One of my favorites restaurants in Houston. Located in the River Oaks area. The food is always excellent. The drinks are great. The staff is friendly and polite. They are about the customers.

The food at Frank's is very very good. My favorite food is the chicken fried steak. It is very very good. The service at the bar is great. The bartenders are attentive and friendly. This is one of my favorite places to dine and/or have drinks in Houston.

Met my daughter and new bf there for dinner. Had an appetizer and wine in the bar beforehand. Bartender was great, wish I could remember his name, had a beard, youngish guy. I had the Shrimp and Grits dinner, and it did not disappoint. Everyone was happy with their meals, daughters short ribs looked amazing.

Just came from a great family dinner at this place with fantastic American cuisine. Tuna tartare and beef tenderloin appetizers were great! Highly recommend shrimp and grits and short ribs too! Great service. We will be back.

The food is very good southernly fried to perfection and accompanied with a tasty variety of salads soups and vegetables. The waiters and waitresses are polite and go out of their way to provide a quality service! The food comes out in a timely manner even if neatness is not their strongest suit.

First time for lunch - many times for dinner. Thought I'd have a 'working lunch' with colleagues and it was PERFECT.

Truly "...a classic neighborhood restaurant." Not a seafood restaurant;... More

As gumbo judges, we wanted to visit Franks to see how they measured up. Quite well, as a matter of fact. The roux was a nice brown with a savory flavor. There was ample seafood, including oysters, and just enough okra to identify it as truly southern style. Very nice. The fried okra was fantastic as well. We found the... More
