Here is the Swampie buzz of the Isaac’s  on the Waterfront  Restaurant  in  Plymouth

My Mother’s 85th birthday lunch at Isaacs in Plymouth was wonderful. We sat on the porch Where to Dine on the Plymouth WaterFront -Isaac’s Restaurantbecause we can be loud and the deck was a bit windy. The hostess was more than glad to rearrange the furniture to accommodate my mother’s wheelchair. The food was served promptly,hot,cooked well and yummy. We have never had a bad meal there and it was great for a wheelchair, nice ramp and an elevator.

 

we took two of my aunts and 1 uncle to Isaacs in Plymouth. The food was very good. Service, very good. Our server had an excellent sense of humor. Food included swordfish, filet minion, a chefs salad, among other things I cant remember for entres’. deserts included grapenut custard pudding and tiramasu. EVERYTHING was great but the filet. It was over cooked on the outside making it tough to cut. Reminded my of beef jerky tough. Flavor was good. It was a little pricey for my wallet, but I would eat there again.

Isaac’s Plymouth service was spot on was there when needed and left you alone when not needed food was great left with full belly

I had a nice lunch here last Saturday, I went with the Waterfront Seafood Medley consisting of schrod (haddock), scallops, and shrimp. Perfect. The baked potato was a bit overcooked and dry, squash pureed which was ok but I prefer mashed or chunked for more texture. They have locally brewed Mayflower pale ale which work well with the meal.

Okay, so I took my kids for baked stuff lobster. They were very busy but no wait, we were 229007_10208779060931182_1383563357227762129_nseated right away and waters with a plate of lemons brought right over. Maureen was are server, so nice! She tool our drink order and went over the specials. She brought our drinks with, fresh out of the oven, dinner rolls and took our order. All 3 of us had the Baked Stuff Lobster, it was so good! What an amazing deal for $19.95!!!
I know there has been mixed reviews but I would highly recommend Isaac’s!

Here is the Swampie buzz of the Tavern on the Wharf    Plymouth

Tavern on the Wharf – had dinner there last night. 3 of us sat at the bar we were served by Janelle, she was great and knowledgeable of food and the drinks I overheard her talking to others about (as well as us). 2 of us started with the cream of mushroom soup, this had a nice taste and fresh huge sliced mushrooms. 1 ordered the side Cesaer looked fresh and crispy (person is not much to describe taste, LOL) 1 had the Rib Eye topped with caramelized onions special (great taste and cooked just as asked) 1 had the Mac and Cheese with chicken (*he said he’d order it again) so it must’ve been good. I had the cheeseburger on a brioche roll, little overcooked but I’m not going to send a burger back, came with a big amount of fries, i was pretty full from the soup so i ate the most of the burger minus most of the roll… Yes, it is a great place to eat

We had a group of about 15 classmates who gather monthly for lunch. Swampi Sabrina helped arrange todays lunch at The Tavern on the Wharf in Plymouth. We had a nice quiet room, two very efficient and personable servers. The food was excellent, ample portions and reasonably priced. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer time. Many of us said they would certainly return.

Just had a wonderful anniversary dinner at Tavern on the Wharf! My husband had the steak tips and they were so flavorful. I had the short rib bucatini and the sauce was out of this world! I also really enjoyed the lemon drop martini. We will be back!

This is at Tavern on the Wharf in Plymouth. This is from the new fall menu. Carpaccio and 12180170_10206767165291928_153889386_nliterally the best I’ve ever had. Amazing. Some creative menu options.   this one had a generous sprinkling of fresh herbs. As well as some roasted and sliced something– maybe artichoke. Can’t remember. But it was crunchy and spicy. But that is not how it is usually prepared. That’s why I appreciated this creative twist.

We went to Tavern on the Wharf yesterday for lunch, beautiful day and we sat outside. We both decided to get the Portside Biscay – it was great tasting, the 12106936_10206465833019237_2627477275980005072_nonly thing I was a bit disappointed with was there really wasn’t much for the price of 26 no other sides come with it. I counted 3 lobster claws, 4 shrimp (with shells on tail), 5 scallops, some lump crab (this was hubby’s plate – i think he got more crab than me) 1 potato cut into 1/4’s and croutons that were crunched up over it, with I guess maybe couple of tablespoons of lobster bisque as a sauce. It was good, but for the price I definitely would not get that again, just didn’t seem worth the price for the size.
We are definitely going back, but lesson learned

