I loved the location and the feel of this upscale raw bar diner. If you are in search of oysters, this is the place to go. They also have some of the best lobster rolls outside of Maine, too. The service was great and very...More

A comfortable casual restaurant with very good New England style seafood. Lobster roll really tasted like lobster- not fillers; very good soft shells; ample portions. Do ask about valet parking when you book. We spent a lot of time trying to find the location for...More

We enjoyed lunch here. We had a dozen oysters very good. Both had the lobster roll. The roll was nice and buttery filled with lobster amazing roll. Fires were the perfect crunch and flavor. Pickles are must.

We stopped for lung at B&G while walking in Boston’s South End. Great choice! Outstanding oysters on half shell, and lightly fried calamari was perfect. Saw many other interesting seafood choices being served, so looking forward to returning again. Service was great, friendly and knowledgeable...More

After tough day racing, enjoyed great seafood meal at this small restaurant. Freshest oysters and tasty lobster roll. Wine was pricey, but beer was reasonable.
