I ordered the Big Catch haddock sandwich which consisted of a fried piece of haddock with lettuce and tartar sauce. I chose Cole slaw on the side rather than fries. It was good but not great and a bit pricey at $9.99. My wife ordered a 5 oz cheeeseburger with cole slaw on the side, at $7.49. The taste of... More

Wanted a bite before leaving NH and found the Beach Plum. My wife had the Rueben sandwich and I ordered a pint of fried scallops. We both really enjoyed our lunches. I especially enjoyed the scallops... they were large and perfectly fried. When in the area, I will definitely return.

My wife and I had lunch at this restaurant yesterday. My wife ordered a 6 ounce lobster roll and I tried the 6 ounce crab roll. The lobster roll was very average but expensive at a price of $17.99, French fries were an extra $2.50 as the rolls are normally served with a small bag of Lays chips. The crab... More

We ate at the Beach Plum on Sunday August 3rd. We arrived around 4:45pm just before the evening rush. There were picnic tables both inside and on the outside dining area. We had a half and half plate of clams and haddock, onion rings, and the foot long 16 oz. lobster roll for dinner. The lobster roll consisted of two... More

Maybe it was what I had. But there are SO many other fresh seafood places I would rather go to. I had salmon and it wasn't that good. The ice cream is decent but I would rather go to Lago's for that.

Summer is certainly the best time to indulge in Lobster and Fried Seafood. If you love it as much as I do, you won't be disappointed here. What I like about the Lobster rolls is the ability to order the size and amount you want. I would tend to order to the smaller size since all are filling. I ordered... More

I live near the Beach Plum, and visited today for the first time this year. I think they changed their menu for lobster rolls, because they had it broken down by ounces. Your choices were 6 oz, 8 oz, 12 oz., etc.. I think there were about 6 choices. I don't remember it being like that last year. Anyway, I... More

This casual restaurant has many choices of sandwiches and lobster rolls along with ice cream. Quantities of food are reasonable but the ice cream is overpriced. However, there aren't many food locations with similar offerings.

My husband and I had lunch at the Beach Plum, but we did not enjoy the picnic table dining area or the food. Your place your order at the counter and have a tray delivered. I did not see too many healthy selections on their menu, mostly fried greasy seafood, I probably should have had the lobster roll. The portions... More