After a bike ride at Myles Standish State Forest, we went to Tavern on the Wharf, since we missed the last Swamp Mob. The food was great – we both had the Mr. Piggy burgers, which we huge and cooked to order. I had the Parmesan truffle fries – yum!! Rick had the onion rings, also very good. Lucky us, they were trying to finish up their summer beers, so we were able to get $3 drafts! The only problem was with the service. We mentioned to both the hostess and our server that we were Swampies and they were both familiar with the group. Our server, however, took a while to get to our table to take our drink order, she wasn’t unpleasant, but she wasn’t particularly cheerful and welcoming either. She brought out food promptly, but then disappeared and never checked back in with us about our meals. She eventually reappeared, but then disappeared again and it took forever to get our check. Bottom line, food was great, but they’ll need to pay attention to their service.

My husband and I tried Tavern on The Wharf in Plymouth today.We decided to sit at the bar for a drink and late lunch.I liked the look of the restaurant.The bar had a pretty good selection of draft beer ( which we each ordered).Its kind of a mixed review on the food, My husband ordered a classic cheeseburger and upgraded to the truffle fries.He liked the burger, it was a half pound and nicely cooked, both he and I thought the $4 upgrade for the truffle fires was pricey, they seemed like they just had some Parmesan and garlic sprinkled on top.I had the lobster roll, which was just ok for the price, I found lots of little pieces of shell in it and the brioche roll was a little too much bread for the amount of lobster in my opinion.I felt it was a little pricey for the amount of lobster at $22…….. I would try it again but I wouldn’t order the lobster roll again.

We just stopped at our favorite restaurant for sweet smoked chicken wings and homemade Where to Dine on the Plymouth WaterFront -Surfside Smokehouse Restaurantbaked mac and cheese at my daughters request after spending the weekend at BID! We love Surfside Smokehouse

So given the great reviews Hubby and the family decided to head to Surfside Smokehouse in Plymouth and we ARE SO HAPPY WE DID !!! Restaraunt was pretty quiet tonite which was nice and the view is beautiful at sunsetALL THE FOOD, was amazing. We brought a ton home but tried a bit of a bunch of stuff because we just couldn’t decide lol Pulled pork quesadillas , Fried chicken , kielbasa, ribs, shoulder burnt ends, diff bbq sauces, mac n cheese, corn, potatoe salad and cole slaw ..one thing was better than the next. Our server Denise was fantastic and attentive and Jimmy Agnew and Cheryl checked in numerous times to see how everything was. We will DEFINITELY be back and can’t wait for our leftovers which should last us two more meals lol.

 

We went to Surfside Smokehouse last night, and it never disappoints! Friendly conscientious staff, excellent service and delicious food! I had the Surf and Turf burger. That’s a burger Where to Dine on the Plymouth WaterFront -Surfside Smokehouse Restauranttopped with lobster and fried onion straws, Swiss, and lime aioli. You can choose either have one ($12), two($14), or three patties($16). You can get it with either fries or a different side. I choose to have cabbage and kale slaw, I love it! My husband had a special, it was a braised short rib sandwich. He chose to have his with grilled asparagus as a side. The meat just melted in your mouth! This restaurant has the closest to the water view in Plymouth. It’s a million-dollar view and excellent food. When it gets warmer the outside deck downstairs is open. This is one of our favorite places to go in Plymouth, we will definitely be back!

surfside3We started with kielbasa and pineapple “candy”. My son had a burger & I got the special = short ribs. Both very tasty and finely cooked. Finished with bread pudding & mascerated strawberries. They have 2 of their own BBQ sauces… standard sweet flavor style & a mustard blend, both very tasty.

Took my wife out to Surfside Smokehouse in Plymouth for dinner tonight. It was our first time there, and we sure weren’t disappointed!! I had the Fried Chicken Special and Lynn had the Blackened Salmon Tacos. My chicken was crispy, moist, and very tasty. She iked her tacos so much that she ate both of them, which she rarely does (usually has leftovers the next day). My chicken came with cheese grits, which I was reluctant to try because I’m not much of a grits fan, but I’m glad I did! We both also had the kaleslaw, which we agreed was better than any slaw we’d ever had in a restaurant before. For dessert, we shared the Macerated Strawberries, which were light and delicious. We also met the manager Jimmy Agnew, who showed us around the part of the restaurant where they are planning to have our Swamp Mob breakfast buffet. A great meal for a good price, in a fantastic location on the Plymouth harbor – what more could we ask for?

