If it was possible I'd give this place a negative star rating. Blah food, mouthwash rum punch, annoying owner.... Need I say more? I recommend you avoid this place and hit up one of the many amazing spots on Caye Caulker. Don't waste your money....More

Had an amazing grilled lobster dinner on the beach and it was Frantastic! Food was delicious and Fran's crew was so friendly. Only thing needing improvement is the all you can drink rum punch during dinner. Needs rum in it

We had dinner at Fran's Beachside Grill where you can have the best grilled lobster in town with free rum punch during the entire stay. The chef Roberto will not stop smiling while preparing your food. Love this place

Yes, be prepared to wait. I think that's half the fun. The lobster is well worth it. Im not going to get bent of out shape on the wait for a lobster dinner and all you can drink for 15USD. I definitely will stop again.

Having seen tgevplace was busy the night before, we were unfortunately sucked in by Fran's sales pitch as we walked past tonight. I have never experienced such a terrible attitude from any person, let alone from someone in a service industry. Fran was friendly until...More

I've been visiting this wonderful beach eatery since my first trip to Caye Caulker and it is one that I always anticipate. Food is made fresh when you order and the plate always includes your selected entree, and a yummy side dish and island drink....More

This place is usually packed in the evenings, so expect a bit of a wait. But the food is worth it! There's not much to choose from, but the jerk chicken is to die for. Plus, it includes unlimited top-ups of rum punch. And Fran...More
