Top Shelf Bar & Grill

Reviewed By kmmgem

Forgot about this restaurant until it popped up while reviewing another in the area. Had been here a few years ago and loved it. I had the pistachio chicken which was a special that night and it was absolutely delicious! So I checked out the menu online and we decided to go back. It is a hidden gem and not just a pub. Our server was Melissa and she was awesome...she was the only one serving and she was spot on! Kudos to her! Also kudos to the chef who has a flair for his creativity. I had the baked haddock with lobster sauce which was wonderful and a double side of veggies enough to have another meal at home. Hubby had fish and chips and he really enjoyed it! Tasty and not greasy! And he loved the cole slaw! Great meal,great service and that's what makes you want to go back!!!

This is a restaurant with a wide variety of choices. The pizza is one of the Best around and so are the sirloin tips. Good chowder and fish and chips. Friendly waitress staff and bartenders. The owner is very hospitable and always upbeat. You can’t go wrong there as it’s comfortable for families and couples or just to go for a drink.

Somewhat limited food menu, but makes up for it in its draft selection- a good variety of styles and breweries, something for every taste. The chili cheese fries were good. Good stop for quick bite or a few drinks when walking around.

Haven't been in years, first stop in New Bedford, Stuffed Quahaug, Kale Soup and Cacoilla Sandwich absolutely delicious and so reasonably priced. Talking with Gail one of the owners, she raved about her Lobsta Roll, couldn't decide where we were going for dinner so time to go back to Danny's for Lobsta Rolls, they were stuffed with Lobsta meat and very reasonably priced. This is a must stop if your anywhere close by.

Great views of the waterfront highlight an enjoyable experience at Waterfront Grill. Had fried scallops, baked stuffed shrimp and Sushi during our visit. All were of good quality and they certainly will have a returning customer in me. They also have outdoor seating in nice weather.

Knuckle Heads Bar & Grill

Reviewed By Msia52

On a recent Saturday night there wasn't too much of a wait but we decided to sit on the bar side. The tables are really small but we didn't want to wait. Service was friendly and it seems like this is a place a lot of locals visit. The prices were really reasonable and portion sizes large. I had a fish sandwich that was twice the size of the pop that it was on. A pop is a Portuguese roll. It was very fresh and came with a side of warm fries. It was a bargain for $6.99. My husband had swordfish and he said it was cooked to perfection. The atmosphere is average but with the food and prices, it's worth a visit.

Good portions, good food and good service. Ordered Alentejana. Pork, fried potato, red pepper and little necks. Flavorful and filling. Pork was super tender. Wife ordered baked scrod or haddock with veggies. She ate every bit said was perfect. Definitely worth visiting. Burgers and fish and chips looked killer.

New Bedford on a Saturday night now has a thriving downtown port side. Lots of bars,grills,food emporiums.A great stop from I195 between Providence RI and Cape Cod. Pleasant well lit bar and waited upon tables. Good seafood. Freshly prepared.Great stuffed quahog, little necks on pasta Portugal style and a small? Monsta Lobster-roll. Didn’t try any of the the many beers because of long drive ahead. Plan to be back as a rest stop to Airports. Etc in Rhode Island & Ct.

Rose Alley Ale House

Reviewed By synToronto

Location: Facing the waterfront, this place also has an outdoor patio on the side.Décor: Typical bar look with lots of wood and televisions. Not a lot of signage in the front to draw you in. It does not appear to be accessible either as guests need to climb some steps up from street level.Service: We found our server to be professional and helpful enough.Food: They have a good selection for wings and burgers. Some seafood items might also be a good choice such as the fish sandwich or fish tacos.Overall: If you are looking for solid pub fare, this seems to be a contender.

We popped in on a Saturday and luckily found seating at the bar around 6 pm. Met some wonderful locals touting the highlights of this wonderful city and restaurant. Highly recommend the hummus platter = bacon scallops (FRESHEST EVER) for a light dinner paired with Pulpit (IPA), Caprice (raspberry blonde ale) and Quick Eternity (west coast style IPA). Definitely plan on revisiting this quaint historic seaport town and Moby's in the near future.Thanks so much for stopping in and we're so glad you had a great time! Thanks for leaving a nice review! We hope to see you again, and there will be new beers for you to try next visit!Cheers!Michael WarrenGeneral Manager
