Somehow we missed the change in ownership and expansion of hours to include dinners Wed-Sat. We very much enjoyed our dinner consisting of innovative seafood dishes. A very nice wine selection with many French selections. The old house provides an intimate environment that is close to the harbor and train. We will definitely go back

This is an absolute gem of a place. The food is outstanding and the portion sizes on the appetizer are enormous. Bring an appetite (and a friend or two).

Pleasant setting.
We found that our waitstaff was not prepared for any questions on the menu.
The food was bland, there was no thought in the presentation of the meal.

Tried here for the first time Friday night. Food was very good. We has special wurst platter .All was excellent except red cabbage under done and definitely needed more flavor like the real German pickled hit cabbage. Service started a little slow but owner was checking to see if all was well. Will definitely go back

I went to Crane Beach with my 4 kids for the day and on the way back to Boston wanted to find a nice (not typical over-fried seafood shack) to have dinner. I saw the review of Allie’s and was intrigued by the nearly all 5 star review on Google. We were not disappointed, a great little restaurant with high quality food (we had the tasing menu), friendly staff and welcoming ambiance. Definitely worth the visit when you’re in the area.

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.

Took the family for a late supper and thoroughly enjoyed Allie’s French inspired menu. My braised lamb shanks were sublime and paired with a gorgeous Bordeaux at a fair price. Wife had the short ribs that were equally excellent. Even the kids loved their dinners. We live in town but this was our first dinner visit. It won’t be our last.
