We sat at the bar because the wait was too long for a table probably because of lack of wait staff since there were plenty of empty tables. The service at the bar was good, however in 1 hr. and 20 min., we still hadn't...received our entrees. We had 1 drink and lobster bisque as we waited. When we announcing we were leaving our entrees were served. I had a risotto dish that was over cooked like it sat for quite a while. Clumped to the fork when held upside down. The bar tender was apologetic explaining we should have been told there was a large party and wait time. He took the bisque and drinks off the tab.More

Great food, we had the seafood platter, all fresh and the seared tuna was very good as well. All the seafood platters came with generous portions, service was a bit slow at times but mainly because of staffing, server was as attentive as she could...be.More

Ordered 1/2 doz oysters. Great cocktail sauce and lively horseradish. Oysters were wonderful. Nice salt. The crab cake had no discernible crab in it. Did not finish. Good sweet potato fries. Friend's calamari was very good, especially the spicy sweet peppers. Whole belly clams were...good too. Fried scallops completely tasteless. Bread good. Room spacious and clean with no one in it. Our group had its own room, but didn't need it because no one else there. Hostess very gracious and the service was excellent with knowledgeable and charming server who had no nametag.More

We stopped in with a party of 12 after being turned away by a nearby diner. We covered most of the menu between us. All special requests were taken care of promptly by the kitchen and our OUTSTANDING waitress, Katie. All agreed it was good...food at a good price with great service.More

It is the first time that I visit the place. My companion had already gone. The COVID protocols were taken into consideration. I was expecting another kind of menu, healthier since they are seafood, but most of the dishes were breaded or fried. We tried...the lobster bisque and it was delicious.More

I had Pan Sheared Scallops with a delicious risotto, just a wonderful dish. Glad the waitress had recommended it, I was struggling with all the good choices. They have excellent choices in craft beers but at $8 they were overpriced. I sat in a side...room and it was loud.More

I am a regular at this place ( I sit at the bar) because they have excellent food and tremendous bar service. They are known for their seafood, but believe it or not, they make probably the best burgers I have ever had. In addition,...their hot honey chicken tenders are fantastic. They always have a nice selection of beers on tap, and (if you are sitting at the bar) they are willing to let you sample a beer before you commit to it.More

Stopped in for an early dinner and was pleasantly surprised at the broad selection of seafood. It was early and much of the clientele was there for the happy hour raw bar. We settled for the blackened salmon tacos which were excellent. Each taco contained...a small fillet rather than chucks or shredded fish. They were well prepared and very tasty. My daughter has a shellfish allergy and the manager personally stepped in to make sure her order was specially prepared to address her needs. Will return when in the area again.More

We've been to Masse’s several times and it’s always consistently good. The lobster bisque is excellent. We usually go for lunch and I had baked cod which was perfectly baked and not overdone. The French fries are pretty good. My companion had fried scallops and...for $15 he got 5 scallops for the lunch portion but he said they were very good and not a bad price. If you like bread, mention it at the time of ordering as they don’t normally offer. The only complaint I have are the soft drinks are watered down. I’ve tried both ginger and coke and I felt like I was drinking water. They also have an attached seafood market if you prefer to cook it yourself.More

My son and I went for dinner here last Saturday and it was excellent ! The bartenders were amazing . Oscar and Branden made sure that we were taken care of properly. They were always checking on us and were both very personable. The portions...were more than we could eat and the prices are reasonable. Great place for seafood because it is always fresh.More

Maybe we were there on a bad night. It was cold and a bit snowy. Despite the reviews, Masse's did not live up to the hype for me. Despite the restaurant being half full, service was extremely slow. The food was average at best for...a seafood restaurant. The lobster bisque was a thick and hearty bowl....that lacked any lobster meat. The fish dish was a decent sized portion, however my piece of salmon was thin which, for me, was overcooked as a result. Good flavor though. The hash on top and rice were ok.More

I've visited Masse's several times now; the restaurant has a very nice atmosphere; food is good; and service is exceptional. At peak times, however, the place can be crowded and noisy. On my last visit I ordered a dozen Wellfleet Oysters on the half shell....The oysters were fresh, chilled to perfection, and served with cocktail sauce, lemon wedges, and horseradish. The cups on these oysters are deep and the liquor has a briny edge. Quite nice. For my main course I chose the evening's special, Lobster Scampi. As the name would suggest, the lobster was done much the same as Scampi (shrimp) with butter, garlic and onions. The chef added sliced grape tomatoes and spinach. The dish was nicely prepared, but arrived luke-warm and was only marginally enjoyable. Perhaps I'll try a piece of fish next time. I enjoyed my meal here and will return. Enjoy!.More
