Reviews of restaurants in Bourne
The Lobster Pot
Address: 3155 Cranberry Hwy, Bourne, Massachusetts
This is an authentic New England seafood shack restaurant that's indoors.
It's low key, with plastic spoons and modest interior. But that's ok because
what makes The Lobster Pot is the food, especially the clam chowder. The
clam chowder is made with fresh clams, not frozen. That's what makes it
what some are calling the best. They also make the chowder with real clam
juice from the clams, not from a bottle. If you want to have authentic
clam chowder that is prepared in small batches from fresh ingredients,
then head over to The Lobster Pot.
The rest of the menu consists of fresh high quality seafood that is fried,
broiled, or boiled (steamers), including lobster in the form of whole
lobster, lobster tails, lobster salad rolls. What's great about this place
is that you can have all your favorite East Coast fish shack favorites
indoors away from the elements in a family friendly location while knowing
that the food is fresh, local, and made in small delicious batches. Prices
are reasonable and portions are generous.
The Chart Room
Address: 1 Shipyard Lane, Bourne, MA
The Chart Room is a popular seafood shack-style restaurant with some seating
that overlooks the marina. It can get crowded, the food is decent etc.
Expect crowds and waiting in line to be seated. The draw here is the view.
What is it about restaurants and views? It seems fairly consistent that
the better the view the less better the food. I'm not saying the food
is bad, the food is decent. It's just that the food is overshadowed by
the view and the lovely location. Which isn't a bad thing if you want
to experience a lovely location, strong drinks, and a beautiful Cape Cod
sunset (and food).
Trowbridge Tavern and Canal Club
Address: 100 Trowbridge Road, Bourne, Massachusetts
I have eaten coast to coast and around the world at some of the finest
tables and have enjoyed street food from around the world. But I have
to say that there is a special spot in my heart for modest places like
the Trowbridge Tavern and Canal Club. Featuring patio dining as well as
indoors, check your pacemaker at the door and enjoy New England appetizer
favorites such as quesadillas, bacon potato skins, mozarella sticks, fried
macaroni and cheese balls, and everyone's favorite, chicken wings. Entrees
consist of sandwiches and burgers. They serve salad, too. This is an authentic
locals bar and restaurant attached to a motel that will appeal to those
those who appreciate authenticity. Enjoy it while it is still around.
