In New England we have some of the best seafood on earth. But you won't find it here. Average at best, overpriced.

I was hoping this was going to be better. It was OK but not great. Maybe the time of year makes a difference. Service was outstanding. Ordered steamers (not real tasty); shared crab cakes ( good); clam chowder (OK, but not worth the calories); scallops were outstanding.

We end up this restaurant to try sea food after searching for restaurant around that area. Very satisfied with the sea food and awesome taste. Decided to hit this one at least once a month.

Seawitch has reliable New England seafood dishes without the long drive to Essex or Ipswich. The lobster rolls are great, and can be ordered the usual cold way, or warm with drawn butter, which is my favorite. The fried platters are ample and yummy.

My boyfriend and I love fresh fish that is not fried! The Seawitch is the only restaurant close to Lynnfield, Ma that we have found. Delicious food! Don't go for the atmosphere just great fresh fish! Yum!

Thought we would try this restaurant on RT 1 Peabody. You order before sitting down and then you pick a table and they bring the food to you. Had a cup of chowder, was ok, thick which isn't my preference. Had twin lobsters and they were great. Wait staff was attentive. Reasonably priced. Will visit again.

We stayed 20 minutes from Boston in a little city called Peabody. On the outside the restaurant doesn't look like much but once inside the people are friendly , efficient and the food is terrific , especially the chowder. The seafood is fresh and they have a varied menu.
