The location on the outer edge of New Bedford harbour is great in summer and interesting any time of the year. I had eaten there about 5-years ago and about a year ago. This time the quality of the preparation had improved significantly. My guest enjoyed the location and also the meal. Service had always been good and the standard was maintained. It is knowledgeable and friendly.

Bad service, bad food. Living on its past reputation( hopefully not for long). Had a glance into the kitchen..... I'll spare the details.

Long time local favorite. Seafood anyway you can imagine it. One of only a few restaurants directly on the water.

Nice location in the city of New Bedford, on the waterfront in the south end of the city. On a nice day it is lovely with a beautiful view of the ocean, Butler Flats lighthouse and the hurricane gates that guard this area from the rest of the ocean. Davy's is known for it's fresh seafood. I most recently had the seafood casserole and enjoyed it immensely. A person in my party had the chicken primavera (for non-seafood lovers) and said it was wonderful - ample portion. Service was adequate but nothing to write home about. A fly roamed about but perhaps that couldn't be helped given the proximity to their outdoor section. My wine glass had a previous lipstick stain on it but perhaps that was attention to detail on the part of the waitstaff? Could happen most anywhere. The restaurant has an odd smell buy perhaps that is the fresh seafood? Prices are fair ($2.50 for a beer). Gave a decent 20% tip in spite of it all and the waiter never said thank you. Possibly since two in our party (ten of us) needed to linger and finish their after dinner drinks? Have not visited the outside tiki bar but it looks fun although seems to be a popular spot with bikers. Good luck!
