Amazing!

I have been going here for 20+ years. The shrimp or lump crabmeat salad are amazing. The clam chowder is better than anything I have had in Boston, MA. The soup of the day should be titled Soup of the Year. The grilled Monte Cristo should be outlawed, great food, simple atmosphere, great service.

It’s been 5 years since I lunched here, and last week was reminded why. A friend’s suggesting we meet there for convenience took me there. The décor is hard floors and institutional tables and chairs. You stand in line to place your order, which a-priori takes “Excellent” off the list. Order, pay and find a table. Asking for a receipt... More

I had clam chowder, chicken & sausage jambalaya! The clam chowder was the best I have ever had! The staff is very nice and attentive. I REALLY recommend!

This little cafe' is only open during the week and only for lunch - but if you can get past all of the downtown workers and grab a chair you are in for a treat! The owner is amazingly friendly and ready to chat Jazz music whenever you come in and place your order at the counter, the waitresses are... More

This is a simple lunch counter that consistently serves the highest quality sandwiches and salads. From bank tellers to power lunches, it is a classic. Try the apple pie!

This is where the locals go for lunch. Not open for supper or on weekends. Menu never changes but is comprehensive enough that you can eat there everyday (and many do). Try to go first week of the month when they have bread pudding; it is simply the best ever!

The Calm Chowder soup and Shrimp Salad sandwich out of this world good!! Calm C soup best I've ever had and I've been to Maine, nothing beats this Calm Chowder. Easy to get in & out but busiest from 11:30-1:00. Just GEAUX!!

Jacquelyn's is a nice local lunch spot near downtown. They have homemade soups and sandwiches. Great for a quick lunch and back to work. Nothing special about the place itself, just good food.

Jackie's Clam chowder at this place is the best you will have anywhere in the world. Period. Entire menu is worthy of a try as everything is top notch so just close your eyes and point and it will be good. Either come early or arrive late because anything near the lunch hour is crazy busy and loud. The owners... More
