“Great seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Came here for oysters, they were delicious, as were the fish mains. Pricey though. Friendly service, lots of walk-ins being turned away, so book.

We went there after two friends suggested the restaurant. We ate on the patio and had lobster rolls. Great food and friendly, attentive service.

“Disappointed by service, Delighted by food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

We had the fried oysters, clam chowder, calamari, fish and chips, and crab cake sandwich. Of everything - the most memorable were the fried oysters - perfectly crisp and creamy. The calamari was tender and well fried. The clam chowder was very small portions - and had more potatoes vs. clams. However the bites were flavorful. From a food standpoint - interesting. I like open kitchens so you can see what people are cooking. However, it was hard to overlook the service and how incapable the manager was w/ dealing with a walk in group of 6. They were not busy as well (2 open tables on the inside). Maybe it was an off day - but there were too many missteps/snide comments to ignore. Our group felt disgruntled at the end of the meal. I think for the amount that you pay per meal I would expect service to be at a better level. I would go with max a group of two and just beware the service.

“Best lobster rolls in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

We tried this place for lunch after it was recommended by the sister restaurant, Butcher Shop. We ended up eating here for lunch everyday! It was that good. We sat outside twice and inside at the bar once. It was so cool to watch the dishes prepared. The lobster rolls were amazing! The clam chowder was also fantastic. Next time in Boston, we will definitely visit here again.
