I'm staying in Danvers next week for a few days and looking for good chow. One of the visits will be to Rockport. We always go to the Lobster Pot or Amelias, but are there any other shacks hidden away that we don't know about? Flavs is definitely on the list for lunch - the food is superb!
Another meal will either have to be in Danvers, Salem, or anywhere within reasonable driving distance. Looking for medium priced good food (up to $15ish for an entree). Any nationality - Indian, Mexican etc. We like tasty good 'clean' food!
Thanks in advance.
Ya...Bob's is good too, and I haven't been there since my father's friend sold it to the current owners. My friend's in the area are always leaning towards Dube's which is on par with Bob's. I think I'll check out Bob's tonight with my daughter, to bring back some fond memories of my youth.
The Lobster Pool is a great seafood shack in Rockport. It's next to Halibut Point on the Rockport/Gloucester line...
Roy Moore's lobster shack, on Bearskin Neck. Lobster cooked on order, and a fraction of the price at Lobster Pool (which another poster recommended). Clam chowder and the view's not bad either.
I like Flav's breakfast- specifically, their anadama and nisu bread (as toast or French toast).
Delaney's pizza on Main St (eastern end) in - great linguica pizza (the vegetarian isn't as good).
Franklin Cape Ann on central Main St - great food, entrees $15-20.
Salem : Passage to India has decent northern Indian.
Danvers: Martha's Bread Basket on their main shopping street (?Water St) has decent s'wiches and breads.
Thanks for all the recs, folks!
Ended up going to Passage to India in Salem for what I can only say to be the best Indian I've tasted in the US (I'm English). Excellent and distinct flavors which is often a problem with Indian food over here. I did ask for the hot end of spicyness but they ignored it gave me American hot, ie. mild. Oh well, next time!
Lobster Pool delivered fab lobster as usual and they've improved their onion rings and fries for the better. Pig out!
