This is the BEST little fish place around. You can get fresh daily fish, sword, lobsters, haddock claims. Or you can get them cooked for you and ready to go. I have them do a lobster bake for me every year. It doesn't get much fresher than here. Great little takeout place.

This take-out restaurant offers good lobster and seafood at a reasonable price. Fried clams and fish are there stable. The lobster salad, and crabmeat rolls are meager and lacking flavor. The fried clams, and seafood baskets, however, are ample and delicious. Lobster prices are market rate. There are picnic tables outside to eat your take-out while it's hot. In an... More

Have been buying seafood here for years. It is a nice little shop where you can pick up fresh seafood. Haven’t had the food there but it looks good!

Sometimes we just get a big order of their hand cut onion rings, but mostly we go for the Haddock and chips. The whole fried clam plate is to die for as well. You won't find better seafood takeout in the area. Service is fast and friendly too.

Location is off the main road and hidden. The staff were very friendly and helpful. You order your food inside and either take it to go or eat outside. There are a few large picnic tables with umbrellas to eat at in the parking lot. It's a fish market/restaurant. There is a large menu of all kinds of seafood from... More

Love getting the fresh huge shrimp platters for holidays and parties. Best shrimp I ever had. Clams are cleaned through a multi cleaning process so they are tender sweet and no sand!!! They will boil and steam your fresh seafood there or take home and cook yourself. Freshest seafood anywhere!!!

Great seafood without the long travel to the shore. You know its got to be good when the parking lot is always full.

On my first visit to the Boston area, we made a run to the Lobster Barn. I was hoping for some fresh, east coast seafood and this was a good place to get it. My companion's mom is a regular, so she ordered for us. Scallops, whole clams, cod, and fish chowder were on our lunch menu. Served alongside were... More
