Good Seafood restaurant?

Hi all - Will be in Kennebunkport for two days with our family of four. Two kids 15 and 11 and they love seafood. We will probably eat a dinner in Wells as we are visiting relatives but also would like to try something in Kennebunkport. Anything casual would be good with great seafood (the family loves lobster). Recommendations for Wells, Kennebunkport or Ogunquit will work. Thanks.

Are you looking for a place overlooking the ocean or does it not matter? There are so many good seafood places it's hard to decide, but if you're with a 15 and 11 year old, I'd suggest the following:

The Fisherman's Catch in Wells is really good. Very casual and the seafood is freshly caught.

Kennebunkport. The Clam Shack right on the bridge, however, you sit and eat outside....it's a tad on the expensive side, but well worth it.

Ogunquit...Barnacle Billy's in Perkins Cove.

Thank you and no it does not have to overlook the water.

If you are there on a Wed. night go to the all you can eat lobster at Cpt'n Hooks in Wells Maine.

Our first stop will probably be Mables for their stuffed lobster. Expensive but so worth it. You'll need a reservation.

So manny choices!

Then if you are driving go to Cape Pier Chowder House. Wow, can't wait to get back there. Awesome fresh seafood brought in from the dock below, no frills picnic tables but awesome ambiance sitting on a deck over where lunch just came from!waterhttp://www.capeporpoiselobster.com/t-capepier.aspx

We ended up eating out at the Bull n Claw (I think) the first night with my Aunt who is from Wells. It was a friday night and we had just checked into our hotel so hard to find anything. It was a descent meal. On Saturday, my aunt took us to Lords Harbor and it was a great meal. She goes there alot so we were seated right away. Had the best lobster roll I have ever had. Can't wait to go back again. There are so many restaurants that we wanted to try but were only there for two days. Also, had lunch at Barnacle Billy's which was good with a nice view and had clam chowder at the Nubble Lighthouse takeout (foxy's) window which was wonderful. Stayed at Turbat's Creek Lodge - very clean, nice little place only bad thing were the beds were a bit uncomfortable but would stay there again.

The first place we head to dinner in Kennebunkport is Alisson's Restaurant, right in Dock Square. We love the Seafood there. The next day we'll have a Lobster Roll at Mables, out on the front porch.
