Definitely will be returning. Great food and great service equals Happy Diners. Stuffed lobster was wonderful. Just the right amount of food for the money.

We ate here on our first visit to USA in 2001,so it was good to find Mabel's still thriving! It's a busy place,so a good idea to reserve a table for dinner especially at weekends. We both had The Duchess,a lovely mixture of scallops,shrimp,and lobster...More

This is NOT a four star restaurant. If you are looking for a very, very casual place that serves typical Maine seafood that is just average than Mables is the place for you. The clam chowder was a notch above Campbell’s, and my lobster special...More

Mabel's is a quintessential Maine dining establishment. While not directly on the water, sitting outside along Ocean Avenue you felt as if you were. The menu's lobster offerings were numerous and varied, from the full shore dinner (two size lobsters) to lobster fra diablo.

We loved Mabel’s so much we went back the next day! We had blueberry pie both times! We had the Lobster Savannah & it was exceptional. A little pricy for the modest accommodations but ITS LOBSTER! Lovely outdoor atmosphere.

Food was very good, server was excellent, food was pricey, and I left a 20 % tip and found out later Gratuity was added and I wasn't told, you might like to tell your customers that instead of of getting totally taken to the cleaners.

This place was recommended by our hotel staff. It was a great place to eat. Staff was great. Had the lobster roll and be sure to try the French onion soup.

We stopped to eat at Mabel's on the recommendation of a hotel nearby. It is homey and very authentic, right up to the pictures of President Bush and family. We had fried haddock and scallops and a lobster roll for lunch. It was more than...More

Sit outside, roadside, with a glass of wine and enjoy a lobster in a superb setting. We were told that this was the best place to eat in Kennebunkport and we do not disagree. It is actually a mile from the town but you can’t...More

We called about 7 pm, and they said yes the reservations were needed, we were there in 5 minutes and they had tables open. I believe they do take out as well. If you know you want to go, I would make it and walk around the... More
