It was our first time - daddy daughter date - definitely coming back
Somehow we missed the change in ownership and expansion of hours to include dinners Wed-Sat. We very much enjoyed our dinner consisting of innovative seafood dishes. A very nice wine selection with many French selections. The old house provides an intimate environment that is close to the harbor and train. We will definitely go back
Lovely neighborhood restaurant that is a great place for quiet yummy dinner. Good value for the money.
Great service, interesting wines, excellent food, nice people!
This is an absolute gem of a place. The food is outstanding and the portion sizes on the appetizer are enormous. Bring an appetite (and a friend or two).
The three course tasting menu was superb. Each course was beautifully presented and delicious. Allie’s will be a regular stop on our restaurant circuit!!!
Lots of interesting choices on the menu. They have many options of wines by the glass - all tasty and good prices. The owners and the staff are super nice.
We found that our waitstaff was not prepared for any questions on the menu.
The food was bland, there was no thought in the presentation of the meal.
Excellent food and many choices on the menu. One of the best parts is the wide selection of wines by the glass at reasonable prices.
Lovely little bistro. Nice local food and good wine
Tried here for the first time Friday night. Food was very good. We has special wurst platter .All was excellent except red cabbage under done and definitely needed more flavor like the real German pickled hit cabbage. Service started a little slow but owner was checking to see if all was well. Will definitely go back
Recommended by our innkeeper at B&B. Loved the menu and quality of food. Returned next day for breakfast and it was delicious also. Don’t live in area but would highly recommend.
We had an outstanding meal at Allie's Beach Street Cafe!
All the courses were excellent with very interesting combinations of items to create
very interesting dishes.
The service was tremendous as well. Looking forward to a return visit.
I went to Crane Beach with my 4 kids for the day and on the way back to Boston wanted to find a nice (not typical over-fried seafood shack) to have dinner. I saw the review of Allie’s and was intrigued by the nearly all 5 star review on Google. We were not disappointed, a great little restaurant with high quality food (we had the tasing menu), friendly staff and welcoming ambiance. Definitely worth the visit when you’re in the area.
Delicious food. Seriously good food in a relatively casual setting. Friendly and helpful servers.
it was great food. I never give out 5 starts. 4 stars.
Found this place online and took a chance. Glad we did. Excellent food and service. Would go back to try breakfast or lunch.
Had a lovely meal with an attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable wait staff. Atmosphere was clean and uncluttered yet welcoming. Will be sure to return!
3rd time there, once again, very good, I had the Short Rib and my wife had the Salmon, both were excellent
Lovely! Great Service delicious food! The atmosphere is quaint and it's kept very clean.
When you walk in to Allie’s Beach Street Cafe, you will likely be greeted by a smile from behind the counter. The smile belongs to Allie, co-owner of Allie’s with Glenn, her husband. They bring warmth, hard work, and good food to Manchester-by-the-Sea every day. We have eaten there numerous times over the last 15 months. All three meals. One thing we look for in restaurants is consistency. Having tried an extensive menu for all the meals, consistency underlines the taste adventure that begins as you read the menu, presenting both familiar and French oriented not so familiar offerings. One particularly unique offering is the Friday/Saturday night tasting menu. A three course fine dining experience with wine pairings. The menu changes every week, at a surprisingly affordable cost.
Breakfast may be something familiar or something rarer like a croque madame (grilled ham and cheese with an egg and white sauce). Lunch may be a veggie wrap, a chicken bahn mi, or luscious cheeseburger. French twists and turns every where. The dinners are where Glenn shines with his fine dining and sommelier background.
Allie’s offers imaginative, well cooked food every day. It reflects the personalities of the owners, living out a dream. My wife and I hope you will enjoy it as much as we have.
Wow! Very good food, we went late, it was quiet, had a beef dish that was great, my daughter is a vegan and they had a few dishes she could choose from, overall very happy, will be going again, soon
Took the family for a late supper and thoroughly enjoyed Allie’s French inspired menu. My braised lamb shanks were sublime and paired with a gorgeous Bordeaux at a fair price. Wife had the short ribs that were equally excellent. Even the kids loved their dinners. We live in town but this was our first dinner visit. It won’t be our last.
Loved it! Great selections, excellent service and great food. Especially loved talking to the owner about various dishes and discovering new plates. Bravo. We will be back!
Quiet afternoon meal, looking forward to returning.
The menu was diverse with lots of options for creative eaters and not. Food was amazing.
Try the Caribbean bouillabaisse . Wine list was superbe! Well worth the drive!
have eaten dinner here twice and both times have been very pleased...The portions are quite large and could easily be shared...
Very tasty food. Excellent wines at very reasonable prices. The owner and our server were very helpful.
A great addition to dining on Cape Ann. Great menu and attentive service.
