excellent food

We have been to this restaurant twice and have had great food at a fair price on both occaisions. The seafood is fresh and there is a nice dining room. Parking can be difficult as should be exprected in Medford but it is well worth a visit!

Went as a group of 4 on a Tuesday evening. Service was a bit slow, but food was all excellent! Schrod was extremely fresh and flavorful, and Lobster pie was also great. Would recommend to anyone!

We chose Moulton's based on the many positive online reviews. I'm a seafood lover and am always on the lookout for that small neighborhood gem. Unfortunately this isn't it. The dining room was quiet and pleasant, and the staff friendly and attentive, but we were very disappointed in the food quality. My wife's grilled salmon arrived smelling burnt and was... More

While visiting Tufts University for an event, I asked a former professor to lunch and he suggested this place. It was excellent. It is located in a residential neighborhood not far from the campus, but better to drive than walk. The fish is all fresh and can be ordered fried, grilled, baked, Cajun, or blackened. I had baked Filet of... More

The food was delicious, simple and great quality. I had the Seafood platter and it was huge! Clams, Shrimp, Scallops and Haddock as well as french fries and onion rings. It was perfect since I was very hungry and just got back to Tufts from a long flight from home in Chicago. My girlfriend had blackened scallops and the pilaf...she... More

Great seafood in a neighborhood setting where you might not expect it, and less than 5 minutes from Tufts University. The dining room is quite modern and stylish which is a surpise behind the "storefront" entry. Family run, the staff cares about your experience. The prices are very reasonable. My group's four meals were all excellent. Three of us had... More

Celebrated our son's birthday with lobsters. Top quality fresh seafood and chowder. Excellent Caesar Salad. We'll come back on our next Boston visit for sure!

Spilt my drink all over table, myself and floor and the waiter that watched it happen walked away. My husband asked for some napkins and the jerk waiter brought 3... 3 napkins! We then asked the "hostess" and she gave us a few as well. No one acknowledged it, no one came over to help, no one even offered another... More

The outside looks like a dive bar, but the interior was actually quite modern. The staff was very friendly. The dining room is very small but the food was really good, and the value was terrific. It's a nice option for sure.

This place is an oddity.... from the outside, it looks like a neighborhood juice joint, you know the kind of place where you walk in and all the regulars stare at you because you are a stranger, But, when you walk in and make a sharp right... you enter a finely decorated dining room Certainly I recommend that you try...
