    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

    Crab cakes are amazing.

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

    $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.

    To this new yorker this seems like raw gritty Boston at its best - two huge lobster claws up!

    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.

    #1 spOt for Lobsters 5lbs+, GreAt for brinGing to fam. fuNctions! Good FreSh-YanKee-by the Wharf experience. Although, seafOOd plates are overpriced for serving siZe. Worth the try =)

    Definitely a great place to get lobster in Boston.I always pick up lobster here when family and friends are in town and the prices always seem to be good.

    Use the malt vinegar and/or Old Bay seasoning to add some extra flavor to your French fries.

    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.

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

    The service is awful. 25 mins for a sandwich. Only come here if you have about an hour to kill

    Lobster rolls are great but you can save a few bucks and get 90% of the enjoyment with a crab roll!

    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?

    if you're at the convention center make the walk over here, clam chowder was the best I've had and the lobster club sandwich was good too.

    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!
