This is a small restaurant with mostly seafood and many kinds of oysters. The food is good and those at the bar can watch their dinner being shucked. Wait staff is friendly and efficient

Excellent seafood. The Octopus was done perfectly, and wide variety of fresh oysters. Staff attentive and kitchen staff are visible and all professional. Would recommend to anyone looking for great, simply done, rock sold seafood choices.

You’d have a hard time finding a better meal in Boston. B&G is run by a management that cares about the food, personnel, and customers. The oysters are world class and everything else is too.
