We come from N.E. and this is one of the better places for fresh N.E. seafood around. Service was great and no one could ask for better food. Location might be little hard to find, but not impossible. Well worth the trip.

It's a plain jane place but it delivers what you want. Service prompt and friendly. I keep remembering my days as a waitress and appreciate good service. The fish was great too.

We love New England Eatery. Service is always outstanding and the prices are fantastic as well. Really enjoy the chowders and fried clams. They serve sushi grade ahi tuna as an appetizer. Whenever we found ourselves in the area we love to stop in for a bite.

We have been coming here for years to have their whole belly clams. This visit on 12/27/14 the whole belly clams were barely more than clam strips. I realize this may be what they were able to obtain but wish they had the integrity to warn people that the clams were anorexic with minuscule bellies.

If I am absolutely desperate for some fried seafood I'll go here, but I always eat outside because the inside section doesn't have a single window which ordinarily wouldn't be too bad even for a place right across the street from the beach, unfortunately the interior decor is horrid. I doubt its been updated in twenty years. Its also inexplicable... More

Visited today and was thoroughly pleased! The clam strips, belly clams, onion rings were wonderful! Clam chowder and lobster bisque were the best I've ever had! Server Debbie was awesome! Definitely will be on our to do list next time we visit Florida!

First night in the Melbourne area and this place was recommended by the locals. it was said that people drove from miles away to enjoy authentic New England fish/lobster/clams. Yes, the place was packed when we arrived so that's always a good sign, right? The interior decor is indeed sparse with tables & chairs from the 50's. Definitely not a... More

I enjoyed lunch at this establishment on Sunday last - and ordered the clam strip basket. I have had this lunch before at this restaurant and it is always noteworthy; this time was no exception. They deep fry them and never overdo them -- they are chewy and very tasty. They have to be freshly caught to be this good;... More

We visited the Treasure Museum in Sebastian and were looking for lunch. The staff suggested this New England type seafood spot about 10 miles north. Being from New England we gave it a shot. Excellent lunch specials and who can beat $1.00 drafts. Their fresh onion rings are the best I have had in a long time. In you are... More
