Very good seafood.

We ate here on the waterfront on Dec. 30. We all got seafood of some kind. I had the fish and chips, a favorite, which I found to be light and crispy. Our party of four all enjoyed our food very much. It is a busy place with a homey atmosphere.

My daughter took me here for my birthday. First time there and I would go back and I also tell people when I got home to try it. Excellent food and great employees with a beautiful view. The service was great and friendly people.

Had been to Archers late last year and had an excellent experience. This year the restaurant was very noisy. Speakers were blaring blue music and no one seemed to be paying any attention. We had an excellent meal and the service was great. Portions we sizable and we otherwise enjoyed out visit. Staff was very attentive.

We visited Archer's for our Anniversary dinner. We waited more than 2 hours to be seated even after we'd called ahead and "reserved" a spot on the list. We were finally seated and waited more than 30 minutes to have our order taken, waited even longer than that to have it delivered to us...we had to leave and get our... More

I've been to Archer's many, many times for lunch and dinner, in all seasons and on weekdays and weekends. I've never had a bad meal there and the service has always been outstanding. I've had pasta, fish, soup, salads, sandwiches and burgers and I've always been pleased with their food, their staff and the view. This could be the best... More

We had been to Archer's twice before on visits to the area but had shied away recently after seeing some negative reviews. Our bad - we had a really good experience here for dinner. Service was excellent, drink and wine menu was fairly priced, and it is a wonderful venue. My wife had an exceptional meal - chowder, mussels, and... More

Archer's is a popular restaurant year round, but the food and the view of Rockland Harbor keep bringing me back. Yesterday I arrived at lunch time and decided to check out the sandwiches; I am usually a dinner customer and order the stuffed haddock, crab quesadilla, or one of the specials. My new favorite is the Lobster Reuben, an upgrade... More

My first couple of experiences with the restaurant were pretty good. Food was good and good portions. This restaurant is a little pricier than others in the area (for the same types of food). Unfortunately, on a Sunday evening in August we were very disappointed and have not returned since-- and probably won't for a long time. Before ordering, we... More

Being the first of November, it was quiet when we first arrived at the restaurant. We were served quickly by a pleasant waitress. The fish was delicious, portion and price were just right.
