This restaurant never fails. Great smallish menu with nice sized portions. My wife and I usually share two appetizers (the mussels are to die for) and then split a main course. With a modest bottle of wine we typically spend $100 before tip and tax. Not cheap, but worth the money. Great service and comfortable seating. I have eaten here... More

We've been driving by for years. Decided to try it out when the wait was too long at a restauraunt down the street. We were very glad we did. This is a hidden gem. Excellent food and great service. The place was spotless and tastefully decorated, anywhere that has windows to view into the kitchen has confidence in the quality... More

This is a small but very popular and lively café right in Hingham center. The food is good, but not excellent. Reservations are a must. Expensive--$25-40 per person without drinks for dinner. Also open for lunch. Very nice atmosphere. Big drawback is noise at dinner. Very difficult to carry on conversation then.

I love the decor of this restaurant. The lunch menu has a good variety of choices. I had the Thai spicy shrimp salad and enjoyed every bite of baby spinach, crunchy vegetables, 5 large shrimp perfectly cooked, with peanuts and a tasty Thai sauce. I'm looking forward to a return visit soon.

We have been eating at the square for about 10 years, and it NEVER disappoints! The tuna two ways, the Thai mussels, the calamari, the BREAD WITH OLIVE OIL are out of this world! The staff is excellent, attentive and friendly with great recommendations. Everyone in the area knows this is the best quality food and menu available in Hingham...... More

What a wonderful experience, right in downtown Hingham! Our waiter, Luke, was awesome! The food was above my expectations. The calamari app was excellent...one of the best calamari dishes I have had in a long time. The reason for 4 stars in lieu of 5 is due to the portions for the main. Granted we ordered from the small plate... More

One of our favorite restaurants in Hingham. It isn't cheap, but you get what you pay for. Service is always outstanding and we have never had a bad meal in ten years.

My favorite on the South Shore. From sophisticated, fresh seafood dishes to a gourmet burger, one of the most creative and delicious menus anywhere.
