Excellent service...waitress was very busy but attentive. Clam chowder had a great taste. Combo shrimp and scallops along with Chocolate Creme pie were wonderful. Highly recommended.

What a treat this place was. We enjoyed a lunch and a dinner here. The staff is super friendly. Very cheerful, kind to the kids...overall happy atmosphere. The food was superb. Everything we ordered both times was fantastic! The lobster stew was so yummy!!! So flavorful with tons of big hunks of lobster. The Alfredo is amazing. The two little boys shared an adult portion (they didn't eat it all, but they came close!). Both boys loved it. It was so full of flavor, rich and creamy...delicious! Frank's marinara is probably the best we have had anywhere and could hold its own in Italy. Really good quality. The pasta was perfectly cooked and the veal, perfect. Really, everything we had was delicious. The view during the day was so fun. We watched the seals frolicking in the bay...what a treat!

I just don't understand why Franks is not #1 in Lubec....it was just wonderful.

I ate here with my travel partner while on vacation. The proprietor of the Eastland Motel recommended Frank's as a nice casual dining experience. My partner had the regular hamburger and was ecstatic with it. I had the baked haddock with Summer squash and it was very good. The haddock was cooked perfectly and was delicious and I have no idea how they did it but the Summer squash tasted like it had simmered in a seasoned pot for hours but still had some crispness to it. Service was FANTASTIC!! Thank you, Crystal (sp?) for prompt and appropriate attention! If you are in or even NEAR Lubec, Maine, this restaurant is worth a meal (or two, three, four....).

We went here in mid June. The food is good. It's not a big place but we were comfortable.

Eating in Lubec is a challenge but we found this restaurant the best choice. I had baked haddock two nights in a row and was quite pleased. My husband had chicken parm one night and was not thrilled. Think the fish is local, fresh and a good option. Being able to take a bottle of wine makes this an even better choice. Of course, looking out on the bay watching the fog roll in and out adds to the enjoyment.
