This is a great spot if you're on a beach day and just want a casual spot for lunch. The place is very basic, as all seafood joints should be. Lobster rolls are the feature here, though you can get all the fried clams and...More

Excellent Very casual New England seafood fare. Great steamed lobsters and long neck clams are sweet and fresh. Lobster roles are generous with nicely toasted hot dog rolls. Fried clams are usually good, but vary in size depending on the season and catch. A few...More

Looking for seafood while staying in Seabrook, actually found Markey's when another seasonal choice was closed. Shared fried fish platter with lobster with plenty for 2. Scallops were delish and our first fried lobster. Casual dining.

We had steamers, chowder and lobsters. The steamers were cooked ahead of time and were quite tasteless (not sure if being cooked in advance caused the lack of taste). The chowder was hot and pretty good but a little bland. Lobsters were good. The place...More

One of my favorites when visiting relatives. Family lunch at Markeys today. Food was terrible. Clams and shrimp fried in old oil, NO taste, oil taste, shrimp small, similar to canned. Lobster roll like stale mayo. All on Malox tonight. Never again.

We've been fans of Markey's for years now. There's something for everyone. They have great fried seafood, but we go for the lobster and steamers. And the bonus is that you can skip the line for the fried food and order your steamers and lobsters,...More

We got a recommendation from a local worker near here. The food is mainly all fried food. But it's good. You can order lobster or raw oysters from one counter and order the other food from another counter. Take Cash money with you. No credit...More
