Quaint, cozy and fun...this place delivers an enjoyable, casual dining experience in every way. Seems to be pretty crowded, usually, so plan ahead.

Fun casual place on Ocean Avenue! We went for lunch a week before it was to close for the season, and it was warm enough to sit on the porch. The lobster rolls were deelish and the slightly funky, unassuming nature of the place was...More

The lobster mac and cheese here is the best I've had! It's about an hour and a half from Boston and definitely worth the trip, along with the scenic drive.

My wife and I were in Kennebunkport October 20 - 22. We had heard excellent things about Mable's, so we walked the mile from our B & B to the restaurant. It is small, not a lot of ambiance, which, gave it a great feeling....More

I can’t say enough about the wonderful clam chowder. It was exceptional. I tried my first ever lobster roll and wasn’t too impressed. The lobster was chewy. The sandwich wasn’t seasoned well. I would not get the lobster roll again, but would definitely get the...More
