Loved Mabels. Lots of photos of Bush family there. Entree with split lobster and 6 shrimp poached in butter and garlic was delicious and plentiful. Good slaw and fries. Would definitely go again. They are now closed for the season.

We were told we had to go here, and we would concur. It’s a famous local place and they’re known for their seafood (it was great). Service was a tad slow, but they were busy.

Mabel's was recommended by our inn keepers and is one of the Bush family's favor places to dine. It's a small quaint place to dine. We enjoy lobster and chowder amongst a few other menu items.
