We went for Mother’s Day and they neglected to tell us in advance or post on their website that they had a limited menu. One of the mothers who has been there before (and loves B & G) cannot eat a lot of fat due to no gall bladder and the only options were fried food for Mother’s Day and she was at a loss. Very sad considering it was her special day and she basically couldn’t eat anything for fear of getting violently ill. She picked at some things but not at all worth the high prices. I am sad to say this is probably the last time we will be dining at B & G.
Food was ok, but we had to wait for our entrees more than an hour. The waiter gave us free drinks to help us wait.
Always a wonderful experience and delicious food at B&G!
We loved the atmosphere, food was wonderful, and the staff were very helpful and friendly.
Great place, always fresh and tasty seafood with excellent wine choices.
Simply the best!
This place was a gem! Food was unbelievably delicious, we had a selection of oysters that were all fantastic, and the lobster rolls were on point! Our waitress was so friendly and the atmosphere was a relaxed vibe/neighborhood feel. Truly a highlight of our Boston trip!
The best halibut I’ve ever had! This is my go-to seafood spot in all of boston.
Great food and warm, friendly service.
Wonderful as usual. The mushroom carpaccio salad is a winner.
Expensive but totally worth it!
Out side seating in parking lane was cold and noisy. The worst part, however, was the lack of service. Terrible getting seated, empty water and drink glasses, extremely long wait times between courses and over ten minutes to pay by card. This is true even as we order all courses at first encounter. Unlikely that I would return. Food was good, but so what.
Michele was so fantastic. We hadn’t been to B&G in over a year and she welcomed us back! She made great recommendations and really made our visit even more memorable than a normal trip to B&G, which is always excellent. The new outdoor seating was delightful.
Food was amazing! They seem disorganized yet somehow they pull it together with their process. I absolutely loved it- people were great and food was incredible.
Suoer nice date night spot
Best oysters and fried clams we’ve had. The clam chowder is also amazing. Without a doubt one of the best seafood restaurants in Boston. Our service wasn’t as great as expected based on reviews and the lobster roll was a little small for the price, but overall awesome experience.
Oyster Happy Hour was great. Fish sticks and halibut were a must. So delicious. Will definitely be back soon.
This was an amazing experience! I took my parents and best friend here for Easter lunch and accidentally booked our table for indoors but we wanted outdoors. The staff was so accommodating and were able to seat us outdoors as soon as they could. Everything was perfect from the wine to the food and the service was amazing! This was the first time we had all been together in over a year and it really was a memorable experience. Thank you!
This was our first meal indoors since being vaccinated. What a wonderful experience. From the moment we walked in and were greeted we felt like we picked the right place. The service was the perfect combination of being attentive and friendly while also being personable. The food was consistently fresh. We loved the clam chowder, the littlenecks and the fried oysters were a surprise hit. For entrees the fish is always fresh. The halibut was a bit more simple than the description promised, but very fresh and well prepared. The baked stuffed lobster was perfectly prepared and easy to get out of the shell. And... as always, the oysters were delicious. Save room for the chocolate mousse. It is worth it!
Staff was very accommodating and food was amazing. Thank you
The Prudential Shellfish Tower was absolutely delicious!
Brent was our waiter and he was wonderful.... courteous, efficient with a lovely, happy smile!
Top notch as always. Best fried oysters in the city, and they always have the freshest crab!
Great spot. Love the food and service
I don’t usually write reviews but.....B&G Oysters was exceptional & NEVER disappoints.
1. The service is excellent from the time you enter to the time you leave. Everyone, on every level, contributed to our great experience.
Shout out to Nick R: my husband & I have had the pleasure of being seated in his section several times. Nick is knowledgeable & always has great recommendations in both food & wine. He is courteous & professional....And quick to anticipate our needs before being asked .
2. The food is phenomenal - tonight we had oysters - we requested small & sweet & that’s what we received. Wellfleet is our fave. Then moved on to fried calamari which was excellent.
Next up: tuna tartare special- PHENOMENAL.
On to the: Mushroom Carpaccio Salad - with shaved Parmesan... amazing & wonderful.
And ended with the chocolate mousse with olive oil, sea salt &... well I’m not even sure what went into this dessert but it was fantastic.
SO...in summary: this pandemic has been crushing to some businesses due to the regulations... but through it all B&G has never sacrificed the quality of food or service. WE WILL RETURN to support them & you should to!
Great place to eat outside
Best Oysters I have ever had and I have had Oysters a lot of places.
The oysters is definitely the top of Bos.Its a perfect occasion to sit outside if u wanna have a date.I just wish they could have more dishes to choose on the menu.
With all that’s going on, they made you feel a sense of norm. The food is always amazing and the service is phenomenal.
Best oysters in town, first time experiencing caviar, loved all of it
Had a great time. Ambiance was great. It was cold out 26F and yet warm enough with the heaters going. Service was expected and food was top notch even being served outside. Will return again for sure and make sure you book in advance
Another wonderful meal at B&G. The oysters are amazing and feel very comfortable eating inside due to the plexiglass between booths.
B&G has the freshest and most delicious seafood, served in the perfect environment. The wait staff goes above and beyond to be sure you are comfortable and enjoying your dining experience. The food is melt in your mouth delicious, and they have great wine and cocktail pairings.
So sad—we used to love this place but the food was extremely disappointing this time. Tasted pre-made, lots of inconsistent temperatures. Great service though. Hope they find a way to return to past greatness.
Lovely experience with exquisite oysters and an amazing seafood stew. The staff was courteous and knowledgeable and even allowed us to finish our glass of wine tucked in a corner after we had to vacate our table.
Much to our surprise December 11th was warm enough to eat outside! The crab cakes over collards were super de- licious! Most novel December birthday ever. But then again it was during 2020 and COVID! I’m glad to be 70 and kickin’ it! We will return!
What a great recommendation! The oysters were out of this world! The chowder, the lobster roll, and don't forget the wine. The staff was friendly. Perfect evening!
Great food quality, it was a memorable experience, us 4 all left still hungry after a 188 dollar bill.
The wine selection and quality of good and service are paralleled only by their attention to the safety of their diners.
The freshest seafood, amazing spot, local spot for sure as well. Best oysters and lobster rolls ever
