A family run bar with some inconsistencies that I can't believe have me liking the place as much as I do. A typical bar menu with good basic offerings, especially the wings & the sizzlers at the end of the menu, but sometimes it seems like the chef has a night off & the backup guy isn't quite so good....

Don't go expecting anything more. Its a bar with tunes and wings for us locals.That being said they have really awesome wings. I'm being generous with my rating because of the great wings. We go occasionally with friends to listen to the karaoke on Friday nights but recently discovered open mic night on Wednesdays which we really enjoyed. There are... More

I can't say all of what I think, but I will just say that when you sit down and look around, you will wonder why they haven't been required to repair the falling ceiling, etc. Honestly, service is bad. The food is ok, but there is some real attitude with the wait staff. The only good thing about this place... More

Wing night on Tues and Thurs. is really good with many different choices of flavours! Nice outside patio but sometimes there are too many smokers. Very busy on wing nights and Friday nights. Not a fancy restaurant but great ambiance when busy! Lots of people having a great time.

I came here with a friend after visiting the beach in Cobourg. We have been trying different local restaurants and pubs in the area each time we come. We opted to visit Frank's Pasta and Grill based on a quick glance of reviews when Googling the restaurant. Upon arrival, my friend had to answer a phone call so he stood... More

If you want a large choice of wings visit Frank's on Tuesday's and Thursday's! Enjoy game nights out with the boys or family night with the kids! You can enjoy a quiet dinner with your better half! Whatever you like Frank's can accommodate you! There is also entertainment nights with dancing and great music!! During the warmer months the place... More

Really good spaghetti and meat balls at a great price. The restaurant is old and dated, but the spaghetti is great. My friends tell me the other food on the menu is great, but I stick with spaghetti.The staff is friendly and try very hard to please. If you eat here yo wont leave hungry !Your wallet will also enjoy... More

A couple of buddies and myself went out to Franks last night for some wings. I've stopped in here a few times at night for drinks but never had their food before. To be honest, the wings are large and taste pretty decent but it in no way will make up for worst service I've ever had in my life.... More

For the meatiest and best wings in Cobourg Franks is the place to go! It's not fancy so don't go dressed up as you may end up sitting on a picnic table bench or a patio chair but the service is great and so are the wings!
