Looking for some new ones to haunt this weekend. Seriously conisdering Finz in Salem Ma.(never been), avoiding Hampton Beach area entirely (way too much traffic, and frankly not much up there worth driving to)

What's your fave spot?

      I take it that you're looking in the North Shore MA / Seacoast NH area?

        I guess I couldve been more specific..Im looking for anything within an hour or a bit more from NH..Ive been to the Black Cow with mixed feelings on the food there. Nothing is really out of the question, as the weekend is finally looking like good weather and have some company from out of the area

        Was thinking Chauncey Creek as another..but have never been.

          The Lobster Pool in Rockport has one of the best ocean views - & you can even watch them pull up the lobsters from their traps from their boats. Sunsets are especially beautiful, & it's BYOB.
