“Best Fish & Chips Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

We travel often and eat out much more than we should, so when I say this is the best Fish & Chips meal we ever had, we really mean it!

The fish was fresh Cod and was so thick and perfectly cooked it just melted in your mouth. The home-made tarter sauce again, was the best we have ever had. The fries were perfectly fried as well and had such a good taste. The best part was the entire meal only cost $7.99!

The outside appearance of the restaurant may put some people off, as oddly enough is attached to a pizza restaurant but the inside is very small with only about 20 tables and a small bar.

The restaurant is less than one mile to Sturbridge Village.

“What a find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

This restaurant had a great atmosphere, great staff and most importantly excellent food. I checked it out on trip advisor and expected to see average restaurant. It was so much better. There is not a lot of room so make a reservation. They are expanding and making a fish market, too.

“Whole Belly Clams - Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

I had a Strawberry Pistachio Salad and an order of whole belly clams. The salad was good and the clams were excellent.

The fellow sitting next to me had a Shrimp Cocktail that was made with some of the largest shrimp I've seen recently. I was tempted to snatch one when he wasn't looking.

The chief was an interesting chap. He designed and built the tables and bar. The bar was constructed using wood from wine crates.

“Great Clam Choda”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

My wife and I stopped in for lunch and found the place to be very cute inside. I had the Clam Chowda which was different than most. It was N.E. style but darker than most. It had a misterious taste and I could discern bacon in it but not the other item. The waiter said it was "Smoky" bacon and that really cleared it up. The Chowda was delicious and a bowl serving only $5.00. We both had fish and chips ($8;00) that was tender and flaky and very good.

“Outstanding Food, Great Craft Brew, itty bitty space....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

We spent two days in Sturbridge at the Host Hotel and Convention Center for a two day conference. We love Old Sturbridge Village and go there often. We had not been to Sturbridge Seafood and so, on our first night we went for a visit, at around 4 PM. The room was already filling up. It is a small space. We understand they plan to expand, good thing! We took the last two seats at the bar and enjoyed a wonderful evening of fine craft beer, outstanding food and the warm and friendly company of Randy, the man behind the bar. On the menu are a number of plates to share. We started with a dozen oysters from the raw bar, four each of three different varieties, and moved onto salmon skewers. The skewers were three large fillet pieces gently roasted. Next on the list was the Staff Favorite. This invention was blackened steak tips and mash potatoes stuffed into a burrito. Finger comfort food at it's best. We added the best Ceaser Salad we have ever had, mostly because it comes in a toasted Parmesan cheese bowl.The bowl makes this salad irresistible! And lastly, the delightful creation of the evening, cheese cake wontons. Imagine cheese cake filling tucked into tiny wontons, the size of bite size shredded wheat, then deep fried, dusted lightly with confectionery sugar and served with both dark chocolate and carmel sauces. Needless to say, we were back the next night, managed the same two seats, and went through the same menu of beer and bites. Our thanks to Randy and the entire staff at Sturbridge Seafood. If we lived closer, we would be there every week!
