We didn't quite understand the concept of the one counter for fried and another for the boiled seafood, and ended up at the fried counter. We ordered the plate with the scallops, clams, lobster, and fish. All were very good. Served piping hot with fries and coleslaw. The fried lobster tasted good, but the breading overpowered the flavor. The breading... More

Absolutely no frills but seafood at its simplest at great prices. Place your order at the counter (actually one each for fried food, boiled, or drinks). Lobster rolls are loaded and fantastic. A large order of onion rings was gigantic. If it's taste and price you want, this is the price.

My son loves this place! It's nothing fancy. Plastic silverware and cardboard plates. You order your food and when it's ready you pick it up on a tray. As I said....nothing fancy! HOWEVER, the food is delicious!!! Well worth stopping in!! I always get the seafood platter so I can have a little of everything!

But this time a bit too busy - big party going on. The pair of lobsters as always really good, the corn a bit overcooked, and the clam chowder - o.k. but far from as good some other places in the coast area.

We went back a second time on a three day get away. Both times I had twin lobsters for less than $20.00 perfectly cooked and served simply with butter. My husband had a lobster roll filled to over flowing with lobster salad and clam chowder. The food is very good, portions were good, fresh salads nicely done but could use... More

This was our first visit to the NE part of the country. We spent the weekend in Boston and were ready to hit the countryside. We had Markey's recommended to us. The building was a little disappointing, but the food was fabulous. We got the lobster, steamed clams, and a fried choice consisting of clams, scallops, and they changed out... More

Came here for dinner our 2nd night of vacation. Had the fried haddock, onion rings and coleslaw. It was fantastic! The batter of the fried haddock was so delicious, fish was very fresh tasting and the coleslaw was perfect! Very fresh and not a ton of mayonnaise. I would definitely eat here again.

During our past visits to Markey's we have ordered just about everything on the menu. This visit, the food was exceptional. Everything ordered by our group came to us hot and cooked to perfection. Our only gripe was the condition of the floor; littered with napkins and remnants of food that customers dropped and never picked up. Do hope they... More

We drove from Hampton Beach looking for this famous place, got to the parking lot, and it was empty, usually on a holiday, places likes this are packed, but my husband got down, and there was only 1 couple having dinner, one of the things that I do not like about a lots of these restaurants, is the is cash...

Brown's with out parking says it all. Food is the same. Outdoor and indoor seating. A little less confused than Brown's. Try the fried lobster.
