Cape Elizabeth/South Portland - Fried Seafood and Ice Cream?

Hello - Looking for suggestions for a casual place to get fried seafood (and maybe a lobster) and ice cream in South Portland/Cape Elizabeth/Scarborough. The kind of place where you can show up after a day at the beach, order at the window and eat at a picnic table or in your car. Near the water would be great, but not necessary. We love Portland for food, but will not have the energy after running around after the kid all day on the beach to dress ourselves presentably for table service somewhere! Thank you.

  1. Salty Bay Takeout in Scarborough, the Pine Point neighborhood near the lobster pound.

    Then, Len Libby's Candy shoppe on route 1 for homemade ice cream, beats Beals by a country mile.

      Besides, you gotta see the giant chocolate moose.

    2. Despite the almost constant recs, Lobster Shack at Two Lights would fit the bill nicely.

        Just ate there.
        It's about three miles south of the Casco Bridge on route 77.
        They now take credit cards. Incoming tides provide a great water show on the tree-like rocks.
        Love the place.

      2. Kettle Cove ice cream on 77--great ice cream, and they were working on a clam shack/cafe/restaurant last time I was there, so it might be open now.

        1. Ken's Place in Pine Point, Scarborough is pretty dependable. Not sure if they serve ice cream, but like jackattack said, Len Libby's is only 10 minutes away.
