I have Amex Platinum, and will be stuck for a few hours in Frankfurt on a Lufthansa stopover, any decent lounges in that airport?
that I'm eligible for?

Amex plat/priority pass have access to what I call the generic lounges.

If you are used to the usa standards, you might enjoy yourself.

basicly.

the non-airline specific ones are usually a bit less.

US issued AMEX Plat's do not come with Priority Pass, so you probably can't access any of their lounges.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

This is a YMMV topic. Some reps at the lounges dont know the difference between the US cards and Asian/European ones.

I was once guested into the Plaza Lounge at YVR with such a card.

Of course, thanks to our good friend SuperFlyer many Forum members can expect access through numerous previously inaccessible doors

if you are lucky, and subscribed to my promo, and you have it  on time, or meet a guy like me in FRA, who invites anyone that looks yiddish into the lounge.

I once asked 2 yeshivish looking guys in IAH if they wanted to come with me into the "club" and they looked at me like I just fell off the moon  ;D

Their loss, IAH term E Presidents club is awesome!
