I've been going to Markey's for years. Love the quick service and the fact that they have an overflow parking lot. You can even order a beer while you wait for your order. My go to dish is the scallop plate.

Markeys seafood is always great! The Lobster Bisque is full of lobster meat, although the broth was bland, so I just ate all the lobster meat which was a lot! The fried clams are always delicious as are the scallops and haddock. Nice to go...More

Kind of an odd title I know, but with as many reviews as I have shared, this is appropriate. Markey's is a local favorite, directly across a marsh road from another local favorite. We tried Markey's for the first time for lunch on a recent...More

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

This is a classic clam shack - fried seafood in a rustic building. It’s right on the water with a great view. My lobster roll was generously stuffed with a perfectly toasted bun, but more mayonnaise-y than I prefer. The onion rings were delicious and...More

We were in the area for the first time back in July and a friend told us we had to go to Markey’s for lunch, so we did. We ordered a variety of fried foods, but none of it was that great, unfortunately. The portions...More

Worst ever. Overpriced seafood. Fried Calamari bland and tasteless, scallops greasy, coleslaw nothing more than watery cabbage, chowder - again no flavor and watery, and way too much mayonnaise in lobster roll. Hot and humid afternoon, no fans, no a/c, stifling. Counter service (food and...More
