“Best seafood stop in mid coast Me.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

We have eaten there almost weekly since june this year and up to last week. Really great seafood and willing to cook it the way you ask. We always get single serve mixed seafood and it feeds us both. Shrimp single serve are my second choice. Always hot and we get take out. Really enjoy the service and food being ready when promised. Call ahead and less than 5 minutes and we are gone.

“Love this place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We always eat at the Sea Basket when in Maine. Both of us love the haddock chowder. Big chunks of haddock, very thick soup and great flavor.

I will say their prices are in line with restaurants with a water view so that might be a consideration for some people. Also be aware, customer service isn't their thing. It is order at the counter, give you a #, call your # and that's it. If you ask the person any questions at the counter, it really falls on deaf ears.

I hope to find out they will ship their haddock chowder because it is a craving of mine!!

“some of the best seafood in Maine...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We always visit this place at least a couple of times per year...have never been disappointed. Sometimes I split the fisherman's platter with my wife....I get the clams and shrimp...she gets the scallops and haddock. The food is always well fried but not greasy..it's a combination of the frying oil they use and fresh seafood.

“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

The food is great, and it has a family atmosphere. They have wonderful haddock, clams, and seafood combo meals. My daughter isnt into seafood, but she loves the chicken finger basket. So there is something for everyone. My 93 year old grandmother loves the chowders.
This restaurant has great food and you receive alot of food for your money
