Visited this past Sunday. Everything was so great.
The downside is there isn't much of any place to sit. There are a few picnics tables available and some benches with lobster trap type tables which are pretty low to be eating anything on.
The food is great but plan on digging in your wallet. We got a small box of scallops and the haddock lunch box which came with fries and a small cole slaw. We then purchased 2 sodas. We were pennies under $50.00.
It is probably not the place you want to take a family if you are on a budget, but in fairness to them it is Kennebunkport center, a beautiful tourist spot and every place and everything you do will be fairly expensive.
The food itself is worth the money but if you are a family on a budget it could get pretty expensive and a little difficult if you are looking to seat any number of people. Plus there are lines so that will give you an idea that space is a little tight seeing it is right on the road. For couples that that can squeeze in and spend a few dollars you will love the seafood.

If you want to have the most delicious fried clams or the best lobster roll you have ever had in your life - go to the Clam Shack!! SRO in the great open space but delicious food - Pricy - you will feel like you lost your wallet but it is worth every mouthwatering bite of delicious Maine seafood!

Stopped at this place while on a day trip to Kennebunkport. Had the lobster roll and it was very good. Lots of lobster meat on a very tasty roll. The preparation was a bit different from what we are used to but I have no complaints. There is outdoor seating and a few tables in the fish market that is attached to the shack. Prices are very reasonable for the quality. The fried clams and French fries also looked delicious. Definitely worth a stop here if you love seafood!

For when you really need the grease fix; I would recommend any of the fried food. limited outdoor seating; so better for a grab and dash- eat at home or at the beach. Scallops are great, as are clams.

Loved the lobster roll, absolutely gorgeous! One of the highlights of the trip and nice to sit and eat it near the river. Reasonable price as well.
