A West Quoddy lighthouse volunteer recommended this diner, along with another near by. We're happy we chose Frank's. Very good home cooking selections. Nice setting. Fun to enjoy lunch while seeing New Brunswick, Canada across the inlet.

Stunning views from the back deck of the harbor and of Mulholland Lighthouse across the way in New Brunswick. They have creative choices for their hamburgers and the ones we tried were delicious!

This is a great spot to find. The food and service are above average. Since it is very popular among the local residents, it is wise to eat at off peak hours. The menu changes daily with specials that sell out quickly. The view from...More
