The title says it all…. This small place is not fancy, but it serves excellent lobster. It is a little on the pricey side but definitely worth it. I had lobster with mussels, they were fresh and perfectly cooked. The lobster shell was already cracked open, which was very convenient. I would definitely go back if I’m in the area.

Loved the atmosphere, loved the local conversation, even the parking of Mabel's....but the Lobster Savannah was like the main event of a pay-per-view fight! Absolutely amazing! I had previously seen a segment about Mabel's and the Savannah on the Travel Channel and it's representation doesn't hold a candle to the real thing. Great experience and amazing meal.

This small restaurant, away from the busy downtown of Kennebunkport, served excellent seafood. Technology is not a part of their service; they were unable to give each person a separate check--my only complaint. Service was good and the wait for food was very reasonable.

Mabel's was recommended to us by the owners of the place we were staying. We loved it! It's a relaxed, small environment...nothing fancy, though the clientele seemed a little "fancy." The staff was very friendly including setting up a booster seat in a chair for our 8 month old. The food was simple and delicious...the way food should be in Maine. The lobster was clearly fresh and steamed perfectly. If it weren't for the snooty people sitting next to us (very close to us) and the odd quietness of the place, it would have been absolutely perfect....but even those things couldn't ruin our dinner. Thanks so much for a great meal, Mabel's!

Recomended by the concierge at the Bed and Breakfast we stayed in my wife and i walked down to Mabels after first arriving to Maine to enjoy lunch. When you first arrive to the location you will not be blown away with decor or ambiance as the restaurant is more down to earth than posh eatery.

The food, however, was bite after bite of perfection. I enjoyed a crab cake salad that was fresh and delicious while my wife enjoyed her first perfectly cooked lobster of the weekend. The staff was pleasant and courteous and recommended other fine eateries in the area. This will be our fist stop, for lunch, on our next visit.
