    Worth your attention. Nice views, salty breeze, and kind staff all add to the experience. Can't go wrong with a lobster bake (next time, I'll get a bigger one). Calamari rocks.

    Love water side views? Love looking at yachts parked along the side? Love great, unique seafood? This is the place! I loved it. Great open atmosphere and outdoor seating. Went here at nighttime 👌🏼🌙

    My party got the specials for the day and everyone was happy. The raw shellfish platter is pretty good, though the crab is frozen, and vegetarian options aren't bad either (few though they are ha).

    This restaurant has three floors—and three dining options—to choose from. The 1st floor is a typical Legal’s, with an outdoor deck; the 2nd is fine dining while the 3rd floor serves cocktails Read more

    Wanted to try a stuffie, but it's only served with a hot dog. So, I had a lobster roll instead without cold slaw and fries. Sometimes, you just want the roll.

    If you eat on the first floor, be sure to enjoy the view from the large elliptical bar where both wine and local beers are on tap. Or, request a patio seat, along Boston's beautiful HarborWalk.

    The bar on the first floor has the best service and a gorgeous ocean view. The fried clam bellies are insanely delicious.

    Located just across the harbor from the airport. Perfect spot to grab a last clam chawda bowl before flying out.

    I liked the place, fish was fresh and properly grilled (as in without fat and tender). Fries was nearly perfect.

    Affordable wine list, friendly service, oysters and a beautiful view of the harbor. Great spot for a night out.

    Enjoyable atmosphere in an up-and -coming area of the city. Highly recommend the crab salad. Turkey burger was very good as well.

    We got the best seat in the place on a beautiful summer day. The staff were great and the food, as usual, delicious.

    Ask for the XL oysters! And make sure you have a view of the harbor - that should be the main goal!

    Get the swordfish salad! Swordfish is perfect. Served next to a light cucumber salad with fennel and chick peas. Awesome.

    I did not realize that coming here was akin to visiting re White House. Stare at and scan my license, stamp my hand with a black light stamp downstairs, then another hand check upstairs? Dude I'm 33..
