We ate at Mabel's twice on our recent trip to Kennebunkport. It's a small restaurant right on Ocean Drive a short drive from Dock Square. we had the most delicious lobster dishes one evening, one being their lobster savannah and the other was the lobster special. The other night we had a fillet mignonette and a seafood casserole. We also enjoyed stuffed mushrooms and had a delicious blueberry pie and a double fudge cake with hot fudge sauce and vanilla ice cream. All the servers were very friendly. We were fortunate to have Justine both evenings but she is headed back to college. This is/was one of President George H W Bush's favorite restaurants in town. Can't wait to go back next summer.

Recommended in the 1000 places to visit book. Classic New England and worth the visit. Make a reservation because walk-ins can have a long wait. The Shore dinner was great...make sure you get the larger lobster (hard shell with much more meat).

Heard about Mabel's on TV...some show about the "manliest" dishes from across the country had their big lobster dish featured on it. Being that I was going to be in the area for vacation, I made Mabel's the chosen destination for lobster. Drove the scenic route to get there with a friend that had never eaten lobster before. Wish I had stopped at any of the 100+ other lobster places along the way...

Our lobster was overcooked, overpriced and my friend's lobster was found to be pregnant. Not good.

We recently visited Kennebunkport and fell in love with the quaintness and hospitality.
We read about this restaruant on Trip Advisor and thought we might visit; however when it was actually recommended by the tour guide during our lobster tour, we decided it was a definate.
Thankfully the experience lived up to the hype. I and my family enjoyed wonderful lobster and my husband is still raving about the Lobster Savannah!
We will definately be back.

Had lobster every day of our 8 day trip to Newport and Kennebunkport, and the lobster rolls at Mabel's were the best of all. Friendly attentive service, particularly from Garrett, made this a great experience both times we ate here. Highly recommended!
