Very friendly staff no frills dining. This is not a fancy place but it appears the locals love it and the lobster and shrimp dishes were very tasty.

We cannot return to Kennebunkport without going to Mabel' s Claw. Their lobster dinners are the best!! Fantastically seasoned. The amount of food you get for the price is excellent. Can't go wrong!!

The service was absolutely spot on, small dinning area but just right for small party of five. The food was wonderful the lobster was so sweet and delicious we each had a variety of menu options and each one was excellent. The blueberry pie was an excellent choice for dessert. Will definitely make the trip to Mabel's again next time.

Had an excellent lunch at Mabel's of clam chowder and lobster roll. They were able to make the lobster roll without mayo due to allergies. The lobster was sweet and plentiful. While not cheap, prices were comparible with other places in Maine. It is a local place with local ambiance.

When you think of Maine and the perfect place to get chowder and lobster, this is one of the best. We didn't want the frills of a NYC restaurant, we wanted great food and vibe. 2 lb lobster was delicious.

We had the shoremans dinner which was a 1 lb lonster, steamers, clam chowder and fries and slaw. Very filling, lots of food but if you are looking for inspired cooking this was not it. Not complaining, just expected better quality.

My husband and I stopped in here when we were staying in Kennebunk for some pie. This was the best blueberry pie I've ever had!! I'm an ice cream fanatic and the pie was so good that I did not think that it needed the ice cream. My husband got the raspberry and also really enjoyed it! If you go... More

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
