Informal local place close to area hotels, small but comfortable. The décor was the usual nautical motif you'd expect from a casual no-frills restaurant. Booths and tables were available, but as usual for casual dining alone, I dined at the bar. The waitress seemed a little over-taxed but I was in no hurry. No complaints about the service. I was...

I eat at the Sea Witch almost weekly. This is a small, family run restaurant that specializes in fresh seafood, fried, broiled, baked or raw shell fish. Lobster is a staple here served boiled, baked or in a lobster roll. The Sea Witch has a large take out clientele. At the restaurant you enter and place your order and pay.... More

You line up and order like a fast food joint, pay, then go find a table and wait for the food to be served. The food however is very good, cooked to order, and definitely not like fast food.

I love their fried shrimp clams scallops and even french fries. The crabmeat pie was incredible. Quaint place where you order up front and the waitress delivers. Seafood market next door also has great lobsters

So I come up from Connecticut every other month for a meeting in Danvers. After driving by this place plenty of times I decided to stop in. I was pleasantly surprised. I had assumed it was just a fishmarket but there is a tiny little restaurant with a small little bar that is tended buy some very welcoming staff. The... More

Finally found a seafood restaurant that serves whole lobsters at a reasonable price! Great service. We both had the boiled lobster dinners (1 for me, 2 for him). Tasty, sweet lobster and tender corn on the cob. No complaints!

This restaurant has not changed in all the years we have been eating there. Every time we visit the area, we make a point to stop in - good food/good prices.
