Description: With our black pasta dish: Aglio Olio rated top 100 in the country, The Daily Catch - Seaport is considered by many as the best place to enjoy Pasta, Seafood and most importantly Calamari in Boston. Footsteps from the water, you can enjoy the ocean breeze while sipping wine or cocktails on our Outdoor Patio. Or you can sit in any of our newly renovated dinning rooms with stunning views of the Boston Harbor and City Skyline while taking in the aroma of fresh ingredients from our open kitchen. We are the #1 Seafood Restaurant in Boston's Seaport District according to Zagat Food Ratings. Your reservation is only a click away! Please note: The Daily Catch - Seaport gladly accepts online reservations for our indoor dining-room. We are, however, unable to accept online reservations for our outdoor patio due to our inability to guarantee favorable weather conditions. Patio seating is offered to patrons, as weather and availability permits, on a first-come, first-serve basis. Thank You!

I've been eating at the Daily Catch since before they had a name. It used to just say Calimari on the green awning. Truly the best, freshest seafood, in my opinion. It is TINY. Very tiny. Only about 14 seats. THEY ONLY TAKE CASH. I put that in caps because if you get there and wait in line only to... More

I can't believe that the negative reviews of this place were put in the correct place. All of our meals were absolutely amazing. We started with apps, calimari meatballs intrigued us so we started with them, delicious. Steamed mussels, yes please, delicious. On to our meals, the scallops with linguine was amazing, I opted for the fra diavlo sauce. I... More

We got in right away for lunch because it was a very wet snowy Saturday in Boston and not many folks were out so no wait. The menu is handwritten on a chalk board (kinda hard to read). It is very very TINY and casual. We were seated right next to the Chef/Cook Chris and it was really cool to... More

Friendly staff, great food, really enjoyed the seafood. A small gem that we'll visit again. Just bear in mind that it's cash only.

On North End you'll find the Daily Catch. It's incredibly small, so expect to queue. But it's really worth the wait. The Chef has four hot plates to work with. The restaurant has sittings of 18 at a time. The food is AMAZING! SO while it might hot be tope end dining, the food experience of black squid with scallops... More

We went here on New Year's eve and are glad we did! To look at the place, you would not think much of it, maybe 20 seats tops, only three people working, a cook, a waiter and a bus boy. BUT, let me tell you, the food was outstanding and the service we got from the waiter, Chris was over... More

My friend was raving about this restaurant after his visit and he was spot on. Try the black squid pasta agilio olio style and share a calamari platter with a friend. Great food but long wait - we got there around 5:30 pm but didn't get seated until close to 7.

My family has a tradition, every time we are in Boston we stop at the Daily Catch! You can't go wrong with any thing on their menu. It's all mouthwatering. The lobster diablo is always one of my favorites.
