While visiting the West Quoddy Lighthouse we were given a recommendation to try Franks for lunch. We had a beautiful view of the water, the bridge, and Canada! The service was excellent and we enjoyed our meal.

Impromptu light lunch stop for beverages & apps. Killer view from the deck - watched harbor seals & cormorants feasting on the incoming tide. Pleasantly varied menu items & beverage choices. Chatty, knowledgeable & attentive waitstaff. If we were local, we would be regulars.

My husband and I always enjoy a meal at Frank's when we vacation in Lubec. Excellent calamari and crab dishes. Dine outdoors for nice water views. Service was friendly and attentive.

In answer to my own question. Dogs are allowed on many decks/patios in Maine. Ruby was in fact allowed on this one as well as others in Lubec.
