All the years my wife and I have visited Dube's, we have yet to find a place that can compare. We do see a lot of people we know at times. The inside was redone awhile back. Neat & clean. Try it, U may love it.

Boston girl living in California - Dube's is a MUST GO every time I come back. They have the best seafood and waitstaff! And I was thrilled to find out that I could get my "fried seafood fix" gluten-free! Still a favorite hometown kind of experience.

Great spot, cheap drinks, great lunch specials. Not fancy, but friendly staff, good food, large portions. A real Gem of the North Shore.

As a long time customer when we crave seafood, this is the place we go. A rather old establishment, this restaurant serves up the best seafood platter on the North Shore. Very good prices as well.

First off – the service was great. Our waitress was happy and on the ball. The atmosphere was good too – it felt like a locals place. It certainly felt casual, and comfortable. The food? I was not impressed at all. It was all fried food. Tasteless fried food too. I had the clams – which were like any other... More

It may be in an odd location, away from the sea and on a residential through-road but Dube's is definitely worth seeking out. I had the seafood chowder which was rich, creamy and full of flavour. My partner had a mix of fried clams, shrimp, and fish, served with their homemade coleslaw. We finished of the meal with a couple... More

I have been going to Dube's for decades and I always get the same thing, the boneless fried chicken dinner. The chicken is tender and juicy and comes with french fries and onion rings. The meal is more than enough to feed my teenage daughter and myself, with leftovers. The fisherman's platter is also delicious. My sons love that. It... More

If you are in the area and want to experience the famous fried clams, oysters, scallops etc but without the long hot lines, outdoor picnic seating and lack of cocktails, this should be on your itinerary. Ok, from the outside it does kind of look like a dive. But remember, dive-y places are "in" again! The interior is small, but... More
