Simply the best Stuffed Sole I've had anywhere. I order this meal everywhere and yesterday had the best Stuffed sole at Mabel's. Portion was generous, service was quick. The stuffing had the most lobster meat I've seen in a similar dish. Make reservations if you think it might be busy. We got there early and it soon filled up for... More

Having arrived at the inn across the rd quite late in the evening it was a case of dump the cases and source some dinner. Mabel's was 100 yards up the rd so we piled in, crab cakes and peanut butter ice cream pie to follow ( a local treat ) and we were sorted. Special thanks to our waitress... More

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
