LOVE the new changes coming soon!

I must admit that after coming in to the Bostons Fish House that I have always loved, finding a different menu was a little of a shock. It was a slow lunch and we noticed the new manager walking around, against my husbands wishes, I motioned for her to come over. After explaining to her how we were... read more

Have been going to Boston's for over 10 years. Always good value and excellent food. They have now changed almost everything that use to be good. Onion rings are no longer what they use to be, now larger with same type of coating but not nearly as good as they use to be. Shrimp is now served on a metal... More

Been going to Boston's since we moved to the area in 2006 and was always a delight with awesome seafood and generous portions. Well how embarrassed last week when we took 2 friends there for their first visit after raving about the place. To our shock and disappointment it has totally changed. For lunch you no longer get 2 sides... More

We had not been to the fish house for awhile and like to go now and then. It had not changed, and the staff was friendly. Food is always very good and enjoy the way things are served. This is one of our favorites in NSB and glad it hasn't changed as some others have.

Stumbled in after a day on the beach. This place is only a block away right across from the Best Western. Certainly isn't a fancy place but the portions were large and the seafood was fresh and tasty. My husband and I shared a seafood platter and still had some food leftover for the next day. Will be back next... More

We stumbled into this resteraunt one night and wished it was the first place we went during our vacation. Food was great and service was also great. We had the blacken fish taco with a sweet salsa and it was the best fish taco I ever had. We went back the next night to order the same thing. Coleslaw was... More

This was the worst visit I have ever had at the Boston Fish House! I should have known something was suspicious when I walked in the door on a Friday night with NO WAIT! I have been dining at this location for years and have enjoyed the food immensely. The lines used to be literally 'out-the-door' it was such a... More

They have new owners and decided to make changes. I never gone to a restaurant that served the same food for lunch and dinner, that you could not order from the dinner menu. They no longer offer two sides with lunch unless you pay extra. Not happy with the results, and walked out. So many years of going there, and... More

But it was at best average food, mostly fried. That probably wouldn't bother much of over-fed America but for us---not our cup of tea.

I could have called this review so many different things. I thought of "iced tea in a coffee mug" which is essentially what you get now although the mug is shaped like a small mason jar with a handle. Refills don't come easy. I also considered "change isn't for the better", "cost cutting", "the old Boston's will be missed" and... More
