We googled ”best lobster roll in Boston” and that's how we found B&G. We were both very pleased with the meal, consisting of one lobster roll each plus a couple of oysters. Service was friendly and efficient.
B&G Oysters is always a fun dining experience. We love the casual and open kitchen atmosphere where you can watch oysters being shucked, your fish being seared and the good natured attitude of the staff. The seafood is always fresh and of the highest quality and a selection of oysters of all types.
This is a great neighborhood restaurant that serves locals more than tourists. The oysters are especially wonderful with a great choice of different sources and flavors. They may have the best clam chowder I’ve ever tasted! After 2 tries,
I do not recommend the pricey lobster roll due to the dryness and bland flavor. If you have to have it,
I do recommend adding a healthy dollop of mayonnaise which you can ask for. The wasit staff are very helpful with good recommendations.
We came to eat before the Theatre. The food was delicious. During the meal we kept adding to our order when we would see meals pass by. Our waitress was engaging, attentive, smart and personable. Service was prompt and not pressured. We really like coming here. Though we are from out of town it has a neighborhood feel. Our table overlooked the food prep area and we were impressed how pleasant and careful the cooks were. The B&G shucker should give lessons - amazing to watch him make it look so effortless!
Love this place! Oysters were excellent cod was delicious squid, octopus and gnocchi so good. Our server Andre was helpful personable and a great guy. We plan to be regulars.
Met a wicked smart, witty (and super cute) woman - I'll call her Joanne - here for lu-nner (brunch's superior cousin). I jabbered on nervously... As I tend to do. Overall, great experience ... Some smiles, good conversation, solid oysters and healthy pours of wine (thank goodness). I'd totally go back to learn how to shuck if given the chance (sounds fun, right?!). I'd also consider something totally different (yes ... even brunch). Maybe I'll dash out of the car less rudely, even. Ball is in her court now.
Delicious seafood and good service. Way too loud. We were there on a Thursday night and the noise was so loud that we could barely talk at our own table. The noise is the only thing that would keep us away from this really cute restaurant.
Came here with a friend for dinner. Kids in the corner were ridiculously loud and we were seated right by the door so we got constant whooping of cold air every time someone came in or out. Really fresh oysters but tiny portions for other food for the price.
Food and service was outstanding we will become regulars
Saturday night date. The place is small, loud and crowded. Portions are small and overpriced. Ordered several courses but we still left hungry. Wine list is extensive but they only offer a couple of options by the half bottle or carafe, so ordering wine is extremely expensive. We won’t be back.
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.
B & G is a staple when we visit Boston. Oyster varieties change often with availability and sampling is part of the experience. Menu is creative and quality/prep are tops. Wine and beer list has something for everyone and drinks well. Open kitchen is a plus as we always choose to sit at the counter. Highly recommend.
Food was great but pricey for the portion. Wines by the glass limited.
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.
Excellent oysters. The best since I was there last time! Always fresh and innovative Fish dishes. The Fried clams and oysters were incredible. Never had a bad meal at B&G Oyster Bar!
Arrival to departure, everything was delicious.
It was really great! Food was delicious. Got the scallops and my fiance got the cod. Couldn't recommend it more.
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.
Oysters were awesome !
First visit here, great selection of oysters! Loved the food, service was over the top.
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.
Everything was fine, but nothing exceptional.
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.
Never disappoints! Fish is fresh, staff lovely, wine choices superb! We never miss an opportunity to dine at B&G!
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.
Oysters were good, my wife had scollops and the were over done and not particularly fresh. I had fried clams and the were only ok. I was very disappointed.
We sat at the bar and enjoyed a variety of their small plates. Everything was just excellent. Highly recommend the croquets.
Great food and atmosphere!
Food and wine is amazing and staff is exceptional!
Great food and service. Small but well-curated wines by the glass list. The appetizer portions are quite large—and the appetizers are expensive—the cost of main courses at many restaurants. May I suggest halving the portion size of appetizers AND the cost and you'll liukely please more people.
The seafood is fresh but way too expensive. Row 34 is a much better value.
Broad choices, wonderful flavors, accommodating service
Nice local place. Very hospitable and easy to enjoy. Food delicious. Atmosphere inviting. Hard to complain which is rare (perhaps needs more lighting at night). Overall very pleasant experience. We'll be back!
We have been to B&G several times after theater performances and it never disappoints. Beginning with the greeting from Randy at the entrance making us feel most welcome and keeps us coming back for more of that fine hospitality. In addition, the food is excellent, we especially enjoy the Fried Oysters and some of our party eat them raw as well with good comments. The scallops, gnocchi, and cod are our favorite entrees. Prices are a little steep and portions a tad small for hardier appetites but neither would keep me from coming back again and again!
I have never been disappointed at B&G! This time was no exception.
My favorite. Has an incredibly high standard and it pays off. Amazing service and Wine. Oysters are top but other seafood choices do not disappoint.
Was great meal. Non intrusive service. Will recommend this place to friends!
B&G really hit the mark after hearing so many great things. It's much smaller than I expected, maybe 10 tables and a bar. Our server was incredibly nice and attentive. The oysters were so good we got another round. Highly recommend this spot for a date night or a casual dinner.
