"When you walk in to Allie’s Beach Street Cafe, you will likely be greeted by a smile from behind the counter. The smile belongs to Allie, co-owner of Allie’s with Glenn, her husband. They bring warmth, hard work, and good food to Manchester-by-the-Sea every day. We have eaten there numerous times over the last 15 months. All three meals. One thing we look for in restaurants is consistency. Having tried an extensive menu for all the meals, consistency underlines the taste adventure that begins as you read the menu, presenting both familiar and French oriented not so familiar offerings. One particularly unique offering is the Friday/Saturday night tasting menu. A three course fine dining experience with wine pairings. The menu changes every week, at a surprisingly affordable cost.
Breakfast may be something familiar or something rarer like a croque madame (grilled ham and cheese with an egg and white sauce). Lunch may be a veggie wrap, a chicken bahn mi, or luscious cheeseburger. French twists and turns every where. The dinners are where Glenn shines with his fine dining and sommelier background.
Allie’s offers imaginative, well cooked food every day. It reflects the personalities of the owners, living out a dream. My wife and I hope you will enjoy it as much as we have."See more
"This was the second time we've taken my mom here for a special occasion (Mother's Day, then her birthday), and both times were unparalleled in service and quality! I so appreciate that special requests like sitting near a window with a water view are always kept in mind and honored. It is usually very busy and can get a little loud in the dining area, but it's a great environment for a celebration. The seafood is always fresh and there are a lot of interesting dishes on the menu for foodies to choose from."See more
"Although the food was truly excellent, our seats (2nd table from the entryway) meant the aroma of chlorine from the pool area was ever-present. Couple that with the smell of diesel fuel & exhaust fumes and the overall experience was a negative one."See more
"The Cotuit Oysters were outstanding, the New York Strip was cooked to perfection, the Pomme Frites and Asparagus were great sides and our service was spot on! Finished off with sorbet and coffee....it couldn't have been a more perfect dinner!"See more
