Looks and Feels Like an Old Fish House

We've been here twice in the last month. The first time was for lunch and the second time was for dinner. Both times I had the fried scallops which were really good, but here's the rub. The lunch portion and the dinner portion were the same size, but the dinner was $5 higher, so maybe you want to... read more

I can't believe the reviews , this place is terrible! When we first walked in we almost left because it stank so bad. The food was among the worst I've had in Brevard county. I would eat road kill before I would ever go back!

Great place for a New England transplant livings in Florida. Great New England style seafood and even makes you feel like you're up north. Friendly staff, decent food, nothing fancy just good New England seafood.

For those who truly enjoy NE style seafood then this is the place for you! Having tried many seafood restaurants throughout New England, I would have to say this restaurant compares with the best of them. Try some chowder or steamers, or a lobster roll, and I'm sure you'll definitely be satisfied. The seafood platters are also worth trying, they... More

If you eat here, you've gotta have the fish. We ate outside.....good service and good fish. The conch chowder was delicious.

Been there a few times now and never had a bad meal. Fresh fish with large portions and reasonably priced. Clams are cooked great, not rubbery. Cod is moist and delicious. Captains platter for two is almost too much. Almost! Great casual atmosphere and great place to watch a ballgame and have a few beers sittin outside. Worth a stop,... More

We went with a group of 8. Everyone was friendly and attentive. Good variety on their menu and big portion sizes, most had left overs. Very casual.

Friendly and busy. Lots of fried seafood mainly. Very good food. Not a fancy place. Kinda dated but welcoming. Nice outside area under roof but no scenery.

I was on a business trip and decided to take the scenic route - A1A. Stopped at N.E. Eatery & Pub. Julie, my server was more than a server. Definitely from the NorthEast, true to the New England feel. Such incredible personality that she made the food taste even better. Quick service. Healthy choices. Onion rings. A must. Smiley and...

We joined friends for dinner. They occasionally spend weekends at Melbourne Beach and eat at the New England Eatery every time. The restaurant is not fancy – but has that old Florida fish house charm. The New England Eatery is located on stretch of Route A1A that the developers have not yet found among beach houses and “Mom and Pop”... More
