The Cabin is a cozy local restaurant in Middleboro, Massachusetts. This restaurant is a great choice for those looking for a good meal served in a comfortable environment with friendly, personable service. We found out about this restaurant through family who have lived in the area for several years.
The Cabin has been a favorite of locals since the 1940's, and with the great menu, service, and ambiance, this is really does not come as a surprise. While quality seafood is what brings most in, The Cabin actually offers a nice diversity of menu options including stone oven pizzas, pastas, appetizers, sandwiches, and more. They offer an assortment of gluten-free fare for those avoiding wheat.
For our appetizer we went with the Cabin Combo, which was a plate of french fries, chicken tenders, mozzarella sticks, and potato skins. I normally try to stay away from fried foods, so this was a nice treat for me! We also tested out the Clam Chowder, which was delicious! The Fresh Haddock plate (which includes 2 sides) was fantastic as well. The real surprise here was a delicious Alfredo pizza topped with chicken, broccoli, and spinach.
They always have a number of fantastic specials on the lineup. On one occasion, we ordered the special of the day, a pesto pasta with shrimp. The serving was humongous - I had leftovers for 2 days! The pizza specials are always great as well. On one visit, we treated ourselves to the macaroni & cheese special - sounds a bit strange, but tastes spectacular.
This is now our favorite restaurant whenever we visit family in the Middleboro area. The food is great and the prices very reasonable. The cozy atmosphere and great service just make the meal even more memorable.
Our waitress was enthusiastic and personable, which was a nice change from restaurants in surrounding areas. Also, an older man who works there came out into the dining room and sang a song for everyone...so cute! The manager was walking around greeting all guests and ensuring that everyone enjoyed their meals. This is something that does not happen much anymore today, and thus, truly appreciated.
The dining room is very small, however, it has that cozy, woodsy type feeling. The decor is log cabin themed with a nice laid-back country vibe. I had the feeling of being in a rustic restaurant in an isolated town in New Hampshire or Vermont, which was a refreshing change from the hectic nature of downtown Boston.
I would definitely recommend dining at The Cabin for those who are visiting Plymouth County. If you are looking for a friendly, home-style restaurant experience with excellent seafood, you will find it at The Cabin.
