Not the most salubrious of restaurants but what fantastic food. If its good enough for ex Presidents its good enough for us all. Gets very busy so booking or eating early is a good tip. The lobster is to die for.

We have been coming here for over 20 years and nothing changes. Great seafood (the best steamers in Kennebunkport) along with friendly service. This is a Kennebunkport institution.
During high season it is best to make a reservation.

We stopped in Kennebunkport just for this restaurant. It was absolutely out of this world. The Ipswich clams were sweet and delicious. The stuffed mushrooms with lobster and melted provolone were excellent. We had the lobster Milanese and lobster savannah. Both lobsters are broiled rather than steamed. The lobster savannah is a Newburgh sauce with sea scallops, shrimp, and mushrooms inside a two pound lobster. It was marvelous! This was the best meal on the trip! Well worth the price!

Looking for basic fried fish dinner, this is the place. Very basic. Service is Ok, food OK and service is Ok. You won't walk out and say it was terrific, just OK.

We celebrated our 36th anniversary in Kennebunkport, Maine and ate at Mabel's twice. I had a two pound lobster split down the middle, for easy access, with six baked jumbo shrimp on the lobster and it was fantastic!! My husband had the "Savannah" which they are known for and it was delicious too. That was our anniversary dinner. Because of the wonderful dinner, casual atmosphere, and friendless staff, we visited again and my scallops were excellent. Mabel's is where the locals go and it is excellent food! Hope you enjoy as much as we did and you won't go broke!!
