"I decided on the hot lobster roll with butter over the cold version with mayo."
"Came here for Valentine's day and I recommend their clam chowder."

One of my favorite oyster places in Boston! Their selection of oysters and other seafood is astounding. They do not take reservations so you may be waiting for some time. It's definitely worth it though!

You need to get there right when it opens to get a spot. If not, you'll probably be waiting 1-2 hours for a seat. We showed up right when it opened at lunch and got in right before the wait started creeping to 1 hour. Oyster selection was good. Had the lobster roll. Was good, but I've had better in town. Fun small place to check out while in town.

The most delicious seafood and steak in the entire city of Boston. The raw fish is very fresh, and the cooked fish is more than delicious. The staff are friendly, the wine flows well, and the steaks are cooked to perfection. If you are looking for a romantic or delicious place to bring someone, this is definitely it!

I'm from Maine and I will always say we have the best lobster rolls hands down but this place has set a new standard for Boston. Waitress was great ! Food was quickly made and like stated above tasted amazing. If you're looking for a great lobster roll get the buttered warm meat and you may see heaven.

We had the lobster roll (hot with butter) and it was AMAZING. We went on a Tuesday night around 7 to put our name in, and ended up waiting about an hour and 45 minutes. If you go here expect a pretty decent wait. If you go pretty much any time after 7, it will be too late and they won't be able to put your name down. (The restaurant seats only about 30 or so). They will call you when your table is ready however. The wait staff was extremely nice, we had to wait a few extra minutes for our roll, so our waitress gave us free fried clams.. (which were just as amazing as the lobster roll, I'd also recommend these ). Again, expect to wait for a seat..but it's worth it!!

This place is ridiculously small, and very, very popular, so expect ridiculous wait times to be seated. And if you do get a table, expect to be arm and shoulder with your neighbors. That said, if you can get in, the food is good. Obviously oysters are a smart and natural choice. I would happily have given five stars, but one time I had a lobster roll and noticed that the lobster had brown/green coloring throughout large portions of if. I'm not sure if this just meant the lobster wasn't properly cleaned but was still okay to eat- regardless, I didn't enjoy it, that's for sure. Ive had many lobster rolls in my life and never saw one that had that issue.

As long a quoted wait time as I have ever heard of. The hostess had not trouble telling a group of 5 behind us that the wait would be 3 1/2 hours. We waited 2 1/2 hours. So, when you don't take reservations and give out quotes like this, you better be able to back it up with great food. They did. My wife and I each got the Lobster Roll hot with butter. Look, if you like Lobster Rolls, this is THE ONE. 'Nuff said.
