Frank and Clara’s Restaurant and Lounge is a relatively simple seafood restaurant that has a solid nightlife scene on the weekends, as well as a convenient location in the heart of Salter Path. Close to a number of local hotels and condo complexes, the restaurant is a good dinner spot for visitors looking for convenience, as well as a fun night owl destination for music and drink fans.

The restaurant portion is only open for dinner, and the menu features a range of entrees that are primarily focused on seafood. Stand-outs on the menu include the she-crab soup, which is a local favorite, as well as a range of fried or broiled shrimp, scallops, crab cakes and fillets, and a selection of salads and appetizers, as well as desserts, for lighter or heartier appetites. There’s also a kids’ menu with child-friendly fare, and Italian-influenced dishes like shrimp scampi and seafood au gratin. Evening patrons can head upstairs and visit the bar, which has live music, DJs, and even karaoke on weekend evenings, and which stays open after the restaurant has closed.

A classic coastal spot, Frank and Clara’s Restaurant and Lounge is a long-time staple along the Crystal Coast shoreline, and is a convenient option for night owls and nearby dinner patrons alike.
