    The food was excellent. The service was especially outstanding. We were seated at a sort of a low bar facing the window overlooking the harbor. Super view.

    You guys should know that the No Name restaurant closed on Monday 30/19 for good. When we arrived at destination we realised it was closed, and you did not even know about it because I was and I am still receiving notification mails for a reservation we could not enjoy. You should be more informed about the restaurants you work with

    Lobster special was overcooked and tough. Seafood chowder had excellent broth but the fish in it tasted like it had been there all day. You get large coke slaw with everything. That needs more flavor.

    The service was very poor. The server left our food up on the table for several minutes while he was fixing tables and chairs. The food was terrible. It was like food you would get from a freezer section in the grocery store. In fact, the food you get out of the freezer section in the grocery store is better. I was so embarrassed because I invited my family from out of town to this restaurant thinking it would be a treat since it has been in business for so long in Boston! Boy was I wrong! Never again. This business either needs to improve or close down!

    We were looking forward return to the restaurant after a few years, but sorry to say it’s not what it use to be. Fish was very dry and over cooked. The fried clams had a heavy batter and were also over cooked. The coleslaw was tasteless.

    If you want really poor quality food that’s over priced then this is the place. The food was honestly terrible. I’m unsure of why it was suggested for must try. Lobster rolls were just lobster slathered in mayo and put on bread.

    Great experience! This harbor restaurant is a Boston institution. Simple surroundings and simple fare make this one of my favorites. My business associate and I both had the steamed lobster plate. It came with fried shrimp and scallops which are accompanied by a creamy coleslaw and French fries. I washed this all down with a local session IPA. The entire meal was delicious. The service is also stellar. Great waitstaff bring the food, hot and fresh, to your table I will definitely be back when in the Boston area.

    We were excited to try this restaurant as it was recommended by several sources but it was really disappointing. Starting with she hostess who barked “sit wherever you want” to bland and bad food. The server was attentive but the food came out piecemeal, was overcooked (chewy-tough lobster, soggy corn on the cob, tasteless coleslaw and mediocre French fries.). With so many fantastic restaurants serving up excellent food, don’t waste your time, money or calories here. Maybe it doesn’t deserve a name....

    We always make this a must - stop when in the area. The food is fresh, portions generous and staff friendly. They now accept credit cards - a recent addition, which makes this a more popular destination. Located in the fish dock area of Boston, although not easy to get to using public transportation,it is worth the trip. There is parking on site , but you need to exit within 30 minutes of paying your bill. Regular public lots, with high prices are numerous if you plan to walk the area after dinner.

    Cheap bread for an relatively expensive restaurant. Wife ordered steamed lobster, she said it was good. I ordered a steak (I know they aren’t known for steaks but I’m allergic to seafood/shellfish) asked for medium. First steak was so well done it could pass as a hockey puck. Server was nice and replaced the original steak. Told them I wanted it medium rare expecting them to maybe make it medium. Second steak came back almost raw. Decided not to waste more time and just choked down a raw unseasoned steak full of silver skin.

    By far my favorite seafood restaurant in Boston. It's no frills but the freshest seafood you can get for the best price. You won't leave hungry! Make a reservation - they get busy fast and often there are large groups trying to get in!

    A huge disappointment. Fish chowder was horrible. Pieces of cheap fish. My brother-in-laws dinner was not edible. The vegetables actually looked old. It was on the menu as sautéed shrimp but it was actually steamed. Tarter sauce was dumped on the plate and was also on the fries as well as the dry fried shrimp
