“Excellent fish in a busy restaurant”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

For such a busy restaurant, we were impressed with the quality of our meal and its general lingering impression. Unfortunately, we ate so many fish dishes the week we were here, only the generic "fish" remains in my recollection. And that it was well-prepared. We would certainly return! (A reservation is probably a must. Or a willingness to wait for some time. This place was busy.)

“Chose randomly but good discovery”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We happened to walk on Boylston St. and saw people eating the lobster roll. It looked so good that we had to stop and try their food. We had a clam chowder, clam roll and crab sandwich. Everything tasted very good. The service was fast and friendly. We discovered thru the waiter that the chef was Canadian (Danny Levesque).

“What a find - thank you, Tripadvisor reviewers!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

During our recent trip to the Boston area coinciding with our 17th wedding anniversary, I browsed Tripadvisor restaurant reviews for a nice restaurant and was again happy to have dined at such a nice place with excellent food. We took our kids along and there was something on the menu for everyone. Wine selection was excellent. Food was great, we all finished everything on our plate.

While it was our anniversary and I was surprised that they only brought us a white plate with 'Happy Anniversary' written across it with chocolate instead of a piece of cake or something, but guess you can't have it all. I made the mistake of taking heels and saw that the place was more casual than I expected, which was great since Boston is a walking city. Would definitely recommend it!

“Best Food”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

They had the best food - sadly I wasn't feeling well but I made myself eat anyway. The clam chowder was good but my husband had the Captain's Platter - the scallop was so fresh and fried perfectly. It was light for fried food and I will be visiting there again!!!
