We discovered this restaurant from TripAdvisor. It has one of the best New England Clam Chowder we have ever tasted. We bought fresh shrimp from this place and then cooked dinner that night. The shrimp was so fresh and so delicious for dinner. We also bought some extra clam chowder to take home for dinner. They serve food there was... More

If you're looking for a decent, local lobster place then come here. You won't get fancy decoration or table service but you do get cheap tasty seafood with some local beers. The place is small and after ordering at the counter it's a scramble to find a table before someone else takes one but you're rewarded with what feels like... More

It's a fast food style fish restaurant where you eat on plastic plates, cutlery, etc. Very small & the food while plentiful had absolutely no taste! The lobster roll was $20.99 - filled with nice chunks of lobster meat but the rolli is actually toast & the whole thing had no taster whatsoever!! My son has the calamari - which... More

This place is a little hole in the wall, but is awesome! Fish & chips were great, and lobster mac n' cheese was delicious!

Located in the south part of Boston's industrial neighborhood, the restaurant is small with limited indoor seating. There is outdoor seating when the weather cooperates. This was my first foray into lobster rolls and it was amazing. The fresh lobster was was lightly coated in mayonnaise but not overwhelming as to cover the taste of the lobster. The amount of...

The servers here are great, and they try very hard. The wait is crazy as the tables are first come. I witnessed a few competitive bids for tables that caused angry customers to fight over who arrived first. The lobster rolls didn't look appetizing at all. The Chowder was awful - some weird taste or spice in it. The lonster... More

This place was just down the street from my hotel and had some pretty good reviews so I thought I would try it. I was not disappointed. The lobster bisque and lobster roll were fantastic. I added a great local beer and had a great meal for about $30.

This place is small, noisy and busy! The food is excellent. Don't go for the atmosphere. Go for the uniqueness and great food!
