I enjoy the casual atmopshere and the bar area with friendly locals. The problem is that the steaks are more often than not, cooked incorrectly. I will say that a conservative estimate is that the steak had to be sent back 3 of 6 times. (I do not consider myself a "picky" eater but raw is not medium rare.) This past week it was just right. Maybe they have a new chef. I would think that a place that calls itself a Steak house would get it right 99% of the time.
I still keep going back because of the other items on the menu, the atmosphere and the friendly staff.

We went for a late Sunday lunch/earlt dinner. Overall, the food was good - filet mignon and sizzling steak were among the favorites at our table. Salads were fresh and crisp. Desserts were limited and nothing special but, you will probably will be so full from the main entree, you may not want dessert! Skip the lobster pie. So disappointing. It didn't taste like fresh lobster to me. Decor is nice - sort of an old tyme neighborhood feel. We would go again.

Neighborhood place with the food better than just okay. The roast beef is always good. But knowing that the speaker used to eat here all the time gives it a touch of historicity that's fun to know about.

This neighborhood steak house is a long way from Harvard Square, in every respect. With signed pictures of local sports heroes on the wall and Frank Sinatra on the sound system, you'd hardly know you were in the same Cambridge as the famous University--and you're not. Frank's feaures good drinks, steaks and a friendly ambiance that's welcome anywhere. There were ten of us and a wide variety of tastes and we were all happy with Frank's. The service was excellent and the food was good and reasonably priced. a fine alternative to the pricey joints a few miles south.
