Weatherdeck, 168 Main St., +1 508-432-8240. Food handling is unsafe. Workers wiped down tables, handled garbage and returned to serve food w/out use of gloves or washing. When I complained to the daughter of the manager working, she didn't care nor offered any resolution given they just touched my food. In addition workers touched their face, hair and dirty trays (which were NOT washed before reusing). This place serves cold seafood and it will get someone sick if not corrected. I certainly do not plan to eat there again nor do I plan to vacation in a State that has such lax food safety rules.
