I'm a New Yorker who visits Kennebunkport often and typically eat at Mabel's for lunch or dinner. Mabel's food is excellently prepared and consistently wonderful. I normally get their clam chowder and a fish dish ... Salmon , halibut or a fried combo.

My lobster new-burg was the best I've tasted. The best was the look on my wife's face when they brought out their signature 2 lb lobster smothered in shrimp! We sat in the sun on the porch. Had a great time.
