Appropriately named, this Frank's Steaks serves up cuts of beef in diverse and dynamic fashion, plating portions for one or two people, and offering variations that include Kobe beef, filet mignon and skirt. Despite the mention of “steak” on the marquee, however, those who’d rather dine on poultry will find plenty of choices, as will seafood lovers. As for ambience, it’s a pub-style dining room, minus any sports-related memorabilia that would imply this is anything less than a smart stop to grab a bite.

The motto here is "We ain't just steaks." But that beef still is the main reason to eat at Frank's.
This is an enjoyable restaurant for well-prepared, unadorned American food, emphasis on juicy beef. The setting matches the simplicity of the menu. And the service is attentive and accommodating.
Begin with a shrimp cocktail or the baked littlenecks. The Greek salad and the Caesar are all right, too.
The crabcake platter and the Cobb salad with grilled chicken are pleasant enough, as are the tricolor salad and the hamburger.
But on to the main events. Best are the porterhouse steak for two, T-bone for one, the bone-in strip steak and the Romanian skirt steak. The prime rib also is fine. Likewise, the grilled loin veal chop spiked with thyme, and the calf's liver with sauteed onions and bacon.
The seafood selections are satisfactory, and include blackened tuna, baked salmon and broiled shrimp or pecan-crusted sole.
Sample the creamed spinach and the fried potatoes with any of these choices.
Cheesecake is the obligatory finale, if you have room.

Franks's Steaks - the best steaks in town
Part of our mystique is the homey atmosphere, theatrical lighting and youthful feelings inspired by the crayons and butcher paper table coverings. The artwork that surrounds the dining room comes right off the tables and has been drawn by our customers. The artwork is always entertaining and usually very creative. We are also known for our big round tables that can accommodate large parties and which promote a fun party atmosphere. We have many signature items that customers come from all over the country to try. Our marinated Romanian Skirt Steak, our 44 oz Porterhouse Steak, and a Roasted Country Chicken are just a few of them. We have a great reputation for our Prime Aged meats such as our New York Strip Steak, Marinated Strip Steak and our 26 oz Bone-In Strip Steak. Our meats are hand selected by our own butcher who gives us the best center-cut meats from prime aged beef for which we pay a premium price. This is a big part of the value we offer to our guests. We are also known for the professional, courteous and knowledgeable floor staff, beginning at the front door with the hostess/host, and carrying over to the wait staff, bartenders and busboys. Our staff bends over backwards to please our customers.
