I am not from the Seacoast area, and I went into Fogarty's only because I went to a rughooking shop around the corner, and was hungry. What a happy accident to find this place.
This is a relaxed, friendly family restaurant with great menu choices... I wanted to try lots of the things on the menu, but settled on a fried clam roll and fries. Both were excellent, and I have to say that those were the best french fries I'd had in years. Really good!
If I hadn't eaten so much I would love to have tried some of their desserts, which looked great and are clearly a specialty. the whole place was clean, including bathrooms, and just looked well-run.
Both the hostess who seated me and my waitress were very pleasant and friendly. If I am remotely in the Berwick area, I will definitely use it as a reason to go back to Fogarty's. Wish I lived closer!
