We thank all our customers for their trust in us to deliver great food everyday.

They plan having a daily

Here is some of the buzz from theirAugust 2017 soft opening, they are now opened of September 2017.

We attended a soft opening and this place is FANTASTIC! We’ve tried many places for Indian food that stands out and this place is a winner all around! Excellent customer service, the food was wonderful and the renovations to the building look elegant and trendy, I wish we could give more stars!! The samosas were tender and flavorful, the naan was perfectly seasoned, the chicken tikka masala was fresh and had the perfect amount of heat, everything was on point, this place is sure to be a hot spot! Congratulations!

Our first taste was a big hit! We got takeout (since the Patriots were on tv tonight) and when I picked up my order, I could tell from the enticing aromas in the restaurant it was going to be good. From the hefty samosas packed with savory veggies in a sturdy dough, to the creamy tikka masala, to the beautiful boneless chicken biryani, every dish was delicious. My husband especially liked the garlic naan with its generous blanket of garlic! We’ll definitely be back – glad to have you in the neighborhood!

fiance and I had the pleasure of being at the Soft opening today for lunch. Every thing was great, staff was incredibly nice and always helpful (especially great to see on day 1 soft open). Food was so great: pricing, quantity, and quality were all worth it. We were stuffed. Definitely excited to make this a regular spot.
Also- WOW on the incredible interior renovation. The place is beautiful.

Awesome food coupled with great service. Glad to taste that they kept food items taste so authentic which reminded me of food days in India. Go for EXTRA SPICE on all their food items if you tooth for spicy taste. Strongly recommend this place. Keep it up Guys.

Kelly’s Landing in Weymouth Closing December 2016

Update September 2017   True North Kitchen and Bar has opened in the Kelly’s location

Kelly’s Landing  will be closing on December 20th . North Weymouth landmark, Kelly’s Landing has been serving up the freshest seafood, steaks & endless specials since 1979.    Many folks have family celebration over the years at Kelly’s and many will be said to say good bye. 12108214_1023345044384651_9136358710493497117_n

Rumor has that it will be It’s going to be called True North. The new owner is a nice guy and a few of the Kelly’s staff are going to work at True North. It will be a great new addition to North Weymouth.

The location went for sale back in May.

Kelly’s did have a deal on Restaurant.com  make sure that you exchange it for another local restaurant

Here is some of the buzz on Kelly’s

I used one half of the dining room as a function room for my boys first communions. Everyone raved about the food.

You can not ask for a finer staff, DJ or better karaoke singers in Weymouth. Every person is treated with kindness and cheer. Paul Q who hosts karaoke every Saturday night is the best in the business. The patrons are the nicest people in town. Everyone is treated like family. My favorite location.

Whether it’s the steak tips fish and chips, boneless buffalo wings, scallops, or a burger the food is always great. Beers are ice cold and as others have said the staff is awesome.

Best food around for price, quality, and quantity! Comfortable env., friendly and clean. The owners are wicked nice always smiling and the bartender, well, what else can I say about Maryellen, she’s a gorgeous hard working neighborhood girl! You must stop in and grab a bite!!! The cooks are awesome, as well!!!

It’s always sad to have a local restaurant close especially one that has been open for more than 35 years!

Update from Wicked Local Weymouth

After 37 years in business, the staple neighborhood restaurant and pub will close its doors for good Dec. 22. Trish Nutter and Robin Tlasek, two of Kelly’s Landing’s four current owners, cited rising expenses, including the cost of seafood, as the main reason for putting the restaurant on the market.

“The cost of doing business has gotten high, especially for seafood restaurants,” Nutter said. “About 75 percent of what we serve is seafood.”

Joe and Janet Campbell of Cohasset are purchasing the Bridge Street restaurant. They plan to close for several months to make renovations, then open what will be called North Kitchen and Bar. Joe Campbell previously managed Atlantica, the Olde Salt House, the Cohasset Harbor Inn and Brisa in Cohasset.

ATTENTION: As many of you already know Memphis Joe’s is going out of business. I am just the promoter so I do not know any details about what or who bought it or anything else. Just want to let everyone know the hours and days till closing .. Those hours are this Thursday- Sunday this week from 3pm- close. This is the last weekend Memphis Joe’s will be open. So get down there to have a drink and say good bye to Memphis Joe’s ..

If you have purchase their recent groupon, contact groupon they are usually good about giving refunds. 

