If you want affordabe seafood, then this is the place

Fried shrimp and haddock are great, but not so much the clams. The onion rings are really yummy as well, but the Cole slaw was lacking. Overall, affordable and decent, and if you want to eat what the locals rat, then come on down!

Susan's serves a lovely Clam Chowder, Haddock Nuggets, Clam Cakes to name a few of the menu items I have enjoyed. I highly recommend Susan's Fish-n-Chips for a great Maine Seafood Experience...........

Another good place to sample New England style seafood. Good selection. Clean, fresh cooked and delicious food. I recommend the fried clams!

My husband's and my take out order of haddock nuggets and fried scallops was extremely disappointing! The nuggets were greasy and tasted more of beer than fresh haddock. And the fried scallops tasted and smelled so strongly of ammonia they were completely inedible. I cut open every one of the scallops and they all smelled of ammonia fumes. I researched... More

I have to say that my wife and I each had the same meal, the lobster rolls. We have had lobster rolls from Bar Harbor to Cape Cod and this one was loaded with lobster meat and a little lettuce beneath it on a toasted frankfurter roll. The only issue we had was the meat was dry. Normally there is... More

I have been going to Susan's for years. It would be easy to drive right by and never notice it on Forest Ave. That would be a huge mistake. It is located in an old service station, but the fried seafood and sides are excellent. Other seafood like the fried haddock, clams, lobster roll and fried...very good and prices are... More

It's a dirty little hole in the wall that used to be a service station but their fried clams are pretty darn good. If you don't mind the dirt enjoy yourself, my wife won't even go here because of the sticky tables and dirty atmosphere but I just order the clams to go and enjoy.

This was our second visit, last one was last time in Portland. If they have it, get the fried lobster tail on a stick. It is the whole tail from a small lobster (I would guess from a one-pound lobster) Price was $4.95 (I would guess that it has as much meat as a $10-15 lobster roll) My wife had... More

We went on a warmer than normal day and this place had no AC. I was about to just have lunch inside until I noticed a side door that has an outdoor eating area. It was much cooler under the umbrellas. The super sized fried seafood platter for 2 was very good and all we could eat. Don't go here... More
