Oldest running restaurant in America. A must when in Boston
You can sit downstairs if you're just looking for bar service (oysters, chowder, beer) and skip some of the line.
👌🏻lobster ravioli was ok
Clam chowder and corn bread is a must! Darn good.
Amazing clam chowder. Just getting a cup is too small!
The Unions Favorite is expensive and the crab cakes are mini.
Don't make a reservation, go early and sit at the bar! Order chowder and oysters!
Try the Sam Adams Colonial beer which is brewed solely for this restaurant and not sold anywhere else.
If the wait is too long just have a seat at the bar and have dinner. The bartenders were fun to speak with and had a lot of great suggestions.
I highly recommend fried oyster & clam.
Only place you can get Sam Adams Colonial.
The corn bread and broiled scallops!
One of the oldest pubs
Friendly and non-rushed service. Food was fresh, simple and tasty.
The latest lobster, the oysters and the shrimp were so delicious! The oldest restaurant in America and also one of the best in Boston.
Incredible clam chowder!
It's worth it for the history! The chowda is great!
Oysters oysters and oysters. Delicious!
Expensive but really good food.
Good chowder. Oysters are ok, but I would pass. Fried seafood platter was just ok too.
The oldest restaurant in USA is also the best way to be introduced to the traditional New England cuisine. Must go!
Great service, food and drinks are good
Loved it. Sit at the oyster bar. the oyster shucking guy was a delight. Even showed us a trained lobster! Definitely have the amazing oysters and clam chowder. We got complimentary corn bread too :)
Disappointing food. Overpriced. We wasted a whole evening on this place.
Get the Sam Adams Union Oyster House Colonial Ale. It's the only place in the country that has it!
Everything including the amazing ambience
We really enjoyed this pub as the longest continuously operating eatery in the US. Oysters were fresh and chilled to perfection!! Sam Adams Lager (crafted for Union Oyster House) was refreshing!
Thank you Jim after send the wrong plate ,send the correct one and accept that was your mistake and because of this do not charge the second beer and play Tarkan two times.
Oysters and chowder are great. Sit at the raw bar and let the staff educate you about Boston!
The corn bread and chowder are dangerously delicious. Don't fill up and miss out on the amazing entrées.
Oldest restaurant in the United States! Delicious chowder and a fun place for history buffs
Tom says is cool and along Freedom Trail
Lobster of course :-)
Lazy man lobstar
Clam chowder and lobster ravioli was amazing!
They may not have the best seafood but you come here for the experience. And when you do that, make sure to have a reservation. Otherwise wait could be long.
Oldest continuously operating restaurant in the US. There was a bit of a wait (understandably) to be seated. Food was delicious (be sure to try the corn bread!) Service was friendly.
Chowder is fantastic as is the corn bread that comes with every meal. It's also the birthplace of the toothpick
The oldest restaurant in the USA. I had eaten oyster there but I do not like it.
Awesome New England Clam Chowder!
The Chowder, the Cornbread. Calamari was delicious. Decent beer selection.
Food was pretty good. Chowder was good, scallops were tasty but only 4 half dollar size for the meal is a bit light for the price.
Very casual great historical significance
Historic and interesting... Food wasn't that great.
