All the food was very good but what really made this a good experience was the staff. The place was slammed when I was there. Both the hostess and my waitress were being pulled in different directions but any time they interacted with me, they...More

The restaurant is REALLY small, and I can understand why they don't take reservations---they can keep all seats full by managing their wait list. They manage it well, calling you when they expect to be ready to seat you in 10 minutes. Despite the busy...More

Fantastic oyster bar in the Italian Quarter. Great food, good beer and wine.The place gets crowded - but that's no surprise since the food is simply delicious. We didn't try the raw sea urchins - but they went like cold lemonade on a hot summer's...More

Quaint, small but vibrant place. Best hot lobster roll with warm butter and fries! Oysters were terrific, too. A must to visit in Boston

Lobster roll and the burger with oyster are quite good. The side handmade fries are not bad as well. The marine lobster salad is quite worthy of the price, a lot of lobster is in. Lobster tacos were in menu for Sunday, the sauce on...More

This is a lovely restaurant in the North End. We went simply to have some oysters, but also had the lobster roll. It was well worth the wait for the food. We did not expect to get a table without reservations but we were seated...More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

the restaurant does not take phone reservations, so you have to show up and put your name down. The wait can be very long - 3 hours and 20 minutes when we went. Tables are not well spaced, so the place is crowded and can be... More
