Anyone Know If Hayward's in Lynn Has Their Outdoor Deck Open?

I drove by Haywards (twice!) a couple of weeks ago, and thought it looked like an interesting place; its location on Sluice Pond is definitely a big plus. I think I remember reading that they have outdoor dining. Does anyone know if the outdoor section is open yet?

  1. Deck or no deck, I wouldn't go near Haywards for the food. I was taken there for lunch a couple of years ago and, at middle age, was by far a "youngster" in the place. Service is groucy, too.

      Oh, oops. Maybe not then, huh? :-D Too bad, because there aren't many restaurants in the Boston area that have decks on ponds or lakes. I'll keep looking, I guess (I definitely have spring fever). Any other suggestions for lakeside dining near Lynn?

        Don't be so quick to cross it off your list, you'll never know unless you try and that was a couple of years ago. One person's fish eggs are another person's cavier.

          That's what I was thinking. Probably worth a shot to enjoy the view, maybe just keep it simple.

            Yeah, you're both right. Maybe I'll go to Hayward's for a burger and beer the next time the weather is as nice as it was last night (we opted for The Tides in Nahant instead last night--I just posted a thread on that, BTW).
