I came here for my birthday one year because I love seafood and had heard this had some of the best seafood in the city. It's true that the food is very good, but I don't think the value lives up to the prices. The...More

Finally I was able to give this a try - Monday night, right at 5pm and we pulled up to see what the wait was ... got a parking spot in the street right in front, and seats at the bar overlooking the shucking station...More

So this place is tiny, but worth the wait. Grab a seat and order the hot lobster roll. You can thank me later. I really cannot say enough about how awesome it was!

Arrived for lunch on a rainy Thursday about 15 minutes before they opened. Shocked that there were probably 10 people ahead of us. I now understand why. Totally worth it. Had 4 oysters, then clam chowder and a warm lobster roll. Overall, great experience and...More

Local standout, long wait, you must show up in person and put your name on a list, they will call you when hey are ready for you, usually 1-3 hour wait. Stick with oysters, ciopinno, scallops and you will be pleased. The place is very...More

Visited this restaurant whilst in Boston for a weekend. The oysters are phenomenal but their menu had lots of variety as well. Had the littleneck clams which were out of this world. Would definitely visit again when in Boston. Would recommend that you visit early...More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

Sure, like I can really help. Did you order any Oysters, if yes what kind? Did you order a lobster roll, then with or without butter and hot or cold? Did your server have a tatoo, if yes was it fresh or an older one. Finally... More

Go early, like 4, to get on their list, then wander the North End which is fun and you will eventually be called and likely make dinner 'tween 5 - 6. It is worth the wait for sure.
