I'm pretty sure we had the a thread discussing this a couple of years ago, but that was a couple of years ago :) My husband and I are stuck in that "We don't know where to go except for the usual players" -- i.e., the chain restaurants, Grumpy White's, Villa Rosa (mostly for the drinks) and Abby Park very very occasionally.
We have a weekly date nite. We're not rolling in money. We both like a pub/tavern atmosphere but it's not paramount. Good, basic, American food -- my husband isn't as adventurous as I am. What do my fellow South Shore chowhounds suggest? (it also doesn't have to be directly in Quincy, btw).
