Best fried haddock around

This place is really a dive - but the fried haddock and the onion rings are delicious! I only go here once every couple of months because everything really is deep fried - but I look forward to going.

The place is dirty, greasy, old, and most of all not fresh. You will know once you walk in and smell. Has been around for a long time but they have done very little to keep it up. Dreary to say the least. Not worth it. Food is bland and tasteless.

if you like traditional seafood shacks that aren't on the water. I mean it. A little bit of an honest Crusty Crab feeling, all the requisite fish and crustaceans on the wall, an honest staff that works hard to give you fresh and clean what they've got. Good portions sizes. I have a soft spot for non-chain family owned places... More

Seafood is OK...tasty, average servings, not special by any means. Never had a bad meal here, but this is for us a place for an impromptu craving for fried clams when we do not want to drive out of town to get fantastic seafood on the coast. This is a wait in line to place your order and retrieve it... More

Went here to meet up with some friends from Florida. They don't have the great seafood there that New England has, so we were more than happy to go to the Lobster Claw. What a disappointment! This restaurant has gone downhill and I can't believe it's still in business. I got the fried combo plate of haddock and shrimp. The... More

My husband had a yearning for fried clams, and someone recommended the Lobster Claw. Our party of four had: 1) a large fried shrimp dinner; 2 & 3) two of us had the special - fried scallops and fried shrimp, & 4) a huge mound of fried clams. Each dinner came with the best Cole slaw I've ever eaten. All... More

If you want great seafood at a fair price go here. The food is cooked right in front of you and it is always hot and fresh. The price is very good and you get a lot of food. We always bring home a doggie bag and have another meal.

Went here tonight for the first time in years. We wanted a good local seafood place and this is it! We got take out this time and the person I spoke to on the phone was very nice and friendly which right off the bat earned major points in my book. We ordered a sea scallop dinner and 2 clam...

I typically come here for lunch and find the food to be very good. It's always fresh and also convenient. Although the friends prefer Woodman's in Essex to be better, this place is still very good and also a lot more convenient. If you live in the North Reading area, save some gas, save 40 mins waiting in line at... More
