On my way out of Frank's I saw a book for sale at the cash register - $20 for a book about the family that opened Frank's. Save your money. The Frank's of old seems to have up and moved. Frank's now has a restaurant...More

The food here is always good. Very good. Also have a small gift shop. They have excellent breakfasts all day. They have an excellent birthday special 15.95 off of your meal. Great deal. Couldn't ask for more. From fried seafood to BBQ. EXCELLENT.

This is our must stop for breakfast in the area. The biscuits are amazing. Ask for real butter it is not on the table. The New Orleans shrimp and grits are amazing. My husband always gets the Cajun Benedict. Perfect choice for him. Come early...More

Plain Jane Restaurant with Amazing Beakfast! Being from the Midwest, we were looking forward to eating Cajun and Frank's did not disappoint. The Seafood Grand omelete with the not to be missed Cajun hollandaise sauce, and the Aligator sausage is wonderful. And if you are...More
