STRIKE THREE ---- To start, change the plastic table cloths or keep them clean. Fried shrimp dinner for 16.95 for popcorn!!! Leave your cocktail sauce out long enough so its not an ice cube. Finally, your steamers were like I was eatting a rubber tire with butter made of water. Never again BALCH'S 70.00 YOU GOTTA BE KIDIN ME !!!!! I"ll go to LONG JOHN SILVER before I go back .

First of all to the person who said the food was "medioker" that's not a word. Which probably explains why you thought the food was mediocre. Balch's food is high quality, and they have one of the cleanest kitchens you can find in Milford. I have never been disappointed with their food or service. I HIGHLY recommend Balch's to anyone visiting Milford.

Food is ok. I had the Calamari for an appetizer, which was medioker at best. For my meal I had "Jumbo Lump Crab". There was very little crab and mostly made of bread crumbs. No jumbo lump of anything was found. The atmosphere was loud and uninviting. At the time there seemed to be a church group meeting and having a prayer session, which made the rest of the restaurant goers uneasy as to what they should be doing as the whole half of the place was praying.

I guess in the end it fits the Milford atmosphere. A great lead up and disappointing in the end.

The person who wrote about the Mercury has no idea what he's talking about... You can't write a bad review because of things you hear on the news. The food is safe,delicious, and very reasonably priced!!

Milford is a cute little weekend getaway in a lovely natural setting. I have eaten several times at Balch??s and the food looks good but who would have guessed seafood mercury is a killer! If there??s one thing I don??t like in my fish?its mercury.
I enjoy a little butter and lemon with my fish, but mercury?! I think not!
Just Say NO to Fish broiled or fried with high level of Mercury like tuna, bass, mackerel, tilapia and more. Here??s an entire website devoted to mercury and how the Bush Administration tried to push the dangers of mercury poisoning under the. Have you noticed how many fish joints have sprung up in the last few years?
In the city "New York" I live in, there must be at least a 4 dozen. The other day I was having a conversation with a friend??s wife who actually thought that fish were a health food.
Say what?
There??s enough mercury in high fructose corn syrup that nobody is paying any attention to. There??s good fish and bad fish as far as mercury is concerned. Not all fish is safe. Again this is a FDA problem that is not being solved very efficiently.
So, what else is new?

Good atmosphere, Great service though in the end that is about all this place has going for them. Had the fried clam dinner with onion rings. Food was warm-to semi cold at best, not piping hot like I expected. (no they were not busy at the time either) Clams were rubbery tasting and the cocktail sauce was awful. The waitress said it is made fresh there. Quite frankly I'd have preferred a store bought brand over what the restaurant prepares. However, they did not have that option.

I will also say that they were not skimpy on the portions, therefore, I might go back a 2nd time and try something else.

Balch's is a one of a kind family owned restaurant. Not only are they friendly, but they truly care about their customers and will do anything to accomadate any special needs or desires. The food is delicious... whoever said it was "ok" must not know what good food really is. I could tell everything was fresh and homemade. Serving sizes were huge and prices were very reasonable. A great place to dine with family and friends!

Down to earth facility, food is fairly good and reasonably priced. Service is OK. The menu is straightforward, and in all, not a bad choice when working with a budget.

For those who just want to order a quick meal, Balchs Fish Fry is a good place in Milford to go to. You order at the counter and can either takeout your food or sit at a table. It's nothing fancy but good seafood.

PROS: Quick
CONS: Not Fancy

When this place first opened, it had very nice and attentive staff and, since its the only seafood place around, the food wass good. Now, after having some success, they have replace some of the staff and the service is not as attantive and the food that is still good, costs more than it should.
