We stopped at another well known diner and seafood market, not realizing the market was open but diner was not operating at this time of year.

During my recent visit to Maine a Portland friend suggested we have lunch at Seafood Center in Arundel after we gave up on the crowded conditions of Ogunquit. We got there for a late lunch and there were few other around. The place seemed very basic and straight-forward which is what I like. The guy behind the counter, John?, was... More

We've come here for a few years. Until today we thought the food was fairly descent. The chowder used to be creamy. It seemed to be made with milk now. The lobster roll was inexpensive and fresh but kind of skimpy. The roll was way too buttery. Cole slaw was good. The tap water had a funny taste but that... More

We used to go to the Seafood Center at least once a week for many years until it was sold a few years ago. Then when we visited a few times we were disappointed. The portions were smaller, the prices were higher, and the food was inconsistent. But we decided to try the Seafood Center this season one more time.... More

This was the first place we ate at when we got to our campground. It's nothing fancy, just good down home cooking. Service was friendly and efficient. The food was good to very good. Look for the specials!!

Fried clams in crumbs were excellent. We ordered a large onion ring but when served, was on the clam dinner with no French fries. A bit disappointing for that. My lobster roll was stuffed, but some of the lobster very wet, which turned the roll soggy in places.

Excellent clam strip platter, plentiful serving. Simple, traditional, casual setting, excellent traditional seafood. Weekday lunch visit, not crowded. Steady pick up service. Great quality and serving size.

We've lived in Maine long enough now to remember when hitting the Seafood Center was a great, quick meal out. The portions and the quality were excellent. Since the new owners have taken over, we no longer partake. Smaller portions, lower quality, shorter hours, and not open all winter. The owners need to take stock and reinvent themselves if even...

We decided to give it another try as we really liked it before So we took our family there and was even more disappointed. The kids hotdog plate was so bad that my granddaughter only took one bite, an it was suppose to come with applesauce but never did and the fries were awful. We also had a couple of... More
