The Lobsters were large and tasty. We got the 2 lb lobsters and were very happy with our dinner and the service. Get yourself some homemade Blueberry pie for dessert!

Wow, what a delicious dinner! My family of 4 enjoyed the lobster special at Mabel's, all our meals were delicious! Yummy sides and great service! My one regret was not being able to return for lunch!

Everything is fresh and good here. Friendly, nothing fancy, priced OK. Ambiance is for a good bowl of chowder and not a surprise engagement. Seating is tight and limited, but kids don't mind at all. Desserts are generous and often shared. Family run business that's a great fit for other families.

Had to take elderly parents here. As they are big fans of the Bush family. Sat in the corner with the Bush photos. Parents were thrilled. Service was great. Meals were very tasty. Clam chowder was good. Lobster was huge and very good. Would definately return.

Called in here for lunch on a recent trip to Maine and was not disappointed. As it was lunch I ordered Mabel's Special Roll and it was amazing. So much Lobster!!

My wife and I had one of the BEST meals we have ever had at Mabel's. Truly amazing. We traveled the NE for a week and it was far and away the best meal we had on the trip. If we are ever in the NE, we would surely go back and take friends.

Its a lobster place. Order the lobster. And a Shipyard Beer (from Portland, ME) Then order the pie - home-made and delicious. Great atmosphere - feels like a family-run place where everyone enjoys working

Mabel's was EXACTLY what we were looking for: plain Maine. AWESOME food. Kind service. Good drinks. Did I mention the food was terrific? Of course, we had lobster rolls. And they were so fresh and perfectly dressed. We split a piece of homemade Maine blueberry pie which was fantastic. And, to top it off, we came back for dinner for... More
