We’re Row 34. If we could eat oysters and drink beer for every meal period, we probably would. Professionals Only.

Our menu changes daily. Visit our website to take a look at our most up to date menus.

Row 34 serves up a seafood-heavy menu in an industrial-inspired setting. Chef/Owner Jeremy Sewall's menu offers fish entrees and an extensive oyster selection, along with craft beers and an eclectic wine list. Classic comfort food side dishes round out the menu.

Due to recent mandates, Boston requires all guests to wear a mask indoors.

A modern take on an industrial style seafood wharf. Good food, good ambiance. The vibe is young and hip, not stuffy or upscale.

Love. Always. Oysters. Wine. Everything. And to our surprise: the French fries were the best my partner has ever had. So, again, everything.

Row 34 came highly recommended.....We arrived early and wanted to sit at the bar for drinks before dinner. The bartender was extremely rude to us. Couldn't be bothered with us. When we ordered a bottle of wine he suddenly was a bit nicer. We should have left at that point. Dinner was average in flavors. Nothing to write home about. Our waitress and was perfectly fine. The hostesses and host are very nice!

Just okay. Limited bar menu. Service was extremely slow and food was decent. Extremely loud and knowing we were celebrating my birthday they put us next to the front door. So if you live in Boston and have nothing else better then sure wander on over otherwise I would skip it

What a terrible experience. Waited almost a half hour for our table even though we were told multiple times it would only be a few minutes. They don’t have a full bar so wish I knew that, they ran out of 2 different entrees, the fish and chips had so much batter on it that it wasn’t pleasant, the lobster roll was more like lobster salad for 38$, the music was not good, felt like a teenager was selecting it. What a waste of money, will never return

Sunday Brunch near Boston’s Seaport. Food was totally perfect, I had tuna tatare and fish and chips. Beautiful fish-cod- and fries crisp and completely not greasy. Hubby had clams and deviled eggs. And mimosa!

In Boston for a meeting, picked Row 34 for its proximity to our hotel. How fortunate!!! The restaurant is still set up fairly COVID-19 conscious; tables could be packed closer together than they are. Made us more comfortable. Service was spot on. Our server was very informative and helpful, as we had no knowledge of the different oysters. Can’t say enough about the food. Best lobster rolls. And those 242 fries!!!! Oysters were so good we had more for dessert!

The seafood food at this restaurant is very good.
Service is speedy. Friendly staff.
No liquor license for hard liquor and the wine list is unrecognizable and could be greatly improved by offering wines from producers that diners have heard of.

The food menu seems to have changed a lot - There seems to be minimal number of fish entrees (only salmon entree when I visited). This wasn't the case when I visited a few years ago.

Great dinner. Had a very good wine recommendation, as well as assistance choosing a variety of raw bar snacks (for those of us with little oyster knowledge). We also were surprised and delighted by the cookie they brought out to help celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday.

I used to live in Boston. My friends were in town for the BC/Mizzou game. It’s my friends’ first time in Boston, and Row 34 did not disappoint. Both the food and service was absolutely amazing. One of my friends was so impressed with the very specific, detailed knowledge of all the different oysters on the menu. Thanks for an amazing experience!

Sat at the bar. Great service. Had the chowder to start it was excellent! We had the warm buttered lobster roll. Excellent! Also tried the fish tacos, not so good. They used small fried, dry, haddock. Odd. They should use a much better fish quality. We are in Boston! Lots of better fish choices I would think.

Hostess was less than professional. We arrived at 4:30 PM and told to come back at 5 PM when they open to seat people. We returned right at 5 PM to discover guests seated at 5 tables already.

I had the best experience for a friends birthday! Everything tasted amazing and the hostess and the server both wished my friend a happy birthday. Peter if you’re reading this you’re amazing and you made our night!

The food was great too, top notch seafood and I highly recommend the ceviche.

This was my second time at Row 34 and it was excellent! The lobster roll with butter was grilled to perfection, large amount of lobster, delicious flavor and texture. The coleslaw was also exceptional! The soba noodles with shrimp was interesting in flavors, heat and a variety of fresh vegetables. The salmon was prepared to perfection, light, clean, flavorful.....we loved the cornbread! That is super yummy!
Service was good, cocktails were good, ambiance was industrial and sparse but appealing, ample room from other tables overall loved it! Will recommend and will go back again!
