I got the Steak Frites and it was fantastic, we sat on the patio overlooking the quiet river and it was peaceful and serene. The inside dining room looked just as quaint for cooler months. The server was very informative and quick. I will be back!

This restaurant inside a condo building on Neponset River has a lovely little bar and a good clientele. The restaurant is large and open, very noisy. The food is good but the menu very limited and a touch foo foo exotic. Overpriced.

Nice place to take someone on a date. The cocktails are good and the crab cakes are big and delicious. I ordered the risotto with scallops and shrimp and my friend ordered a pizza. My entree was a bit salty. 88 Wharf has outdoor seating with a nice view.

88 Wharf has one of the most scenic outdoor dining areas in greater Boston. The Neponset River and the moored boats are a pretty picture for those eating on the patio. The patio seating is very comfortable. The patio itself has attractive plantings and flower beds, so overall the outside experience is extremely pleasant. The interior seating appears attractive and... More

This was our fourth visit to 88 Wharf in the last couple months, and we have had consistently good food on each visit. In particular, excellent fish tacos, sea bass special, crispy salmon - always a good burger and a beer thrown in free on Monday nights. Enjoyed the soba/salmon salad as well. Quiet and peaceful inside, and very pleasant... More

88 Wharf – Milton, MA – 6/27/2016 A lovely waterside locale… Boats in the backdrop and a large outdoor patio make this a great place to meet friends after work… A large bar greets you to the left as you walk in… Black and white walls with stone accents thruout… An interesting array of lighting adds to the ambiance… Mirrors...

Our server was very attentive. The atmosphere was cozy and comfortable. Nice views of the waterfront. The food was great and came out quickly. I had the chicken piccata and it was perfect. A lot of the parking seemed to be reserved and it wasn't very clear where to park if you were just coming to eat but that was... More

The view here is lovely -- order a drink, sit outside, and enjoy the little estuarial basin of the Neponset. Food was disappointing -- bland, boring, expensive. Service was slow.

Don't waste your time or money. We've had two bad experiences here and will not go back for a third. Great location but not worth going.

88 Wharf has a very calming atmosphere...tucked behind the hustle and bustle of Adams Street, it is a hidden gem. Kelly can make any drink you want and the wait staff is courteous and efficient. In the nice weather the patio is a great place to have drinks and a few appetizers. I particularly like their burgers. Instead of driving... More
