A quick search online finds that Ann & Fran’s is rated number two for restaurants in West Yarmouth (TripAdvisor) with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating.  In the summer it’s common to drive by and see groups of people outside at the picnic tables, chatting with others, while waiting for a seat.  With food this good though, it’s rarely a problem for customers.  Regulars know to expect a wait and talking with other patrons is just part of the atmosphere. Inside the restaurant, Ann & Fran’s has a homey feel that makes you feel immediately comfortable. It’s a place you can bring your kids or your grandma and soon find yourself striking up a conversation with the table next to you. While many locals visit more frequently during the winter months when it’s a little slower, many travelers consider themselves “regulars” and return year after year during their summer vacation.
