Great place to have seafood at a descent price and see the heritage of a resturant so old. Food and service was awesome and so were the dishes. Desserts were also good.

There are not many restaurants serve Fish Chower and Union Oyster House offers Fish Chower, except prefer to be less salty, the chower is very fresh. We also ordered special if the day that served sole fish that day, excellent. The Sautéed Shimp and Scallops over rice was delicious.

In the freedom train you come across this old place on Union street opposite the Bell in hand pub.
The menu is slightly more pricey however you get good oysters and seafood which is what Boston is known for.
It’s good for lunch or dinner and not dressy so feel free to wear comfortable clothing.

We really enjoyed being seated in the tiny benches and tasted our oysters, chowder, lobster roll and fish sandwich!. Good service. Kids loved the place and adults too.
