Relatively inexpensive in Peabody/Danvers?

Hi all,

I'm looking for someplace to go post-movie on Sat. night in the Danvers/Peabody area. Key features would be relatively inexpensive (entrees @ $15 or below), alcohol available, and GOOD food!

Do you have any suggestions? I welcome them.

  1. Brody's Pub, downtown Peabody.

    1. Brutoli Peabody, Rte 1.

      Great food and prices. It suprised me actually

      1. Sam & Joe's Pizza, Danvers
        Four 66 Pub & Grill, Danvers

        1. The 99 in Lynnfield! Right off Rte.1S. & 128. It's on Salem St. Not at all like any 99 you've ever tried. Food is great! They have a large bar, too. Waitstaff is long-time and excellent. I think you'll be surprised!

            How is this 99 Restaurant different from the others in the chain?

            1. re: LindaWhit

              Ummm.......cause it's located in Lynnfield?

                  Hi Teacher's Kid,
                  I agree with shaebones above, BTW.
                  Brody's is the kind of neighborhood pub everyone wishes they had.

                    Harp, you seriously have a good memory. :-) And Brody's sounds like a great place - I've got a friend who lives in Peabody - might have to go visit her and meet her there.

                    1. re: LindaWhit

                      Good memory?
                      My wife would beg to differ on that :)
                      Brody's isn't a gastro-pub, "just" a super-solid neighborhood pub.


                      1. re: Harp00n

                        The steak and lamb tips are GREAT! I love the greek and portabello mushroom salads too.

                        1. re: shaebones

                          See, now "neighborhood pub" is just what the doctor ordered. (And good lamb tips? right up my alley!) Will definitely have to call my friend to get together there some weeknight. Thanks!

                          1. re: shaebones

                            for tips in that area my vote goes to Champion's Pub on Foster St. in Peabody. their onion rings also Rock.

                            1. re: ScubaSteve

                              Have to diagree w you there. I think Brody's tips are way better. A more local, neighbor hood feel there too.

                              1. re: shaebones

                                allrighty then. granted my last tip experience at Brodie's was more than a year ago, maybe i'll re-visit.

                                also, i find Champion's to be a bit cleaner than B's.

                                1. re: ScubaSteve

                                  You're right, before I forget it, Brodie's Pub, not Brody's is the correct spelling.
                                  I've been to Champion's and, although good, their steak tips are not in the same league as Brodie's, IMO. Their lamp tips, as shaebones' points, are also phenomenal. In my version of Tip World it's The Newbridge Cafe of Chelsea, in spite of The Purple Pimps, garnering the Gold. With Brodie's and Sadie's of Waltham duking it out for the Silver.

                                  As far as "I find Champion's to be a bit cleaner than B's.", I can't say as I've ever noticed much of a difference on that front. It's certainly not the Crow's Nest of Gloucester of which I'm sure you have no bar-stool-riding knowledge, oh skyscraper of a Hound! :-)

                                    have you been to Champion's since the re-model?

                                    1. re: ScubaSteve

                                      It's been awhile.
                                      The answer, admittedly, is no.


            2. I have lots of ideas.. any particular kind of food, atmosphere, etc? Gourmet, casual american, chinese, greek, italian, asian??? How late post movie? alot of North Shore shuts down early..I know Brothers Kouzina is open late on Sat, because they have good Greek music until 1 am. Calitiris Italian is open til at least 10 and i think 11 in the bar. I;ll come back with more..

                We go to Kouzina quite often. Very good. Great staff! They are open late.
                Highly recommend. Sylvan Street Grille, which is quite good. The Pub @ Century House.......Applebees @ Liberty Tree......99 which is across from the mall (not as good as the one in Lynnfield)......Daileys on 114, Middleton.....The 466 up the road on old Rte.1.
                Hope this helps.

              2. O'Fado on Walnut in Peabody is amazing.

                  Have you been back since they re-opened?

                  Normally I try to avoid restaurants on Valentine's Day. However, I remember going to O'Fado on Valentine's Day about ten years ago and having the paella for two. The meal was fabulous, and though the restaurant was busy, it was well under control.

                  1. re: srgoodman

                    Wait, reopened where? Are we talking about Akropolis, the resto that took O Fado's
                    place, or a new version of the original?
