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!

We timed dinner just right at the Hanover Street location. With close quarters, people WILL wait outside in the Boston cold for this. fried calamari app was tender and fresh, small size is enough to share. Broiled haddock best I've ever had, owner said fresh off the boat that week. Black squid ink... read more

I learned about this place by seeing the lobster fra diavlo on the Food Network. I told my friends we had to go with our wives. It is a Sicilian seafood restaurant so know that before going. Had the calmalri as an appetizer which was simple but good. We got the lobster fra diavlo for 3, the more who go... More

This is a tiny restaurant in the North End, so you might have to wait a while to be seated, but it's well worth it. Seafood is fresh and prepared to perfection. I had an excellent and very large piece of swordfish prepared with lots of garlic, olive oil, and lemon. I'm salivating just thinking about how good it was.... More

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
