Hingham Things to Do
World's End is managed by the Trustees of Reservations, an organization here in Massachusetts which manages natural and historical parks. This is the 4th of their places I've visited, the others being Crane Beach, Castle Hill, and Halibut Point Reservation, all up on the North Shore. This location offered great walks, places for picnics, views of the water, on-site parking, and was pretty quiet the day I went. I definitely recommend a visit if you're a local, looking to expand on the places you've visited, or looking for a fun day hike.Related to:

Derby Street is like an outdoor mall. There are lots of great stores like J. Crew, Banana Republic, Yankee Candles, J. Jill, Barnes & Noble just to mention a few. There are also restaurants and other eateries all set up along a series of strip malls surrounding a parking lot.
If I'd had more time and money this could've been a very dangerous place....Related to:

Brewed Awakenings is THE place to meet over coffee in Hingham. It's right in the town center and always packed with people of all ages getting together and talking about plans for the day. They have a nice variety of coffee. Worls End is my favorite belnd.

It may be called a tavern but it's more upscale than your average one. Set in a beautifully preserved Colonial house, it's really a beautiful restaurant with a more casual bar area and lovely outdoor patio. We ate outdoors and although it's on a major road, the high fence and shrubbery block any view of passing cars.
The service was great and the food was delicious and served promptly. I really liked this restaurant!
Favorite Dish: Fondue was ordered for the table and after a basket with an interesting variety of bread was delivered, it was served bubbling hot in a small cast iron pan. I tried only one piece of bread but it was well worth it. If you love cheese you'll be in heaven with this dish!
I ordered the salmon which was served with a field green salad and asparagus with fresh raspberries and goat cheese and perfectly prepared.
The temptation was huge but we did resist dessert. But I feel pretty sure in saying that it would have been as fabulous as the rest of the dinner!

Excellent food, excellent environment, excellent service, but the prices don't seem to match (sarcastic). Do you know that saying "You get what you pay for"? Well, at this place, you can select from a handful of Salads and Sandwiches, and there are 15 Entrees to choose from, too! But the most expensive Entree is the $32 Filet Mignon, followed by the $28 NY Strip. All of the other entrees are less than $26. Reasonable prices. The service was very attentive. If you have Renatta, then you won't be unsatisfied.
The sides are sold separately and they are all $4. You can choose french fries, broccoli, herbed rice, seasonal veggies, baked potato (after 4pm) or mashed potatoes (after 5pm).
They have Soups & Appetizers - 7 to choose from, ranging from $6-13.
They do have a Children's Menu ($5-7) and Dessert Menu ($6-8), both have 5 items to choose from.
They are open: Monday - Thursday 11:30 am - 10 pm. Friday - Saturday 11:30 am - 11 pm, Sunday 11:30 am - 9 pm.
Favorite Dish: I ordered the Grilled Stuffed Zucchini for $7 and that was very good, and at 3" in diameter, it could be enough for 2 to try.
Then I had the Ribeye, which was tender & excellent. I ordered the horseradish mashed potatoes and that was very good, too. The waitress stated that the owners buy their meats directly from the market, so they are as fresh as possible. T
The restaurant lighting was dimmed and they have cloth napkins. The silverware had a nice solid feel, and their water-glasses were made of real glass.
This is a very upscale place, but the prices seem better than most.Related to:

open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Stars is very popular. It is always packed but the wait is usually not very long. My favorite meal there is breakfast.
Favorite Dish: they have an Italian omellet with real sausage and covered in marinara sauce and provolone cheese. mmmmm
