B * G is Bountiful & Good

Went here a week ago and had a terrific time/food. Our server was a young woman named Hilary who was very helpful, pleasant and knowledgeable. We ordered a bottle of Prosecco which was quite good if a bit overpriced ($70). The mussels were well prepared as were the ricotta bombolone. My wife had... read more

If you are an oyster fan you should not miss this restaurant. So many selections of seasonal oysters!!! Fairly small/cozy restaurant. Menu is not too extensive outside, but more than adequate. Not a high-end restaurant but quite simply an oyster/seafood bar! Handful of appetizers, sandwiches, and entrees...

Great selection of oysters - Conway Royal and Copps Island. Seasonal dishes are wonderful. Lobster roll is overrated. Robert Sinsky rosé is excellent!!!

Great spot in a great location for the best and freshest Boston seafood. They have one of my favorite orders of fish and chips in the city. They could improve upon the beer list, but the wine list is notable for a small place. The bathroom is very difficult to access, down a tiny spiral staircase. Great outdoor seating area.

Our family group,had a wonderful meal here. We all agreed that the West Coast oysters were the best we'd ever had, and the variety of entrees we ordered were delicious. Our waitress was the most knowledgeable server I've ever encountered, not only about the food dishes but the wine list as well. The restaurant doesn't have a lot of seating... More

A lovely find in a nice eclectic and trendy was part of Boston. Great food, charming place in a neighbourhood setting, if it weren't for our inattentive and disinterested waiter, I would have given this a five star. Loved the place, and will return.

And boy, where they excellent!!! My travel companion found this address online. What a great lil' restaurant. There is a terrace but it was already fully booked. A reservation is necessary! Very friendly staff. And the food is very good. Started with the fried oysters (very nice discovery) and continued with the Blue Cod (excellent), all that with a nice... More

We visited B & G Oysters on July 1st. We were looking for a place with fresh oysters and good wine selection. We absolutely hit the bull's eye with B & G. We sat at the bar and were helped by Marc (we nicknamed him the tornado, he was so fast, efficient, yet helpful, polite and courteous) who made our... More

I had a lunch with my wife. Although it was raining day on the weekday, the occupancy of this restaurant was around 50% when we entered this restaurant at 12:30 and almost full at the peak time around 13:30. My wife ordered 6 pieces of the milky oysters which were recommended by server and she said all of them were... More
