I arrived at Newick’s Lobster House just after opening time. I was greeted promptly. I was seated along the windows facing the bay beside the lobster shack on the short fisherman’s pier. My waitress came along for my beverage order within two minutes. She returned with it a minute later. I decide on the Fried Haddock & Fried Fantail Shrimp... More

I have been a frequent customer of newicks since the 1980s when my husband and I were students at UNH. We went to dinner tonight and the seafood chowder was horrible​ . The classic thin buttery broth with tons of seafood has been replaced by a thick pasty chowder tasting of flour lacking the shrimp, scallops and fish my family... More

If you love seafood you must try Newick's. They definitely have the best fries seafood I have ever eaten. Fresh, large portions and never greasy. The location is a little out of the way but it is located right on the water with a New England feel.

Like most people, I tend to review only places we discover while traveling, which is why I never thought to write a review of Newick's, even though we've been going there for almost 44 years -- since before the original place burned down -- and have eaten there more frequently than at any other restaurant. Newick's is a typical red-checkered-tablecloth,... More

My husband and I have been frequenting Newicks for many years. We ate there this evening and were disappointed. They have reduced their menu items. They no longer offer onion nuggets or dinner rolls. They only offer haddock nuggets before 4pm. I ordered onion rings and they were tasteless (not sweet at all!) and slightly over fried. My lemon pepper... More

Had a light dinner with my college freshman recently. Newick's is an old standby for beachgoers. We went real basic. I will say that I would stick to the original clam chowder and forego the "thick" version. My son had an more than generous lobster roll and I went with their clam roll. Both err served on big round buns... More

Excellent view of the bay, stunning sunset. Was there with a party of 14. We were the 1st to order, last, very last, i mean some were almost done, last to get served. Almost before we were swerved waitress did bring bread sticks. Fried foods are good, my wife had the lemon pepper haddock. Had this fake looking yellow color... More

You can't say that you visited Dover and not have eaten at Newick's. This casual seafood restaurant is a gem of the Seacoast and legendary for its delicious food and casual family atmosphere. Every seat has an amazing view! The wait staff is friendly and courteous.

Maybe there are better seafood places in New England. Maybe there are cheaper places. And maybe there are better views. But, frankly, Newick's is hard to beat for the whole lobster shack experience. I dunno - check out the photos to see if it is the kind of place you would want to go to, but it seems real, unpretentious,... More

Not busy this time of year which is good. Fish(haddock and shrimp) was excellent. If you want fresh seafood in a relax casual atmosphere this is it. Service always good and plenty of parking. Again, not fancy dining but great seafood.
