    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

    2015 Best Fried Clams: "… plump, tender, and fried to crispy excellence. All they need is a squeeze of lemon and a dab of tartar sauce, if you please."

    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...
