We had very high expectations, but our experience was only okay. The young ladies behind the counter moved like they were unconcerned about how long customers wait. And we stood there without being recognized, for an unusually long time. Once we ordered, we moved to the picnic benches. Our food was ready in about 15 minutes. I found the crab... More

We stop by Belle Isle for much of our seafood shopping, just to get it to bring home. But we also love stopping in for dinner or lunch. It's new location has a fantastic view of Boston Harbor and the Boston Skyline, and their dinners are great. But even after years of living nearby, I am still blown away by... More

We finally made it to Belle Isle this trip home to Boston... I have to say I am kicking myself for not going sooner... It has to be the Best sea food in the Boston area!!! Clam's were awesome and the clam chowder was simply amazing!!!! I can not wait to get back in town and hit this jewel again.

We would recommend the seafood here. The atmosphere is a warehouse with picnic tables, so we ate there once and took take out another evening. The place looked new.The french fries were very average

Clam chowder to die for. An excellent lobster roll. Went to legal seafood the night before this was 100 times better. Who wants swanky when you can eat seafood like this!

If you want fancy this is not the place to go. If you want excellent seafood without paying extra for the frills this is the place. There is literally no ambience. You go to the counter and order off the board on the wall. They give you a really cute flasher in the shape of a lobster to let you... More

We went this evening as the sunset. It was spectacular. We ordered the lobster roll, chowder and shrimp cocktail. The food was delicious. The lobster roll... More

You have to order over the counter, and they don't do a great job explaining what is included with your meal. My daughter got the scallops, and she was very disappointed with the amount of food she got. My husband, son, and I got the haddock plate, which was a very good portion. There are two different menus on the... More