Here is some of the Swampie Buzz – mostly negative

Went to Memphis Joes BBQ Sports Bar in Weymouth (450 Washington St). Had a groupon so we figured it was worth a try. Lots of BBQ (obviously) but also had some TexMex. Portions were big. Prices were average (pictured combo plate was $16). Food was amazing. They were short staffed so once we got our food, waitress didn’t come back til the end and we needed drink refills. Husband loved it so much he brought our son back today and said the service was much better and attentive. Mac and cheese was excellent. Veggies were tasty and not heavy on the oil (which I find in most places). The cornbread was almost cake like. The pulled pork had a different taste (waitress said Rosemary?) but I loved it because it gave it just a hint of something different. And the ribs were all meat and no fat. Definitely will be back.

We’ve driven past this restaurant near the junction of Rt 18 and Rt 53 in Weymouth so many times without stopping. In the interest of food science and comparison purposes (my last review was Kinfolk’s!) we stopped on a rainy Sunday afternoon. They had just opened within the hour and we were the first customers. It is an older, dark, still smokey-smelling sports bar atmosphere with walls of televisions. We ordered BBQ brisket and pulled pork sandwiches. I subbed the fries for mac-n-cheese. The mac-n-cheese was excellent! The coleslaw was served in a condiment cup-sized plastic cup. Since it wasn’t memorable in taste I stopped complaining about the small portion. My pulled pork sandwich on a Kaiser bun however was very tasty with a slab of bacon. A fried pickle (not worth eating) adorned the top of the bun. My husband’s brisket sandwich was a bit dry and he had to ask for additional BBQ sauce. It was OK but not great. My husband was missing the smokey infusion from Kinfolk’s. The fries were done well.
All in all, it was a good, quick stop on our way home but not a destination site. In other words, for us it’s a one and done.

I dined this afternoon at Memphis Joes BBQ in Weymouth. I will not get into specifics but if you enjoy good BBQ avoid this joint like the plague.

I do not recommend Memphis Joes in Weymouth. The service was horrible, she took my boyfriends order and walked away without taking mine. I order chicken mac and cheese. The discription said mac and cheese with breaded garlic parm chicken. What I got was a bowl of elbow mac, with chicken over it in some kind of liquid not sure what it was. There was clearly no cheese. Don’t waste your time or money..

Kevin Hynes

2016 marks Kevin’s 35th year as a restaurateur on the South Shore. He opened his first restaurant in 1981 in Kingston, after deciding to exclusively pursue his part-time cooking over his career as a Weymouth police officer. He resigned and took a chance. Stockholders is his 10th South Shore restaurant, not including the numerous others for which he has consulted or assisted partners in opening, and his 1st in his hometown of Weymouth. Things started in 1963 when a dishwasher called in sick at the Hingham restaurant where his mother was a hostess, the Red Coach Grill. He signed up to fill in and never left the kitchen again. Working his way up over the years under the supervision of Chef Bobby Hackett, from dishwasher to prep cook, fry cook, line cook, and finally head chef, he quickly realized that his true calling was to be in the restaurant business and not in the business of law enforcement. After graduating from Bridgewater State College, fulfilling his duty in the U.S. Marine Corps, and his career as a police officer in both Hingham and Weymouth, his real life began as did his mission to bring great quality food, in sizeable portions, at reasonable prices to all areas of the South Shore. This mission started in 1981 and is still ongoing in 2015.

Breakfast lovers dig into favorite spots in Weymouth & Brockton

Two local  diners got some positive press  about their breakfast & location  in the Boston Globe Uncle Charlie’s Finer Diner in Weymouth  and JJ Cafe in Brockton Breakfast lovers dig into favorite spots in Weymouth & Brockton

Here is a snippit from the article 

In Brockton, breakfast is a booming business  at JJ’s Cafe on Main Street, where the sun streams in through the windows of the former pizza place, still crispy-new spotless after almost three years.

Even though owner and chef JJ Fernandes, a Cape Verde native, once cooked for US presidents and other dignitaries at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel, he tired of his 30-plus years commuting into Boston.

Now customers travel to him.

“We drove from Boston to come here,” said Pedro Fernandes (no relation) of Dorchester, sharing a table with three female friends. They learned about JJ’s by word of mouth.

“It’s about 25 minutes,” Pedro Fernandes said, “but it’s worth the drive.”

There’s plenty of the regular stuff, like two eggs, two pancakes or French toast, home fries, and sausage or ham ($8). But remnants of creme brûlée French toast lay on a plate shared by Gomes and Jessica Araujo of Dorchester.

