Excellent fresh seafood. Great staff and ambiance. Even though it was a very busy evening, the service was perfect, the meal delicious. We ordered the halibut which was made beautifully. Even the fries: not greasy, sprinkle of parsley. Would highly recommend.

We went here based on a friends recommendation. I had 3 oysters which were very nice and the Lobster Roll (my first in Boston). My daughter had the Striped Bass with grilled asparagus, fava beens and almond gremolata. We were there for a 5pm dinner because we hadn't eaten lunch and were the only ones in there besides a man...

The food is good but was a little conflicted by the setting. I wouldn't call this a "classic" oyster bar by any stretch. The only part that was classic was the menu. This felt more like a diner and the prices didn't quite reflect that. I appreciated the open kitchen but for high $20/low $30 entrees, I don't want to... More

Late afternoon drop-in without reservation. No problem getting seat as only 2 other couples inside - but a bit of attitude by seating host. The busboy outside was far more inviting and encouraging. The counter waitress was business-like, but didn't extend herself very much on offering explanations. Oyster shucker needed hygiene lesson. A bit pricy ($3.20 per for South Bay,... More

I've been to B&G about a dozen times over the last two years. With the exception of one seemingly impatient server, my experiences have been consistently excellent. The oysters are dependably fresh and delicious. The wait staff is knowledgable. Everything on the menu from the snap pea salad to the smoked shrimp beignettes is delicious. This has become my choice... More

If I could give 6 or 7 stars I would. Just an outstanding well rounded meal. Started with the peach salad and it perfect as was the snap pea salad. Just get this to share it and you'll thank me. Your welcome! Oysters were a variety plate and all briny and fresh. Again just about heaven. I had the swordfish... More

We visited this restaurant in the beginning of July. They were very accommodating for the dietary restrictions of someone in our party. The food was cooked as we requested and was very good and fresh. There is outdoor seating available, but as it was a very hot and humid evening, we chose to sit inside. This was a mistake--there is... More

Came here for oysters, they were delicious, as were the fish mains. Pricey though. Friendly service, lots of walk-ins being turned away, so book.

We went there after two friends suggested the restaurant. We ate on the patio and had lobster rolls. Great food and friendly, attentive service.
