After reading reviews about this restaurant on a number of websites that ranged from 1 Star to 5 Stars, my husband Michael and I had no idea what to expect. But on a stormy Tuesday evening we decided to give the Roxborough Seafood House a try anyway since the restaurant is within walking distance of our house and they finally began taking credit cards. We really like seafood so we were really excited when this place opened, hoping there might finally be a decent place in the neighborhood for fish. We walked there at 5 pm (happy hour) and we are happy to say that our experience at was excellent. We entered in the bar area and were greeted immediately by Mike the bartender, who let us know we could sit anywhere we wanted. We chose a booth in the bar area and our waitress Sabrina immediately came over with the martini menu (so many varieties at less than $5 each at happy hour). Michael ordered a "Super Storm" which was enough to fill the martini glass twice and was delicious as well. I order Sam Adams Summer Ale on draft, which was fresh, cold, and only $3.75 per pint. We started with an "Anthony Salad" to share (which was only $5), and the kitchen split it for us. The salad included lettuce, onions, olives, garbanzo beans or chickpeas, and gorgonzola cheese with a delicious red wine vinegarette and was served with a complementary basket of bread. For our main course we each ordered one of the specials of the day: I had sauted tilapia with sun dried tomatoes and olives with a side of roasted red bliss potatoes and Michael had the seafood medley, which was mussels, clams, and shrimp served over penne pasta in a butter garlic sauce. The seafood was fresh and delicious and the entrees were only $9 each! Sabrina was attentive throughout our meal and Mike was friendly as well as knowledgeable about the food, the drinks, the bar, the neighborhood's history, etc. All in all, it was an enjoyable evening and the meal was one of the best we've had in some time, especially considering the price! I highly recommend the Roxborough Seafood House! We will definitely be back!

The place is quaint. The menu is not the best especially to be a seafood restaurant. they don't serve scallops lobster tails, steak, or cooked veggies. All in all, the drinks are good and the staff are nice. Would love to see more variety on the menu.
