Frank Ski’s Restaurant, Atlanta, GA Restaurant

Located in a huge space in Buckhead, Frank Ski’s restaurant has only been open several months. Frank Ski is well known for being a DJ on V-103 radio. But that personality isn’t just a facade. Mr. Ski is every bit a fun and gracious host as one would want. He welcomed us into his new restaurant for a media dinner on a recent Tuesday evening.

The space is stunning. A large dining room is to the left of the restaurant with a large bar area elevated and overlooking the dining room. There’s also a small private dinning room that looks like it would accommodate a group of about ten or so people.

Mr. Ski shared with us that there are several sofas around the restaurant for lounging because he wants people to feel they can come hang out for drinks and appetizers with their friends. And he wants to feed customers late into the night with the kitchen staying open until 2 am on weekends.

Our group started out meal with Calamari, Fish Tacos and Chicken Satay. The sauce for the calamari tasted house made – slightly sweet, slightly spicy it was so tasty, I would have slathered that all over the fish tacos if I could have. As it was the fish was crispy and tender.

For entrees, Short Ribs remained the most popular item at the table. They were prepared perfectly moist and tender. The salmon was another option along with chicken. Both were good portions and left us satisfied. However, I would be anxious to visit Frank Ski’s again and have the whole fried snapper.

Some Europeans visiting the restaurant, simply asked their server to “give us Atlanta” and Frank didn’t think twice about suggesting the Short Ribs. And to our group, he even served up one of his menu favorites: the sweet potato tots. So marvelous, we couldn’t get enough of them. If you visit Frank Ski’s promise me to order the tater tots.

    We called for the first time to order delivery. We were even asked if this was our first time ordering. When we told them where we lived we were put on hold for her to check the area. The manger gets on the phone and tells us we are outside the area and then abruptly and rudely hangs up the phone. My husband calls back to ask for the owner and we are told the rude guy is the owner. He then proceeds to scream at my husband and tells my husband to basically F off. This is a horrible way to do business and would encourage everyone not to eat here!

    I’ve eaten here a couple times before a show at the Fox.  My experience, thankfully, was quite different than the writer of the article.  I found the people to be amiable and helpful both on the phone when I was making reservations, and when we were there. 

    In all honesty, I didn’t care so much about the quality of food as long as it was okay, which is what I would describe the food as.  My main concern was that we’d be able to have a quick, tasty bite and then get to the show. 

    I had no complaints with the food, and was quite impressed with the helpfulness of our waiter.  I’m planning to go again.  Although, I will say that the experience the other poster had was atrocious.  To have someone yell at him on the phone is completely unacceptable.  I can only hope that the person on the phone was not really the manager, and has since been let go.
