The people are great and the food is better. To be cheaper it would have to be free. Fish, Lobster, Clams all the best and great portions. I have brought out of town guest there and they were amazed.

Haven't been in years, first stop in New Bedford, Stuffed Quahaug, Kale Soup and Cacoilla Sandwich absolutely delicious and so reasonably priced. Talking with Gail one of the owners, she raved about her Lobsta Roll, couldn't decide where we were going for dinner so time to go back to Danny's for Lobsta Rolls, they were stuffed with Lobsta meat and...

This restaurant seems like a local neighborhood hangout for excellent eats. Nothing fancy at all, not near the tourists hangout or by the water. I found it while searching on Tripadvisor and glad I did. There were 10 of us and we ate like queens and kings.

I used to have a friend that worked there over 35 years ago, he's the one that told me when he served the little necks on the half shell he would just cut one in half and make it look like it was two. We'll I just ordered a dozen and guess what they still do that trick. People think... More

I eat at Danny's at less once a month. The prices can't be beat for seafood in New Bedford and that's saying something! The seafood is fresh and delicious. The have always been accommodating to substitutions and cooking preferences. When available I always order the raw littlenecks, which are $6 for 18. They have excellent clam boils, seafood chowder, lobster... More

This is a great neighborhood restaurant with the freshest seafood in the area. They serve basic breakfasts with specials But their lunch and dinners are scrumptious. They have different specials on their board daily. Their clamboils are great but their lobster rolls are the best. Their hand cut thin onion rings are to die for. Drinks are reasonable, and the...

If you enjoy your New England Seafood, then this place is must stop! Clam chowder is good, but try the Seafood Chowder~shrimp, scallops, fish, clams in a new england chowder based cream, skip the oyster crackers, they aren't needed for this very hardy dish. Clams Casino's good, fish and chips, yum yum and fries weren't too greasy. Enjoy

We've gone to Danny's for clam boils for years, and they are just great, but everything else is too!

The service was fine and the prices reasonable, but the food was less than mediocre. Given the number of reviews praising and criticizing the food, I have to guess that it is inconsistent. My meal was poor enough that I have no intention of returning to test my hypothesis!
