We were in Boston for just one evening, and were eager to find an alternative to Legal Seafood in the Back Bay. Bingo! Most important...the seafood is AMAZING. We moved to California and lament the poor quality of seafood in West Coast restaurants--mainly because it's...More

This place is very popular by Boylston Street. You can eat inside or outside . They have fresh seafood. The food is very good. Great Atmosphere.

The very location in Back Bay makes it classy, yet prices are so reasonable for a full meal. The walk from downtown is so varied and interesting. But, with snow or rain, a short cab ride from downtown is the solution. Pleasant, relaxed atmosphere and...More

Hi DK, Atlantic Fish is located in the heart of lobster country. We get the freshest lobsters daily and Chef Matt knocks the taste out of the ball park every single time.

Hi Carole, We are so lucky to be in the heart of Backbay in Boston. Between the breathtaking scenery and the amazing people, you can't go wrong.

Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the
heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and

skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock

Atlantic Fish has been a favorite of both locals and tourists alike, offering classics like award-winning New England Clam Chowder and Maine Lobster to more adventurous items such as our signature Swordfish Chop. The understated and timeless decor of the restaurant immediately draws the attention of those who enter. The dining room reminds one of a classic cruising vessel, complete with detailed woodwork and murals reflecting the spirit of the sea. Tailored to intimate dining with cozy booths throughout.
