This place is a little dated, the lettuce on the salad is a little tired, but the fish fry was tasty and they have great prices on bottled wines with a good selection of red and white.

I am regular at Balch's and I can absolutely say I have never had a bad meal here. I've been coming here for over 6 years. The food is always delicious and the girls are so friendly. They accommodate you any way they can. I highly recommend the prime rib. It's juicy and delicious, the best prime rib I've ever... More

It's not just seafood that's good here even though it's called a seafood restaurant. The prime rib is excellent, too, among other items we've tried. Early bird specials up until 5 p.m. certain days (Sundays for sure, not sure what others) are a great deal and include soup or salad PLUS the dessert of the day (it was strawberry shortcake... More

While working in the area for a week, I drove past this restaurant every day. I love seafood, and a place that will do fried seafood well seems pretty rare, so I stopped in to give it a try. The place itself is nothing special in terms of decor. It's like most other seafood places that way. You don't go... More

I had not stopped in here in quite a while.It's always been good but this time was exceptionally good.We both enjoyed the baked haddock which seemed to melt in your mouth. It was offered as an early bird choice with salad or soup and also dessert . The price here is right in that you would pay double or more... More

Had just checked into the Myer Country Motel and said it certainly would be nice if there was a good restaurant nearby. Walked just a short way down 209 and there was Balch's. Food was good, service was quick, prices were reasonable. We were very pleased with our "find".

I've been in the area for work around 2 weeks now and I'v had some horrific meals, great meals and then a few amazing meals and this place make my amazing list. Would definitely recommend for any traveler. Food, staff, service were all top notch.

I started going to Balch's when it first opened, (Quite a while ago) and it has thrived, and gotten better each year. The menu is varied, the Seafood Fra Diavolo is a gastronomic treat that easily serves my wife and I. If you are budget conscious, the appetisers are large enough for an average meal. We particularly like the stuffed... More

We love this time of year at Balch's. Their soft shell crabs are amazing. They also have lobster rolls this weekend for memorial day. Service is always pleasant and soups are delicious. What more can I say......
