Mabel's is a classic. Quintessential Maine. My boyfriend and I lunched there on our road trip through Maine. When our server learned he hadn't ever tried fried clams (I was trying to convince him they're delicious) she asked the kitchen for one so that he could sample them. The service was excellent. The ambiance is great. The food however is... More

Nice ambiance and servers. Peanut butter pie/icecream good and fun. Check out the tiny bathroom door.

Pitched up without a booking and sat in the outside part protected by the windbreaker. Had a couple of local ales and just had to try the lobster, it was my first in the USA and utterly fantastic. No more to be said - want lobster? Go to Mabel's.

Great spot for no-frills meals ... stay with the basic and don't go fancy and you'll really get a taste of the area!

Small, casual diner style restaurant with wooden bench booths and various table seating. Outdoor seating as well. It was raining so we chose indoors. The staff was predominately older women, which I love, you can tell they have worked there for years. Our waitress made recommendations for us, which we took and LOVED! He go the whole 2lb lobster and... More

This place is so cute. We happened upon it as we were staying at a nearby hotel. We were lucky enough to get a seat outside on the small patio. The weather was great and we got to watch passersby as we ate. I ordered a fish sandwich and fries which was simple but very tasty. My husband ordered the... More

Mabel's is a small, very casual spot for some VERY good Lobster. We ate outside, right along the streetside. The restaurant is quite simple, yet quaint. I'm not going to say that the service is 'overly friendly', because quite frankly, the food is a heckuva lot more enjoyable than the staff. If they'd been more welcoming and friendly, I'd have...

Staying in Vermont we drove over to the Maine Coast for the day - ate a late lunch at Mabel's. Never had Lobster Roll before but if I'm ever back in area again I will (if they are all as good as this was). We have eaten clam chowder in many cities and this was by far the best ever!!... More

My husband and I recently visited Kennebunkport, Maine and stopped in this little restaurant called, "Mabel's Lobster Claw." This place has wonderful food! If you want fresh lobster...you've found a good place. The service was also outstanding. Shhhh! I understand that when former President George Bush and Barbara Bush are in town...they frequent this place. They have a special corner... More
