    I come from a coastal area of the country and have enjoyed good seafood all my life. It is a pleasure to have a source of such fine food here in the heart of America. I especially enjoy the fresh oysters.

    We really enjoy Mass Street Fish House, especially during happy hour. Happy hour has great food options - Ahi Tuna Nachos, Mussels and Frittes, Fresh shucked oysters and cava - a good prices. The service is always attentive and courteous. The atmosphere is pleasant and the noise level lets you carry on a conversation with your friends.

    Ate outdoors , amazing ambience.. cocktails were solid, crab cakes are best around. I’m not a huge seafood fan, so I had the ribeye . I’d prefer a smaller cut, a filet option or strip. But I get it .. Seafood place. Service was good, price point in line with other higher end dining spots in the same vicinity.

    Really enjoyed the salmon. The outside was wonderfully crispy while the inside was perfectly tender. The old fashioned was done well and not too sweet. The turkish olive oil cake was very unique and very good.

    We enjoy food very much and when we found this place online we thought it was going to be good. Unfortunately it was not to our liking. For it being a fish place none of the seafood was fresh, all was definitely frozen before. We expected better quality for how expensive this place was. If you are a person who enjoys food especially good quality food this would not be a place for you.

    Food and service was amazing, as usual. The hosts and servers and bartenders are always very nice and friendly, which is much appreciated. Plus, the food and drinks are so creative with their flavors and subtle pairings of spices and herbs - their menu items are delicious. I love how they uniquely incorporate and prepare the vegetables into some of their dishes. We continue to be repeat customers!

    The Mass Street Fish House is one of the best restaurant experiences in Lawrence. It’s hard to believe that seafood could be so fresh and well-prepared so far from the coasts. The service and vibe are also outstanding. Friendly, caring staff in a comfortable setting, both indoors and on the large patio.

    I booked for four and we ended up with an extra guest. The hostess was extremely polite about the issue. Understanding the problem was on my end, we anticipated wait past the reservation time. Even though the restaurant was busy and full, staff made accommodations to seat all of our guest and on time. Food and drinks were fabulous, everything was good, and we had a great time with friends.

    We were lucky to get a last-hour reservation on Valentine's Day. It was outside seating which was fine with us. I ordered the fresh oysters on their "Happy Hour" menu. We also both had a fish entre and they were delicious. I had Cod. She had Salmon. They had heaters to keep us warm but could have used one more plexiglass panel to block us from the wind. My only critique was that they did not have tablecloths (like the restaurant next to them did) on the old tables they used.
