    Best of Boston 2016: Lobster Roll 🐚 :: A simple toasted split-top roll, generous portions of claw and knuckle meat, and a light, unobtrusive herb mayo that lets the freshly caught lobster shine.

    Although it's a bit on the smaller side, there's a reason people keep ordering these warm lobster rolls and there's a long line at lunch. Super tasty!

    Very casual, but it's worth the wait for a lobster roll and a lobster bisque.

    Lobster mac and cheese was tasty. Not skimpy on the meat, macaroni soft, not al dente, needed a bit more seasoning. But I ate every drop. $14

    The lobster club is a great alternative to the lobster roll. Good and tasty. A little inconvenient if you don't have a car but its worth getting there!

    An institution on the South Boston Waterfront, their lobster roll is solid although a tad over priced for the amount of lobster you really do get.

    Great food at not great prices. The lobster roll, fried clams and scallops are very good, but clams were heavy on the fries. $40+ for twin lobsters is exorbitant. They're $5/lb at market basket.

    Get the lobster roll - it's worth it. Piled with lobster and no discernable filling. If you want a club, you can't go wrong with the lobster club. Bacon was perfectly crunchy.

    With a scattering of seasoned panko breadcrumbs topping it off, this mega-rich mac "puts a shadow over all other mac and cheeses" and is well worth a road trip any time of year. Read more

    If you're going to charge $18 for a lobster roll, the amount of meat should be larger than a hotdog. Just saying...

    Don't come here with more than 4 people. It screws up getting a table for everyone.

    Get there early if you want to eat on Sunday. We were turned away 15min before closing because they ran out of food. I mean they're located on the water. WTF?

    Try the lobster roll - First lobster roll, don't see how it could get better
  • Justin S.

    Been here 10+ times
    $5 16oz draft beers of things like Sam seasonal and UFO in a place like Boston next to a major concert venue that charges like $12 for a 12oz beer. If your seeing a show at the pavilion go hear first.

    I'm from New York City and thought the name of this restaurant was pretty ironic due to it being in Boston. Lobster roll and clam chowder was awesome and so was the service. Great staff, good food!

    i'm just going to go ahead and say it.. if you don't get the lobster roll, lobster bisque, and the fried clams, you should be thrown into the sea.

    Great no-frills seafood spot on the Boston Waterfront. If you're looking to bring home some lobsters or fresh fillets, walk around the side of the building to place an order.

    Safe to say Yankee knows a thing or two about lobster rolls. Traditional and simply all about the meat. Fresh lobster is bound by they tiniest amount of mayo and piled into a lightly toasted split-top

    Lobster ve jumbo karides ızgara ve somon ızgara lezzetliydi. Kasada sipariş verip yerinize oturuyorsunuz, kalabalık olduğu için yanlış sipariş geliyor. Fiyat yüksek biraz.
