What a surprise...never would have stopped

We were given a suggestion to have lunch at Susan's Fish n Chips. After driving by several times, cause we couldn't find it, we dropped in and ordered the large seafood platter. More than enough for two. We added the clam chowder and a drink. The chowder was one of the best ever....and the platter... read more

It used to be that Susan's was the place to go for excellent, fresh seafood at a reasonable price. No one did it better. Something changed since the spring and we have't had a good meal since. I always order the seafood platter- Fried haddock, sea scallops, shrimp, whole-bellied clams and french fries. A hug portion that provided me with... More

Skip all the high priced restaurants in Portland downtown district and go here which is about 10 minutes away.

Excellent seafood. Lobster roll and clam roll were perfect. Not fancy but great seafood. Don't pass this one by.

We were passing through Portland and wanted a quick place to stop for lunch. Based on the reviews, we chose Susan's. You place your order at the counter and someone brings the food to your table. Food was ready quickly and tasted delicious. Definitely a good place to have a quick, reasonably priced meal!

We ate twice at Susan's during our visit to Portland. It is out of the way and we liked that it was a local place away from the crowds. Our chowder order was wrong but we opted to eat it because we had traveled all day. The fried clams and scallops were good---clams better than the scallops (lacked the sweet... More

When you first drive up to Susan's Fish -n-chips looks are deceiving If you judged by what you see you would think its a terrible place to eat but once you go inside and get your meal you soon see that there is NOTHING terrible about it. The food is amazing and at a completely reasonable price. The staff is... More

I am a huge fan of whole belly clams. Susan's does a great job of serving them up just how I like them. Lightly breaded, and with homemade tartar sauce. I usually get a combination plate as the scallops are huge and sweet. As a former resident of Portland, I never used to tell people about Susan's because I didn't... More

I did some research before coming here and I agree with reviewers that said the storefront is not very attractive. It's actually right next to a mechanic shop and almost drove by it. So we tried to give this place the benefit of the doubt and not judge a book by it's cover since it had good reviews, but we... More
