Delicious warm lobster roll and some of the best onion rings I have ever had. Very clean, good social distance at outside seating.

Our favorite pandemic lunch spot! So clean and safe, food fresh and delicious. We liked it pre-pandemic too, but it has been a bright spot in our rotation during these trying times.

One of the best lobster rolls we have had. Good wine and beer list. They also offer a great roast beef sandwich.

Went here for lunch today with my son. First time dining, discovered it by chance on Open Table. This is truly a hidden gem. Food was fresh and delicious. I had the fish tacos and my son had the roast beef sandwich. Prices are very reasonable tStaff are wonderful and friendly.
I will definitely return again for lunch. I am interested in their cocktails and evening dining too.
Please help these great hidden gems survive. They have only been open 3 years and I have only discovered it now. You won’t regret eating at this great place.

Cusser's has 4 tables on the sidewalk for outdoor dining so we took advantage of it Saturday night. Had the smoked swordfish deviled egg appetizer which was excellent. Got the hot lobster roll for my main course and I can now understand why it was just named Best of Boston this year!! Husband had fish tacos which were perfectly balanced. Great wines by the glass!! Highly recommend Cusser's!!!!

Phenomenal cocktail list and delicious food. We got oysters, swordfish souvlaki, fish tacos and ended with a couple lobster rolls. Really fantastic experience - the outdoor dining after the sunset is beautiful!

We went for lunch on a weekend. Due to the global health pandemic, there was only outside seating, but it is very nicely shaded. We've had the roast beef before, which is amazing (80T for the win!) and wanted to try something new. We split two donuts, then ordered the cold lobster roll and chicken sandwiches. Both were fantastic. The lobster roll with light mayo was perfect for such a muggy day. Cusser's puts their own spin on the classic New England lobster roll with tarragon mayo, and it was delicious. My friends also enjoyed the chicken sandwich, which is unique in its own right due to the brine/smoke process that it is prepared with.

The service was also excellent. Our water glasses were well attended to, which as especially important on such a hot day. The dishes were also served on nicely toasty plates, and I have no idea how the servers carry these plates from the kitchen all the way to the outside seating area, but they do. Hands of champions! Lucky for us, the plates kept our food nice and warm. We will be back again in no time!
