“A Great Catch !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

Although very busy, service was excellent and efficient. We werent too adventurous, but had been told this was THE place for seafood. So (boing, I know) we had the clam chowder and a 2lb lobster each. Wow ! Now I am not a chowder expert (nearly all restaurants say theirs is prize-winning), but it was every bit as good as any other I'd tasted. How could I describe the lobster except verging on perfect. We choose a Cloudy Bay to wash it down with and OK although pricey, walked out smiling, but very gently.....

“Great place for Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

Walked by this restaurant then decided to turn around and try it for lunch, we were not disappointed. We opted for a light lunch but the salads were more than ample and the lobster bisque was Devine as was the key lime pie.

“A must for all fish lovers visiting Boston”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

Wanting to take in some of the great quality fish scene in Boston we thought why not go to the best for it in town.

We were not left disappointed from the service to the cocktail menu it was 5 stars all the way through. Scallops wrapped in bacon for starter and seared sesame tuna for main...to die for!

“Lobster Ravioli!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013 via mobile

First night in Boston, our first pick for dinner place. Review was saying great and thought would give it a try. Had crab cake, lobster bisque and clam chowder; winner is the crab cake! I have tried hundreds of crabcakes, so fart Atlantic grill won second to wolfgangpuck. Both soup werent rich in flavor perhaps i never tried Boston ones before. Had the fried mix seafood and lobster ravioli, ravioni is really great n pasta just the right firm and sauce is perfect. Ended up with the red velvet cake with icecream. Bravo!

“"Wicked good" seafood place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

My family and I dined at this restaurant on two separate evenings while visiting Boston. I had the fish & chips, which were excellent, and my wife had the grilled cod and haddock, which she enjoyed. The clam chowder was good, too. Prices were reasonable, and service was good. Place can get a little loud, but that was the only negative. We would return again when visiting Boston, and recommend this place to other couples or families traveling with children.
