We enjoyed eating a Mabel's Lobster Claw on our last night in Maine. It was a great dinner. We enjoyed the outside seating.

“Best deal for Lobster in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

We were looking for a casual but great seafood and found it at Mabel's. 2 pound Lobsters for $20! Great deal! The place gets packed so best to have a reservation. Well worth the wait if you have to wait. The Lobster Mac and Cheese was also a big hit! President Bush's favorite place!

“The best lobster in New England”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Mabel's is a Kennebunkpot icon, it is THE place to go for fresh seafood, especially lobster, while in town. They have a seasonal scheduled, closing from mid-October until spring, so be sure to ask if they are open before traveling out, but if they are open and you want really, really good seafood, stop in. It's a locals place, jeans are welcome. They serve Sam Adam's beer, along with other choices. Prices are what you'd expect for seafood, but not gouging. Enjoy!
