Treat yo self.
A year ago, my wife and I came back from Cancun and found ourselves withdrawing from travel addiction. Coming across this restaurant a week later definitely helped ease the pain. The atmosphere and food are relatively authentic and pretty damn good. Stiff margaritas and a plethora of delicious and decadent dishes will have you ready to bust out the maracas and sombreros in no time. …Ariba.

2. Not Your Average Joe's (Norwell)
Not Your Average Joe's is not your average chain restaurant, pun intended. They're always switching up the menu with new swanky dishes. The bread is super good to start, served generously alongside olive oil with parmesan cheese and crushed red pepper. The chicken enchiladas and the Caribbean buffalo tenders are my go-to. Throw in a pitcher of watermelon margaritas and it's a done deal. Other than a few locations in Massachusetts, you can find Not Your Average Joe's in Maryland, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Virginia.

3. 42° North
Top of the line seafood, nice dining room, and a welcoming bar. It's the perfect, relaxed spot for some semi-formal celebration or just a nice night out.

4. East Bay Grille
Also in Plymouth, East Bay Grille is a step up from 42° North on the fancy-scale. I'm not really sure if it's enforced, but there is a dress code. If you do decide to go there, it wouldn't hurt to check that first. The few times my wife and I have been there we were celebrating, so we were already addressed the part. Set on Plymouth's historic waterfront, it's a pleasant little scene. Plymouth Rock is right down the street (literally take a left out the parking lot and drive for two minutes), along with the rest of Plymouth Memorial State Park.

5. Lobster Hut
Feeling irie? Got the munchies? If you're not up for dressing to the nines but still want that beautiful Plymouth waterfront atmosphere, exit Easy Bay Grille immediately, walk like 50 yards southeast of the building and you'll end up at the Lobster Hut. This quaint little shack serves up super good fried seafood for a reasonable price and offers outdoor seating closer to the harbor than East Bay Grille. Just beware- don't feed the birds (we do anyway).

6. The Fours (Norwell)
Burger & Beer
My sister introduced me to this place last year. It's a sports bar on the higher-end. If you want to catch the game out over a few brews, or if just want a bomb burger, check this place out. Three locations- Norwell, Boston, and Quincy.

7. Cask 'N Flagon
The sister-site of the historic Fenway Pahhhk Cask 'N Flagon and located in Marshfield, I was at this restaurant for the majority of the 2013 World Series. And the place was BUMPIN' every game night. I've been to actual sporting events that couldn't match the liveliness of the restaurant. Literally. So if you're looking to hang with a rowdier crew than you would find at The Fours, if you want to scream your face off at 135 High Definition TVs and feel perfectly normal about it, then, my friend, this is the place for you. Try the BBQ tenders or a massive plate of nachos with copious amounts of cheese. You'll thank me later.
