We walked here through the child because we had read good reviews and also had a personal recommendation from a waitress in another restaurant. The lobster roll was not cheap but hot and buttery style was excellent, not messed with food. The restaurant is small...More

If you're only in Boston for 24 hours - this must be one of your stops. I'd recommend going for an early lunch (11:30am) or commit to waiting for 2-3 hours for a dinner table. It's worth every second when you enjoy a warm lobster...More

Be prepared to wait, but it's worth it. This is a very small seafood restaurant. It seats maybe 30 people total. And it's very popular for a reason. We had to wait an hour. But they took our number and told us they would call...More

Came here with 1 hour wait. Definitely worth it. They have the best Clam chowder and Best Lobster Roll!

Had 1/2 dozen briny/buttery/nutty MA oysters, fantastic lobster roll and a creamy but not heavy fresh clam chowder. So glad I went. And that I went at 3pm on a bitterly cold Weds because I was immediately seated at the bar - with a great...More

Dined here with a business colleague during a conference weekend. Since this very small restaurant does not take reservations, I was glad that it was just the two of us because it was almost constantly packed. We arrived at 530pm on a Sunday evening and...More

Thats right. Lobster. Roll. The fried clams were good too. A bit of a wait but well worth the time. Salem street is a nice walk, and they will call you on your cell when your table is ready. Oh, and did I mention the...More

We arrived to be told that there was an hour wait so we went off and came back later. We both had a clam chowder and then I had lobster spaghetti with truffles. The food was very good though we may have misjudged how filling...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
