From the best to the worst

The No Name Restaurant had some of the best food for over 40 yrs. I went there for lunch in September 2014 and was shocked and disappointed. For years I would go there and enjoy incredible clam chowda and their seafood. This time the chowda was lukewarm and bland - no taste. I ordered the fried... read more

This is one of the first place we'd ever gone to when we moved to Boston. Our kids were little then which made it even more perfect. The setting is quite vintage Boston nautical. Right on the pier. Tables are old wooden picnic style. Service is minimal and average but with it's almost-cafeteria style, one doesn't expect much more so... More

On a snowy Saturday afternoon, my husband and I were in the area and decided to lunch at the No Name. On this day at 12:30 pm, it was not crowded and we were told to choose a table anywhere. We sat in the back room right at the window and were able to watch seals swimming in the water... More

This is a great hidden gem! While most go the places like Legal Seafood, this place is the real deal. The building looks like nothing that would house a great restaurant but looks can be deceiving! Great waitstaff, awesome food. Highly recommend!

They have the best lobster rolls ever! We go at least once a month. The seafood is always fresh and yummy! Waiters are friendly and helpful. You have to try it!

My husband, daughter and myself went to the No Name Restaurant for lunch yesterday. The seafood chowder is out of this world. The fried clams had no flavor at all. The lobster salad roll, which I only saw looked amazing and I was kicking myself for not getting it. My daughter had fresh lobster meat on a salad and the... More

I was staying at a hotel in the Seaport area and wanted to grab a quick bite after spending all day on my feet. Although the reviews weren't great, the location on the Fish Wharf and free parking made it very convenient to check out. This is not a fancy place - simple paper menu and paper napkins. There was...

It has been many years since I was here last and it did not disappoint. I had the scrod sandwich with a cup of seafood stew. My wife had the fried shrimp plate and my son had the stew as well as the lobster roll. The scrod was served piping hot, was very flavorful and was not greasy. The stew... More

Tried to go in the evening - closed early. Went the next day and ... the slight waft aroma upon entering is that familiar combination of ancient cooking grease congealed on the exhaust system and fish too long out of water. The place is old and has tradition - but the passion is long worn away and there needs a... More

We asked the locals where we could find good seafood for my fiance. They recommended this restaurant. It was very average. It was crowded and the service was not great. The food was very average as well. It was kind of a let-down because we only had a day to spend in Boston and I wish we would have gone... More
