I avoided this restaurant for years, then went with friends and loved it! The fried New England shrimp are fantastic, tender, with a light, crunchy batter...these are plentiful (18 or more) and you can choose your sides. For a few dollars more, you can make it a three course meal and get a great seafood chowder and a petite dessert.... More

Went here for lunch. My husband enjoyed his potatoskins and said they were just right. I had the hummus salad with flat bread which was really good. Nice waitress and good prices.

Menu had many items to choose from. It was hard to decide. Food was good and the drinks were tasty. Prices were good too. Didn't order dessert but saw some and they looked good. Waitress was friendly and quick. I would go back again!

We have eaten there often It is a mecca for people with little kids...which means you might be subjected to noise and crying children. The other side of that is that it is very family friendly. The food and service were always good. Plenty of free parking.

Good service, reasonable pricing, good size portions. Hummus plate was very good. Haddock was okay, but not overly flavorful. I order my food grilled without butter or oil, so could have been my special requests I made. Drink specials were good. Request for a lemon was not granted - waitress could not find any?

Great place, great attitudes of employees. Enough to where I think I have eaten here about 18 times over the last two months. Of course that much they do get to know you.

I've visited 99s for lunch almost daily. They have a great menu and excellent service. The lobster rolls are awesome. The seafood chowder is unbelievable. Burgers and Prime Rib sandwich are amazing as well.
