Court House Seafood Restaurant
The Court House Seafood Restaurant in East Cambridge opened about
six years ago, a few doors down the street from the 84-year-old Court House
Seafood Market. Both establishments are run by the same family -- three
brothers who, true to their Portuguese ancestry, really know the ins and outs
of fresh seafood. Meals are ordered at the counter and cooked to your liking.
Make sure to taste the homemade fish cakes 'n' chips ($3.50) -- three savory
patties, made from a mixture of cod, potatoes, eggs, and special ingredients,
fried and served with lots of tender fries. (Individual fish cakes are 75 cents
each or $8.50 a dozen.) The rest of the menu is just as full of bargains: a
generous portion of baby fried shrimp with fries and onion rings is $4.95, and
a hefty cup of creamy fish chowder ($1.50) is chock full of fish and potatoes.
Daily specials, most priced under $8.95, are listed on a board. If you don't
want seafood, chicken dinners (plain, teriyaki, or fried) are available for
$5.95. Meals can be eaten at the small, casual site or taken away.
The Court House Seafood Restaurant, located at 498 Cambridge Street, in
East Cambridge, is open on Monday from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Tuesday through
Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and on Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
