Great fried seafood

We don't have fried food very often but found the food at this restaurant very enjoyable. We had the seafood platter (fries, clams, scallops and fish). The clams were good, but the scallops were really amazing. This is fast food service so do not expect great comfort. They don't even serve the food... read more

Here is my summary of Marc's: A fried clam shop in a strip mall that serves clam strips when they claim to serve whole clams. Shimmering mediocrity.

Glad I am not the only one that thought the order of clams was small. Ordered it as take out as that seems the only option. There are tables but the people waiting on orders are standing there with their butt in your face. Ate at Marc's years ago and the order was huge. I won't go back... I'll drive... More

Smallest fried clams portion I have ever got anywhere. I could have fit the portion in the palm of my hand. Oh and it was 14.67. We were shown a bag for the portion size and then given a tiny tiny plate inside the bag. Felt extremely ripped off. We should have got the hint when we saw the prices... More

Heard from locals that Marc's was THE place to go for fried seafood. They were right. Delicious, crispy, naturally sweet clams. They need no tartar sauce or ketchup. The homemade French fries were delicious. Had to have the poutine with fresh cheese curds and were not disappointed. Anne-Marie was genuinely gracious and friendly. The homemade donuts light and delicious. Will... More

Okay when we originally wanted to go to Marc's it was because my husband wanted fried clams and we were told by a few locals that this was THE place to go. Unfortunately for us into was Monday and they are closed Mondays. On our return to Moncton from a round trip of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and P.E.I., we... More

It used to be in the Maritime provinces that clams were a healthy size and one clam with batter was wonderful, and about twenty decent size clams were a regular portion. This place cuts five clams in about fifty small pieces and passes it off as a portion that costs $10.95 plus tax. Also I have never seen onion rings... More

I had their Fish and Chips. Fish was a pleasant Golden Brown not that dark brown you get at some other places indicating the oil was old or the temperature was too high. Fries were home made. All in all very good fish and chips. More expensive than some of the other take outs but fish portions were big and... More

I ordered the clam/scallop combo and the scallops were perfect! Unfortunately some of the clams had some grit. For the most part they were delicious though. I would try again.