“This is just an appetizer,” Araujo said, while the table waited for their “real” orders.

Generations of breakfast lovers are raised on Uncle Charlie’s Finer Diner in Weymouth, open since 1987.

“We’ve been coming here for, like, years,” said Diane Higgins of Rockland, who was there with her daughter, Emily, home for the day from Regis College.

Before coming home, Emily told her mother she wanted a veggie omelet ($9) from Uncle Charlie’s.

“I mean, look how much you get,” Diane said. “The omelets are fabulous.”

“It’ll all be gone, too,” Emily added.

Here is some buzz on Uncle Charlie’s from the Swampies

Have enjoyed Uncle Charlie’s for breakfast for over 25 years. Always great coffee food and service. Everyone is friendly

I just went there for the first time a few months ago… I was back within a few weeks! Their food is great and their waitstaff is extremely knowledgable on the entire menu. I hope to be going back soon!!

And on JJ’s Cafe in Brockton

Jjs Cafè. ..hands down…if I could move in I would…

This morning we decided to check out JJ’s Cafe in Brockton. We were immediately seated by Shane. He took our drink order -coffee for my friend and tea for me. We were pleasantly surprised at how cheery the restaurant was and that there were cloth napkins and a little vase of flowers on the table. Tables were so clean they shined. Another waitress came over with a box of assorted teas for me to choose from. I choose the green tea ( by default as I forgot my glasses and couldn’t read the labels). Coffee and tea was immediately served. Coffee was fresh and piping hot. Shane promptly returned to take our order. Farmer’s omelet for my breakfast companion. The omlet had American cheese,spinach, peppers, onions and tomatoes. It was served with Awesome home fries, peppers and onions and a grilled English muffin. I opted for the cheese omlet, with home fries, peppers and onions and a grilled English mufflin. The food was fresh and delicious. Might I add piping hot. Two different waitresses kept checking in to see if we needed more coffee or tea. Shane was so upbeat and friendly. I told him I was a member of the Hockomock Diners Club. We chatted a bit more. Soon after Shane delivered a complimentary piece of Creme brûlée French toast. It was fabulous!!!
The chef and owner stopped by to see how everything was. I told him I was going to immediately share how wonderful his place was with all of the Hockomock peeps. It seems he was a chef in Boston for many year’s and decided to open his own place. You can definitely tell. Service was spot on and food was delicious. Did I mention that it was piping hot? I will definitely be returning to this hidden gem. Next time I will be ordering that lovely creme brûlée French toast. I almost forgot -they make and sell their own hot sauce!

Anniversary Date Night Restaurant in Braintree MA Area

Swampies this was a popular thread about a special anniversary date night in the Braintree area.

Anniversary Date Night Restaurant in Braintree MA area

My anniversary is on Saturday  and we are going to the movies in Braintree. I have never gone to the Cheesecake Factory because I heard it is very crowded. Should I go? Or go somewhere else in the area?  

Most Swampies are not fans of the chain restaurants 

Here are some Swampies responses

Happy anniversary! I happen to really like the Cheesecake Factory but I wouldn’t think of it as a special occasion place. I would have to agree with those that recommend Stockholders in Weymouth.

Believe it or not, a lot of the food at Cheesecake comes in FROZEN, it’s made at another location. I’ve also enjoyed meals on special occasions at Bella’s in Norwell, Scarlet Oak in Norwell, and a place in Braintree square, the name eludes me…begins with an S…  (Sintra’s Braintree Square)

For an anniversary, Stockholders gets my vote. Top notch food, service. Cheesecake is a quick lunch, drink type place.

We just celebrated our anniversary sat Scarlet Oak Tavern and it was fabulous. Meat and seafood items.

It’s just another (over priced) chain restaurant… way better options out there – especially for a special occasion dinner!

Best place for a special (like an anniversary) dinner would be Ava Cucina in Cohasset for us. Small and cozy, family owned and operated and delicious Italian fresh cooked meals. My favorite is the ravioli in a gorgonsola cream sauce, another of my favorite meals from anywhere. Comes with chicken on the regular menu but if steak tips are on special get those on it instead! Perfect for a romantic meal!

On a side note. Did you pre buy your movie tickets? If not I recommend you do. It’s all assigned seating (and huge recliner seats) so you can just walk in right when the movie starts. We love Braintree Theater.
