We eat at mabels quite often when in kennebunkport. Consistently excellent. The freshest fish and ample portions. Food is served piping hot. During the busy summer season reservations are a must. Entertaining and efficient waitstaff.

Small, casual restaurant with amazing food! Chowder was very good, lobster special: 2 lbs split was perfect. Seafood combination was perfectly prepared. A little pricey for the setting but great food.

Stopped in for lunch. steamers were cooked to perfection and very fresh. Lobster roll was great as well. Parking can be tricky- we found a spot across the street.

A relaxed, comfy environment with great food and service. We've been there several times over the years and it never fails to impress. Lots of different lobster dishes on the menu...and they even do all the work on the whole lobster by splitting it down the middle and cleaning it out for you. And the meals are always cooked to...

We have been to Mabel's Lobster Claw many times. I always read the menu carefully, and then order the Lobster Newburg, EVERY time! It is full of large pieces of lobster meat, and delicious, while not overly rich. The staff is well-trained, and, while it is usually really crowded and busy in summer months, they remain friendly and service is... More

Had to experience this "must go to" restaurant. Didn't disappoint. Food was very good - although calamari was a bit disappointing. Lazy man's lobster is a win. Reservations a must!

The chicken tenders and french fries were GREAT...good for kids, nice portion sizes. The next day we went back and my daughter wanted the onion rings. The batter didn't taste good, it tasted floury - and needed some type of seasoning. I was disappointed in the onion rings...but again the fries and chicken tenders were GREAT!
