Great summer spot to enjoy the nice cool New England summer nights having a fantastic and delicious meal and sipping some excellent wines. The fish and seafood are fresh and perfectly prepared. The greens and salads are light and delicious. Plan to visit next season 2017.

The restaurant is small with indoor and outdoor seating plus bar seating. The view of Lobster Cove is nice. The menu is limited which is okay given the variety and turns over frequently. There is a very good wine list which is a bit pricey. The apps we had were very good. We had the short ribs and butternut squash... More

My husband and I went to the Market Restaurant about a week ago. We have heard a lot of positive things about this restaurant over the years and decided that we would go before they close for the season in October; one has to book way ahead and after eating at the restaurant, we are wondering why. Perhaps it was... More

I heard this was a great restaurant from friends and it definitely lived up to the hype. It's right smack in the middle of a neighborhood and there's not a sign outside, but it was wonderful. I made my reservation a month ahead like I was told so don't forget you can't just call for a table at the last... More

Five friends and I enjoyed a positively delightful evening at Market. As it was a lovely evening, we sat on the deck and enjoyed the harbor view. More than the setting, however, we all loved our dinner choices. Scrumptious oysters on the half shell, lobster/clam/pasta dishes, and lamb chops were relished and devoured. Top drawer service by Sheila was performed... More

Food was good. Limited options of choices, but all were fresh and tasty. Service was attentive and not overly so. We sat at the bar and felt that we were taken good care of.

It's interesting to me that the reviews for Market are kind of mixed...because I just returned from the most fabulous meal! Yes, it's a rainy post-Labor Day Tuesday and the restaurant was active but not packed. Food, from starter to dessert, was fresh, delicious, nicely presented and well portioned. Service was professional and warm...although there was a slight delay in... More

Could not get a reservation as it was filled up but was told if we came at the opening time, we could grab 3 seats at the bar. Luckily, while others had the same idea, we managed to seat ourselves and even with a limited menu, the chef was able to suggest a dish for my low sodium regimen. The... More

Been wanting to visit and was in the area on a Monday. No reservations available but we were able to sit at bar. Great service very thoughtful. My 12 yo daughter didn't really like watermelon soda. The waitress noticed an offered another choice. Eggplant app was so fresh and amazing. We each ordered different entrees. Hubby said halibut was best... More

The menu is very limited, didn't remember that from our last visit. The food was just ok and not inexpensive. They only have beer and wine, although the wine list is quite extensive. Its crowded and you have to book ahead of time. The location and view are what make this a nice experience regardless of the food. We won't... More
