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.

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.

Excellent fried chicken, 3 pieces. $5 charge for split plate, but worth it for generous portions of mashed potatoes and green beans. Caesar salad excellent. Very good desserts. Good wine list, though a bit pricey.

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.

Yummy crab cakes! We had the fried fish platter - always delicious - and the shrimp and grits. The shrimp were perfectly cooked and the gravy was sinfully rich and delicious!
