Winsor House is one of those iconic places to eat. The old ambiance combined with cozy and great food, you cannot go wrong.

Went for Mother's Day. Kids had 1/2 lbs burgers. Cooked med rare perfectly. Crab cake was excellent. Lobster Bisque excellent. Scallops were browned on outside, nearly raw in the middle...perfect. Chicken and waffles very good. Moist chicken breast, crispy, rusty waffle and fresh fruit. All good. Great meal on great day.

The Winsor House Never disappoints us. We had a very enjoyable brunch. The French toast and Lobster roll were amazing.

Great experience at The Windsor House. Our server was so friendly - we made a 5:45 reservation and when we got there our waitress was nice enough to let us sit outside and enjoy our first drink on the patio by the fire pit. It was the perfect start to dinner. Once we sat down the service was equally as great - our server was friendly and attentive. Our food was great as was the atmosphere. I'd recommend it & will be back!

We planned an early dinner on Saturday and what I didn’t realize is that they have a dining room with fireplace if you are celebrating or want a little more romantic setting. We had two tables with kids near us, which wasn’t a problem, just loud. Our server was excellent & said if we make reservations on opentable again, mention it’s a special occasion & they will seat you in the other dining room. Just sharing this tip. The food & location was excellent!

We actually sent 2 of our meals back. They were way to salty. Another meal was on the cold-warm side....the waitress told us to be careful of the plate as it was hot. The plate wasn't even warm t the touch. Disappointed.

Great tavern style restaurant on the south shore; we started with shishito peppers and calamari, so good....fish and chips are awesome. My husband had the linguine with white clam sauce and loved it. The smell of the wood burning fireplace makes the room so cozy.

We had a 5:30 reservation on a Friday night and had the dining room to ourselves. Bar was quite crowded, however. We were happy with our meals and would recommend the place. We were celebrating an anniversary, so it was a lovely time.

Fantastic old New England location. Reminded me very much of Concord Colonial Inn.

Loud bar area that seems to attract locals, but we were there for dinner.

Beautiful Colonial dining room with multiple fire places. Service was excellent. I had the George’s Bank Scallops with Risotto; i practically licked my plate clean. Wife has the Steak frites, cooked perfectly.

Now the dessert. I’m not normally a dessert guy directly after dinner but the Caramel Budino was arguably the best dessert I’ve ever had. Melt in your mouth smooth, perfect balance of chocolate, caramel, and whipped cream. Come here to eat dinner just so you can have this. You will not be disappointed.

The food is generally very good and well prepared. We had the butternut squash and apple soup and the fish taco’s as appetizers. Both prepared very well and tasted good. As the main course I had the salmon and my spouse had a burger. You can not go wrong with either entree.
It seems that whenever they have a full house the kitchen has difficulty in preparing the food in a timely manner. Our servers were very friendly and apologetic. However, it is still frustrating and annoying that they can’t accommodate the increase numbers.

Had not been back to the Winsor for a while...for no particular reason, but decided to to with friends on this friday night. The experience was wonderful, from the drinks to the food, it was all delicious and served with a warm smile in a great cozy atmosphere...where you can actually hear yourself and have a pleasant conversation without yelling. We had delicious tuna poke and 2 had the short ribs that were tender and wonderful, the fish and chips was great...very healthy serving and scallops were done to perfection. We will be back..thanks for a wonderful night out.

I met my 90 year old aunt and my cousins for my birthday dinner on a late Sunday afternoon .
Dinner was wonderful!!
Our server, Brooke, was perfect and even laughed at our jokes!!
The Windsor has always been one of my favorites and my aunt was so happy to be in such a comfortable and
relaxing atmosphere.
We can't wait to return soon.

New Year’s Eve dinner with special friends. The food was so disappointing. 3 of 5 ordered steak special that was as tough as a shoe. My husband ordered the short ribs that had NO FLAVOR. My chicken was ok but my salad was gritty. Best parts of what was ordered were the mussels and the creme brûlée. Considering our total was over $400 would not recommend. So unfortunate as the service was spectacular as was the ambiance.

Coming from Charleston SC it was our first time visit. We took my parents who live locally and it was simply a fantastic experience. Our wait person Angel made the night just perfect. The food was fantastic, the old historic building was what we were looking for and the location was very easy to get to.
The band was starting right when we were leaving so we did not get to experience the music since we drove back to Boston.
We will be back and I am sure my parents being from Marshfield will be back very soon.
Many thanks
Scott

This was the best meal I’ve had out in a WHILE! Went with my mom for a nice dinner- and we were so impressed by the nice greeting we received by the hostess, quick seating and very accommodating to our requests. Our server, Brooke, was just phenomenal. We would go back just to see her! We got oysters, buratta salad, fish tacos and scallops. The scallops were perfect. Everything was delightful and we can’t wait to go back!

The wait staff were very friendly and it is a very cozy restaurant. Unfortunately, somewhere along the line our order got lost and we waited about 30 minutes before our waitress came back and (very apologetically) informed us it would be a while longer. On the plus side, the food was excellent when we got it and they did comp is two glasses of wine for the wait. Overall it was a good experience and we're would definitely go back.
