This dinner was the best meal we had on vacation. For starters, the calamari and oysters were superb. I had the baked crab cakes,and they were all lump crab meat. Several in our group had the seared tuna and they all revved about it. The lobster Mac and cheese was also a hit. The service was incredible. Fast, accurate and... More

The 3 of us decided to go back to one of our favorite beach restaurants, northeast seafood. We have always enjoyed this place and can always get a top meal without having to wait an hour like some of the other sodel restaurants. This night did not dissapoint! I started with the black cherry cocktail and my wife the Chardonnay.... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by fellow vacationers and we were very pleased. The crab cakes were delicious with tons of fresh large pieces of crab. The salmon on baked beans was a surprisingly excellent combination. The beet salad was also delicious. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. We will definitely come back.

This was the first time we visited Northeast Seafood, after driving past many times. My wife had the Hot Lobster Roll, I had Fried Oysters, and both were very good. The waitstaff was very attentive, without hovering, and nothing was rushed.

A casual place with both inside and outside seating. This restaurant hops with both locals and seasonal guests looking for excellent food served in a gracious manner. Wine and beer in good selections are available. I can't speak for the others in our party but I ordered salmon over baked beans. It was an odd combination that WORKS! I loved... More

This is a wide open restaurant with a bar that's separate from the dinning room if you just want to drink or eat at the bar .. The restaurant is open and feels larger than it is due to the glass surrounding the outside walls and the high ceiling and white paint .. The kitchen is open and allows you... More

Matt has many restaurants in the area. All great. We often get the fried shrimp, always good. Never greasy. It was sad that Matt passed away, but the management company is doing a good job of keeping the quality high and the service perfect.

We visit this restaurant 8-10 times per summer. The food is ok to good but the atmosphere has become unfriendly. Since the passing of the founder, the business has become strict in its rules and even more aggressive in moving one out the door. Some restaurants ask for no substitutions, at Northeast it is gospel. If one wants to change... More

A busy place with good service and good food. Had the beet salad starter -- very nice -- and lobster fra diablo -- good flavor, not too spicy, kinda skimpy on the lobster though. Nice bread served alongside. Server was quite knowledgeable about wine, with a lot of very nice by the glass choices. Nice casual place to dine.
