Frank’s Outback has 45 seats inside the building and interestingly, the patrons get to walk through the open kitchen to enter the dining room. Once inside, you sense a warm welcoming atmosphere. The walls are painted in a cool blue with original artwork on the walls. White tablecloths, candle light, hand polished silverware and glassware grace the tables. There are also 100 seats outside, set in a garden setting under a canopy of trees. The outdoor seats are covered and not affected by weather. In the Fall and Winter guests are warmed by infrared heaters and the large outdoor fireplace.

    We had a great time celebrating my husband's birthday. The server was wonderful , the food fantastic and the ambience beautiful. Love the small plates menu. Small plates allowed me to try a salad ,appetizer without being too full to enjoy the main course

    Overall it was great but they pushed 2 small tables for 4 people and the leg room was a little tight- we are not big people but some tall. We were seated near 2 large groups at round tables so it was a little loud. Food was delicious and service was excellent. I would go again but I would specify some things when reserving a table
