Chow Worthy in Marshfield - Smelts, and Line Caught Swordfish

StriperGuy | Aug 28, 2002 11:05 AM

I have now had several excellent meals in the Brant's Rock area of Marshfield.

The Lobster Tale
278 Ocean Street
Marshfield, MA
(781) 834-3333
Their moto is: "We have fresh fish or no fish."

Is really excellent.

Tried to get my buddies to go for the fried clams, but they went with Calamari instead. Bums. The calamari was as good as I have ever had.

I had the Swordfish (a bit politically incorrect these days.) I asked if any of the fish was particularly good and the waitress said that a friend of hers had caught the swordfish yesterday.

It was a remarkable clean delicate sweet piece of fish. Perhaps the best piece of sword I ever ate and a large portion.

Another buddy had Lobster and sword in a light butter sauce over pasta. Swear there was a whole lobster in there and lots of sword.

The other buddy had salmon which was also done perfectly.

Another dish I have had there that was very good was cherry stone clams with swiss chard over pasta.

They also do smelts either broiled or fried that are very good.

Their fish and chips are also very good and they do sweet potato fries that I want to try.

Have not had the classics: chowder, fried clams, or lobster.

P.S. there is also a really nice bay beach right nearby!
