East Bay Grille is located on the Plymouth Waterfront a few blocks north of historic Plymouth Rock and Mayflower II, which means it's not right smack dab in the middle of the area where tourists flock, year round. But this restaurant has longevity, a scenic view and some of the best meals in America's Hometown. This means that, even in the winter months, when the only reason to visit Plymouth is harbor vistas and Pilgrim Hall Museum (as just about all other attractions are preparing to open in March & April) the place is often packed or certainly very busy. Possibly it's mostly area residents but I have to think word of mouth has spread the accolades of dining at East Bay Grille.
I dine there often for business, 3 or 4 times a year for pleasure and also know that a gift certificate is a welcome present.
It was a gift certificate that brought us and our friends on a recent Sunday evening. We all ordered a variety of sea food, 2 different cod dishes, 1 Mahi Mahi tuna and one salmon. I didn't taste the other's meals (they all raved about them) but my Cod on a bed of spinach, on a bed of risotto was absolutely scrumptious... melt-in-my-mouth scrumptious. The beet salad proceeding the entrée was yummy (with both purple and golden beets) and a shared coconut-sprinkled ice cream desert with coffee rounded the evening out nicely.
It was also fun conversing with our waitress as we quizzed her on American southern geography (don't have a clue how we got there) and realizing that this young woman was both amiable and intelligent.
Next time you're staring at Plymouth Rock (as every American should do at least once in their life) turn north, walk about 10 minutes, turn right and get a seat, inside or, in the nice weather outside at East Bay Grille, and enjoy the food, the view , the ambiance and the fun-to-chat-with wait staff.
