Everything about this place is perfect... Sometimes we get the opportunity to make it to the Carolina coast for seafood and we had a real hard time deciding whos was better compared to windjammers. Its that good! The country comfort foods were a nice option...as well. Sweat tea was good, service was excellent!! Menu items were well priced! The clam chowder wasnt our preferred chowder but were not locals so im sure what theyre making appeases most people.More

Fried lobster tail? Yes, please. This family friendly casual restaurant is our new favorite lunch spot when headed to points north in NH or ME (from Boston). There is a huge board of daily specials, but the menu standards — our family of three had...the fried shrimp platter, beer-battered lobster, and a hamburger for the seafood-averse kiddo. The “mates” (small) platter was more than enough, even for my oversized appetite!More

Usually a 5 but missed this time. Haddock was undercooked and the breading was rubbery for that reason. Nuggets were not close in size so the cook was inconsistent. First time, usually perfect.

Stop by even if you aren’t a fan of seafood!! I don’t eat seafood but there are so many other options, my favorite being the pilgrim wrap. It’s like thanksgiving all wrapped up into a warm wrap with a side of gravy with it! The...waitresses that I’ve had have all been super sweet and on top of everything from refilling our drinks to getting us bread and butter. Stop by-you won’t regret it!!More

This has been our go-to seafood place for years. Food is excellent; portions are large; prices can't be beat and service is very good. They have two sizes of most entrees - mates and captains. They also have senior meals that include a non-alcoholic drink...and dessert. Haddock Nuggets are fabulous and priced under $9. Onion rings are thin, lightly battered and crispy! If you're looking for seafood, except lobster, this is the best in the area.More

This is my go-to place for seafood. Best clam chowder ever, and great fried native shrimp. Batter is always light and clean, does not taste like it has set in the frier all day and had several different items cooked in it. Excellent serving size...for the money.More

Driving home to BOSTON, needed to eat, Googled food around our location,this restaurant came up. This place was great. They seated us in a quiet aisle. I had my 89 year old mother, deaf sister and her service dog. The variety of food met all...our desires and the strawberry shortcake was so delicious.More

Windjammers Seafood Restaurant is a tiny hole in the wall that has expensive, albeit delicious seafood that's beyond reproach, if you don't mind being cramped in and being rushed out the door as soon as you get your food that you waited almost an hour...for!! I'd say try it, but don't go with a crowd & make sure you have plenty of time and bring your wallet or purse, filled!!More
