We had dinner at Frank's on the recommendation of the owner of Eastland Motel. It was a great suggestion! We finished up at West Quoddy Head Lighthouse and stopped at Frank's on the way back to the Motel. We arrived early- probably around 5:30, and were seated right away. I ordered the seafood pasta special and my kids ate off... More

Franks is the best. Frank makes everything to order from Scratch. The staff are wonderful. Chef Ramsey would never find anything amiss in this Restaurant. The presentation is excellent and the food is scrumptious. Prime Rib is my favorite but everything on the menu is so delicious that it's difficult to make a choice. My favorite dessert is Coconut Cream... More

Wife and I accidentally found Frank's Dockside we left US1. We arrived at 4:30 and there was no waiting. I had the bowl of fish chowder. It was a huge bowl and it was wonderful. I ask for a take home box for the rest. My order was the seafood sampler.. The shrimps were huge everything was delicious. My wife... More

This was my second time here and unfortunately they were out of Lobster. They did have a lobster cake which was more like a lobster bake with way to much filler but tasty. They have really good fries. I have had the lobster roll in the past and it was very good with just a touch of mayo and lots... More

Great staff and a wide selection of food. Wine and beer only. High recommend it... As I said it was my first time here. I was too late for the prime rib (Saturday), but that was poor planning on my part.

Went to Franks Dockside the first time with friends and were pleasantly surprised. My husband and I had the Fish Chowder (home style with milk, loaded with fish). It was wonderful, reminded me of my mother's New England recipe. Our friends tried the Eggplant Parm. with Pasta and the Baked Fish (Both very good) We shared desserts, All Home made,... More

The food was good, but not amazing. I think the descriptions on the menu were better than what I tasted, but it was by no means bad. We had a super nice server. Reasonable prices.

the french fries were excellent, home made. the fish sandwich was really great too. Based on the fried fish in the sandwich i would come back again for the fish and chips. nice view across to Canada too.

What a shame! We have enjoyed meals at Frank's for several years, but have now limited our dining here to an occasional lunch. It is just too much trouble to get in at night. So we don't even try any more. And we have tried - phone calls for reservations (which were "lost" or ignored when we got there on... More

Saturday evening in Lubec, late August. Long wait after putting in our order, no fault of the wait staff, it's just a miniscule kitchen. Food was certainly okay, but not when we had to wait better part of an hour.
