Delicious, large selectionDelicious, large selection of oysters, and knowledgeable staff. Appetizers and desserts to share - make for a great Sunday brunch.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable DinnerThe seafood was fresh and well prepared, the salad was excellent, and ambiance was great -- busy, noisy crowd of people. Our servers were helpful and attentive but not overbearing. Not a place for a romantic dinner, but a nice way to show off an interesting part of Boston to out of town friends.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat oysters at the family placeFirst of all - this place is called B&G oysters - so try oysters!!! When we visited them they had 12 or 13 different types of oysters - they were very good!!! Very and very good!
We noticed that a lot of local people eat different seafood sandwiches - did not try as we were full with our choices but they did look very and very delicious.
They do not have a grilled lobster in their menu BUT they do have a fantastic pasta with lobster - my second stong reomendation after oysters!!! It is something great!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLove watching the kitchen at B&G!!!We had a late (3pm) lunch at B&G and were able to sit at the "bar" watching the kitchen. A great spot. We had an assortment of oysters that were excellent, the pea salad which was very unique and tasty, the fiddleheads were delicious and the lobster orchiette.
The lobster orchiette was outstanding. Wish there was a lot more of it (there were three of us sharing). Each bit was bursting with flavor. For dessert we had two things you must try: the chocolate mousse with toffee, salt and olive oil (obscenely good); and the lemon/coconut tart (super lemony).
Great place to go for an afternoon lunch or early dinner.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWednesday Date NightMy wife and I have recently been trying restaurants in the South End and found B&G Oysters just walking by. It was too busy that night, so we made a reservation for a weekday night out. We choose to sit at the bar and had a great waitress! Watching all the food get prepared was great! We were happy with our Oysters, peapod salad (very unique) and fish. I would highly recommend this place and can't wait to go back for the lobster roll and fried clams....5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSwept away by the tideThe food is great!! An amazing selection of oysters from a vast variety of places! We will be back soon! The fries are very yummy and make a great dessert4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBoston Seafood + South End VibeWe went on a Tuesday night and had a great time. The energy was fantastic. The setting is versatile with both inside counter and back patio seating options. The tilefish was perfectly cooked as were the brussel sprouts and mussels/fries. The ice cream sandwich for dessert was the perfect finale for the meal. I would recommend B&G to anyone with friends visiting town. B&G has become my favorite Boston seafood spot. The food trumps Island Creek and other notable seafood rivals and given the South End neighborhood, the setting is much much hipper.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOver many visits the restaurantOver many visits the restaurant is consistently excellent!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBest oysters!!

Great appetizers.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHands down the best calamariHands down the best calamari I've ever eaten. Anywhere. That's all you need to know. But if you want to know more, very tasty and excellently cooked food, nice low key vibe, friendly wait staff who are enthusiastic about their product and not a huge wine list but everything on there goes very well with what they serve. As long as you can get the right wine, who cares how many others there are to chose from? Oh, also, one of the few places in Boston that I feel I can get really good seafood and the quality matches the price. Surprising for a town right on the water but there you go.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food unique optionsGreat food unique options and of coarse good oyesters4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe could see the clean kitchenWe could see the clean kitchen and watch the team work within the kitchen and beyond with all workers including hostess and wait staff taking care of the customer. Nice to see good management in action.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe oysters are amazing. TheThe oysters are amazing. The additional menu items are just as tasty. The wait staff was very friendly and energentic.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the oyster selection.Love the oyster selection. They were shuck to perfection. I used to be a fan of Neptune Oyster but would now head only to B&G - almost partly due to the fact they do take reservations! Crudo was AMAZING. Fried oysters were good but I much prefer the raw version. The choc mousse was also terrific. It was hand whipped (you can tell) and had a lovely olive oil drizzler and cracked sea salt. I'm not a mousse person but this was divine.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe came for early dinner duringWe came for early dinner during rest. week. Our server gave us great wine to match our food choices. We took the pre fix dinner - all choices were great! While bringing us the first course - tartar fish, she realized it was a mistake but she offered to keep it for free and also gave us the salad we ordered originally. At the end the tartar fish was very delicate dish! The clam chowder soup was amazing. The scallops are to die for! Also notable was the chocolate mousse with the pinch of sea salt. We will come againe - it was a great place to eat before a play!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMboutique styleEnjoyed this marvelous boutique sized restaurant with my daughter and two adult granddaughters. Although we were doing the "Restaurant Week" menu one of us ordered from the regular menu and two of us tested the extensive oyster menu. The wine list by the glass allowed all of us to order by tastes. Great German and French wines. Service was knowledgeable and friendly3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect place!Great food in a vibrant place! We went on restaurant week and share everything, so we can grab a better idea of this place. Everything was delicious, the only downside was desserts..... Too heavy for our taste... And we love chocolate mousse but this one was too much...but in general... Perfect place!!we will be back ;-)3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING lobster roll - theAMAZING lobster roll - the BEST I've ever had, and fries/slaw were perfect as well. FANTASTIC place, and food.
