When the parking lot is full on a rainy/snowy day, you know you've stopped at the right place. My husband had a scallop roll with fries and I had a clam roll with fries. Excellent! The waitress told us that the chef changes the oil every day and doesn't just filter the oil. Makes a huge difference! The decor was... More

The fried clams were the best I've ever eaten, bar none. Light and crunchy, sublime! Very good haddock chowder, lousy margarita

Petey's is worth a meal or ten! There's nothing fancy here - paper plates and plastic utensils - but don't be put off by it. The food is delicious. The chowders are excellent, both clam and seafood. The lobster roll is packed and served on a kaiser roll, so it's a little larger than those on hot dog rolls. Excellent... More

Came on a Wednesday afternoon in late December...still crowded. After a 20 minute wait, we were seated. Even though they were understaffed that day, service didn't suffer. Our waiter worked his tail off for every table. Ordered mussels as an appetizer...they were delicious, perfectly cooked and flavorful. The clam chowder was wonderful as well. I ordered the twin 1.25lb soft... More

It spoiled our experience having to divide up the bill plus tax, and then found we couldn't put the tip on there, had to start all over again. This is a new era of finance!!!! The food and waitress were as good as ever!!! But 3 Seniors resent having to use our calculators!!!

Located right along the coast road in Rye, this is an old fashioned seafood joint serving up tasty fresh seafood that can be washed down with a couple beers.

I live in Virginia and vacation in wonderful Rye, NH every year since 2002. Petey's Summertime Seafood is simply outstanding. The food is exceptional as is the draft beer selections they serve up. There is nothing better than spending a day at the beach and taking in a good meal at Petey's after a day of relaxation. The baked, broiled... More

Friend brought us here for a late lunch. What a treat, she had the lobster with steamers, I had fried clam strips and my wife had the lobster roll. All were super fresh, good quantity and great value. Wait staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Wonderful place for fish of all types. Looks like it would be kind of... More
