Great seafood - bring cash!

Stopped by today and ordered the Fried Seafood Plate w/Lobster (clams, scallops, haddock, 2 tails of fried lobster). The food was very good, not too greasy - the lobster was a nice touch. The coleslaw was also great. My kiddo had a cheeseburger - standard burger - she said it was great though. I... read more

I used to go here 30 years ago with family but this time I found it just ok. 1 1/4 lobster was 16.50 and a quart of steamers was 16.95. The atmosphere is very casual and chaotic. You have to wait in long lines for fried food and drinks and it is inconvenient that it is all cash only. No... More

We usually go to Browns across the street, but we decided to give Markeys a try. We ordered a two way combo plate-fried clams and scallops, along with a side of onion rings. We got 7 clams and 14 half-scallops (so 7 of them too) with the bulk of the 'plate' being French fries. $19.95. We thought the ratio of... More

After years of going to the place across the street, Brown's, we decided that we would try Markey's and we haven't been back to Brown's since. The lobster is always cooked perfectly, the steamers are never gritty, and the fried food is lightly coated and delicious! You have an ocean view that is beautiful. The tables are picnic type with...

Everything about Mark's is an experience while eating in the rough. Parking is a problem during the major summer holidays. No complaints here, a great place during the "OPEN SEASON". Mark's closes for the winter months and we are the first to visit in the Spring. See you there.

I haven't reviewed this already? Really? And I've been going for years. Yes, it's old, it's lopsided, it's picnic tables and tray service and "listen for your number." So it isn't for everyone. But if you really care about fresh lobster, world class chowder and the best onion rings you'll ever have, you'll deal with the lack of ambiance. Order... More

My husband and I ate there this weekend... for the last time. The food (while fresh) was incredibly greasy and bland. They do not have a children's menu and did not even have milk to offer children. The restaurant sits on the water, but in our opinion, is in desperate need of tlc. the floors are uneven and are falling... More

We came to Markey's (Lobster POOL, not Pound) for the lobster, and it did not disappoint. We visited late in the afternoon so all the big lobsters were long gone, but we got a few nice mid-sized ones. They were boiled perfectly. We really appreciated that they cracked and split them for us, so digging out the lobster was a... More

We stopped here as we tooled around New England - to bring my spouse up to 50 states visited. That said, we LOVE lobster, and had to pick between Markey's and Brown's. My wife had cherry stone clams for the very first. time. Delicious! The odd? We wanted female lobsters, hoping to get the roe. They asked if wanted the... More
