We were greeted by the friendly staff when we arrived and were fortunate to have a seat by the window. It's a peaceful view of the harbor and sail boats. So far so good. I ordered the parmesan crusted scallops. They tasted like they had been previously prepared and frozen from a package. The mixed vegetables were over cooked and... More

Wrote a review about eight years ago praising this small restaurant. It's still all true. Most patrons seem to be locals who like the great clam chowder, halibut fish and chips, crab cakes, Pacific NW specialties, and some other menu items that have a little Caribbean touch. If you are looking for fast food, a noisy sports bar with big... More

My wife and I have been eating at MarketPlace Grille for at least 10 years. Sure there are other seafood restaurants in the area, but none as enjoyable as MarketPlace. I can tell you how good it is but that would take the enjoyment away from your visit. You will only miss out if you do not stop. Claims are... More

Love the Marketplace Grille.You may have to wait a bit for a table but it is worth it. Not expensive, and service is always Great! The salads are fantastic, Crab cakes amazing and the Jerk pork WOW! I love seafood and eat a lot of it but I have to disagree with the positive reviews regarding the clams and oysters.... More

Ended up walking into the MarketPlace for my business lunch meeting because Anthony's was closed. The menu may be simple and the space smallish, but the food was fresh and tasty. The waitstaff were friendly and the area was clean. I enjoyed the Pasta Vegetable Salad.

I wish I could give different stars for different portions of this visit. Our host, the owner was so personable. She remembered all of our names. So knowledgeable about the menu. The food was outstanding. Would give them 5 stars for the food. However, this place really needs a coat of paint and some updating. We started with coconut shrimp.... More

The Marketplace Grille is a small restaurant next door to Anthony's Restaurant, but try the Marketplace Grille first! You'll be kindly greeted by Carline, a native of Trinidad, Tobago, and her lovely accent and smile. There is even a small tapestry from the area hung up to greet you. The restaurant is small, but what a beautiful view of harbor... More

We booked a table at MarketPlace Grille in order to have a view of the water, but were seated at a back table where the walls were painted a shockingly ghastly mustard color with no view. The servers were very nice and friendly, but the food was just so-so. It looked so nice on the webpage, so it was a... More

Beautiful view friendly service and awesome food. My husband has had clam chowder all over the east coast and Maine and said this was better than all. My fish and chips were over the top excellent.
