The service was great - everyone was helpful and friendly and very attentive. Our food was excellent. The ahi nachos were delicious and the salmon reuben was sooo good. We had the chai pumpkin creme dessert and if I could have I would have eaten another one.

The duck confit with spinach gnocchi was absolutely superb!

While the food cost was competitive, however, there needs to be a house wine priced comparably to other similar Lawrence restaurants.

First time and we were very impressed. The ambience was great, not super quite, but still able to hold conversations at the table. Food was very good and really great price. Our service was terrific, attentive and personable. Definitely will be back.

Service was friendly, thoughtful, and prompt. The food was absolutely delicious and paired well with our wine. The clam chowder really hit the spot on a very cold day. The creative take on cauliflower was unique as well as tasty and the swordfish bolognese was the star of the dinner. We love saving Mass St Fish House for our special date nights.

Fun spot for Happy Hour. We had a good server, nice $5 Rose, and excellent mussles and fries. Especially early the venue was really quiet and good for conversation. Will go back to rey the Ahi tuna nachos.

We decided to give this place a second chance after a bad experience in November, but we were disappointed again. Used to love it here, but the last two times, the food has been really off. Our mussels & fries were cold, our cauliflower appetizer was lukewarm, the crab cakes weren’t seasoned very well and even the pickled veggies on the side didn’t taste right. I’m afraid the pandemic has caused a drop in quality. It feels like food isn’t freshly prepared.

I was wanting to eat here since my birthday in 2020, but the pandemic happened. Finally got to eat here on Christmas Eve of 2021 and it was worth the wait. The oysters were velvety and flavorful, and my spouse enjoyed his first time eating them the way they were served in this fine resto. The squid ink uni pasta I had and the savory clam fettuccine he got were amazingly delicious and deceptively filling, since the serving sizes for both were smaller than the local standard. We are still dreaming about our desserts, and we got our money's worth from the sparkling rose we ordered at the end of the meal. Our server, whose name I wish I remembered, made such great suggestions throughout which made our night so much more enjoyable.

All around great experience for Christmas Eve dinner. Being an east coast family it was great to find seafood that tasted like home.
Also pleased not to see catfish on the menu.
Service was excellent all the staff were attentive and friendly.
Desert we had Turkish olive oil cake with mojito ice cream. Both were outstanding.
I recommend this restaurant to anyone who truly loves seafood and in Lawrence area.

This was our first time eating at Mass. St. Fish House, we chose it for our anniversary due to the great outdoor dining space. The atmosphere was great, and service was good (if a little slow). We were really underwhelmed with the portion and presentation of the food. The shrimp and lobster tail tasted excellent, the crab legs were pretty "meh" and not at all substantial. The meal offered no sides for any of the entrees. We all left still hungry - it felt more like we had eaten appetizers rather than a meal (and none of us are big eaters, it was just pretty sparse). For this reason, I probably won't return.

Fully uncooperative at the front desk. Was not that busy. Many times in the service industry “listening is the key” attribute to successful customer service.

Not a skill set of the guy seating customers.

My wife and I went at 8pm for a late dinner. We ordered two appetizers we shared, soup, and a drink. I had been excited to order oysters, but at $4 each (before tax and tip) I couldn’t bring myself to order any. We were seated downstairs, which felt very intimate and private but they unfortunately seated several large groups near us and it was very loud. We were unable to Carry on a conversation across the table.

Both appetizers were quite good but the drinks we ordered were very disappointing. The flavor was actually OK but they were served with so much ice that it was very difficult to sip on. It basically tasted like a whiskey flavored Icee from the gas station. Very disappointing to have spent that much on a drink and not be able to taste it. I dug the olive with a spoon and filled my soup bowl with the ice…that was not big enough!

The service was great but we were wanting to get out of there quickly because of the noise. The total was $80 after tip which seemed like a lot given that we didn’t even order an entree. All in all we are unlikely to come back.

I have had delicious meals here before, but this was definitely an off night. Our main dishes came out within seconds of ordering, burning hot. Definitely felt microwaved and nothing seemed freshly prepared.

Very pretty restaurant
The menu was difficult
Just one actual FISH dish(salmon)
The others were seafood dishes
i.e. clams and pasta, shrimp dishes,
Fish and chips
So no grilled fish at all
Salmon was over cooked twice
And returned but the server was very apologetic and it was really too
Late to substitute another dish
Bread was excellent
Oysters were fine
The rest of our party were o k with their food, but nothing was GREAT
except the tuna taco appetizer
Disappointing as many people claimed
that this was the best restaurant in Lawrence.
