We stopped by restaurant when they just opened for lunch about 11:30 am to secure a Saturday evening reservation. Mentioning that we were shopping across the street and decided this was better than calling; a lovely silver haired lady led us inside with the warmest welcome we had received in Kennebunkport area! She and two men were excited to reserve... More

We have had several meals at Mabel's over the years, it seems to be getting good again after changing hands a few times. I had a Lobster that was baked, cleaned and split open, with 6 very large gulf shrimp with garlic/lemon and pepper on it. My wife had a dish with lobster, shrimp, scallops; both meals were excellent with... More

I found the lobster roll tasteless . Mabel's is suppose to be known for their famous lobster rolls. I almost wonder if it is under new ownership. I will not be returning

A friend and I recently spent a few days in the Ogunquit/Kennebunkport area and had heard that Mabel's Lobster Claw was a favorite restaurant of the Bushes, so we decided to give it a try (if it's good enough for a former president, it must be OK!) So we stopped by for lunch. Since we wanted something light (so that... More

Cozy place. 7 adults and 3 children had a terrific lunch at Mabel's Lobster Claw in Mid May. Everyone was happy (and full) ! The clam chowder was VERY good and was enjoyed by all who ordered it. The crab cakes, fried haddock, calamari, and even spaghetti and meatballs were tasty and were gobbled up quickly. The service was fine... More

Not fancy but enjoyed the food and drinks. The waitress was a college kid that was very good and friendly. I would go back.

Nine of us recently had dinner here celebrating our annual sibling holiday. We carefully selected Mabel's based upon several recommendations. Perhaps our expectations were a too high but here is the truth. Our waitress was good, but was too quick. We felt very rushed. Six of our nine meals were overcooked. None of us was otherwise pleased with the food.... More
