Town's Staple?

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. I must have gotten used to it because I didn't smell it any more. The service was fast and friendly. I ordered the lobster mac n cheese to... read more

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

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
