Great lobster and steak. Nice little place that feels a little like a throwback to simpler times; but the food is tasty and not overpriced. I certainly recommend it

"Very, very good cheeseburger" my daughter says. The lobster roll is the best -- better than Clam Shack -- and the fries are good ( not great). Nice place.

We were told the President has eaten here, so we expected high prices but great food. The prices were as expected; the food was definitely NOT. I had to ask for a spoon for my spaghetti and got one still crusted with bits of something, the chicken Parmesan was barely average and the whole meal was what you'd get at... More

We ate here twice while visiting Kennebunkport. Their Clam Chowder and Lobster Roll are the best! Service was also very good.

Our family had outdoor seating at this small restaurant within walking distance of the historic Colony Hotel. The lobster and seafood were excellent. Our daughter was happy with the pasta option. Reservations recommended.

Went for lunch, my fish sandwich was alright but my girlfriend really liked the steamed lobster. Very hard to find parking, and not sure it was worth it.

Mabel’s sits about a mile from Dock Square which is the main shopping area in town. The building is unassuming and there is little parking. The place is small with a few outside tables located next to the street. We had a bloody mary which was just OK, the clam chowder and we each had a lobster roll. The chowder... More

We went for lunch, I ordered a lobster salad at $27. It was 3 tomato slices, 3 cucumbers, a little lobster sprinkled over lettuce leaves. I would be humiliated if I was this restaurant to charge such a ridiculous price and the service was just as bad.

Lobster roll with just the right balance of mayo and sangria. Second year in a row eating here over our annual weekend visit and glad we did. Seating outside is limited but excellent for people watching, though the inside seemed well air conditioned.

We have been going to Mabel's for years and have never been disappointed. This trip we went twice once for lunch and once for dinner. Both meals were perfect. For lunch we had the chowder and the lobster roll, perfection! For dinner I had the lobster special that was a perfectly prepared lobster with 6 huge expertly cooked shrimp. My... More
