This place doesn’t open until 11:30, but if you arrive at the door by 10:30, you’ll likely get a seat. Totally worth the wait!!! Warm lobster will is amazing! Fish and chips are also excellent.

A nice Oyster Bar with good seafood and great selection of wines. Still, a bit overhyped with groups of tourists all over. Go there in the afternoon to avoid a way too crowded atmosphere.

Not consider nice wine selection, Clam showder, Fresh oyster selection form around the bay! A must for Boston visit.

Excellent food and service at the bar. Wait time can be long, even if you are a party of one, but it was worth it. Seafood can't get any fresher. Great selection of oysters and clams and the lobster roll hot with butter is fantastic....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

Sure, like I can really help. Did you order any Oysters, if yes what kind? Did you order a lobster roll, then with or without butter and hot or cold? Did your server have a tatoo, if yes was it fresh or an older one. Finally... More

Go early, like 4, to get on their list, then wander the North End which is fun and you will eventually be called and likely make dinner 'tween 5 - 6. It is worth the wait for sure.
