Kelly's Landing: Your best bet for Lobster and clam chowder.
This Weymouth landmark may be a bit "rustic", but they serve some of the best and least expensive lobster you will find anywhere. There is nothing fancy going here, but their food is good home cooking. The place looks like your typical seafood shack, with rough wood paneled walls and various nautical decorations. It's another one of those places that hasn't been redecorated in ages, which is something of a theme in Weymouth. The waitresses are as ancient as the ocean. Although the place is rustic, it's all part of the atmosphere.
Favorite Dish: Lobster is a great value here and thier chowder has won many awards. I also love their steaktips and ribs, and fish n' chips. They have great comfort food here as well, such as mac n'cheese, fishcakes and other daily specials. My only complaint is that their veggie sides tend to be a but mushy.

The Union Brew House: 99 bottles of beer on the wall
The Union Brew House is a small, friendly sports bar with a great beer list. You can be immortalized with a your own plaque on the wall if you drink each of 99 varieties of beers, both draft and bottles, which are listed on your personal punch card! I like going here to meet friends and have some apps and try different beers. The food is pretty good pub fare, and they make a good burger.
In fair weather, there is outdoor seating. Parking can be tight during pro games.
Favorite Dish: In Addition to the good burgers, I thought the bruschetta was nice and the steak salad was pretty ridiculous, in a good way.

The Venetian: The stuff of legend
The Venetian has been serving excellent Italian food in Weymouth since 1932. The waitresses seem to have been around since then (and even then they were old) but the food is fabulous. About 15 years ago the owner was found shot in the parking lot. Italian Restarant + Owner whacked...you do the math
The restaurant is still here and definitely worth a night out.
Favorite Dish: Chicken Parm is out of this World
Denley's (Denley Gardens): "Old World Pizza"
Denley's is on a street you would never think to drive down in a building you would never think to go into, yet it may be the best pizza place in Weymouth. From the outside it looks like a dive bar, but it is far from it. It's actually a friendly place that serves good food and they have a really good beer list. It looks like it hasn't been redecorated since it open in the 1940's, but this is part of the cool atmoshpere. What is really neat is the small bar which is only about ten feet long and features no stools or any place to sit (to discourage barflies, I suppose).
Bring cash, because they don't take credit cards
Favorite Dish: I usually go for the cheese pizza, but they have a range of topping and gourmet pies. The mozzarella and prosciutto pizza is very good. My favorite beer they have is the Samuel Smith's.

El Sarape: Excellent Mexican
El Sarape is not only my favorite Mexican restaurant on the South Shore, but it is also one of my favorite restaurants of any type anywhere. I have never had a bad dish here and the service is always very good. It's a relaxed and vibrant atmosphere, especially on the weekends (and after a few margaritas!). On the weekend nights, they feature a Mexican singer/guitarist.
Their menu consists of traditional Mexican favorites, as well as many more creative entrees. I recommend exploring a bit and trying something different. I've even enjoyed the seafood dishes that I've tried there.
Located in Weymouth Landing (though technically in Braintree) the storefront and surrounding buildings may look a bit shabby, but don't let that stop you. This restaurant is great. The bar is also fun, and bright with natural light during the day, so it's a great stop for a margarita.
Favorite Dish: My favorite dish is the Puerco en Adobo, a spicy pork dish. Also very good is the Pollo a la Naranja, chicken in a zesty orange sauce. I've tried many of the menu items, and have never been disappointed.
For drinks, I usually go for the Cadillac Margarita(rocks and salt) or Negra Modelo.

The Venetian: Stay Away!
This is the worst Italian restaurant that I have ever eaten in, the food is awful, ambience, there is none.
Stay away from this dump!
If you want great Italian food, go to Campinellis in Braintree, that place rocks!
It's how Italian food should be!
Uncle Charlies: Breakfast All Day!!
This is the model for all hole in the wall restaurants. Absolutely no decore, but excellent, cheap food. At one point, my family went here every sunday for breakfast. The portions are large and the menu is huge. They also take risks as there are some unique combos here, especially omellets. They even serve lingucia!!
Favorite Dish: the steak tips and eggs are too good for me to pass up. I get it every time!