We went to Surfside Smokehouse for lunch today – Good food and good service. 2 sliced briskets …1 with baked beans and one with mac and cheese. We enjoyed our meals and I came home with some left for later! I think I would have preferred the mac and cheese with a traditional toasted cracker crumb topping rather than the crushed goldfish (?) spooned on top. (Probably because the mac and cheese is prepared stovetop rather than baked?) But it was good. We expect to visit again before they close for the season.

We just returned from an early dinner at the Surfside Smokehouse and it was AWESOME.
My husband Bob choose the Surfside for his birthday dinner and it definitely lived up accolades it has been receiving.
For an appetizer we split the lobster and corn hush puppies, which were tasty and ample in size. For our entrees Bob ordered the selfie (your choice of 2 meats and two sides) He picked the brisket and the pulled pork, with the Mac and cheese and coleslaw for sides, I ordered the smoked kielbasa with a side of beans and we shared everything. The meats were flavored nicely and all the accompanying sauces were tasty. The beans had a nice “bite” to them and the Mac and cheese was perfect, not too heavy or overpowering. For beverages, we went with the lemonade, which was some of the best we’ve had. We left with full bellies and a bag of leftovers to enjoy tomorrow.

Where to Dine on the Plymouth WaterFront- CabbyShack Restaurant & Pub

The CabbyShack, on historic Plymouth harbor, is the spot for gorgeous views, tons of seats topunder the sun, live music all season long, and seafood so fresh it practically jumps straight from the ocean to the kitchen. The basic boiled lobster weighs in at about a pound and a quarter. But those in the know ask for the super-sized three-and-a-half pound Big Man’s Lobster. Equally eye-popping is the ‘Big Shack’ Roll. It’s the biggest lobster roll in town, overflowing from a grilled buttered roll. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, the CabbyShack sells thousands of them a week. It’s the perfect summer meal, for the perfect summer day. The CabbyShack’s menu is loaded with fun summer foods like hand battered onion rings, colossal shrimp cocktail, golden fried clams, and — believe it or not — some of the best bar pizzas on the South Shore. But the dish they’re most famous for is their award winning clam chowder, served in a fresh baked bread bowl. Rich chowder, big lobster rolls, and fun all summer long, keeps everybody coming back, to the CabbyShack.

Here is the Swampie buzz of the Cabby Shack  Plymouth

My family went  to cabby shack in Plymouth. This is long. The short story is we would go back, just not for oysters.  We went with my toddler, husband, his sister, and some extended family they hadn’t met before, north coast people.
It was a pats game day so they sat us the opposite side of the place. No big deal but I have noticed a lot of places try to put my kid and I far far away from everyone else.12509786_10103687076655723_3119104194620674985_n
We had a whole variety of food preferences and their menu had plenty of options. My immediate family is from Denver, so my sister in law and I decided to try oysters. But we were afraid to commit to the half dozen so we asked the server to bring us two and then when they weren’t awful, we asked her to make the order in to a half dozen. She was really nice and helpful, and it turned out she had never had an oyster either which was funny.
She couldn’t tell us if they added salt or if that was just the sea salt flavor coming through, so then she had to go back to the kitchen to find out. Turns out that is simply the sea flavor. Out of the three I ate one of them almost tasted like it had sand in it which I know from watching Alton Brown means it wasn’t cleaned very well.
Ultimately, some of us ordered burgers and some of us ordered seafood and everyone seemed pretty happy. We took a picture with the giant lobster and follow some directions to get my kiddo his free meal, which was cool.
Oh and they were doing some sort of spin the wheel thing probably because of the game, and my ticket was pulled and I won a bag of swag! I never knew how badly I needed a poncho and bottle opener sombrero for my bottles of beer.

cabbyshack2Went to Cabby Shack in Plymouth yesterday. Hubby and I both got a cup of clam chowder, I had the lobster roll, and he had the Cape Cod reuben. Chowda was thick, but delicious, with quite a few big chunks of clam (bonus for me!). Lobster roll had a decent amount of mayo, though not too much. Cape Cod Reuben was huge. Pleasant and prompt service (I know that has been a complaint in the past). All in all a good experience.

Cabby Shack tonight…haven’t been since last summer. Sat on the lower patio outside, right next to the entertainment (The Honey Bears, very good). The atmosphere is so great, the food was good (not great, unfortunately) and (even more unfortunately) the service was bad.
Something has changed with the food since I was there last. I had the bisque. There was only one tiny piece of lobster claw in it and it was the consistency of soft mashed potatoes. The kids liked the pizza. The fried fish had a nice crust but not a lot of flavor.
We asked three times for silverware and finally had to get up ourselves and seek out our server. Another employee who apparently could not obtain forks, had dropped off our meals and we had been sitting for quite some time unable to eat!

