Going going there for years. Not sure if we were there on their last day of their season. If it was they should have closed before that. The fried food was over cooked with the appearance like the grease needed to be changed. Our fried...More

Been stopping at Markey's for many years. Lobsters and chowder always a treat. Place was almost empty the week after Labor Day. This time it seemed staffed by young people more interest in flirting with each other than serving customers. Kids sitting on counters, etc....More

We stopped in Markey's on a recommendation from friends and we were not disappointed. My wife had the lobster roll, delicious and very reasonably priced, I had the fish sandwich, great taste and very moist. This restaurant is very casual, picnic tables, self serve condiments,...More

Our son & family were out from Huntington Beach, CA. Well, they would want clams & lobster for sure. We hadn't been to Markey's in 10 years and forgot why. So said, let's take them there as it was greenhead season locally. Didn't want our...More

Markey's Lobster Pool in Seabrook NH was a stop for a group of friends while we were camping at Nearby Salisbury State Campground in MA. The restaurant has a rivalry between Brown's across the street. Although it seemed a little confusing with 3 cash registers...More
