The Fours in Quincy

I need to mix it up a little as I have a few too many lunches in Marina Bay. Someone suggested The Fours in Quincy...has anyone been and what is good?

Oddly enough, I got a flyer in the mail today and their menu looks decent....lots of variety.

I am looking for a good salad. The salads I have been getting at the new Port 350 in Marina Bay have been disappointing.

  1. My husband works in Quincy and he says that The Fours is "OK pub grub", but if you want GOOD pub grub, you should hit the Fat Cat instead . . . .

    1. If you stick to the basics like "The Bobby Orr" (steak tips) or burgers, then the fours is great. Don't try and get crazy with the seafood, it's terrible.

      IMHO Grumpy White's is just as good as the fours for pub grub. I'm still waiting for a second attempt at Fat Cat before I see anything.

      1. Have to agree with the other posters, the Fat Cat is the place to go. When I think of the Fours, I think of football, nachos, burgers, and chicken fingers. Another option would be Alba's. Has anyone tried the Stadium? It really didn't look appealing to me and I don't know anyone who goes there.

          Been to the Stadium once. That was enough. Just mediocre, wings, burgers. Tasted like most of it was just reheated in a microwave. The Fours has a decent burger, sandwiches are ok. I keep trying to like Fat Cat, but it just has hit me. Tried it a couple times and have never been wowed. The food was good, but maybe I just neeed to try it again.

        2. I don't know the salad selection at the Fat Cat but the Four's has very good salads and a good cup of chowder.

            With all due respect, I would not discuss The Fours and The Fat Cat in the same in the same post. No comparison!

          2. As others have said, Fat Cat is great. Also try Alba, Alba Deli, Fuj1 1546 and Beni Cafe, Grumpy Whites, Tony's clam Shop and definitely Felafel King.

            And for a great spot that gets little notice: Cucina Mia. It's to the right of the Library (a good stop on its own) on Washington St--diagonally across from the PO. Great home made Italian dishes. Nice Sammies and Salads, soups, much more. If you need an ice cream after--and really, who doesn't?--Frozen Freddies is further down Wash on the right.

              Yeah, if you like middle eastern food, the Falafel King has excellent options and a good salad. Not tons of varieties, but a good basic that you can throw falafel, stuffed leaves, etc. on top.

                SeaSide, You brought up one of my little gems in Quincy. Cucina Mia also has great sandwiches and panini. If you call ahead for a take-out, they will time it so the food is ready just minutes before you get there. Love the place.
