Son and I stopped here after Red Sox game. Place was pretty empty. Ordered lobster pot stickers, lobster roll and 1.5 lbs Lobster and all were excellent. Service was excellent and enjoyed the atmosphere. Price to value was fair. Would eat here again.

Good food but the place a bit noisy. The attention is not highlighted either but it was near the hotel so was our best option.

Went there for dinner. Small but satisfying seafood menu. Had the clam chowder soup , for Boston , I expected better. I had the pan seared Haddock on mashed potatoes with asparagus and mushrooms, this was very good. Waitress was attentive. Service was quick
