Local institution Frank’s Restaurant opened in 1988 in the old Marlow’s Supermarket building (here since the 1940s). The elegant interior is enhanced by an original antique mahogany bar, handcrafted in the late 19th century. Start with the classic she-crap soup before sampling the pan-fried cornmeal-encrusted grouper, or the grilled-shrimp skewers with coconut rice fritters. In 1992, Frank’s Outback opened behind the main restaurant in Frank Marlow’s mother’s old house; the best feature is the huge covered outdoor seating area, set in a garden under a canopy of trees. The menu is similar but a little more creative (think house-made jalapeño-pimento cheese with fried wonton chips), and there’s also section of wood-fired pizzas.
