We went here on a whim since all other restaurants had an hour wait. And we were so glad we did. Had an amazing bowl of clam chowder and one of the best Lobster rolls I have eaten. This is not a sit down service type restaurant. You order at the counter and they will bring you your food. Another... More

Nothing fancy, just great, fresh food. The staff was prompt and pleasant and the simple, no nonsense atmosphere was perfect. Fantastic Clam Chowder and super Yankee Fish Sandwich were the bombs!

We've walked by Yankee Lobster on numerous occasions on our way to Harpoon and have always been curious. I wish we had tried this place sooner, we were totally missing out. The seafood is as fresh as it gets and the prices are so reasonable. Give this place a try you won't be disappointed.

Like Diners, Drive Ins and Dives? Then you will love this place! Fresh fish and seafood. We had the DDD special-cod cakes with onion rings and cole slaw. Also had fish and chips. Busy, but the line moves quickly. Walking distance to the convention center. A must for fresh seafood in Boston.

When you are in Boston you just gotta have lobster and this is an excellent choice. Decent prices and great selection. Tried the lobster roll, crab cake, chowder, and tuna wrap. Would recommend it all.

We had the best lobster roll ever here. Also had the lobster Mac & Cheese for the first time anywhere & we predict it will also become the best ever. Very casual place near the waterfront. A "must" during any visit to boston.

Saw this little place on this food show so we tried it. The fish was fantastic! You stand in line and place your order and pay. The staff bring the food out to you and will shout out names. Very informal and everyone gabs while in line. Chowder, clams and fish and chips that night were just great! The price... More

Incomparable. 3 varieties of lobster roll plus fish and crabs. I think everything is cooked fresh and expect to wait if you go over lunch. Highly recommended and easy to find adjacent to the wharf amphitheater.

We were hungry for Fish & Chips and came here straight from the airport! The menu board is colorful and the fish & chips were great! The original owner,Frankie, is holding a huge lobster in a black and white picture on the wall according to the local near our table. (He also states he was"there when that picture was taken!")...

Yankee Lobster is located at Boston Seaport and has the freshest lobster ever. Although there were other great looking items such as steamers and grilled fish, I could not get past the lobster. Actually, I ate there all four nights during my meeting. The first night, I had the whole lobster, but I saw so many people eating lobster rolls... More
