We were in Milford visiting a friend who just had surgery and stopped at this restaurant and was truly amazed. The food was prepared just right. I usually don't have fried fish but this time I tried it and it was truly very good. Light breading and lots of it. I brought home a doggy bag and had it for the next night and so we had 2 dinners for the price of one. My husband had the oysters and said they were great as well. We each had a bowl of Clam Chowder, best chowder since we were up at Cape Cod. So please do not hestitate to stop and try it. It is worth a little ride to travel to this place!
My family & I love Balch's, been going there for yrs now. The food is excellent. and the clams are the best price around. If you live near or just passing through, I suggest you give it a try. Does not look like much from the outside, but inside good food & service awaits you.
Hats off to the chef (owner)

In Milford, I would place this restaurant as one of the best for very good quality food at a very reasonable price. We have never gotten a bad meal from them, service is very good. They are ALWAYS busy, so I guess a lot of folks agree with my opinion. Try them, the food is excellent (wait till you try their cheesy dip and chips) and your wallet won't groan when the dinner is done.
