Very Good and Affordable!

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

Not a bad stop to stop in for a good lobster roll. As tasty as it was the size was a bit lacking. I was still hungry. The chowder was good but not great. Not a lot of seating either.

A native Bostonian friend of the family sent us here to get the best lobster roll. We had classic, hot and fried in our group. All were delish. Price was great. Big chunks of meat, not the cubes Legal Seafoods puts in their roll and charges 30% more. Seating is hit or miss when busy, but that is part of... More

The place is packed with locals getting their hands dirty with yummy lobster. The seafood was incredibly fresh and the chowder, one of the best Ive tried (but I still prefer the SF clam chowder). Service is weak, they need to improve that!!! Its a good place to have lobster for a reasonable price.

Went for late lunch on a Friday afternoon. The place is small but there are also tables outside. Fresh fish displayed in the cabinet and great menu to choose from. Had the hot lobster roll, bisque, fried clams, and raw oysters. Everything was fabulous. The fried clams were the best I've ever had! Lobster roll was stuffed with large chunks... More

50$ for a deli dinner for 2 is a bit high. Clam chowder isn't that great, Lobster roll was ok but anemic. Lobster mac and cheese was good but smallish portion.

While waiting on the Harpoon brewery tour next door we had lunch at this fish market. The fish and chips with the halibut upgrade were excellent and the Harpoon beer was ice cold.

We decided to stop by because my friend saw it on Triple D's. And the food was what we expected. I had a great lobster roll. My friend had the lobster mac and cheese. We left happy! This was my second visit here, I am from CA.

Everyone seems to rave about this little hole-in-the-wall diamond in the rough. This tiny place located near the bay in the Boston Seaport District and featured on Triple D was good, but nothing to write home about. The clam chowder was really a let down. It had nice flavor, but lacked the creamy, rich thickness of New England Clam Chowder.... More
