Great Service – My husband and I go to Franks at least every 3 months. We love the french onion soup and grilled mussels are always a treat. The only entree I did not like was the stuffed flounder. The specials are great but alittle expensive. The food is always wonderful.
Must have been an off night – My wife and I were encouraged to go to this small strip mall restaurant a few months back by friends. The veal marsala was so bad (tasted like beef gravy) I sent it back and explained that I thought it tasted strange and I declined the offer to order something else. When the check arrived (my meal was not charged) the owner/chef came to the table to investigate the complaint. Instead of just leaving it alone, he chose to argue with me about the quality of the food and wasn't done until he had completely ruined the evening for us. Evidently his kitchen never makes a mistake.
Pass on Frank's unless you're prepared to go at it with Frank...
A Cozy Corner – Frank's Gourmet Grille is located in a cozy corner in East Lyme. You walk through the door and your greeted by a friendly host(ess). Once seated, your friendly server drops by with some olives and introduces him/herself. On the menu there are things such as Chicken/Veal Picatta, Chicken/Veal Marsala, Stuffed Chicken, Coquilles St. Jaques (Scallops), Pastas, and the Specials that always tempt me. You pay a good amount of money but they get you stuffed. They are not cheap with portions. If you aren't full enough after dinner. They have a dessert tray with about 10-15 desserts on it. There is something to tempt everyone. On your way out you will probably notice the beautiful bar and lounge. It's used as almost an extension of the dining room. They serve dinner or just cocktails in there. It's a great addition for the customers who have to wait for a table.
