My parents introduced me to this restaurant during my most recent visit to Maine. It was snowing and cold, but inside Susan's, it felt like the summer. Picnic tables and lobster pot decorations adorn the inside. Large garage doors gave me the sense that in...More

Susan’s is a MUST when visiting Portland! The seafood is incredibly fresh. I ordered the shrimp roll with French fries and a side of crab cakes. The crab cakes were seasoned perfectly and melted in your mouth. The shrimp was lightly battered and melted in...More

Not a very fancy place it is in three old garage bays combined into the restaurant. We ordered the haddock and scallops plate and it was cooked perfect. They nailed it some places over cook not here. Would highly recommend.

Susan's has been frying up traditional New England seafood and chips for as long as I can remember. At least thirty years, plus. Located on busy Forest Ave, about 2.5 miles from the downtown tourist areas, this place really doesn't stand out. In fact, it...More

We went out of our way to go to Susan's for a lobster roll after reading good reviews. It's a GARAGE! Literally a garage with picnic tables. The lobster roll was so so. Some of my lobster seemed to be frozen. Not much flavor Employees...More
