“Haddock chowder was wonderful”
Reviewed 6 October 2011

We had just arrived in Maine and were to tired to to go exploring so decided on this place. Both of us wanted clam chowder, which they do not offer so had the haddock chowder. It was great and really the best we found in our 3 weeks in Maine. My biggest complaint with this place is the staff are not friendly and the prices are the same as if one is eating at a restaurant with a water view.

“Great food, good prices, ample portions!”
Reviewed 28 September 2011

We actually did a take out. We own a business locally, and both of us were too tired to go out. The person who answered the phone, was helpful in making decisions, and gave us an accurate time frame as to when it would be ready. Staff was pleasant and polite, and our order was done right. It was still hot when we arrived home and it was good! We are repeat customers there, and we are locals.

“Deeelicious”
Reviewed 23 September 2011

Great fried food. Indoor and outdoor seating. Yummy soups and salads, delicious seafood. Pet friendly outside with shady areas. We eat here all the time in the summer! The only downside is that the only view is of a chinese restaurant and a store. Friendly staff, and clean restaurant!

“Classic Seafood Restaurant”
Reviewed 12 August 2011

We have been going to Maine with the family for 15 years in both the summer and winter. One of the things we miss in the winter is stopping at the Sea Basket, as it is closed for the season. We look forward to having our first meal in Maine, traveling from the airport to Spruce Head, at the Sea Basket. My son, who does not like seafood, loves the fried scallops. My daughter loves the chowder, and my wife and I are partial to the fried clams. If you are traveling on Friday or Saturday on US 1, traffic is gong to be backed up anyhow, due the Red's Eats at the bridge, so do yourself a favor and stop at the Sea Basket.

“pASS THIS ONE BY!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 7 August 2011

This place has the snottiest people working there! You walk in and immediately feel the disdain they have for out of towners *( they call us from aways) They do love your money but if they could take it from you without having to do anything they would like it much more, Walked up to the register and this 6 foot tall chick could'nt answer a question without giving me a nasty look.

Go anywhere else but here. their food wasn't even good and the stables were sticky and the place was filthy
