The Fieldston Restaurant in Marshfield Has Closed

A cozy South Shore restaurant that resided in a former boathouse has shut down.

According to a Facebook post from owner Jan Perrin, The Fieldston Restaurant has closed its doors, as Perrin has decided to retire after running the Ocean Street spot for nearly 30 years. In the note, Perrin says that "It has been a GREAT RIDE. We've crossed the finish. The Fieldston is retired. Thank you Friends and Patrons for riding the rollercoaster with us!" While earlier posts from her indicate that the restaurant has been up for sale, it isn't known what might become of the space at this point in time.

The Fieldston featured classic American fare, seafood, and regional items while also being known in part for its fireplaces and rustic atmosphere.

The address for The Fieldston was 882 Ocean Street (Route 139), Marshfield, MA, 02050.
