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!

We stopped here while in the area never new they were here! The best and most affordable sea food we have ever had! My friend ordered a huge 2lb lobster that was extremely meaty, I had the 2lbs of the p.e.i mussels served with white wine garlic sauce, and we both got the most delicious seafood chowder we have ever...

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.

The cashier was so nice. The food was just alright. We had the seafood platter. The food was cooked spot one but it lacked seasoning. The chowder was tasty, but the lobster bisque was lacking in flavor and one little piece of lobster in it.

I love quirky/homey places. Just so you know...you order your food at the counter when you walk in, the give you a number, you have a seat and then they bring your food to you. If you're looking for upscale this isn't it. But...if you're looking for a great lobster roll with friendly service at a good price this is... More

Everytime that I come up here from Florida, I have to stop to get my seafood fix. I love the fried clam plate, and they are always nice and not greasy. They are in a nice light batter not heavily encrusted. We love the lobster rolls, fish n chips, fried scallops, and clam chowder. This is a local family restaurant... More

We had the lobster stew, fried lobster tails and scallop basket. While it was all good, the scallops really stood out. I wish we had a place like this in Arizona. They were fried, but not covered in bread. More like a light tempura. The lobster stew was also very good.

I stopped here on my way from the Boston airport to Maine, and both the lobster roll and clam chowder were fantastic. From the food to the old-timey nautical decor, the Sea Witch definitely kicked my New England vacation into high gear. I had lobster rolls nearly every day I was in Maine, but not many of them were as... More
