We've vacationed in Saco, ME for many years and we ALWAYS look forward to getting food at Huot's. My husband's fave is the Seafood Chowder and mine are the Fried Scallops. You have the option of calling ahead or stopping in to order take-out, or you can sit inside the full service restaurant. We always get it to go and... More

I can't believe I lived 15 minutes from this place for five years and didn't know about it! Tried it for the first time on personal recommendation and was totally blown away. We had the lobster roll and it was excellent. Great friendly service (sometimes a rarity during tourist season) and an excellent value. Large portions and bottomless drinks. Wish... More

First of all, order the fish chowder, just excellent. Service is good,serving size is to be expected. Mostly about fried seafood, I would say it is a family type atmosphere. Both our meals were good. If you are looking for that type of food, give it a try I am sure you will like it.

Four of us had dinner in this wonderful, friendly, informal and out-of-the-way restaurant. The food was well prepared. We had clam chowder, onion soup, salads as first courses. This was followed by lobster rolls - filled with succulent and plenty of lobster, Sides were fries or garlic red skin mashed potatoes. Two seniors ordered fried haddock and baked haddock from...

This restaurant is a nice little gem in Saco Bay, away from all of the action in Old Orchard Beach. The fresh aroma of seafood fills the air of this medium sized, cozy eatery. The restaurant looked very clean. The prices were very reasonable. Two of us had the lobster roll dinner, and the other two in our party had... More

Huot's is a fun place to take out of town guests. It has a scenic Camp Ellis location, decent parking, friendly staff, reasonable prices. Their menu is basically fried seafood and it is what it is--perfectly adequate, though nothing about it stands out as particularly special. Worth trying out at least once and then it's pretty much an individual decision... More

Despite a packed house, Huot's met our reservation for 8 people on time and professionally. This is a casual restaurant and the prices are reasonable. There were more than enough tasty onion rings for everyone to share and folks were happy with the generous amount of haddock and clam in the chowders we ordered. Personally, I prefer a thicker base,... More

We enjoyed our food and the service and the staff were great with accomodating us because we had a hadicapped person withus our wait time was very short and even other customers were friendly and helpful. It was just like being with family. We will return again when back in Maine.

The wife and I were in Maine for our annual visit and had heard last year from my Lyman ME native cousin that Huot's had great seafood and especially fried clams. We didn't make it last year so this year we ventured to the coast and were well rewarded. We love fried clams and have always ordered battered, but as... More
