Food is rather common, based on the prices. I have been there on numerous occasions. I cannot think of a signature entrée that anyone has to return for, except the lobster roll, which is well presented and tasty.
I had the chicken salad on our last trip and it was boring and non-descript with something they called poppy seed dressing which was not that good. They loaded it with greens and not a lot of flavor. Some of the group had fish n chips which they said was very good. The parmesan crisps are excellent. We will return because it has the most amazing views of the marsh. Make sure in the summertime to go for a late lunch or early or late supper. It is mobbed and they have valet parking because it has little parking and you might end up parking on the street.

This is the definition of a restaurant with a view. If you want to dine and enjoy some of Cape Cod's more picturesque marsh views it is worth giving this place a try.

We recently came here for a late fall lunch. The restaurant in and of itself is gorgeous both inside and out and very clean. Our server was very kind and attentive without being overbearing. One of our lunch guests is a local who frequents often and one of the waitresses (who was not waiting on us) went out of her way to say hello to our friend and to ask how her meal and experience was in addition to giving her a huge hug. Everyone was incredibly nice here!

The lunch menu is pretty expansive, affordable, and is competitively priced with nearby seafood restaurants. I had the Cape Cod Reuben. The fish was lightly fried, fresh, and very flavorful. The coleslaw was well seasoned with pepper and celery salt without being overly slathered in mayo. The other guests in our party had a roast beef special and were also very happy with the seasoning and quality of their sandwiches.

It's been awhile since I returned to the Marshside (probably a decade from when it was a little breakfast shanty), but I am certainly intrigued about what this breathtaking establishment has to offer. I will be back!

While shopping on the cape, we stopped off for lunch.
The service was excellent.
Business during the late lunch hour was a steady pace.
We all had sandwiches and were very pleased with the presentation, taste and portion size.
The fries that came with the sandwiches were crispy and seasoned well.
We even had to try their “Jordan Marsh” blueberry muffin, I have to say it was yummy, it just needed a little more of a sugar crusted topping.
We were able to sit by the window which had great views of the marsh.
We will definitely come back.

Marsh side just like it says. Fresh off the boat seafood. Scallops very tasty, so were the oysters. Super wait staff. Come early for best seats with views. You will love the menu.

The panoramic view is great at any seat in the restaurant. The beautiful colors of daylight on the marsh or the marsh at sunset is spectacular. This is an upscale setting with valet on the weekends. The menu has delicious choices from local fresh seafood to meat/poultry and salad choices at reasonable cost. The long bar area is spacious and adds a touch of elegance. Off-season at this Cape restaurant is not as busy but weekends there may be a wait year round. Favorite dishes are the Marinated Swordfish tips and Turkey. Too many other items to name that are favorites. Not to diminish this wonderful setting and menu-One area which could improve a tad is making sure all wait staff have a good consistent sense of timing regarding meal delivery between courses (50% of the visits, we note it feels like a race to the finish with courses layered on our table within minutes of each other).
