B&G Oysters is a modern yet classic take on the oyster bar. Located in Boston's South End, B&G Oysters has a decidedly neighborhood feel, combining polished but friendly service with fantastically fresh seafood dishes and food-friendly wines. B&G Oysters has received many accolades over the years for its cuisine and wine program including "Best Seafood" in 2007 and 2008 by Boston Magazine.

This subterranean spot draws energy from its open kitchen which is surrounded by a white marble bar. In warmer weather, enjoy drinks and more on the stone patio; a favorite outdoor dining spot in the city. Please note that all reservations are for the interior of the restaurant. Our patio is available solely on a walk-in basis.

Very surprised at the quality of the food that was able to be produced from such a small kitchen. Cute and quaint little spot, will definitely be back.

Had several recommendations to go there. Small casual restaurant but did not feel crowded (make a reservation!). Excellent oysters, and did try the fried oysters which were also excellent - not greasy and nice sauce. Entrees had great flavors. Service was very good. Would definitely go again.

We are never disappointed, always start with a dozen on the half shell, but the first time I was talked into trying the fried oysters, I thought, "sacrilege!", but boy was I glad I did.

We hadn't been here in about 10 years, and was happy to see it still open and somewhat busy on a Thursday night. Our waiter was great, helpful with wine list, and attentive. The menu was somewhat limited, however, and the prices pretty steep for what you got. Each dish was a tad less than satisfying, except maybe the lobster blt, which was huge, piled with crispy french fries, and a good option to split. The oysters were DELICIOUS, ice cold, perfectly shucked and presented. So I would choose this spot as a first stop, have a glass of cold white wine or bubbles with some delicious oysters, and then move on for dinner.

We had a wonderful time at B&G Oysters! While it is pricey, this is the perfect place for a special occasion/date night. The raw fare was excellent, as well as the lobster roll and fried clams. Great wine selection and intimate venue was also part of the fun.

Oysters as always were terrific! Main courses were mediocre. Scallops were nicely done but accompaniments were blah and the squash was undercooked. The seafood stew lacked oomph.

One of my very favorites, can come here weekly. Always great ambience and creative dishes. I love being able to watch the chefs- every seat in this restaurant has views into the kitchen.
