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 the halibut for shrimp. The lobster was scored so all the extra water was drained out. My son devoured the clams saying they were excellent. The fried selection was light and crisp - delicious!!! We wanted to visit again before we headed home, but the route didn't work out. The only deterrent was that it was cash only, which we didn't know about. Luckily we had the cash to pay for it.

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 can hire someone to maintain the dining room. If we return again to Markey's the first order of business will be to check the floor for cleanliness before ordering.

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 only, who carry cash today, is always credit cards, and yes they have an ATM machine, who charge you $2.00 for using their machine, that is not a great service, don't mind paying for a great meal, but when you have to go with this in mind, that you have to carry cash with you, is wrong, this place was empty, so we decided to go across the street.

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