If you can tolerate the long wait to be seated, the service and food is excellent. I was there after work with a colleague. We sat at the bar and a very sweet and happy waitress/bartender served us. I had ordered a mackerel dish, but...More

Everyone in my group got the lobster roll as it's highly recommended and it did not disappoint. The lobster roll is $29, so it's definitely on the expensive end, but it's full of warm lobster and you can get it with butter or mayo. The...More

We made sure to come early for the oysters. I love that they described each oyster and that we could just write down the number of oysters we wanted in this "oyster tally sheet." The oysters were delicious! I would have wanted to try the...More

Reason enough to come to Boston. I had the Maine lobster roll buttered with house Chardonnay it was wonderful. This meal was the best in my life delicious. Oysters were the freshest I've ever had. Vast variety.

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.
