Sorry Boston, this place is crap. I'm a Flatlander and I like my seafood. Got several suggestions and No Name came up several times. Get there and Nobody seems to be my waiter. No One seems to be in charge. I saw a menu on line but No Menu seems to be the same, just a printed sheet. Very much... More

If ever there was a 'has been' this is it. Set in an old fish warehouse 30 years ago this was attractive because of its location. the fish was landed right at the doorstep, inevitably finding it way into the kitchen where it was simply cooked and served in quantity. the fishing docks have long gone and with it any...

Great, no none sense, good fish restaurant. Buzzing with locals and tourists. We got talking to a Bostonian on the plane and she recommended we eat here because of their renowned fish chowder - not made with cream, made with milk. It was good....no reservations.

We ate lunch here Labor Day weekend hoping for really fresh fish as it is right on the water. Boy did we ever pick wrong. The chowder came with a layer of grease floating on top, barely warm. The French fries were soggy and undercooked. The fish was not good either. Lobster roll was good going down but didn't sit... More

I had low expectations prior to entering this restaurant, and was hoping to be pleasantly suprised. However, I was immediately disappointed when they put down the stale garlic-ish, bread. My fiancé ordered the chowder, it was very watery. I, after adjusting my plan based on the surroundings, ordered a a burger to avoid food poisoning.... It was served on a... More

This place has a long history, and a lot of character. However I found the service poor (communication was limited by both language and frequency of interaction), and the food was not worth the premium that the restaurant charged. We had a variety of foods (not lobster), including fried fish and shrimp, and they seemed like typical of fast-food out-of-the-freezer... More

We took a cab to this restaurant as we were staying near Quincey Market. It is a very basic restaurant that you cannot make reservations but no worries as they move people through very quickly. It is not the type of place you would linger over dinner. In saying that the food is delicious. We weren't crazy about what they... More

Fantastic! Massive dish portions, with nearly instantly served chowder in working man's accommodations reminiscent of a by-gone era. Upstairs is nicer than downstairs, but nice is relative. This is a time forgotten gruel hall on a pier, hidden by a veneer of over-charging theme waterfront joints that offer more of the same at twice the prices. You'll be better off... More
