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

My friend and I went here while on vacation. Ordered this big tray of crab. Washed it down with some beers. Was one of the highlights of our trip.

Great lobster and seafood and much better value than the touristy places! Low key and understated but the lobster was a cracker! Do yourself a favour.

I asked by boyfriend to find one of those low key, authentic lobster places you find on the side of the road in New England, and boy, oh, boy did he deliver! This place was EXACTLY what I wanted. We had fun enjoying our heavily buttered, cholesterol laden delicacies with a nice cold beer, and even played "wave the lobster... More
