We went on a Saturday afternoon around 4 after reading article in boston globe about the awesome clam chowder. Not so awesome. Missing the clams. Granted the broth was really good, but I like to see clams in my chowder not miniscule bits Same goes for the crab cakes. I like to see and taste crab, not a bread crumbs.... More

I have reviewed this restaurant before but wanted to make a few more comments. I ate here last night with a good friend and I just need to comment on the service dropping a bit. Firstly, they have different beers upstairs than downstairs and if you want one that the other bar does not have you have to go get... More

The place was extremely crowded when we arrived. Although they told us it would be a half hour wait, it was far less than that. Definitely get the jumbo lobster roll - the best ever, hot or cold. The service was excellent.

We usually stay clear on a Saturday night due to the immense popularity of this restaurant. But, we ventured over on a Saturday night. We decided to sit on the outside deck and we lucked out as there wasn't any wait time. Our server Deidre was fantastic Our drinks were served quickly and our appetizer of calamari also came quickly... More

I went to this restaurant with my family Saturday night. They have outdoor seating on a beautiful deck on the second floor. We wanted to wait for seats out there, but most people who eat out there stay put and have drinks all night after they eat. We gave up after an hour and decided to eat inside. I had... More

Ok seafood- we could not taste the differences between the fried haddock and fried calamari. Oh yeah, DO NOT order the green beans as a side-unless you like paying a restaurant to prepare you over cooked CANNED green beans. Probably will not go there again.

Decided to check out the new & improved Haddad's and we were not disappointed. The wait was quite long on a Saturday night but the lively bar scene kept us entertained so we enjoyed drinks and perused the menu. All four of us enjoyed our meals which included some very tasty coconut shrimp, a huge serving of calamari and good... More

We have been here before for lunches found the lunches excellent!! Went for dinner with friends on Saturday night and found the place packed. No problem parking because they have free valet parking. We were told there was a 15 minute wait and we only waited 5 minutes. The hostesses, waitstaff, and valets attended to your every need. On a... More

Very average beach place food. Strip clams were even worse than strip clams usually are. clam chowder held true to the wall paper paste model that has become so popular. the thicker the better seems to be the motto. and not think with potatoes, but with cornstarch or flour or something. and, there didn't seem to be many clams in...

Haddad's has become one of our favorite and most frequently visited restaurants on the South Shore. The seafood is consistently good to excellent, the service is great, and the atmosphere is fun. Their upstairs deck is open all summer for drinks and/or dinner, and they have a band playing on weekend nights. The downstairs bar is hopping with an occasional... More
