    Franks was fabulous all the way around- only recommendation would be to improve the bread that is offered table side. Given the excellence of the food. the bread was disappointing- but this will not stop me from going back !!

    This is our second time visiting Pawleys Island as snowbirds. Last year everyone told us to try Franks so it’s the first restaurant we tried this year. Unfortunately, it did not live up to its reputation. Perhaps it was an off night, but we were unimpressed. I had the duck 2 ways. The seared breast was good but the raspberry gastrique was just raspberry jam. It was too sweet. The confit was so salty that I couldn’t finish it. It had no flavor other than salt. My husband had shrimp and grits which he loved but I thought it looked like a plate of beige. The shrimp was buried. There was no sign of sausage or ham. No garnish at all. Just beige stuff. The atmosphere was delightful, the drinks excellent and the service top notch. Maybe it was just a bad day in the kitchen, but I feel that a $200+ meal should be better than just ok.

    Have been a few times and wanted to try pizza. As with all other offerings their pizza does not disappoint. Thin crispy crust great sauce. Superior service.

    Thank you for your review with regards to Frank's Brick Oven Pizzas. Hoping you had the opportunity to sample more than one. We had a Flatbread special this week that was amazing... Garlic Roasted Chicken, With Spinach, Roasted Red Peppers, Ricotta Cheese. We look forward to your next visit with us and hearing which pizza is your favorite.

    My husband and I celebrated our 70th wedding anniversary at Frank’s last night and are so glad we went there. We ate at Frank’s Outback which is such a charming area. Such a cozy ambience close to the fireplace. Our daughter was with us and had planned everything with her brother. The food was delicious and our server (also named Frank!) did a great job guiding us and waiting on us. We are staying in this area for another ten days or so and are planning a return visit before we head home if we can get a reservation!

    Very good experience. It was a warm day for February and the server, Angie, was extremely accommodating with lowering and raising the heater temperature to make sure we were comfortable. The food, as always, was delicious and prepared exactly as ordered. We were celebrating a birthday so the layered caramel cake and ice cream with a sparkler was a nice way to end the meal.
