Our Review

Much like Albany Park's the Fish Guy, this retail outlet of a long-standing wholesale operation fronted by native Bostonians is a model for what every neighborhood once had and should once again: a dedicated fishmonger. The added benefit of BYO table seating and hot, made-to-order deep-fried, grilled, pan-seared, and broiled seafood items is just extra tartar sauce. But still, the people here know how to work a fryer: the exterior of the deep-fried haddock lightly but crisply armors the moist flaky fish, though accompanying frozen, battered fries are less thrilling. The lobster roll is of the minimally dressed variety—no mayo, no drawn butter—and though the meat is sweet and chunky, it's served far too cold on room-temperature toasted bread. Chowders, bisques, stuffed clams, grilled swordfish, seared scallops, whole boiled lobsters, and "fried boxes" round things out, while netting and a decommissioned lobster trap provide the obligatory nautical ambience. Unfortunately, employees won't shuck oysters, but you can buy your own knife and do it yourself.
