Lime Rickey's-new beach shack in Marblehead

chompie | Jun 23, 200707:40 PM     3

Just came back from trying the new place on Devereaux Beach in Marblehead. It used to be Flynnies on the Beach. Didnt want to try it because I do not like Red Rock in Swampscott and it's the same attitudinal owner, but this was really fun and no attitutude. Its a beach shack basically with tables outside and inside. Very very casual. Good assortment of food on the menu for reasonable prices, especially considering it's the Red Rock people.
Our food was okay but it was the music and beach that really made the place. They have jazz on Sats from 530-830 and Sun from 3-6, although I think the town is giving them problems, so it may or may not contiue. The jazz group today was Alec Razdan and the ATrain. The kid is a 14 year old genius sax and clarinet player. The drummer was a lot of fun. He walked around and drummed on everyone's tables, drinks, bannisters, napkin holders and even baby's heads (gently of course). The ocean breeze, sunset, smells of fried clams and peppers and onions and fries, watching the waves and people playing volleyball made a perfect late afternoon. Ok, the food... It was fine. We had grilled salmon and swordfish kabobs and the salmon was fine and the kebabs were extremely fresh and moist,although actually kind of bland without any char on them. The fish portions were very small, for 13 and 14 bucks, maybe 4-5 oz? The potatoes were humungus with a nice fresh chive sour cream but they were cold and somewhat hard. Probably shipped over from Red Rock and reheated breifly. Came with roasted slices of zucchini, peppers and summer squash that were ok, but kind of rubbery. And actually hubby's biggest disappointment was actually the Rasberry Lime Rickey! It was very intense, kind of like a cup of Rose's lime juice, too acidic and too sweet. If we were in a nice restaurant the meal wouldve been a let down for the price but for the view and music it was worth it. You can get lots of other stuff from a 2 buck piece of pizza or hotdog to an 18 $ fishermans platter. Or hummus or even a Cuban sandwich. All in all with the shortage of casual outdoor dining, I would definitely come back. Especially during the music times. They also do breakfast til 11am.
