The food was good, but expensive. Same quality down the road for lesser. It was a busy night and we got crammed into a corner. Place was jammed though. Needs a bigger bathroom, the door slams into a guest table.

Good service; food is standard fare. Not exceptional. Salad was terrible. I would probably not return. Other good restaurants nearby.

We ended up here by default. I had the lobster Milanese. It cost $58 for a 2 lb lobster. There was very little lobster meat even in the tail. Most of the protein was the butterfly shrimp. It was raining when we went and it...More

Mabel’s lived up to its top billing from locals. The lobster is so fresh, it literally comes in on boats across the street! I got the plain lobster with drawn butter and my wife got the stuffed lobster. Both were amazing! The stuffed lobster were...More
