Worth the ride!

I peddled my bike from the old port to have lunch at Susan's after reading the reviews here. I was not disappointed. My shrimp dinner was, fresh, and the breading and crispy and delicious, I am picky with my cole slaw and it was also above average. I plan to visit again.

These are jolly good fish and chips! We have struggled to find a good fish and chip shop in the USA which tastes like back home in England, but this one is great! It was delicious and fresh and even had english malt vinegar. :)

this place does everything correctly. it is full of locals. they serve great tarter sauce in mason jars. the cole slaw is some of the best you will taste here. there are tons of fried seafood places in maine that lack the beach/water view. get off the peninsula, ditch the sand- flea bitten shacks and eat where the locals eat.

My most favorite fish shack. Everything is delicious. I especially like the soups and the lobster rolls. It has a fun eclectic ambiance. My kids love it!

I don't believe I ever paid so much for so little in my life and that includes my first marriage! I ordered a seafood platter to include two items haddock and whole belly clams fried. I got 4 ounces of haddock and 8 clams no french fries and lousy cole slaw. All this for 15 dollars plus tax. , when... More

We were disappointed with everything we ordered. Haddock chowder tasteless - no seasoning what so ever and I suspect frozen fish. The fish served in fish and chips was frozen. French fries with generic cheap tasting ketchup . The place is dirty.

Quick good priced fried seafood. Relaxed atmosphere. Kinda like a summer picnic. The family and I were pleased and look forward to returning next time in Portland.

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!

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