I only discovered Frankie's earlier this year after hearing about it from several locales. Since February, I've been coming to Frankie's every time I come to town. The soft shelled crabs are AWESOME, shrimp are extra jumbo, and oysters are always fresh and likewise very good - each with a homemade batter. In comparison to the "fine dining" options in Port Aransas, hands-down Frankie's is the very best place in town. Chef Frankie makes all of her own batters (crab, shrimp, fish, oysters); and her pancakes are out of this world. I only wish I had discovered this place several years ago when they opened as their food is outstanding. Also noteworthy are their outstanding desserts including homemade banana pudding, strawberry shortcake, carrot cake, ...... I sure hope they made it safely through Hurricane Harvey and will return to Port Aransas.
