Moulton's Seafood, Medford - it merits a thread of its own

rlh | Jun 12, 200808:15 AM

Finally tried this place after reading so many positive mentions of it embedded in other related threads - wow - why did we wait so long? - and why can't I find a thread dedicated to it?

The service and seafood quality here is amazing - and the prices are fair to bargains.

The mussels in wine and garlic butter we started with were big fresh mussels properly steamed open without any grit and what's more tasty that this simple preparation? The green salad was romaine, sweet onion, and roma tomatoes - all fresh, dry, and tasty with zinfandel viniagrette.

My grilled swordfish was large, fresh and perfectly-cooked. The haddock broiled with breadcrumbs was equally great. The mixed vegetable side was lame - seemed like a microwave bag from the grocery store with no seasoning, though not overcooked. The baked potato was - well, a baked potato...

The cheesecake for dessert fine for what it was - plain vanilla and very dense (non-NY style).

The bar was crowded at 7:30p last night but there was plenty of space in the dining room and server David was really pleasant, helpful, and responsive.

The total tab for food, a beer, and two glasses of wine was $60 before tip. We will be back often - didn't even try the fried part of the menu.
