We ate at No Name on the recommendation of our Tour Guide. The meals are large - I had the shrimps, Richard had grilled sole, both of which came with coleslaw and fries. The place was busy, warm (it was freezing outside), the service friendly and efficient, the prices reasonable. The Samuel Adams summer lager was very pleasant too.

We stopped in after taking the Harpoon Brewery tour just up the street and absolutely loved our meal at No Name. The service was excellent. Our waiter, Nicholas, was a joy to get to know. I got the broiled scrod. With cole slaw, green beans and bread, it was a great meal. Husband got the broiled flounder with cole slaw... More

Two of us ate here last night for dinner. It wasn't crowded so we were able to find a table looking out at the water. This place has been here for 97 years and owned by the same family. The service was a little slow but it was fine as we were not in a hurry. I ordered the Large... More

I went here because of recommendations from locals. It's right around the corner from that big name Boston Seafood place. The No Names Seafood is no frills, but if you want excellent seafood this is your place. The service was friendly, quick and the wait staff had a great attitude. The good is where it's at. I loved the seafood... More

I ate at No Name for lunch. We got a great seat with a view of the water (though a large tractor trailer truck blocked most of our view, the restaurant of course has no control over that and it was still a gorgeous view!). I got the cheeseburger and my friend got the fried shrimp. Both were great! I... More

No Name doesn't pull any punches. The food is great. Highly recommend the fish chowda is loaded w/ fish. If you are nearby it is worth the stop.

We got the steamed lobster specials. Fresh. No frills. Chowder was nice - could've used a pinch of salt. We'd go back.

Took 12 employees to lunch, everyone loved the fresh fish prepared as ordered in no time at all. Servings were generous and the waiter was so accomodating. The dining is casual with continual interaction with host and waiter. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

It was an ok experience, not worth driving out of your way for. Portions were plentiful, but the fried fish was a bit too fried not sure what it is fried in, a bit heavy tasting. Granted you are not going there for healthy eating, but not sure what all the rave is about. Don't think I would bother going... More

For thirty years I have made this a stop while visiting friends near by. Please bring your favorite growler or bottle of wine to have fresh seafood along with your drinks,
