Top restaurant recommendations from locals

Restaurant
“This is a local institution for seafood of all kinds. The bar is a favorite waterhole for many local fishermen, and it often has live music. There's a no frills dining room, but the best part is the roof deck for drinks, music, and a more limited pub menu than in the main dining room. Haddad's is about a 5 minute walk from Heart Song Cottage. Take a right out of our front door, walk down to The Esplanade in Brant Rock Center, and you'll see Haddad's on the right, after the strip of stores and the laundromat.”

“If you make a stop over in Snug Harbor, Duxbury to stroll around the waterfront and marina, do NOT miss French Memories for the amazing pastries (my favorite is their almond croissant, but don't forget to grab a baguette to make sammies for the beach-yum). ”

“This is a cool beach bar that has good food and drinks and live entertainment. The locals hang here a lot. Just be aware that on weekends after 9pm they have live bands and it gets loud so if you are looking for a quiet place don't go when the bands are playing. The Jetty is about a 5 minute walk from Heart Song Cottage. Take a right out of our front door, walk down to The Esplanade in Brant Rock Center, and you'll see The Jetty on the left, about halfway down the Esplanade.”

Bar
“This is a local watering hole that is famous for its Greek style pizza. There is keeno in the bar and lots of TVs for sports fans. They have an extensive menu with everything from dinners to submarine sandwiches. It can get loud with all the people, music and TVs, but it's a fun place to hang. At night they often have DJs or live music. The Venus is about a 5 minute walk from Heart Song Cottage. Take a right out of our front door, toward Brant Rock Center. Walk down to The Esplanade in Brant Rock Center, and you'll see The Venus on the right, after the strip of stores and the laundromat, and before the Hop restaurant.”

“Excellent lobster rolls and fried seafood. Take away with limited number of picnic tables for outdoor dining. A bit on the expensive side. Food cooked to order so there is often a wait.”
