You must go!
This spot was great for date night. We were not seated at 9:00 per our reservation and the bar was so crowded we could not order a drink. A little annoying but, would go again.
The Blue Ox must be the only restaurant in Lynn, as it was packed to the rafters Saturday night, with a very loud crowd. They do not have much of a decor (very casual) but the food was truly delicious. We had the grilled pork tenderloin, rigatoni bolognese and a steak - all were great. I would have enjoyed it more if the lighting and atmosphere were better - but food is excellent, and our server was very good as well.
Blue Ox is always a great experience from the front of the house, to our service, to our amazing dishes. Love any time I get to visit Blue Ox! Always a dining experience I look forward to

Highly recommend, Quality of the food was excellent service was excellent overall great experience.
The Blue Ox is a hidden treasure in Lynn and a must try ! The menu is small but unique and so delicious ! We had the baked Brie .. pear salad and half chicken with mashed .. one bite better than the last ! You won't be disappointed !
Never been disappointed! Aside from running out of their amazing burgers, which I appreciate as they keep a limited amount on hand because they are really fresh, it was perfect!!!
As always, wait staff was friendly and attentive. Beer selection is awesome...and love the local brews. The French fries are always just right. However, it would be quite something to have a few more vegetarian and/or vegan options.
Another spectacular experience at the Ox!
Restaurant was quiet...given that fact, felt as though kitchen was rushing our orders. Appetizers were still being consumed when waiter brought out entrees. Three courses and we were in & out in an hour—-not exactly the night out that we planned. Service was just mediocre given the fact that once again, it was quiet. Not the usual experience this time! 😞
Best filet mignon dinner you will find anywhere! Unbelievable quality in everything they serve and the best part is the casual ,unpretentious atmosphere!! You cannot get better than the OX!
Food was great. The service was so slow that we had to leave before we could order dessert. We had a 6:30 reservation which should have been plenty of time for appetizer, dinner and dessert, but by 9pm they hadn't even given us the dessert menus and we had a babysitter to get back to. I waited over 25 mins for a glass of wine and there was at least 30 minute wait between appetizer and entree. I don't mind a leisurely dinner, but this was excessively slow.
The Ox is so consistently good, it is the benchmark for any other restaurant. And most others fail to measure up. Creative cuisine. Great staff. Nice big drinks. Incredible flavors. We always feel so welcomed and special here. Nothing worse than a restaurant that acts like they are doing YOU a favor by letting you eat there. A very special place
Front of the house was somewhat disorganized when we arrived for a 5 o'clock reservation
Once again, a great experience. Meal and service both A+.
Always amazing, creative food. Great drinks - generous pours - and the best staff of any restaurant around - including Boston. Never disappoints.
We had an utterly wonderful evening at the Blue Ox. Everything about the evening was a delight - the food, the wine, the service, the ambiance. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys food and a good time.
Amazing food. Service was not as I anticipated .. it was good but they seemed preoccupied
The food is creative and fresh! Our server was helpful and knowledgeable, we had a member with food allergies and she was helpful in getting the meal. A wonderful place for a special dinner.
