“THE BEST LOBSTER!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2011

Oh my gosh, the BEST fresh lobster I've ever had. I ordered the small one, and the price was very reasonable. Other Boston area menus I looked at had much higher prices for an equivalent size. The next day I went back for lunch and had a fabulous fried oyster sandwich. Highly recommend!!

“Great food in a crowded place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2011

Our concierge (The Lenox) got us a reservation on very short notice. We took a drink at the bar until our table was ready. It was a great atmosphere although it was pretty crowded.
Then we were offered a beautiful table at the window. Our waiter was very helpful and gave some great recommendations. We both had clamchouder and my girlfriend had fried scallops as an entree and I got the cod fish. We had a great pinot which was also a recommendation of our waiter.
Overall great food and a fantastic atmosphere.

“Great Place for Lobster”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2011

My wife had a lobster craving (Boston makes people want seafood) and we looked at different places and we were glad to see this is a reasonably priced nice restaurant. Not sure it is THE best but definitely a nice restaurant with good service, decent presentation, and pretty good food all at a price that is fair.  I would reccomend this place for a nice dinner with family, friends, or even couples.

“Fantastic Seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2011

We recently visited Atlantic Fish Co. to celebrate our 2-1/2 year anniversary. Not only was the food outstanding, but the waiter comped us the flourless chocolate cake and even wrote "Congratulations" in chocolate syrup around the edge of the plate. The waiter's recommendations were excellent and we were extremely pleased with the quality of food and the staff. We're from Boston and we know seafood and this has to be one of the best spots in the city!
