Americana Revival to friends and family. We will definitely return soon. It was a wonderful meal to start the New Year!
We went to Frank's (party of 4) on New Years Eve. We arrived early and sat in the bar for a cocktail. They were well made and their cocktail menu was good. We were seated at our reservation time and proceeded to have an outstanding experience. The waiter was very knowledgeable and spent time reviewing menu options with us. We enjoyed several items from the appetizer and salad menu before moving on to entree's. All were very well prepared and the service was outstanding. The wine list is very good with normal (a little high) markups. This is a very good restaurant.
We went here on NYE for my birthday and initially, it felt hectic and I was nervous the service was not birthday celebrating worthy. But once things settled down for the restaurant, we were seated and the service was great. The menu was interesting and I am allergic to wheat and tomatoes and they were understanding to it and made my dining experience great. I think everyone liked their dishes - no complaints. We brought in a birthday cake and the waitress was great ensuring we had everything we needed. Overall, the experience and food was great and a good place to dine for families, dates, friends, special occasions, etc...I will say the crowd is a bit older than I had expected but that is neither here or there - it was an observation. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals.
Things were good, especially the food. Our waiter Christian was very helpful, knowledgeable about the menu and had a great personality. I don't expect things to go perfect when you are a party of 8, but it was the little things that made this night not as good as it could have been. Due to a mysterious seating problem we were seated a little late, but in a private wine room (good for us). There was no salt/pepper on the table, and our group was given one small basket of bread. Some of us ordered an appetizer, and no plates came with that. Like I said, it was the little things that kept this from being an outstanding dinner.
The food is good...always. Good ambience; one can enjoy a conversation with guests. The meal is started with a basket of delicious breads but the starters are also good. The waiters are attentive. If you are looking for a nice bar there is one here, not too big, and the noise does not disturb dinners. Make reservations.
This was my first visit and certainly not my last. The food was absolutely delicious and the server was very attentive. First impressions when you drive up to the location don't do justice to dining experience once inside. It is a bit pricey but well worth it!
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!
