We've walked past Sally's a few times when wandering around Seaport Village but never dined there. We decided to splurge and it was well worth it. Grilled octopus was unbelievably tender. Battered rock shrimp had nice slight kick. Paella had decent sized lobster tail and good flavor. Grilled sea bass was fresh and served with spinach, wild mushrooms and linguine... More

The appetizers were good. We had garlic edamame and clam chowder. But then we had the seafood tower for two which I would not recommend. The lobster was ok but the oysters tasted 'off', the crab legs were tasteless, and the shrimps were nothing special. It all tasted not fresh. Beautiful place on a nice night but the food was...

After we arrived to the city we took a walk along the waterfront and landed at Sally's for lunch. Awesome spot to sit outside and enjoy the fabulous view. Excellent selection of beer on tap and the food was amazing. Prices were reasonable for the quality of food and the overall dining experience!

Sally's Fish House and Bar is in the Manchester Grand Hyatt, but it located right on the boardwalk of the marina. It has amazing and exceptional gourmet cuisine, and both indoor and on the boardwalk seating. The service is great, and the food is fabulous.

Located right on the waterfront with lots of outdoor tables, this is a great place to sit and people watch on a wonderful sunny day. Food is great too.

Had a delightful lunch on the patio watching the Red Bull Air Races. The service was excellent and the quality of the food very good. We were never rushed, encouraged to take our time to enjoy our lunch. Our waiter make great suggestions and his recommendations were spot on. I had a Cobb salad with shrimp and sea scallops. The...

The crab cakes were great, some of the best I've had. The problem is the price regarding the size. $16 for four bites. The fish tacos very good.

While staying along the boardwalk area, we tried one night to walk in for dinner. The place was mostly empty and we were told for a party of three it would be 30+ minutes. (Monday night around 7:30pm). We went somewhere else and made a last minute reservation for another night. We got there 15 min early, asked for outside... More

The check came along with a statement that a 3% surcharge was added to cover the state's requirement that even those who work in restaurants should make a living wage (my words, not the management's). This means that the prices on the menu are all inaccurate; I believe that's called "false advertising." For that reason alone, I would not eat... More
