Casual, convenient, great service, good seafood

Been there twice in the last month. Had clam chowder, fried seafood plate and calamari. All were very good. Staff is very accommodating and responsive. Venue is casual, kind of like a clam shack. It was fried food so it didn't take a master chef to prepare it but it could have been easily... read more

I stop in at the Sea Witch 3 or 4 times a year for a fried seafood fix when in the area. And the fresh cut and battered onion rings are to die for!! This is a local family owned/run place that just changed hands to another family member. And maybe that's why I had a strange thing happen after... More

Have eaten here for many many years on my trips to the Boston area and have hosted may clients in this really great restaurant. Seafood is always fresh and the beer cold! A must try for seafood in the Boston area.

On prior occasions I did have a decent meal, namely fresh oil taste but not consistent at all. Scallops my fav. are frozen.Yuk! New clam strips are tasteless totally, Haddock is tiny pieces that appear to be some kind of fish ends. The dinner rolls hard not fresh. Onion rings this time were good but the oil is unpredictable. I... More

This has generally been a solid seafood place, nothing fancy but at least the seafood part was done right even if the sides were mediocre. Recently got a lobster roll that was mostly mayonnaise and lettuce. Really what you would expect from a fast food joint that just happened to have a lobster roll on the menu. Does have a... More

As written by another reviewer, it is not a fancy place, but the seafood is great. We ordered take out, and I recommend calling in your order if you go this route.

The servers and cooks we spoke with when ordering were helpful and ready to help with any questions and suggestions. The servers had smiles and great senses of humour they were great to chat with and definitely helped make this no frills seafood shop worth the drop in. Prices were reasonable too!

My husband and I enjoy coming to the Seawitch for a casual lunch or dinner. The seafood is fresh and always delicious. You place your order and pay for your meal at the register in front, seat yourself, and the waitstaff brings you your meal. Very nice people on staff and the service is quick. Good family place.

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...
