Hometown dining at its best

This is a great place to eat breakfast in Lynn. They serve big portions for reasonable prices. Service is really friendly and personalized. Dress is casual. There are a ton of locals who frequent the place. Would definitely return. Reminded me of going to a NJ diner.

This is a cozy restaurant, very small, but they have good food. They always accommodate a group of 6-8 of us and make the meal a joy.

Was nearby, and I had heard pleasant things about it, but wasn't thrilled after my visit. The high spots were the Greek items on the menu, fresh vegetables, and desserts.

This is one of the few waterview restaurants in the area so we parked out front and decided to give it a try. We weren't greeted at the door although the owner and about 6 people were sitting at the first tables. We walked in and sat ourselves with a view of the pond. I noticed the booth across from...

I was visiting Lynn, Massachusetts for my Grandma's funeral when my uncle insisted on picking up some of Hayward's famous clams. I wasn't feeling hungry when they arrived, but after the first bite I was in nirvana. The tarter sauce that comes with them is really good too. Plan to pay a lot for these clams because they're worth every... More

I've been here a few times to this unassuming little place. I tend to go during off hours because it is small and it is what my schedule allow. Shiny Hardwood interior making it feel like you're in a boat of some sort. The food is good although I find some items pricey. Very friendly staff. If you ask for... More

If you are lucky you can get the seat by the window with a view of the pond.The chicken fingers are great and the pancakes are better.

I went for takeout, Nice place, friendly service, but the fried clams had no flavor, and the potatoes had no seasoning. It was like hospital food. The clientele when I was there were in their 70s and 80s and all seemed to be regulars. TV on during dinner, definitely not a fine dining experience!

I've seen this restaurant since I was a kid and finally got to eat here. I was NOT disappointed. It's got a cool view of Sluice Pond, and some pretty decent Fried Clams, for the times I don't feel like driving all the way up to Ipswich. (and believe me I'm VERY Fussy about my Fried Clams) I've had a... More
