Great, local, on the Water

This is a bustling and very enjoyable restaurant right on the river in Marshfield. Especially fun for lunch on a sunny day. The service is quick and friendly and the decor very simple.

We dine here frequently with family and friends and are always pleased with our meals. The portions are large and fairly priced. The service is consistently exceptional. Some of our favorites are the calamari appetizer, clam chowder, and fresh mussels. For dinner we have enjoyed the jumbo lobster roll, shrimp Colleen and lazy man's lobster pie. Great for couples and... More

We hadn't been to the Bridgewaye in years, but had good memories of fine seafood and a friendly environment. Even though it was a very snowy night, the place was packed; our wait was about 20 minutes, which was half the time we'd been quoted (nice surprise!). Three of us ordered the Chef's Special Shrimp, which was absolutely delicious: big,... More

When we travel to Marshfield, MA, we always (must) go to the Bridgewaye for a great seafood lunch or dinner. This is probably the brightest and most cheerful restaurant on earth. Big picture windows let daylight in and views of the water and boats. Great attentive service. Very popular with locals and tourists (year round) so get there early. New... More

The food here is fantastic. Have been here may times and never had a bad meal. It is always very busy. Small but nice bar area.

In a town by the ocean seafood has to be good. The atmosphere is great. Either sitting with friends at the bar or at a table the food is delicious and the service is top shelf.

The "Bridgewaye" is always busy during the summer season and equally busy on weekends during the winter. The views of the harbor are excellent and the seating is spacious. We've found the real secret is the pizza. We order take-out at least once per month and recommend the balsamic or basic and tomato pizzas.

This is our go-to place in Marshfield! HUGE portions, great food, and best pizza in town. The fried seafood is great here as well as the surf and turf, and chicken parm. Excellent service as well! The staff is always very friendly, we love coming here partly to see them as well! Love this spot!

I am always amazed by the portions and the reasonable prices at the Bridgewaye. Friendly bar (but they could use more help behind the bar) and also generous pours... A great takeout place as well. Not intimate, but friendly and good service.
