Small restaurant with a big appeal! My husband and I came upon this while in town. Very accommodating when it comes to menu choices. My husband was undecided on what to eat. The server asked what are you hungry for. He replied fish, clams, and oysters. She said done. That combo wasn't on the menu, but they made it up.... More

If you're new to the area or are just in town for a few days, GO TO DUBE'S for some outstanding seafood. Granted, you can go to nearby Pickering Wharf restaurants for the fancy atmosphere but Dubes is the place to go for quality local cuisine! I had a clam roll in my last visit and the plate was overflowing... More

Honey wanted fried fish the other night so much said why don't we try Dubes? Well come to find out we have been missing out big time. Honey got... More

I love their blackened... More

All the years my wife and I have visited Dube's, we have yet to find a place that can compare. We do see a lot of people we know at times. The inside was redone awhile back. Neat & clean. Try it, U may love it.

Boston girl living in California - Dube's is a MUST GO every time I come back. They have the best seafood and waitstaff! And I was thrilled to find out that I could get my "fried seafood fix" gluten-free! Still a favorite hometown kind of experience.

Great spot, cheap drinks, great lunch specials. Not fancy, but friendly staff, good food, large portions. A real Gem of the North Shore.

As a long time customer when we crave seafood, this is the place we go. A rather old establishment, this restaurant serves up the best seafood platter on the North Shore. Very good prices as well.

First off – the service was great. Our waitress was happy and on the ball. The atmosphere was good too – it felt like a locals place. It certainly felt casual, and comfortable. The food? I was not impressed at all. It was all fried food. Tasteless fried food too. I had the clams – which were like any other... More
