Enjoyed the delicious fresh seafood. Service excellent. With a window table or on the open deck you get a great view across the Lubec Narrows to Mulholland Lighthouse.

We went in expecting fish and chips but ended up ordering Italian dishes that were huge and tasty. Ended up taking half home. Everything made to order. Thanks for the meal, Frank.

The fish and chips baskets were great! We sat on the sunny deck enjoying the best view of one of the lighthouses on Campobello and also the US-Canadian bridge. It was a perfect quick stop lunch. Lubec is adorable.

We chose Franks for dinner because the lighthouse was displaying a reflection and I wanted a good view. The Italian shrimp and chicken over pasta dish was delicious as was the garlic bread. My wife had a lobster roll and fries. Both meals were fine and the service was very good. The deck seating was just right for my view.... More

Right on the water, with outdoor seating as well as indoor, and a good selection of beers - especially dark beer, which can be hard to find. The food was excellent as well as the service. They also have takeout. The indoor seating wasn't anything special, but we liked it outside. They have blankets if you get chilled after the... More

Dinner was delightful...mainly because of the view from the outside deck and company. The have an extensive list of appetizers, entrees and beverages. I enjoyed the veal scalipini-it had a delightful flavor. It would have been nice to have had some bread with my meal however. The server was a bit surly.

One of the top two restaurants in Lubec. Excellent food. We went to dinner twice. On the first night our service was terrible but we noted that the other servers appeared pleasant and attentive, so we returned. Our second night service was fantastic. Highly recommended.

Fresh Seafood, Great Fish Chowder, The Tuna Melt on Garlic Bread was really good (best my friend has ever had!). They all work real hard to make this place hum. Extensive menu, good prices and great wait staff. Nice outside deck, wonderful view of the water and Light House. We saw a Bald Eagle fly by as we were parking... More

When I visit Lubec I always go to Franks. Have tried a couple other restaurants in town, but come back to Franks for the great food, prompt and friendly service, and pleasant atmosphere. Love the Seafood Stew, the chowders, specials and desserts are great too.
