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!

A simple restaurant with counter service, and paper plates and plasticware - but spectacular fresh and tasty fish cooked to order. Friendly, accommodating staff. A pretty good value on the Boston restaurant market.

Awesome little hole in the wall! Friendly staff with a small diner atmosphere. Lobster roll and clam chowder were great as well as UFO beer. A "homey" place to dine.

This is not a fancy restaurant. It's just very good seafood. Not fussy. We've been here three times and it's been consistently good. The lobster roll is delicious as are the scallops and the swordfish. You can sit outside in the warm weather. Inside is cozy. Service is pleasant. Priced fairly for the quality.

Went over for dinner after touching down at the airport. This café is just 5~10 mins drive after picking-up your rental car from the airport. It was snowing when I arrived at around 8:45 pm and they were about to close for the day. Luckily, the cashier still allow me to place the order for a lobster roll ($18.99) and... More

My husband became addicted to lobster rolls on our trip, but of all the ones he tried these were his favorite by far. Nice, casual atmosphere, and great food!

Small little low key place down the street from the upscale places in the new thriving Seaport area, BUT One of the best chowders I've ever had, as good a lobster roll as I've had anywhere in the world, outstanding huge non-greasy fried clams, really tasty french fries. Best meal I had in a 9 day trip to Boston and... More
