they serve the best sea food assortments among the three joints that i've tasted (the other is No Name Restaurant and Philipp's Oyster House). They have 3 separate branches across Boston and a Legal Test Kitchen at Logan International Airport. The one i tried is located along the Long Wharf Area in State Street. they have a main dining area and a separate bar area and this place can really get full during lunch and dinner time so that reservations are in order. Being one of the most Popular Seafood Resto in Boston, they have an extensive selection of famous Boston Seafoods like Lobsters, Oysters, steamers (mussels and clams), scrod, haddock, cod, halibut, big scallops, squids and a lot more.
