We were first time visitors and we had no idea what the procedure was. You had to order fried foods at the window, lobsters at another (tho you could order fried foods along with the lobsters but no one told us) and you ordered steamers at a third window. I wanted baked haddock, my husband wanted oysters but they didn't... More

We went at 3:30 on a cloudy day and it was jammed packed. It was hard to get a parking spot, we waited in a long line to order, and waited a bit to get out food. The window girl was trained not to give out extra tartar sauce, but I wore her down. I had the fried clam &... More

My wife and I finally made it to this institution, and left mostly disappointed. Saturday nights are chaotic so maybe that's the wrong time to go, but we won't be going back. There's a long line to order fried food outside. Then, if you want lobsters or steamers, there are separate lines for that. I wanted steamers, but wasn't going... More

This place gets its one star for ample parking, otherwise I would have given zero. We typically stop at Markey's across the street but because there was no parking we decided to give Brown's a try. Big mistake! The service is flat at best, we did not feel welcome. You order fried food as well as chowder and lobster rolls... More

First of all - This is a CASH ONLY establishment. No credit cards accepted! Hit the bank or ATM before you go. We went in celebration of my Wife's birthday (it is her "Birthday Month"). We ordered two pound and a Half lobsters each along with some Clam Chowder. My brother had fried Haddock and Scallops and was raving about... More

I haven't been to Brown's for many years and was looking forward to a good lobster roll. It was average at best for the price that we paid. It seems that all of the prices were just too high. I was disappointed in the small amount of lobster in the roll. If you go, bring your own drinks. Only cash... More

We went with a bunch of friends for dinner. I ordered the fish & chips. It was light, not to greasy. I did not have that fried food hangover later in the night which was a plus for me! French fries were ok. Onion rings were terrible and ice cold! Best part was bringing your own wine and the company... More

My husband doesn't eat seafood, so a trip to Brown's was supposed to be a treat on this 4th of July weekend and the one thing I asked to do during an entire weekend of house projects!! We drove about 30 minutes to Browns, bought beer down the street at the convenience store and were even fortunate enough to find... More

I like going to places highlighted on the travel channel or food network. And this made the tastiest chowdown list top 100. We decided to go to a beach in Maine on a visit to Boston and stopped here along the way. The food was not bad. And the service was okay. But the food was small portions for an... More

Ate here on a Sunday afternoon just before Summer season. Ordering is a little confusing to the first timer: you order any fried food at a window outdoors. There's a separate counter inside to order steamers, and another to order boiled lobster (but you can order fried food where you order the lobster). After we figured this out, things went... More
