Went to Huot's for dinner and loved it! Seafood was great! Homemade clam cakes were amazing. Shrimp scampi was also fantastic, not too greasy or oily. Lobster was wonderful and reasonably priced. Only thing we didn't like was the clam chowder. Clams were fresh in the chowder, but this is not the thick creamy chowder we like. Chowder broth was... More

I would not call this fine dining, but the fried haddock and clams were very good and of high quality. The slaw and french fries did not match the quality of the seafood. The neighborhood is tiny shoreside homes similar in type to Old Orchard Beach just up the road. No water view from the restaurant, and all dining is... More

We dined here on a busy Saturday night. We only waited about 20 minutes. I had a clam cake and had the sea scallop diner which both were excellent! My husband doesn't like seafood so he had the chicken parm which he absolutely loved too. Our waitress was great also. We will definitely be coming back here when visiting maine... More

Huot's is still our favorite seafood restaurant. It is nearly time for their seasonal closing, so...we will be visiting as much as possible. The menu is mainly fish and seafood, but they have burgers, spaghetti, meatballs, chicken fingers, and more. The baked and fried haddock dinners are perfection. Best haddock chowder on the planet. Delicious clam chowder...lobster stew. The fries... More

We arrived In town late and we're looking for some seafood that wouldn't require a long wait and kid friendly. We hit the takeout window with two families and four kids. Dinner was fresh and ready in 10-15 minutes and we were on the breakwater enjoying a gorgeous sunset! Fried menu lots of choices for everyone. They have a sit... More

Huot's is a definite must to visit while at Old Orchard Beach. All seafood dishes are prepared fresh from the sea. Two of us ordered from the Senior options expecting small portions but we were pleasantly surprised when our meals arrived. The portions were very generous. Our waitress Marina was so pleasant and helpful. This will always be our first... More

Website does not mention need to call ahead for reservations... as a result, wait was 1 hr., 15 min.. Welcome feature is a variety of menu items available in smaller portions for seniors/children. Scallops were "just right" but only one side dish is included in senior menu (regular dishes come with two). Can be noisy at times because tables are... More

We went to visit the beach a little past Old Orchard and found this area. We were walking back from the rock pier area and saw people lining up waiting for the place to open. We thought, why not? Well, the line didn't lie. Great and affordable clam cakes, pints of fried fish or sandwiches, all delicious and made to... More
