“Consistent local favourite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Always great value, especially fish dishes, (all from the catch brought in and sold locally), decent service and very, very reasonable. Lot's of choice and a good children's selection. Good for the casual diner or special occasion.

“Nice Seafood In the Offseason”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Friendly atmosphere, good food. Very quiet offseason evening. Perhaps missing the summer crowd that makes past reviews I've read legendary. Felt like we were treated secondary, service, etc. because I was with my teenage son rather than the date night tables. The raw bar food was prepared by someone who must be learning to shuck clams. Would we return? Probably not.

“Consistently great seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

My husband and I and a couple of friends have been going to Davy's for years. The decor has changed over the years, but the seafood is consistently good. The menu is very extensive and I haven't had anything yet that I was not happy with. My husband swears their clam chowder is the best. I am a salmon lover and they prepare it several ways. We recently had dinner there and they had added on to the menu with more gourmet choices. Excellent! We also love their desserts. If you don't like seafood you will still be happy there. There are plenty of choices and they have good steaks, too.

If you are looking for a place with great choices, consistent preparation, good service and on the water - try Davy's Locker in New Bedford.

basic food, one of most beatiful areas in New Bedford, overlooking the harbor. nice fish chowder. basic food, but worth the experience of visiting one of New Bedford's more recognizable restaurants and locations.