Clam Chowder non better… Shrimp was overpriced for portion size.. The new fries not good… Clean friendly.. I’ll definitely be back..

I was looking for crab cakes. When reading the menu I was disappointed there was none except on the dinner menu. I asked the bartender if perhaps I could get 1 plain crab cake and a salad. He checked with the chef and soon I had the best crab cake I’ve found so far. And the salad was awesome. While waiting for my meal a Veteran came in with his wife thinking the special for vets was that day too. It wasn’t. The waitress very nicely said let me talk to someone I’ll be right back. A gentleman came out and said I’m sorry for the confusion but it was for Veterans Day only but since you came today I will honor you and thank you for your service. Have a seat and we will do it. I was so honored to see such action. I would go to Cabby Shack on a regular basis if I lived close enough. Excellent food and excellent attitude!

Really nice dinner at the Waterfront in Plymouth tonight. Ordered the Quahogs…delicious. I had the seafood casserole and my handsome date had the surf and turf. My casserole was missing the advertised bread crumb topping and the surf and turf wasn’t hot off the grille, but it was amazing! We mentioned these things to the waiter after we had cleaned our plates (note no pictures…it was great) and the manager, John, came over to make it right. We told him it was so good, but he still bought us a round to make up for it. Great service from our waiter, Tom, and the visit from the manager was just good customer service. We will definitely be back!!

Another good meal at the Waterfront Bar & grill. Good Duxbury oysters, love their seasoned bar fries. DD got a plain Caesar salad and we split their crab cake Cesar. Both were great.

Last night at 7:30 the wait for a table at East Bay Grille (outside) was an hour and a half so we went across the street to the Waterfront Bar & Grill. There were two seats at the outdoor bar so we took those. We had half a dozen Duxbury oysters that were very fresh and sweet. We weren’t super hungry so we had calamari and spicy bar fries with cheese sauce. Both were cooked perfectly. The order of fries was huge and we were stuffed. The bar tenders were attentive and pleasant

Last day of vacation so hubby and I decided we should make it a good one! Went to Waterfront Bar & Grill in Plymouth for an early dinner. We sat on the deck upstairs (we have two little ones so thought they’d enjoy watching the street and water, which they did). We started with the Kettle Chips, which the kids liked but I thought would have been better if they’d been seasoned a bit. I had the baked stuffed shrimp with a baked potato and hubby had steak tips with rice pilaf. The stuffing in the shrimp was very good but for $22, I felt the portion was small. The menu notes “jumbo shrimp” but these were on the smaller side, butterflied underneath so they appeared a bit larger. The veggies again were not seasoned. Hubby said his steak tips were “eh, ok” and mentioned they were under seasoned as well. Our son had a hot dog and fries which he nearly finished. Our two year old had spaghetti which she decided not to eat (the princess changes her mind every 5 seconds these days!) but I did try her meal and the sauce was (again!!) under seasoned. Overall, hubby and I agreed that the atmosphere was nice and our waitress was very attentive, but food alone wouldn’t drive us back there again.

Headed to Plymouth with hopes of eating outside on a day that threatened to rain. We lucked 10636525_10153038404538412_2419852621236823825_oout with the weather and sat on the top deck of Waterfront Bar and Grill to order our fourth lobster roll of the season. Interestingly enough, we decided to split a lobster roll…something I’d warned Paula I’d never do. But apparently one CAN have too much of a good thing. But we will soldier onward for our fellow Swampies in the quest for the best lobster roll.
Waterfront’s menu said, “seasoned sweet chunks of lobster meat on a buttered, toasted torpedo roll with lettuce and tomatoes, and a choice of French fries, coleslaw, or rice.” (Lettuce and tomato were on the side. There was lettuce in the roll, but I didn’t notice it till I looked at the photo!!) The market price was $23.00. (Most expensive of the five places we checked in Plymouth today.)
The verdict? This roll was crispy; the lobster was tender and fresh. The mayo was subtle, but visible. No other additions. It was …good…but not great, and not first on our list of the four we’ve tried.  (Check out the Great Swampie Lobster Roll Hunt)

Dined at Waterfront Bar & Grill in Plymouth last night with my wife. We sat outside at the bar. Great atmosphere and great time. The food was delicious and the waitstaff was very friendly. Oysters for appetizers were delicious as always. I had the blackened salmon. Which was cooked perfect. My wife ordered the short ribs and enjoyed them very much. No desserts as we very much satisfied with our meals. I will definitely return here again this summer.

