This restaurant has gone steadily downhill in recent years. The only food which is even halfway decent is their fried seafood and that is, at best, average for the area. We vacation yearly in the immediate vicinity and have become steadily more disappointed. This summer I had broiled scallops and the only real flavor was salt. That's it. No garlic,... More

We had the lobster dinner and loved the food and the atmosphere. Great local spot just off the beaten path with better seafood than the regular deep fried seafood at any other local place. They were pleasant and even took our photo with the lobsters insisting we put on the required lobster bib. It was a great meal all around.

We've gone here a few times when I'm in the area. I wanted to comment on the Clam Chowder. It is not good at all. Everything else at this restaurant is wonderful but not that. It is watery and tasteless. Big disappointment. You can't beat the rest of their food. Clams, scallops, fish, shrimp, lobster...all great! If you are smart,... More

Hout's Seafood Restaurant is a but if a challenge to find, but once there it is a Gem. The seafood was fresh and plentiful, and the service was very good too. The prices were quite reasonable. After dinner we took a walk to the break wall behind the restaurant and the sights of the ocean and the nearby harbor was... More

The seafood was excellent. The fries mediocre. They don't offer a fresh vegetable - the night we were there it was picked beets or canned (maybe frozen) corn, cole slaw, fries, or garlic mashed. We arrived about 4:45 for an early supper and were seated right away. Otherwise,MIT sounded like reservations would be a must.

Since the closing off Wormwoods next door, Huots has really blossomed. We happened to arrive during the Early Bird time for dinner, and the place was packed, but the staff was quite adept at seating everyone within a short wait, and the patrons greeted each other with hearty waves and many smiles and handshakes all around. Our server was amazing...when... More

We had a great dinner at this resto just this past weekend. There was a line-up to get in, and we had to wait 50 minutes before we were offered a table. Food was like the majority of food in Maine: lots of fried fare, tons of fried potatoes etc.. But the fish chowder, haddock, clams and shrimp we ordered... More

We had a great meal at Huot's. Yes, the clam chowder was thinner than I'm used to, and there were more potatoes than clams. Reading the reviews now, I wish I had tried the fish chowder. With that said, it was quite tasty, and the rest of our meal was great. I loved the boiled lobster, other friends raved about... More

We had read a review that this place had the BEST chowder around. Not the case when we were there. It was watery, had more potatoes than clams, and tasteless to the point that it wasn't eaten. We shared a salad----parts of the lettuce was frozen, and it was just average. One in our party ordered the clam stew, which... More

Went for dinner with a group of 8, including 3 kids. The service staff was very accomodating. Dining room was casual, but well-maintained. The food was great all-around. No complaints from anyone in the group. High marks for the scallops and the haddock. Reasonably priced. They have a take-out window but no outdoor seating. Though, you can eat on the... More
