    Location, location, location. Surfside has a great location and amazing views of the yacht club and Plymouth Harbor. The drink menu is great but would like to see some more local craft brews on tap (2nd Wind, Untold, Widowmaker, etc) The smoked meats were good as well as the sides. Good assortment of appetizers and entree options. We will definitely return. Don’t forget to use Open Table for reservations as it can get busy on nice days.

    We arrived on time and the table we requested along the rail adjacent to the marina dock was waiting for us. Page, our server, was very attentive. We started with an excellent, complex tasting clam chowder. My wife had the fish and chips and I had the pork quesadilla, both of which were also excellent.

    My husband I wanted to have a oven view dining experience, hadn’t been to Plymouth in many years. We made a reservation for 5:30, but arrived early, sat on the chairs waiting for our reservation no problem. At 5:15 we decided we’d check in with the hostess to see if maybe we could just be seated, was told it’ll be closer to 5:30 when we can seat you. That was fine however we saw several people (2people) walk up and be seated right away. Seems odd that it’s now 5:15, 5:20, 5:25 and they have a table ready (didn’t see those times as choices when making my reservation). When we got seated/called at 5:30 the hostesses made an odd remark “told you it would be 5:30”. We ordered fried clams as an appetizer. It came with 10 nickel sized clams for $22 (that’s $2.20 for a nickel sized clam- highway robbery) super small portion size. Overall great tasting food but small portions. Staff had no personality and made odd rude comments. Was fine waiting until our reservation time however it seemed odd that’s all. I’d still go back for the ocean view but I’d be cautious about ordering (maybe ask, “how any clams should I expect to get. A basket or 10 small clams?” )

    I was so excited to try this restaurant and we went on a beautiful summer day. We tried to valet park since it was such a busy day in Plymouth, and we were told that the valet parking was just for the marina on this specific day. I wouldn't have minded, but sign entering the lot specifically said that parking was for the restaurant and marina. So, that was unfortunate. The restaurant was very casual, filled with families, which showed us it was very popular. We ended up ordering a "selfie" and a smokehouse burger both which were amazing. The selfie meat combo was delicious but the meat was just lukewarm, which was disappointing, but the rest of the food was good with large portions. Our server was very attentive and chatty which we liked. The food does take a while as we sat for about 40 minutes before eating. The only drawback was the price of the drinks. I was surprised to see simple drinks for $15 each and low-grade wine for $11 and $12 a glass. But that seems to be the norm now since the pandemic. Not sure if we would go back, but I'm glad we tried it!

    Pro: Beautiful space for restaurant! Service was better than average. Appetizers: crab cake was great Cons: music was so loud it was difficult to hear the person across the table from me. Appetizers: spicy sausage and pineapple was basically Eckridge sausage with fresh pineapple. Not worth the $. My sandwich and onion rings were over-cooked but was cold when it was served. My spouse’s sandwich had sparsely spread pork on her Cubano served with cold fries. Needless to say, we won’t be returning.

    We went for a special friends lunch get together and had a wonderful time. The food was delicious and the service was great as well. The only disappointing part of our day was there was no outside dining here unless you sit at a bar high counter around the outside deck. This however would not stop us from dining there again.

    Upstairs, indoor dining only and no ac, very loud and hot. Bottom deck was not open. Filthy carpeting on entrance stairs. 3 out of our party of 4 had BBQ, the pulled pork was fatty, and the ribs were not the " meat falls off the bone" type - very dry. The sides were skimpy, no fries that Saturday night only tater tots. Best thing was the cole slaw. Had eaten there prepandemic, will not return.

    I will share we are frequent visitors to Surfside Smokehouse whenever we visit Plymouth, but this time we felt let down during a visit for brunch. Great clam chowder!! The smoked brisket hash with eggs on the menu caught our attention, and was ordered by both of us. Unfortunately, we both were shorted one egg, and the "hash" should have called home fries, as the ratio of meat to potatoes was so bad you had to pick thru the small tater cubes to find the brisket. Disappointing from a restaurant we really like. Our waiter voiced frustration with the kitchen staff not being concerned with a customer's issues or taking some responsibility, which also was a little bit concerning. We'll surely be back to SS, to have some good 'que and seafood, and take in their waterside vibe, but not for brunch.

    We enjoyed every second of our dining experience at Surfside Smokehouse. We dined with our two kiddos (2 and 5 years old) - which is always unpredictable and this place certainly catered to our needs and made it fun! Our server, Alex, was awesome! The food was fantastic and the sauces were great. The view was beautiful and if we are ever in the area again we will be back!

    Service was great food was terrible. Memphis ribs were overcooked and dry in and out. Burnt ends were 6 chunks of fat for 23 dollars. We ordered triple chocolate mousse for dessert and the waitress came out and asked us if we ordered chocolate cake we said no. The owner came out and asked why returned our order and we told her we didn’t order cake. She said the waitress used the wrong word. Easily forgivable no problem but not the owner attitude.
