Thankfully we had made reservations as there was a two hour wait when we arrived, and I can see why. The food was very good and the portions were more than generous. Service was great too. I would highly recommend to anyone - including families.

So Abe & Louis is a Boston institution, steak house supreme. Atlantic is the sister, 2 doors down, and the fish equivalent of this great restaurant family. Great buzzy atmosphere and fantastic food. Definitely go!

Atlantic Fish has been a favorite of both locals and tourists alike, offering classics like award-winning New England Clam Chowder and Maine Lobster to more adventurous items such as our signature Swordfish Chop. The understated and timeless decor of the restaurant immediately draws the attention of those who enter. The dining room reminds one of a classic cruising vessel, complete with detailed woodwork and murals reflecting the spirit of the sea. Tailored to intimate dining with cozy booths throughout.
