Beverly Restaurants

  • Retro cafe

    We stopped at this spot after shopping at Casa de Moda because I needed a quick snack. The Atomic Cafe is right across the street and a really cute spot. I guess it's just refreshing to walk into someplace that's not part of a huge chain. It's just a nice, small town cafe where locals and tourists alike feel comfortable stopping by. I asked the man...

  • Ole!

    Acapulcos bills itself as a "Family Mexican Restaurant and Cantina". The restaurant itself is quite large (there are two halves to it, with an enormous entryway). As with most of today's Mexican restaurants, you are served complimentary chips and salsa with your meal. The restaurant is owned by a local Mexican family and appears to be run by the...

  • Roast Beef on every corner

    I'm not a native so perhaps I'm not capable of understanding the roast beef phenomenon on the north shore. You can find a roast beef "shack" on every corner and there is even a few chain restaurants in the area like Kelly's Roast Beef. Roast Beef sandwich.

Beverly Nightlife

  • The REAL deal on these night spots.

    Kitty O' Sheas:This place is a dump and it's the size of a shoebox. It's always packed with drunk college kids looking to get some ya-ya. Good luck getting served too. By the time you get your next beer, the place'll be closed.Crackers:This joint is even smaller than Kitty's but no less a dump. The food is terrible, and God help you if you go on...

  • For the higher class

    This place is on the up and up, I saw what appeared to be a Ferrari F-40 parked out front the other night. Get the picture. So long as your "decent" they wont care. But you might get a few stares if you leave your Gouchi and Armanis behind.

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

    The Boston Commuter Rail network is run by the same folks who run the "T". There are five train stops in Beverly: Beverly Depot, Montserrat, Pride's Crossing, Beverly Farms, and North Beverly, all on the Newburyport/Rockport line.

    Check out the web site for station locations and for schedules.

Beverly Shopping

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Casa de Moda is full of fun clothes, accessories, jewelry, novelty gifts, sunglasses, candles, greeting cards....you get the drift. Most of the stuff is really nice with not a lot of useless items, so there's plenty to look at. We spent a good amount of time in here - it's a good sized place - and we both bought things. I just got a fun seashell ring and some incense but Barbie boughts more, including a fabulous hot pink bag.

    And they don't even seem to mind when you put some of their "quirkier" items on and ask them to take your picture...

    Tacky tourists...

Beverly Warnings and Dangers

  • by justastraycat Written Feb 16, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're not a local, the areas you want to avoid are Bennett Street, Mill Street, Grant Street, Simon Street, and Gage Street. Also, the "designated" housing projects are located on Story Ave, Hilltop Drive (across from the college) and Courtney Drive. Everywhere else is pretty much OK.
