Yummy fried clams! Not strip clams, but the real thing! They also offer fried fish, shrimp and scallops. A good "fish shack", with seating!

I'd always passed by the Sea Basket in the summertime because it was so busy. Here in April, it's still busy, but that only means the locals love it. I stopped in twice. Once for fried clams and the second for haddock. I've eaten hundreds of baskets of fried clams but I have to say, the ones I had at... More

Great sea food and chicken nuggets . The best scallops around . Onion rings are homemade and yummy. They have large sea food platters enough for two people to share .

While traveling on Route 1 we were looking for a quick lunch and stopped here, as there were lots of cars. You order at the counter and wait for your number to be called. It is a clean, simple restaurant. Basic seating in booths. I had a haddock sandwich with coleslaw and potato wedges. The sandwich was good, coleslaw okay,... More

We were headed on an excursion and needed to find some dinner and a place that would be quick. The grand kids, my daughter and I each had something different. We were all full with no room for dessert!

If you're just looking for delicious local seafood at the best price available, this is it. The atmosphere...well, there is an atmosphere. It's a little plain. You can eat outside although there's no view because it's a mile or so away from the water. The service is great. Very consistent, we've been going for years and it's always been the... More

This is a must go place. It is not on the water but conveniently on Route 1 in Wiscasset. While waiting in traffic a perfect place to have lunch. The haddock is wonderful along with all the other offerings.

Not cheap, but worth visiting, if you fancy sea food (or just fish with vegs) - really delicious sushi or sea food dishes, options to share for two or four, great choices and assortment. You won't regret!

The restaurant has a very down-home atmosphere. You order at the counter and pick up your order when ready. There are booths and tables, plus tables outside during warm weather. I love crab cakes and ordered a plate with one crab cake, french fries and coleslaw and a coke for $10.00 The crab cake was fresh, lightly breaded on the... More

Wiscasset's local version of a fast food restaurant. No frills, just well prepared seafood in a very casual setting (or take out, many locals just call ahead and pick their seafood up). The price is right and the local seafood was prepared properly. Service was friendly and quick.
