Best of Boston

2005 Best Brunch, South

Arthur & Pat’s

This raucous Marshfield institution deals in big flavors and big personalities. Every Sunday, tout Brant Rock waits to sit inside the small, ramshackle beachside building and dig into gargantuan lobster-spinach omelets; piles of fluffy, fruit-strewn pancakes; and seemingly greaseless fried clams. The prices might make you blink, but eggs Benedict with real crab and made-from-scratch hollandaise doesn’t grow on trees, now does it?

239 Ocean St., Marshfield, 781-834-9755,
