“Seafood at its best!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

From the very understated and small restaurant, to the wonderful waitresses, this place is
the best for Seafood and especiallly fried. The clams are always a hit, but the double and triple
combos will fill even the biggest appetite. The place is dated, but the quality and quantity of the plates makes up for this.
I rarely order fried seafood anywhere else, because it NEVER meets the standards of Dubes.

“The Best Around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

This restaurant has the best seafood, period. It is off the beaten path, so more locals than tourists,, Better than Legal Seafood, which is way over rated anyway.
I don't know anyone who doesn't love Dube"s!

“Great Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The seafood is always fresh, never had a bad meal. The restaurant is small so it is best to arrive early.

“Chowda! Chowda!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The best fried seafood around! Clams and shrimp were great! Not to mention the chowder and clam cakes. Didn't have any, but was told by family that the seafood stew was wonderful as well! It's not real easy to find, but worth the effort!

“Best fried food around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Have been a life long fan of Dube's until about 6 months ago when we were very disappointed....seemed like the oil was old. However, we were dying for fried shrimp and clams last nite and decided to give them another try...sooooo glad we did! Right back to the old beloved Dube's!!!! Best fried clams and shrimp around these parts and the onion rings are to die for!
