Best place for lobster! So many choices but have it split with Shrimp or scallops - so good and delicious blueberry pie for dessert. Beware! the specials can be pricey and you don't know until you get your bill. ASK

My wife and I stopped in for lunch. The food was great and portions generous. The staff is super friendly. Be sure to make it a stop for a good meal.

Had all the usual dishes, steamers, lobster, chowder. Very popular. Better value would be next door at the lobster shop take away.

Take a step back in time and grab a meal at Mabel's. My wife and I adore this place and the food is fantastic. And you never know who you might run into there.

The whole lobster here is very good! I highly recommend! The parking can be difficult so get here early.

Our food was well prepared and very fresh. Service was great. Though a bit cramped, the atmosphere is friendly and conducive to making new acquaintances. A fun evening. Price is mid range, but again, the value was well worth the cost.
