A Great Find

We were taken to Huot's by family who live locally and thoroghly enjoyed the experience. Who can resist Clam Chowder in New England and this was a good one if a little thick. Excellent Crab Rolls followed. The room is pretty and the staff charming and efficient. Worth going off the beaten track to... read more

Huot's is a not to be missed dining experience when visiting the southern Maine coast. It is located in Saco, more specifically, Camp Ellis, at the mouth of the Saco River. This family operated restaurant has been in business for years, and if you are looking for fine Maine fresh seafood, this is a gem! Great food overall although I... More

Huot's has become so popular with local people, that it almost feels like 'Old Home Night' when we visit. Now that reservations are possible, wait times are greatly reduced. It is a real treat to find reasonably priced Maine seafood, lightly fried or baked, served by knowledgeable, pleasantt waitstaff, that we are there every week, and truly celebrate when we... More

If you like fried seafood, this may be the place for you. Fried clams and clam cakes, both in batter. Clams were decent, but clam cakes were unexpectedly deep fried with batter coating. They were dry and tasteless. No amount of tartar sauce or cocktail sauce helped! And the noise level here was a turn off.

We visited last night with several friends. Food is just amazing! One friend had the steak and said it was in the top three best he's had. My wife had the chicken parmesan and loved it. I had the backed scallops and they just melted in my mouth! You have to get the onion rings to start your meal. WOW!... More

We always head to Huot's in Camp Ellis (Saco) on their first day of the season...and then we keep count of how many times we dine here until the close in the early fall. We were amazed at the crowd there today...the line started before 11 a.m. and was out the door. Must be a sign of yet another successful... More

You have to try the Lobster stew. It's a fantastic offering. Fried clams and scallops were perfectly prepared. Friendly family atmosphere and just steps from the beach. The owners are very friendly and treat everyone like they are family!

Situated where the Saco River meets the sea, this is an ideal restaurant to experience Maine seafood. The fried clams are some of the best around, as well as the broiled scallops. The broiled haddock is also excellent. The wait staff has always been very attentive, courteous and prompt. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Great place for casual dining and the seafood is always fresh with great prices. It is located in front of the beach so you can walk down to beach after you eat.

Too bad it is only a seasonal restaurant! Open late April til mid-September! Call ahead or be prepared to wait for a table! Without a doubt, the best seafood in the area! But, they also have great steaks for the landlubbers. Family owned and operated for many, many years! Can't go wrong with a visit here!
