Diner Reviews
  • "food is consistently good. service is outstanding."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "When the waitress came to our table she asked what we wanted, very limited menu. She did not mention any dinner specials, which we thought was strange. Then the party sat behind us their waiter told them right away what the specials were, I immediately checked with our waitress who answered their may be a few left, mind you dinner started at 4pm we were there at 4:15pm, which also does not seem correct as their was only 1 table left. I told her I would like to change my order for one the specials and she answered that she would see if any left and returned say they changed my order. The food was very bland the ceasar salad came without dressing and I asked for some it had no taste, dinner was the same nothing to brag about."

  • "I dined at The Ship on Saturday night with my husband and friends. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The menu has a nice variety of choices and I found the wine list to be extensive. I would highly recommend The Ship to anyone who is interested in good food and a pleasant dining experience."

  • "I have been driving past "the ship" for a long time and never stopped, just figured it was an "old school early bird special" type of place. Not so. It was tastefully decorated in a nautical theme (not over done) and the wait staff/reception was very friendly and may have "got the message" from some earlier posts! Lunch menu was more limited than I had hoped but still a decent selection. My kids who are very picky loved it, my wife and I ordered pasta, both were very tasty, fresh and well prepared. After looking at the expanded dinner menu I would not hesitate to go back for dinner. So overall we were pleasantly surprised and recommend the Ship to anyone sailing by (sorry couldnt resist)"

  • "I have been to The Ship a few times for lunch since they have re-opened and it has always been good. Went early on Valentine's Day evening and although the food and service were both excellent, we did not like the way the diners were spread out. The main dining room was not full when we arrived and still were seated in a back room with only 2 other couples. I guess they were trying to spread people out, but I would have much preferred to sit in the main dining area. Maybe they should seat there first and then use back area only when necessary. Not sure if this arrangement had something to do with the number of reservations they had, but it was kind of lonely! I will go back but will request different seating."

  • "We made reservations for 5 and waited just over a half-hour to be seated. We were disappointed with the host table. Had the restaurant staff been apologetic, or offered to find us a place at the bar while we waited for our table, it may have helped set the night off on the right foot. Our server was very sweet and tried her very best, but the staff seemed "in the weeds" and stressed. We waited awhile to get our drinks from the bar. When the manager brought over the drinks from the bar and my father said something, she had no reaction and walked away. It was weird. We thought we were in for an uneventful night. Surprisingly, the food came out very quickly and everyone was incredibly pleased with the meal and dessert was wonderful."

  • "My boyfriend and I had a voucher for The Ship and decided a Wednesday night seemed like a fair night to try out the place. We made a reservation for 7:15, assuming it would be busy. When we arrived, there was only one table with people, the bar was empty, but the hostess said it's much busier on the weekends. The waiter who brought our water & bread was not very friendly, a bit rude actually. Our waiter, Nick, was great though. Very pleasant, very attentive. I had the capellini and my boyfriend had the pork tenderloin, which he said was overcooked. Overall the service was good and so wasn't the food. The next time we try it out, we'd like to give the bar a shot."

  • "Pleasantly surprised Friday night by the food and the service at The Ship in Lynnfield. Nine of us for a birthday celebration. We all got something different and everyone enjoyed their entree. The salads were crisp and fresh and they offered a variety of dressings including a light lemon vinegarette that was different and delicious. Seafood, ribs, pork tenderloin, pork chop, chicken piccata, and warm crusty dinner rolls. All good. Give them a try. A little pricey for the casual atmosphere, but we would definitely go back! (Under new ownership.)"

  • "Pleasantly surprised by the caliber of the food, but the staff truly needs some serious training on time management skills and learning how to be a team player. Understand that sometimes things happen in the kitchen, but when there are 20 minute delays between ordering drinks and food and receiving them (and then having them both be wrong), asking for the check and taking forever to bring it, etc., there does come a point where not EVERYTHING is the fault of the kitchen and some is the fault of the wait staff. That is the reason why we won't be back, which is a shame because the food was surprisingly good."

  • "I've passed by this restaurant countless times in the past 4 years since moving to the North Shore but this is our first time checking it out. Oh what I've been missing! Service was timely and friendly. Food was really tasty and HUGE portions, including their alcoholic drinks. The music was perfect... totally helped to set the mood. We'll definitely be back to this hidden gem on the North Shore."

  • "A friend and I decided at the last minute to go out to dinner. Through Open Table we found a table at The Ship. They had a four course special that evening that was delicious! I'm looking forward to going to The Ship again."
