    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.

    Fun atmosphere. Seat yourself and order from the counter. Everything seemed pricey and lobster Mac and cheese was oddly spicy with a crunch to it. Maybe the fried lobster roll would have been better?

    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!

    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

    This is a nice pit spot in between breweries or before. It had fresh seafood inside and outside dining. Fast service and great prices. Parking also. Simple menu that gets you in and out.

    Hot Butter’d Lobsta Roll is the way to go. Cool spot with good service and delicious food. My first time eating here and I’ll be back.

    So impressed by this restaurant. Quick ordering and table service. Seats were limited but cozy. Awesome lobster roll and lobster mac -n-cheese. Can't state how pleased I was overall.

    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.

    One of the best out-of-the-way seafood restaurants in Boston. Food is prepared with the love of homemade meals. Great prices too.

    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!

    Pricey, but delicious lobster rolls and lobster bisque. Hit up Harpoon brewery after you eat!

    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.

    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.

    Prices are a little out the for the comfort style atmosphere but the fried lobster roll is kick ass good. Great that the Harpone beer hall is right next door

    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    Totally worth it for the lobster! Excellent service too. Sit outside and indulge in some people watching while you're at it.

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

    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.

    Fish sandwich. Tuna tacos were OK, lots of tuna, but garnished only with a bit of lettuce and pickled cabbage

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