Where to Dine on the Plymouth WaterFront- Lobster Hut

For 40 years, the Lobster Hut, located right on Town Wharf in the heart of historic waterfront  Plymouth, Massachusetts, has been an icon of the area. From its classic red, glowing “Lobster Hut” sign to dining that has become known as “Seafood at its Best”, this is more than a simple dining experience, it’s a piece of seaside Americana.

Lobster Hut – Seafood dining at its best in Plymouth MA Back in the early 1970’s, the Lobster Hut was little more than a small stand that sold a few items. However it wasn’t long before both locals and tourists alike started clamoring for more of the “fresh-off-the-boat” seafood they were serving. Today, that which was once only a humble list of items has grown to a menu of over fifty. The Lobster Hut has even been voted as America’s Hometown favorite in the area of “Best Seafood” and “Best of the Best” eight years in a row.

Seafood! My wife and I dined at the Lobster Hut at the Plymouth waterfront last night. It closes for the winter on sunday. We ordered the seafood platter for two with an order of onion rings. The food was hot and plentiful. Two good sized pieces of fish, sea scallops, 11885262_1200715229954051_6546320845775522909_nshrimp and whole belly clams (extra cost). The food was fresh and delicious. I love onion rings and the Lobster Hut’s are hand cut, sweet and satisfy this onion ring lover’s craving. The batter is light and not greasy. Although popular with the tourists in the summer and crowded, my wife and I have never been disappointed with quality of the seafood.

My husband and I decided to take a ride to Plymouth last name night. After walking around for awhile we decided to find something to eat. Everywhere was crowded. Some very loud which my hubby does not like. Ended up at lobster hut. I was a bit skeptical at first. Ordered our food and sat outside by water. When food came out I was glad we came her. I got the lobster roll, it was 11.99 and very good toasted roll stuffed with lobster just the right amount of mayo. Husband got clam strip roll with fries looked very good and there was nothing left so I guess he enjoyed it.

My husband and I found ourselves in Plymouth. For us, for seafood in Plymouth there is no other choice than Lobster Hut. Line wasn’t bad – moved quickly, we ordered fried clam strips, 2 cups of chowder, a jumbo lobster roll and 2 drinks to the tune of $45. It has gotten more and more expensive – as I know everywhere has but the portions have also gotten smaller and smaller. The food was outstanding but I’d have to question the amount for what you get..

The best seafood eatery in plymouth by far. Ive been going there for over 15 years and will do so for 15 more. Its the only place i eat when i go to plumouth,especially in the spring and summer when you can eat and overlook the harbor and the boats coming in. The lobster roll is a must and a seafood platter for 2 is also great. I would recommend Lobster Hut to everyone and anyone.

Been to lots of seafood establishments throughout New England and by far the fisherman’s platter here should be the states dish . Lots of bang for the buck

Lobster Hut has  the most delicious seafood.  my family  enjoyed fantastic lobster rolls, fried seafood, and absolutely beauitful  views of the harbor. In the fried seafood platter, everything was cooked perfectly: the scallops were nice and tender, the fish was flaky, and everything was crisp, golden brown. It also comes with nice and crunchy fried clams and fried shrimp, coleslaw, and french fries.

The Lobster Hut is one of my favorite seafood spots on the South Shore.   Everything is so fresh. I always get the clam strips which are hands down the best I’ve had, but the broiled seafood is great as well. They also have options for non seafood fans as well. The tables are always clean and staff is always friendly. It’s not fancy by any means but it’s perfect for a quick meal.

I ordered a lobster roll and crab cakes. The food was ready in 5 to 10 minutes. What more can I really say though..It. was. DELICIOUS. The roll had a lot of lobster meat, enough to ooze out of the roll when taking a bite!  The inside of   has such a home-y atmosphere! It looks traditional, but feels really comfortable. Great service!

Very good fried seafood, scallops, shrimp and clams being exceptional. Seafood platter easily feeds 2 or 3. We visited when the weather was 55 degrees but indoor seating kept us warm.
Since Lobster Hut is on the wharf we did not expect to be so delighted.

My husband and I share the fishermen platter every time we go and it’s perfect for two people. The breading they use is out of this world good. We love this place so much.
