Worst meal in the city of Boston in my family's history of eating our way thru this beautiful location. Poor service. Filthy facility. Restaurant empty, yet wait staff inattentive, partaking of drinks from the bar. Sautéed seafood was boiled and a butter/wine sauce dumped over it. Served with frozen vegetable medley. Broiled seafood served five minutes after ordering. Broiled shrimp... More

I enjoyed the chowder packed with seafood and the steamed lobster. Wasn't expecting the coleslaw, corn and french fries that came with it. The restaurant is older and the smell of fish on the pier is quite strong, but I found that part of the overall experience.

The No Name restaurant was called one of Boston's best. However, the wait staff did not understand the meaning of food safety. On multiple occasions, they grabbed lemons with there bare hands and ate leftover french fries off of tables they were clearing. The seafood chowder is more of a fishy soup. Go to LTK instead if you want good... More

I remember going here as a child with my parents-everyone talked about how wonderful it was. Recently we happened to be in the city a number of nights in a row so I insisted we go here. Big mistake. Prices are just as high as you would pay at a nice restaurant, except the food here was awful. They offer... More

This is the second time we have visited this restaurant in 5 years and it felt and looked like it had not been cleaned once during that time frame. The food is good, but that is about all you can say for it. The floors are sticky, the tables are sticky, you can barely see out the dirty windows on... More

The No Name Restaurant is a no frills, back to the basics establishment. The restaurant is located above and active fishing dock. The food is certainly fresh from the sea. You sit up on the second floor and if you are lucky enough to get a window seat, the view is very nice. My son ordered the calamari plate and... More

The seafood chowdah is the best..don't pass it up. we had the broiled scallops and fried clams too and we were not disappointed. The whole belly clams were actually juicy! We will certainly go back.. The atmosphere is great too. You eat upstairs,overlooking the Boston harbor and fishing boats.

If you what to eat well in the Seaport district of Boston and don't want to wait or spend a small fortune, head to Fish Pier and No Name. It's where lots of locals eat - good seafood served with fries and coleslaw - wash it down with a glass of Sam Adams local lager. It's a jeans and t... More

I went with a large group to No Name. We found it because we all wanted to go out for seafood - something about spending all day around Boston Harbor. We asked the cab driver where he recommended. First he suggested someplace else, but when someone looked it up on their smart phone, they said "Too expensive." So the taxi... More
