Markey's in Seabrook, N.H., Focuses on Lobster Quality and Value

We have found that at Markey's Lobster Pool in Seabrook, N.H, there's no need to "shell" out a lot of money on lobster.

This no-frills, order-at-the-counter restaurant with lobster tanks and indoor picnic-like benches inside and out tends to focus on the food and value rather than the hype. Last summer, we ordered a delicious steamed lobsters for under $10 a pound and a lobster roll for about the same price! Of course, the market value varies by day and food prices (and just about everything else) are more expensive this year, but you get the picture: this is a lobster shack for the budget-minded.



Of course, the steamed lobster is a highlight, but Markey's also serves various fried, broiled, steamed and baked fish entrees and appropriate seafood shack sides like corn on the cob, french, fries, onion rings and cole slaw. They also make great fish and clam chowders, as well as a good lobster bisque. For you raw bar fans, Markey's also serves up oysters and cherrystone clams.

Popular with beach goers for lunch and dinner, Markey's is a "come as you are" (within reason and proper decorum) establishment. We prefer eating out on the deck where the marsh and water views are pleasant, but the indoor dining rooms are just fine, too -- clean, comfortable and unpretentious. Most popular with New England residents and travelers from Memorial Day to Labor Day Weekend, Markey's is actually open year-round for those that need their lobster fix in the dead of winter!

Time-tested dining spots usually indicate high quality food, and Markey's is no exception: they have been in business since 1971and has become a household name for those living near or at the Southern New Hampshire seacoast. Markey's has also become a household name for us vacationers, too, as we've yet to find a consistently good lobster restaurant with such relatively cheap prices on lobster.

Markey's Lobster Pool is located 2.5 miles off Route 95 on Route 286 in Seabrook, N.H. Tel.  (603) 474-2851
