The History of Huot's
During the midst of the Great Depression, Adelard J. Huot and Doris Corriveau Huot purchased Huot's Seafood Restaurant from Albert Huot in the year 1935. Doris wasted no time making her mark on Huot's. She quickly originated the recipes for the onion rings and clam cakes, as well as the batters that coat the seafood before they are cooked and served. We have cherished these recipes and take great pride in announcing that they are still used today.
The business was then handed down to the two sons in the family, Adelard O. Huot (Del) and Roger Huot. In 1997, Roger bought out Del's shares to become sole proprietor and he continued to manage Huot's with his wife Rachel Souliere Huot.
In 1999, after 49 years in the restaurant business, Roger sold the restaurant to his daughter Denise Huot Gelinas and son in law Gerry Gelinas who have been running the business ever since. Going on their thirteenth season as owners, Gerry and Denise still value the traditions set by the Huot's who managed before them.
