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.

Went here to buy some fish to make for our Italian Christmas Eve. I bought the freshest haddock I have ever eaten. It was so meaty and white. I bought it raw and cooked it at home. I also bought frozen octopus which was perfect, and fresh chopped clams to make stuffed quahogs. I recommend anyone to go here for... More

I reviewed Sea Witch about three years ago and had a chance to go again. This time it was excellent. Chowder, baked sole, seafood platter-all at the top of their game. Baked sole was plentiful and crumb coated and baked nicely with a very heaping portion of tender fish. Seafood platter included clams, scallops, smelts, fish and shrimp, and all... More
