Good Eats in Kennebunkport

Dinner at Mabel's was so fresh, so delicious. This is an old shanty type restaurant with few modern decorative updates...feels like you've been thrown back into the 50's, but it's clean, cute, has a great friendly staff, and most important, the seafood is Maine perfect! We began with appetizers of... read more

When we walked in to the restaurant we were greeted by the staff and fellow diner telling us how wonderful our meal was going to be, and they didn't lie. Huge portions and every thing was great. It was one of the most tastiest meals I've had in my life. If I lived in a sitcom I would have broke... More

We were staying at a hotel across the street from Mabel's so we went there because it was walkable. The food was delicious and the prices very good. There was a full bar and lots of fresh seafood. We liked it so much we ate there a second night!

The pre cracked lobster was perfectly prepared and the sweetest meat I've ever eaten. Clams were fresh and delish too!

The table ordered the lobster mac & cheese, lobster risotto, clam chowder, lobster newburg and lobster savannah. All were delicious and well prepared. The service was friendly and attentive. Definitely recommend Mabel's for a casual dinner.

This restaurant is not a beautiful structure, and the cheap silverware and paper napkins might deceive you. It's small inside and the booths and tables are tightly situated. There is also an outside seating option, which would be great in the summer. But do not despair. The food is fabulous. We had the fillet with baked potato and salad. The... More

Great lobster dishes, fabulous pies and ice cream for the kids. A go to spot when at the Colony and you can shop across the street while you wait for a table.

Broiled scallops were very sweet and plentiful. Fried shrimp were good and plentiful as well. Huge platter of fried seafood is really too much for one person. We had a lot of leftovers. Service was good as well. Yes, Bush does eat here. He lives only one mile down the road.

The lobster was so fresh and just off the boat. It is not a fine dining establishment, but the dining was definitely fine. Even though it was May 1st, we were able to sit outside. The onion rings are out of this world! Not the kind where you bite into it and the whole onion comes out just nice flakey... More
