I went for fried whole clams and oysters, takeout. I went at lunch. The quantities were almost shockingly ample, and the breading didn't crumble off. I like them better than Legal there. However, the molluscs were watery, lacking in saltiness. It harmed an otherwise beautiful offering, because just salting the outsides didn't seem to be the answer. I may not get these again, and it kills me because everything else was perfect and it's so hard to even find fried clams around here. Of course, if you're watching your sodium anyway (I don't have to), what have you got to lose? Decor is very elegant, even a posh bar; you may impress your upscale date by unveiling this place behind its humble exterior (in a concrete arcade). No problems with service.

After reading a few positive reviews on this restaurant, I made the classic mistake of brining several friends from out-of-town before trying it myself. Big mistake! The food was substandard by New England standards and the service was terrible. Out of a few dishes I tried, the raw oysters were very good, the blackend catfish was good, the other 3 entrees and 2 appetizers were below average. I was particularly disappointed with the fisherman's platter which was weak on the key ingredients - shrimp & scallops. Many better places to eat in Boston.

I've been searching for seafood restauarants like this one! As a seafood veteran I know fresh fish. I met the owner and he explained to me that he picks the fish up every morning himself. I certainly could taste it! The Cambridge location has been there for over 30 years. I can't believe I never knew about this place.
