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 the porch or the window tables is fantastic. If you are in the area, this... More

We went there to take a break from Maine seafood and try some of the Italian entrees on the menu. The place was cozy, busy and the staff efficient and friendly. We ordered veal park and eggplant parm, both served with "red sauce" and pasta. The veal was great, eggplant just ok, but the sauce was very very sweet. Didn't... More

My husband and I had a wonderful experience yesterday for a late lunch. We waited briefly for a window table with a lovely view. I had the lobster roll with slaw and fries. My husband had the cheese ravioli and toasted garlic bread. The pours for our chardonnays were generous. Our waiter Greg was most attentive. We loved the comfy... More

We were traveling to New Brunswick in late September. None of the three restaurants recommended at our B&B were still serving at 7:30 on a quiet Tuesday evening. There was literally no place to eat. Frank's was closed but the staff was on the deck. They invited us to come up and served us huge bowls of delicious fish chowder,... More

We stopped in for lunch, just in time. We got the second to last table, then the wait line began... I got broccoli-cheese soup and Spaghetti & meatballs. Both very good and perfect for a rainy Sunday! My husband got the tortellini soup and Baked Stuffed Shells, which he enjoyed as well! Very comfortable, cozy atmosphere. Perfect for the moment!

This was the closest place to where we were staying, so we stopped in for our first meal in Lubec. The Fish Stew was outstanding, really wish I could find a seafood soup like theirs here at home! My husband had a fish sandwich - very generous portion - and a side dish of delicious fries that I kept stealing.... More

We were in the Lubec, Me. area in late Sept. and wanted to find a good place to eat on a cool and rainy afternoon. We saw Frank's Dockside listed on Trip Advisor with good reviews. We were relieved to find it open since many places had already closed for the season. We were greeted warmly by a young man... More

We very much enjoyed the haddock Florentine as well as the mixed dish of scallops, haddock, shrimp and stuffed mushrooms. The place is popular with both ocals and tourists.

Well the visit started out promising when the waiter quickly noticed we were disappointed when we had been asked to sit in the back corner when every seat in the front of the ocean side window was open. He asked if we preferred to sit in the front and we quickly answered yes and moved straight up to the front.... More
