We were told we had to eat here while on our trip through Vermont and Maine and really enjoyed it. It's a small place so make reservations well in advance and know that it's not a fancy place but rather your typical lobster place. The service was great, we had a full lobster sliced down the middle with a garlic... More

Well, we were looking for a restaurant to have a great lobster dinner. We had been eating lobster rolls and wanted something more substantial so we ordered Lobster Scampi. I wish I could say we enjoyed it. Actually the first bite was rather good but it really didn't have any flavor of butter or garlic. There was plenty of lobster!... More

Very small restaurant with searing on front porch (shielded with tarps when raining or cold). Great clam chowder and fried clams, the fried clams were massive and honestly 2 could share there was that many. Lobsters perfect and sent us away happy,happy,happy. Great fun evening, staff was very nice.

Mabel's is a very welcoming restaurant with the most excellent sea food, especially the lobster. My lobster was split, had huge prawns with it and a garlic and cayenne flavouring. Even my wife's lobster mac and cheese was fantastic. And try the Allagash black beer.

Our 5th visit to Mabel's. Consistently great food from Lobster to filet mignon. Their pies are all homemade and delicious! Try the Maine Blueberry. Their fish is Dayboat fresh! They also have some great wines. We've only been here for lunch and always in the Fall. Never disappointed!

Very good lobster roll and excellent homemade pies. Slaw has onions so beware. The fresh blueberry pie was delicious and homemade. There is a corner shrine to the Bushes who apparently like to eat here. This is a small place with inside and outside seating. parking available behind the building across the street but avoid the reserved places.

Both the service and food were less than mediocre. If Denny's made lobster scampi, it would taste like this. Soft noodles sitting in a pool of garlic, but otherwise flavorless, pasta water. I was never told about the specials, never given water, recommended a wine that was awful, and when I picked out the lobster and left the rest of... More

We went about 100 miles out of our way to go to Mabel's today; it had been 2 years and we simply could not wait any longer! The clam chowder exceptional, the fried clams the same and their steamers are superb. Can't wait to get back!

We visited Mabel’s when we staying at the Nonatum resort and it was only a 2 minute walk down the road so nice and easy with kids. It’s just a small place with limited outdoor seating so make sure that you book if you want an outside table. It is very popular and gets busy early. We chose to sit... More
