Was surprised to find that they had reopened and was not disappointed. The whole belly clams are worth driving 500 miles. This is a New England Seafood eatery with both inside and outside dining. Right on the shore of Tampa Bay. It is small and was probably a former ice cream stand for the long walking/fishing pier which is directly... More

Bad news beats....this place is bad. Looking for something good to say. The weather is nice? Maybe they are having a bad day. Won't be back.

It's rare to find very good food in small spaces like the one occupied by Taste of Boston. But, TOB pulls it off! The fish tacos are nicely seasoned and grilled. The mahi sandwich (I ordered mine fried) offered a generous portion on a fresh Kaiser roll. And my 12 year-old daughter--whose picky palate is not easy to satisfy--raved about... More

My Husband and I came to walk in the park and on the Pier. We decided to share a Basket 1/2 Shrimp and 1/2 Scallops. You pick two sides. They don't serve Alcohol or we would have each ordered a glass of wine. We have eaten here in the past twice. We have never had a bad experience. Good always... More

Fish and chips are great. Fresh cut fries would have been better. Frozen fries served didn't compliment the fish too well. Kalamari was great. The Cuban was great too. Shrimp and corn soup had great flavor but was mostly broth, a little disappointed there. Clam chowder was tasty, had good body. Loved the simple ordering and dining process. Everything served...

Awesome view of the bay and downtown Tampa with delish food options. I had the Taco Trio which was truly amazing. Will visit again when I'm in the area

Service was excellent. There is indoor and outdoor seating. Outdoor has a great view of Tampa and Tampa Bay. Food was mediocre fried seafood. I had the grilled grouper which was supposed to be fresh but didn't taste like it. Anything fried tastes good right? There are many other better seafood places. If you are in the park and want...

No matter when I visit, the food is always fresh and delicious. This time around I ordered the crab cakes. They were perfectly prepared and seasoned just right and definitely satisfied my appetite. Sitting outside with the gentle breeze blowing in from the bay, the scenic view of the pier, and the birds perched on the rocks sets the atmosphere... More

I just went during the evening with the fam to go to the small bridge and park this location offers. The ice cream was really good and it looked like the food was also good. The bridge is open for the public at no charge and you can fish there too. I think that the location is perfect for BBQ... More

Great friendly service from all the servers. They worked as a team and constantly there to refill drinks etc... I had steamed clams and buffalo shrimp and they were both great. Large delicious portions which wasn't what I had expected. It is on the dock so you can sit inside or out and watch the boats. We went to the... More
