Very quaint, nice service

The lobster mac & cheese was FANTABULOUS! We were there in April during the slow season. Nice staff and very friendly to talk with during our dinner with our newborn.

We enjoyed this restaurant better on our first visit (about 5 years earlier), than the second time. It was still really good, though!

On our way from Boston to Portland, Maine, we stopped in Kennebunkport to see the sights. We ended up having dinner there at Mabel's. We didn't have a reservation (it was a weekend night) but they were able to squeeze us in. Thanks goodness - I would not have wanted to miss this meal! The service and food were great,... More

A short walk from Nonantum resort and well worth the visit. Good food and a very nice atmosphere. Not over priced.

During my stay in Maine, the inn keeper recommended Mable's. I was a little apprehensive as I entered and was punched in the face with a offensive stench.

We were looking for the "Maine lobster experience" and we found this seemingly family-run place. We drove a mile from downtown and found the casual restaurant sitting next to the street. There is also a small fishing port nearby and we saw the freshly caught Maine lobsters being loaded into barrels. Since we are coming for the fresh Maine lobster,... More

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
