Basic but good food

This is a very basic restaurant with no frills! Having said that, the food is very good and the wait staff really friendly and helpful. We had to wait a while for a table as it here aren't many but if you're in the area, would definitely recommend giving it a go!

My family and I very nearly left after arriving as well as a family that came in after we did. Do not expect a scenery that is similar to union oyster house or legal seafood. Maybe about 10 tables or so, with two or three adjacent to the door. With that in mind, each time the door was opened for... More

Yeah, if you're looking for a fancy seafood place, this is not it. However, the lobster rolls are out of this world (probably the best I've had). I swear the lobster was in the ocean an hour before I ate it! I had the breaded lobster roll and my buddy had the warm lobster roll. Both of us just smiled... More

My first time at this restaurant. The staff is friendly and very accomodating. We came in a group and they moved tables to seat us together. The food is freshly prepared and very tasty. The clam chowder is a must-try. I very much enjoyed the Lobster Mac&Cheese. I'll be back to try their other dishes.

This is a tiny place that smells like seafood when you walk in, exactly what you expect from a Boston seafood eatery, I am completely in love with Massachusetts and it's fresh fish, I just wish it wasn't so COLD!

So this is a very casual place, baskets and paper plates but they have everything lobster. And clam chowder. $24 for a 1.5 pound lobster, $14 for the Guy Fieri lobster Mac n cheese. $18 for lobster on a salad, which had plenty of lobster, without the hassle of getting it out of the shell! Local beers on tap. Clam... More

Like many others, we went to this place after reading the reviews - it was small, far away, and hard to find, but we hoped to be rewarded. How disappointed we were! for the same price as most other restaurants (not cheaper, as we expected from the reviews), we got some chewy latex-like lobster and deep fried fish cooked in... More

Guy Fierri had it right. This place is small you are lucky to be seated in less than 20 minutes, (so dont wait till your starving to go) but well worth the wait. Hot Lobster Roll is amazing the Lobster Bisque, went twice during our 4 day trip to Boston. Had to leave once we were pressed for time. Had... More

Go here!!!!!! Very good food, extremely fresh seafood. Informal, laid back but very friendly staff. Fish market environment with a neighborhood feel. You won't be sorry if you eat here!
