We have enjoyed several dinners at the Blue Ox and it is always a treat. The food is prepared so well! The salmon dish with the risotto is excellent!

The restaurant is a jewel in the city of Lynn, Ma. From the staff to their menu every single item is to die for. The Chicken wings ( appetizer),Ribeye with the bone in will melt in your mouth.!!!!
