I ordered a variety of things for myself and my wife. All were ok. I liked the RI clam chowder and the shrimp. My wife had a fish dish and is was good as well. The service was slow though.

Well prepared baked haddock dinner. Meals are served hot with homemade chips and delicious dip brought to your table as soon as you are seated. The restaurant is extremely clean, waitresses are friendly and efficient. Reservations are not needed but are helpful on special occasions....More

The food and service are great at Balch's. While the major focus is on fresh fish, a wide assortment of other meal choices is available. Everything is well prepared and presented in an appetizing manner. The staff are attentive and pleasant.
