“Very good food”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

Enjoyed this place. Good seafood. Haven't tried anything else there, but we've heard the prime rib is excellent, too - go figure!

“Excellent”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Well let me start by saying we just loved it here. I had the prime rib, an end cut (queen) and I swear they gave me half a cow!! The garlic mashed potatoes were great and the special martini - Cinnamon Apple was to die for. My partner had the grouper in a caper sauce with asparagus. It was good althogh a bit soft. She also had the red potatoes which I sweat were 2 lbs worth. We left stuffed and happy. The prices were 19.99 for the prime rib and the fish was as well. But it was money well spend and the serice was excellent as well! I wish we lived closer!

“Seafood +”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We have dined at Balch's many times and have never been disappointed. Food is very good and prices are reasonable. The soups, especially the chowders are very good.

“Quantity over quality”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

The good news is you get lots of food. It's pretty good food, but kind of heavy-handed - thick and clunky lobster bisque, typical fried batter, stick-to-the-ribs mashed potatoes, etc. You do get salad and vegetable sides with your entrees. The lobster roll was good if a bit expensive. Balch's is not gourmet by any stretch of the imagination, but they do have specials such as $9.95 fried food Fridays and early bird specials. A bit above diner food. They bring you free thick cheesy dip with taco chips to start. $3.50 draft beer. Waitress was cheerful and very friendly and checked on us often. Atmosphere isn't bad, with the standard "seafood restaurant" decor of lighthouses and ocean views you see typically in Downeast Maine, even though the location is actually not far from the Delaware River. Only been here once, so can't rate a lot of the food.
