My wife and I frequently take a small trip up to Sæby, an old fishing village, that in recent years has become a popular tourist spot to visit. With limited amount of restaurants and cafes in the area, Frank's is definitely one of the better here. This was the first time my wife and I tried Frank's. Getting the very... More

My parents and I were here in mid-September, so there were limited options for eating lunch (as far as we could tell). Franks turned out to be a good choice! My dad had the lunch buffet which was very good, though the soup in particular had an excessive amount of butter. As a vegetarian, I usually have limited options in... More

We are a local couple and visited the restaurant a Sunday evening in the late summer. The restaurant is located on first floor with stairs and/or elevator. The spacy dining room has a good climate and akustik with nice sea and harbour view. The buffet (239 DKK) has a good assortment of seafood, fish and more traditional Danish meat food.... More

We visited the restaurant a bit off-season, so the place was very quiet. The service was ok, and the food was very good. Very nice style of the place too. The only strange thing was their choice of background music. Kind of an artsy lounge feel to it that definetely didn't suit the place. But apart from that we where... More

Great location in Saeby Harbor but the food and service is just average. Wine selections and prices are quite good but this is not one of those places that I would go out of my way to visit.

We eat at Franks a couple of times a year, and it never disappoints. The buffet is always great, and all the ingredients are organic and local. It's not a cheap place to eat, but worth the money. The view from the restaurant over the harbor is fantastic.

Had the dinner buffet which had a variety of seafood and some meat. The food was ok, but a bit pricey and the service was very slow.

Dinner with family, had reserved a table in advance. Waiter is young student but doing OK and is attentive despite many guests in the restaurant. Some of the evening dishes on the menu were sold out, a bit unusual for a restaurant on a Saturday evening but only/already at 19.00. Had fish buffet which was OK, pork tenderloin and fried... More

Fresh and organic produce where possible all home made simply a real treat to eat at this fantastic restaurant where the view over the marina helps to make this visit extra special. Will return for sure both private as well as business

We arrived at lunch time with no reservation - a sign said we should wait and so we did....Usually most restaurants have a designated person to look after arriving guests. A Kind young woman came and found us a table with the explanation that they were short of staff. That is of course OK but the explanation should perhaps been... More
