While visiting Lubec we enjoyed eating here with casual dining, good clam & fish basket, clam chowder, and fish sandwich. Food and service was very good. Would eat here again.

The seafood at Frank's was very good. Nothing like fresh seafood. Service was excellent and had a nice outdoor deck. Take out was also available. Prices were very reasonable. Best food in Lubec.
