“The seafood restaurant you dream about”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

When you think about going to Maine you think about finding that real, old fashioned seafood joint with classic decor and classic seafood dishes. Mabel's doesn't disappoint. All the favorites are there home cooked to perfection.Nothing fancy just good. From fried seafood platters to steamed lobsters you will be happy with your choice. Homemade pies complete the deal. Mmmmmmm

“Best lobster rolls in Kennebunkport!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

My husband had the lobster stew and loved it. I had a lobster roll which he coveted. Fortunately, there was enough for both of us. There was so much lobster and it was perfectly cooked. The service is great. The staff is friendly and helpful. This is our third year to eat there. The only downside is the lack of parking, but that is the story in Kennebunkport!!

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

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.

“A typical Maine diner with great seafood and friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

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.

“My, oh my”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

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!
