Are you looking for a quaint little spot just minutes from a winter ride to the beach? Nestled in the village of Westport, MA. Marguerite’s Restaurant is a perfect one stop shop whether traveling with your roomies, family or your boyfriend/girlfriend.

Located at 778 Main Road Westport, MA. Marguerite’s is an all American type dining setting. They are open Monday through Thursday from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 7:00 a.m. till 8:30 p.m. Just do not try going there on Sunday, as they are closed.

Stop by for breakfast, lunch or dinner and enjoy a wide variety menu that is sure to satisfy just about any pallet. Whether you are craving a burger with goat cheese or one of their wraps this place is perfect for the foodie in you.

Sit by the bar or get a little table this little nook is quiet and quaint for any occasion. Start off with an appetizer and pick from fan favorites such as the Maryland crab cakes, fried calamari, stuffed quahogs, soups and more.

Whether you are in for lunch or dinner the burgers are juicy and mouthwatering.

The goat cheese burger is a bite of heaven, think thick juicy burger with creamy goat cheese and may I suggest adding sautéed onions and mushrooms for a perfect little twist?!

Lets not forget to mention the french fries, they beat all your local competitors. They are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside and make for a great side dish for any of their sandwiches, burgers or even salad, if you are trying to stay on the healthier side.

Not feeling a burger and something a bit more fancy, the Seafood Provencal is a must try.

It’s a bite that is packed with flavor featuring shrimp, scallops and mussels bathed in a white wine garlic sauce with diced tomatoes and cavatappi pasta.

The chicken parmesan has a taste of the comfort food of home, that non commuters miss. It is topped with just enough of marinara sauce, with penne pasta and melted mozzarella cheese. 

There are also vegetarian options such as their Garden Burger, which is served with sautéed onions, roasted red peppers and cheddar cheese melted and served on a kaiser roll.

Coming with someone who has a sweet tooth you must try their chocolate seduction cake which is noted as being “A rich flourless cake topped with raspberry coulisse and fresh whipped cream.” Maybe you are into something fruity too? They have you covered, with their apple crisp topped with vanilla ice cream!

When looking at their /Facebook/ reviews you can tell that the public loves this little spot seeing that they average 4.5-5 stars. Call ahead to see what’s on their specials menu because you never know what other dishes Marguerite’s might be whipping up next. Also, if you are traveling on the go Marguerites also offers quick and easy takeout services.

Make sure you give yourself some time to check out the little boutique located in the same plaza, called “Beautiful Things.” They do not call in Beautiful Things for nothing as the store owner features cute little coastal treasures that everyone will love. The scenery around the town is also a great little drive to see all the picturesque landscapes there are that paint this town with all its little gems. So why not make an afternoon in Westport?
