Small local restaurant with amazing food. Really good fish chowder. The portions are huge. We ate lunch and got there before the crowd. Would definitely go back.

Good portions. Not cheap, but prices are reasonable for what you get. Everything was fresh and well cooked. Nothing pretentious about this place, no fancy decor. Seems like a place where locals come for seafood.

Don't know.. lobster is always "Market Priced". Call The Causeway at 978-281-5256 before you go and ask the price.
