“Deeelicious”
Reviewed September 23, 2011

Great fried food. Indoor and outdoor seating. Yummy soups and salads, delicious seafood. Pet friendly outside with shady areas. We eat here all the time in the summer! The only downside is that the only view is of a chinese restaurant and a store. Friendly staff, and clean restaurant!

“Classic Seafood Restaurant”
Reviewed August 12, 2011

We have been going to Maine with the family for 15 years in both the summer and winter. One of the things we miss in the winter is stopping at the Sea Basket, as it is closed for the season. We look forward to having our first meal in Maine, traveling from the airport to Spruce Head, at the Sea Basket. My son, who does not like seafood, loves the fried scallops. My daughter loves the chowder, and my wife and I are partial to the fried clams. If you are traveling on Friday or Saturday on US 1, traffic is gong to be backed up anyhow, due the Red's Eats at the bridge, so do yourself a favor and stop at the Sea Basket.

“pASS THIS ONE BY!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed August 7, 2011

This place has the snottiest people working there! You walk in and immediately feel the disdain they have for out of towners *( they call us from aways) They do love your money but if they could take it from you without having to do anything they would like it much more, Walked up to the register and this 6 foot tall chick could'nt answer a question without giving me a nasty look.

Go anywhere else but here. their food wasn't even good and the stables were sticky and the place was filthy

“I don't know”
Reviewed July 30, 2011

We hit this place hungry. Love fried seafood, and we did note the pleasant non-greasiness, but it was super salty and not anything to get excited about. Saw the other reviewers' comments re seafood stews, etc. -- wish we'd gone this route instead, but it's not like they promote it. Atmosphere was bad, service is counter and wasn't friendly. Didn't go back.

“So good we went twice!”
Reviewed July 13, 2011

Great seafood in a very casual setting! The lobster roll was delicious - toasted bun and overflowing with moist and tender lobster meat - lots of big pieces and not too much mayo. My husband ordered fried clams the first visit and the mixed fried platter the second time. The food is breaded and fried to order - you can watch them prepare your basket while you wait. The platter was HUGE - really could feed two people. No plates or silverware and we ate at a picnic table in the shade near the parking lot, but this is DELICIOUS FOOD!
