Best restaurant for fried haddock and scallops. I wish I knew how they make the batter!! Now that they are open starting at 4:00pm, you can't go and grab a quick lunch. Still, the best comfort food around. I liked the sliced bread they used...to have, now they have rolls.More

We've enjoyed this place for awhile but our first time back we had too many issues that should have been handled better. Had to remake a drink, brought 2 salt shakers and waited to get pepoerinstead, couldnt get prime rib less than medium (at 5pm)....And my medium rare tips arrived Waldone. I sat with no food while my husband finished his entire meal. The bill was $67 for 2 meals and 2 drinks and all they offered was soup or salad. The manager could have handled it much better but didn't budge. We won't be back!More

This restaurant reminds me of being a kid, its somewhere anyone can help something they like as they have a little bit of everything. The staff is always more than helpful and the food is always fresh.

I read about Good Thymes restaurant in the Boston Globe. The restaurant reviewer said for his 30 th birthday he could have gone to any restaurant but he chose Good Thymes as he went their with his family as he was growing up. I had...to drive the hour to get there but it was worth the trip, especially for the nostalgia. It is a very 80's style restaurant. The staff is excellent. The food is comfort food. I had the turkey croquettes, twice. They were that good. After the meal the come by with a dessert cart. I haven't seem one of those in years. While I didn't have any, they looked delicious. I will go back again and maybe try something other than turkey croquettes.More

Am here for dinner on a Saturday evening. They were very crowded, but we were seated quicker than the 30 minute estimate. Once seated, the friendly waitstaff, told us the specials, and took drink orders. They have a full bar, offering beer, wine and cocktails...with top shelf brands. There were 4 of us, so we had a mix of specials and regular menu. All of the dishes were very tasty, and good portions. Everyone enjoyed their meal, and the casual environment. The prices were very reasonable. We would consider returning for another dinner when we are in the area.More

The food was excellence, we had baked haddock and it was done to perfection. The waitress was very attentive, making sure we were enjoying our dinner. I recommend this restaurant very highly.

Was taken here by friends who described it as a family restaurant. Hostess was very pleasant and we were seated almost immediately. Waitress appeared and drinks were promptly brought to table. Menu had a nice selection. I had shrimp scampi. It was a decent sized...portion and shrimp were flavored very well. Spaghetti accompanying it was bland. Another person had steak tips. Cooked properly but tough. Another person had haddock which they enjoyed. After delivering meals, waitress disappeared. Had a problem with drinks. She was nowhere to be seen. She finally showed up. Asked about drinks. She said there was a problem, but never came back with new drinks. Only thing she was prompt about was delivering the check. Restaurant went down in my opinion due to server.More
