They have the best fried shrimp and whole belly claims (per my wife). We are originally from Maine and enjoyed the fresh seafood up there, which is hard to duplicate in Florida, but Boston's Fish House is the next best thing.

We have been going to New Smyrna Beach for 10 years. Boston's was recommended our first time in town and we have been going back every time since then. We have never been disappointed! The fried shrimp and onion rings are the best around, the service is great, and the prices are fair. Boston's has become our "two timer" when... More

I have had several friends and neighbors recommend this restaurant over the last couple of years. My wife and I finally got around to trying it. We were both disappointed with the food, it was edible but nothing special and it was not inexpensive. I didn't like their set-up either. First you order your food at the counter and then... More

We were looking for good, fresh seafood in the New Smyrna Beach area. We tried the fish tacos, but they were bland and had no flavor. We do not recommend this restaurant.

This is a great place if you're looking for New England seafood. One of the few places in Florida where you can get full bellied clams and not just the strips that most southern restaurants around here serve. We had the fried captain's plate which had clams, scallops, haddock & shrimp & onion rings - a generous plate and adequate... More

My entire family and I have been patronizing this restaurant since it opened ! Always had excellent food and service until the original owners sold . Wait staff had been there for many years, now the wait staff has changed every time we've gone there . They always state their seafood is flown in DAILY, but when questioned as to... More

ok …the cons are , you come and order your food and pay for the food ( like a fast food place) then you sit and wait for it , there's no view of the water , it can be loud and crowded. When we went there , there were people standing and waiting and it wasn't clear who had... More

what are you looking for? Florida seafood or New England fish? This restaurant does not fit with the atmosphere of most local seafood places, nor does the food. We are looking for fresh seafood--not frozen. We noticed that fried was the better of what was offered. Great service, but no Florida atmosphere...... So, What are you looking for?

This has been one of the best restaurants I have eaten at. Great food, friendly staff, and reasonable price. I will come back to eat here any time.
