Large Assortment of Oysters

We went to B&G's at the end of June with a group of 4 people and were able to sit outside in the basement Garden. They have a extensive selections of Oysters and the Oyster lovers in our group enjoyed the Oysters. The Cod dinner was very good but it had very little potatoes and vegetables. The... read 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

Stumbled onto B & G Oysters when looking for something in Boston near the Prudential Center. Nice, quiet neighborhood. Indoor and patio seating. Quiet enough to chat, with an upbeat atmosphere. Seriously, this was the best service I have ever had. Never out of water, never left with dirty plates, the food flowed at an unhurried pace without feeling like... More

Very cute spot they got here in a nice neighborhood. I recommend everyone grabbing a seat at the patio if you can. The fried oysters were to die for. I recommend dipping the complementary bread into the sauce of the fried oysters, simply delicious!! The Parm Mac & Cheese with peas and bacon was delicious as well as all three... More

The good news was the oyster selection was great and they were delicious. French fries are excellent Lobster rolls were small, lobster was not sweet, and it was expensive and tasteless. The roll was cold, soggy and tasteless. Other dishes were better but not at all special. Deserts were good. Wine overpriced. Ambience: loud. Casual Service: average. I would not... More

Visited with friends while in Boston for a few days. The atmosphere is cool and hip and buzzing for a Sunday night. We had east coast oysters which were delicious, paired with some bubbly. The shishito peppers were also an added yum factor. I had the halibut with cherry tomatoes and castelvetran olives in a broth that was to die... More

Disliked? Nothing! This place is THE place for fresh seafood, great personnel, and comfortable indoor & outdoor dining in Boston. Have a selection of eastern oysters & clams, and HAVE THE LOBSTER BLT!

The food here is remarkable; the locals have made it a favorite. I don't know why the owners make it such an unpleasant place to eat! When we arrived we were jammed into the tiny place with terrible music blasting away. We asked and they turned it down; sorta, kinda. Just to clarify my husband's a musician and I love... More

Had a delicious lunch. East coast oysters, halibut tartare (was amazing) and a spinach salad. Attentive service, minimal but nice decor. Pretty expensive for lunch but very good.
