When in Kennebunkport you must eat here. And if they have blueberry pie save a little room for that. Just make reservations or you won't get in.

The prices were rather high but the food definitely justifies it. We each had the 2 lb steamed lobster special with 6 butterfly shrimp and two sides for $52 each. Absolutely delicious. Mabels blueberry pie ala mode is worth the trip alone!
