Went here to buy some fish to make for our Italian Christmas Eve. I bought the freshest haddock I have ever eaten. It was so meaty and white. I bought it raw and cooked it at home. I also bought frozen octopus which was perfect, and fresh chopped clams to make stuffed quahogs. I recommend anyone to go here for... More

I reviewed Sea Witch about three years ago and had a chance to go again. This time it was excellent. Chowder, baked sole, seafood platter-all at the top of their game. Baked sole was plentiful and crumb coated and baked nicely with a very heaping portion of tender fish. Seafood platter included clams, scallops, smelts, fish and shrimp, and all... More

I have only been here once and the lobster bisque was very tasty and nicely seasoned. Will go again to enjoy an offering of haddock.

First time here, the restaurant is small, but it's clean and has a nice atmosphere. I got the Fried Clams, they were good, but very small. Not the large bellied clams that I am used to getting at other seafood places around. also the portion size was a bit small compared to some of their competitors. My wife got the... More

The Seawitch was a great little seafood place with friendly and courteous staff. The atmosphere is casual with wooden benches and paper plates, but the star is certainly the fresh seafood prepared in a variety of ways. I would definitely go back if I were to find myself in the area again.

We went to this restaurant twice for dinner and both times it was terrific. Everything we had was excellent, including boiled lobsters, clams, lobster rolls and fried shrimp platter. The service was excellent and the food was well prepare, served hot and quickly. We would always go back if in the Boston area.

The staff at the Towne Place Suites recommended this place. Very good food; you order at the counter and pay there and it is delivered to your table.

This little seafood market and restaurant is perfect! The food is superb, and the staff is a pleasure to be around. I can tell you that the seafood is as fresh as it gets, and the value is perfect.

We have been going here since we moved to Peabody in 1998. It's kind of funny, you order like a take out counter but then your are waited on by waitresses that bring your food and drinks while your eating. If you need anything in between they will get you whatever you need. You can tip ahead of time or... More
