Four generations of wholesaling New England's finest seafood make Turner the most trusted name in quality seafood. In 1994, Turner's Seafood opened Turner's Seafood - Melrose, our vision of a classic New England seafood house. Complete with its fresh fish market, turn of the century oyster bar, and open kitchen, our Melrose seafood restaurant marries the family mission: "to serve you the freshest, best tasting seafood you have ever eaten" with the promise to remain authentically New England.

Food and service was fantastic. Shannon was great. Sat in the back in a booth was great out of the tight and noisy tables.

Toddler meal was generous and well received. Our meals were very good with large portions. Seafood very fresh as well as the salads and sides. Great place to eat with your family.

The food here was amazing ... everyone loved what they got. The steak and shrimp was amazing ... salmon was amazing ... and the bacon wrapped scallops were just incredible. Service was really good. Our server was wonderful and paid the perfect amount of attention to us. The only complaint I have is that I was told by the hostess that I had not made a reservation but I had made a "call ahead" and they would do their best to sit me within 20 minutes of the promised time. It's frustrating when you think you have a reservation and are expecting to sit down. I would have never made a "call ahead" at 7:15 on a Saturday ... obviously we waited 20 minutes because they were busy. Very frustrating.

They do not take reservations. You are put on a "waitlist" for the time you request. They may or may not get you seated at that time. We waited 30 minutes past our "reservation" time before we were seated. In the meantime, we stood in a very limited area in front of the drafty door and in the way of the wait staff going back and forth. However, once seated, the food came fast and was delicious. They gave us free dessert to compensate for our wait which we thought was a nice touch. Great atmosphere. Authentic fish market type of place that has a restaurant. A bit on the noisy side however. Would definitely repeat!
