Our kids live near Rye and we always make a point of visiting Petey's - no matter what time of the year. We order the appetizers of whole-body clams and haddock. We order the small portions and split them. We can never decide which one we like better. The seafood chowder is excellent. The worst part of this restaurant is finding a place to park - particularly in summer. The public way to the ocean is just a across the street and we go over there with the kids if there's a long wait for a table. Love it!

We often come to this restaurant when we are in the area because they have some really awesome fried clams. We have notice a trend that every time we go (about 15 times in the last few years) the service is always horrible. The waitresses are rude, have attitudes when you ask for refreshments, and are terrible at explaining things on their menu. The sad thing is we love the food so we go back just for that. A great seafood pitstop but prepare for snooty help. I hope this changes soon!

My boyfriend and I were driving up the coast and were thinking of stopping in KIttery for a bite to drink but as we drove the snow was making it a little hairy/scary on the coastal road so we decided to stop at Petey's and what a pleasant surprise. I had the fish and chips which were lightly breaded and done to perfection. No heavy grease which is always a turn off. My boyfriend got the fried oyster roll and proclaimed it the best he has had in decades.....the beer was cold, the staff warm and overall a really fun place to eat.

I had to write another review on this place. On a Saturday afternoon at 3:00PM, the place was hopping. We sat in the bar area and dined on clams and scallops - excellent as always. The clientele is an upbeat crowd whaich makes this a great gathering place. We will go back again and again as the food and service is over the top!

Stooped in for a quick bite on our way to Maine and enjoyed the fresh seafood and chowders like always. Fish chowder and Lobster bisque were hot and loaded with meat and the Belly Clam Roll (I always get rolls at lunch and plates at dinner for some reason...) Fried Scallops were perfectly cooked, moist and portions were huge as always. Good beer and good atmosphere as the restaurant was not busy as all which is nice as many times the wait can be hours. If you're in the area you have to try Petey's!
