The ocean has long been a stage for humanity's grandest achievements, from Magellan’s circumnavigation of the globe to Columbus’s discovery that lobsters look like tiny monsters. Set sail for seafood with this Groupon.
$15 for $30 Worth of Sustainable Seafood
Clam chowder ($6) or lightly breaded scallops ($6) complement heartier fish tacos ($11 for three) or the Maine meal with one fish, two sides, and one house-made sauce ($13.50). Menu items may change since trout, blue cod, shrimp, and other seafood items are from suppliers who practice sustainable, habitat-friendly methods.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Tackle Box a spot on Groupon's Best of 2011 list.
The charm and simplicity of the Maine lobster shack is heaved ashore at Georgetown's Tackle Box, which popped onto Bon Appétit's radar as one of the Best Seafood Restaurants of 2008. Just inside the door on a pocked brick wall, a weathered Old Glory greets diners as they stand before the counter's chalkboard menu to check on the day's fresh catch and wonder if sailors wear their ties in a figure-eight knot. Since Tackle Box shoulders a steadfast commitment to sustainability, each meal can vary, as cooks fry or grill the bounty of fishermen's nets that may swell with haddock or catfish.
Diners can choose smoked trout to pair with hand-cut fries or mac 'n' cheese, all of which they can enjoy at a fire-red picnic table. For an extra kick, fingers may dip fare or put out a burning dynamite fuse in a classic tartar or spicy marinara sauce.
