Tasty Lobster Rolls

We stopped in on a rainy night for lobster rolls. We were not disappointed. Very good, meaty, nicely seasoned, and hot fries on the side. They even packaged up a couple of disassembled lobster rolls to throw in the cooler for the trip back to Maryland. So...lobster rolls the next night too!

Average food, hoped for better lobster rolls considering the area we were in. All in all it wasn't bad, good service but don't think there would be a return visit.

If I'm looking for a place that will pull me back to my childhood and the days of the New England fried clam shack, this is the place. Classic decor and good food for reasonable prices. But please keep in mind, this place is not fancy at all (but nor should it be). It's a classic New England staple that... More

Mixed emotions regarding our lunch at Sea Witch We all thought that the food was great. I had the scallops, mother-in-law had the oysters and my wife had the lobster mac & cheese. Sides consisted of Cole slaw, fries and onion rings (awesome). Only problem was that I also wanted oysters and they only had enough for one order, also... More

Even though I've driven by this restaurant countless times, I just recently stopped in and I'm glad that I did. This restaurant is a classic, no frills, no fuss New England style eatery with excellent seafood. While the decor is dated, my focus is always on the food when eating out. I ordered a fried shrimp plate and was very,... More

Stopped here for the first time in years, for lunch. I had a lunch special--baked scallops and shrimp. They were the tiny scallops and tiny shrimp, but actually tasty. Served very hot, with rice and good cole slaw. My husband had a fried seafood platter, which consisted of big shrimp,big scallops, clams, haddock, smelts, fries and onion rings. It was... More

The shrimp is a thing of beauty! Homemade onion rings, mouth watering scallops, I could go on and on about the food but I think I've made my point ☺

Went here on our last visit to the Boston area and we were not disappointed. The food is fresh, hot, tasty and large portions. The wait staff is friendly and helpful if you need anything. We always make a stop here! We had a party of 10 and they put tables together for us even though they were slammed on... More
