Great food and prices

Our family has been coming here for a number of years while on vacation and it is a favorite of ours. It is always packed and the service is great. You are better off calling ahead to get a reservation, as you could have a long wait otherwise. My Mother raves that this is the best clam chowder... read more

Our first time in Maine and we wanted a delicious seafood dinner and Huot's was perfect! The clam chowder was a different base than we we're accustomed to but it was amazing. Our salads were fresh and delicious and the main course was just perfect! The lazy man lobster was out of this world and my son's shrimp was perfection.... More

Huot's has a reputation for great seafood but it seems to have lost its way over the last few years. Everyone's seafood at our table was overcooked and the sides seemed a bit tired. Also, despite having a reservation we waited over 30 minutes for our table. Overall, it was a bit of a miss for us.

We stopped in for lunch because of the full parking lot...and the inside was families and seniors. A great sign! Chowder, sandwiches and fries all great and generously portioned. Hope to be back!

We were so impressed with the freshness of all our seafood orders. The Senior haddock meal was ample and very flavorful. I ordered the fish chowder and was very pleased that the milk base was not the thickened kind that many restaurants serve, it was so tasty with lots of fish pieces. The third diner ordered baked scallops which proved... More

It is simply the best FRESH, modestly priced, seafood restaurant I've been to in the 35+ years we have lived in Maine. Even I (with my German background) enjoy their French inspired Salmon Pie (only available on Fridays). The 45 minute wait in line confirms what the locals and knowledgeable tourist think of this gem!

Annual tradition - Huot's take out and sitting on the breakwater! We always order the same things because it's THE BEST- Clam Cakes, Fried Scallops, French Fries and Onion Rings! Wonderful family owned business! Must try!

Love, love love the fish sandwich. Hubby loves the lobster stew. We've never had anything we didn't love here. Great place for takeout when you have a big group.

Well, it could have been better... The place was packed and everyone was stressed. Our service was slow. The food was so so. Kinda greasy. But it is a fried seafood place. I don't think we will go back as it did not impress any of the 7 of us.
