We liked Frank's so much that we went there twice. The menu has something for everyone. Pasta, veal, seafood, steak, and when we were there, they were featuring an extra Greek menu. The staff and food were great!

We had the veal dishes which are Frank’s speciality. Excellent mouthwatering meals. Come with a big appetite as plates are full. Beer and wine are available. This is a locals hangout. Frank’s veal prep is his favorite. Try it you’ll love it!

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.
