Took some staff for a year end lunch, and we all left satisfied. The seafood pie - chunks of seafood, lobster included, baked in butter and breadcrumbs - probably wrecked my cholesterol but was well worth the damage. Casual atmosphere, and quiet in the off season.

I was raised on the South Shore but now live out of state. I recently called to purchase a gift certificate that a family member would pick up within a couple of hours. I was told this was not possible because, "we used to do it but had problems with the gift certificates getting misplaced at the front desk." Although... More

Don't miss this spot to enjoy great seafood and a view of the South River and Humarock. A variety of foods and drinks. Also a casual spot for families

We've been driving past this place everytime we've come to the area, and finally stopped in. Get the big lobster roll if you like lobster rolls, it's like a foot long. Fresh and delicious! The pizza and steak tips were wonderful too. The server was different, drink service a little unusual but good service overall. If you sit at a... More

Although the it is right near the water, there aren't any great ocean views. The food makes up for the view, the seafood is always fresh and delicious!!

I have been here once before and thought it was good, though not great. That was about a year and a half ago. Went today for lunch and it was very busy. Waited over 1 hour, but it was so worth it. Very fast service , food was great especially considering how busy it was. Sometimes, a busy holiday can... More

This restaurant has a lot of good food but you have to have the Mussel appetizer and when your done you will want to sop up all the broth with the bread they give you. My wife and I also like Fried Clam Strips and these are served perfectly done. I do wish the french fries were a little thinner... More

I called the restaurant to find out how much of a wait time there was for a table and if they took rservations. When the girl answered the phone I asked, "How long of a wait time is there"? And she said, "for what" I said, "for a table". She told me about an hour so I asked if they... More

Always a great meal! Love the atmosphere. Only negative is that it's not closer to home! Broiled seafood platter is delicious as is the fried seafood platter. Big portions!

It's a shame that there aren't more ocean side restaurants on the South Shore of Boston. However, with a spot like 'The Bridgewaye', they'd probably pale in comparison! We've been frequenting this restaurant for many years and, while operated by the Polcari family, we've had great dining experiences. It's nothing fancy, but has a great bar, and an extensive menu,...
