Driving home and decided we were in the mood for seafood. Had never been to Gene's before but drove by and it looked very nice and seemed to be very busy. To our surprise you had to wait on yourself and place your order. It was worth it. The food was delicious and the price was very inexpensive. Will go... More

Just as we remembered it! We all had the lobster roll and the lobster meat was sweet and tender. Just move the smoking area away from the front entrance- no other complaints!

Every time I come up to New England to visit family I go to Gene's! Nothing fancy but you will surely enjoy the fish platters. Super fresh, not greasy, and very tasty. Enjoy..

I ordered a seafood platter and it was massive. I had no idea that it was a platter for two. The platter was very good. I loved the scallops!! I will return.

I'm usually skeptical of restaurant "famousness," but this place appears to have earned its moniker, starting with the fact that it's family-owned and has been in business for many years. Many fried seafood places have a frenetic air, which of course can be exciting sometimes, but even with 6 people in line and six others waiting for their orders, the... More

I haven't been there for say 4 years and noticed new people working there, not the usual family. I informed the... More

Very casual place. Not my favorite. I prefer the Fish House or Fathoms. Clam cake and fried foods were pretty greasy, you can do better. I like going to Mattapoisett, just 10 minutes east and try Turks. Nice fresh seafood!

In an area rich with great seafood restaurants this place is just average at best. Most of the food is on the greasy side and the batter is a little too heavy on their fish and chips. They haven't evolved in 40 years and still make things the old school way which isn't the healthiest in my opinion. There are... More

My girlfriend and I returned to Seafood Heaven... (doing business as) Gene's Famous Seafood. We have been all over the area sampling seafood platters. Gene's by far has surpassed many... in quality, quantity, and price. The people there are friendly and the food is cooked to perfection. My girl and I had a hard time finishing the seafood platter we... More
