Frank's Table is a stainless steel, marble and glass sculpture displayed at the 24th Street end of the Rotary Trail linear park. It takes the form of a table and chairs.

The sculpture was commissioned as part of the Alabama-Mississippi Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society's "Legacy of Leadership" program, and honors celebrated chef and restaurateur Frank Stitt.

The sculpture, budgeted at about $61,000, was commissioned from Columbia, South Carolina sculptor Greg Fitzpatrick. The design for the centerpiece of the table and the backs of the chairs were based on honeybee wings, with the grouping representing the idea that, "all things need to come together to make progress."

The statue was dedicated on November 18, 2019.
