Had an early dinner and tried this restaurant based on a recommendation from a local friend. Dining alone, I chose to go to the bar side. Was a great thing I did, as all their starter appetizers were half price. I selected the Maryland crab cakes. They were pretty good. I had garlic butter broiled shrimp and potatoes for main... More

Went here for a grad party and while the party was great the food was a bit sub par. I have eaten here before and I know they can do a much better spread than they provided at the party.

Excellent seafood, nice atmosphere, good service - and tjr prices are about tjr best you will find for high quality seafood in the greater Boston area. Free parking right next to the restaurant and plenty of meter parking on the street if the lot is full. Fried foods are very good, not greasy with a clean tasting batter - broiled... More

I am not sure if this restaurant has changed hands, but things definitely have changed. It has been located in Natick for quite a few years, but our latest visit resulted in our questioning whether we will go back. Luncheon prices and quality and service are so much better than dinner, at least on a Monday night. Maybe the regular... More

We had booked but still had to wait. We eventually agreed to eat in bar as we were going to a show at TCAN (it was super). Food was good but not really special. Great if you are hungry as generous portions.

Pleasantly comfortable seafood eatery, where the menu is broad enough to excite, and tempt a good range of palates. Good value for what's on offer, where portions will prompt the take home bag, and the quality of the cooking will satisfy all but the most pretentious.

We made a reservation and were sat right away. Our waitress was attentive and knowledgeable. We began with specialty drinks. I had Sangria which was nice and summery. My father and husband had martinis, which were very delicious and strong. We all had clam chowder which was thick and packed full of clams. The rolls came out hot. I had... More

Dolphin Seafood - Natick, MA - 6/2/2016 First out... Some of the freshest of fresh shrimp cocktail I've had in a long time served on a bed of crispy lettuce with cocktail sauce and horseradish... Seriously... The only way you're going to get fresher shrimp is if you go out in a boat and get it yourself... Next the lobster... More

I have been going to Dolphin for years. I have never had a bad meal. Their portions are generous the prices a pretty good and the service is always great. The lobster specials (twin) are a super value!
