No Name Restaurant

I read the reviews here and this is one great restaurant, with fine food, potent drinks, tasty deserts, and friendly staff. We ate there recently while attending an area event, and loved it. There was a rude man that seated us, but we ignored him. The rest was great.

Seriously the worst lobster I have ever had. I used to use the expression "a bad lobster is better than a good hot dog". Well this restaurant has made that expression obsolete. Our waitress although personable, does not eat seafood- seriously? Maybe that's why she can work there, she doesn't have to have worry about recommending anything. The final blow was the fact that the tip was icluded in the bill and then when you pay, a separate line for "tip" is on the bill. Hoping you double pay the tip I would wager. My best tip for you is go to the seven eleven, grab a hot dog and save your money!

Visiting from Ca. and No Name was recommended. Liked the casual atmosphere and was excited at the prospect of fresh seafood without the high price. Broiled fish platter was very overcooked, dry and flavorless. Fried clams were soggy and tasted of breading more than clams. The clam chowder was good. Lots of clams, fish and even a shrimp or two without the usual abundance of potatoes but didn't like the grease floating on top. Garlic bread was ok, reminded me of what was served in Jr. High at break time, sometimes good, sometimes burnt, sometimes garlicky, sometimes just toasted bread. I enjoyed the cole slaw but the tarter was basically sweet pickle relish.. I wouldn't bother to return. The 25% lower cost compared to newer, upscale places isn't worth it.

We were visiting from Chicago and this place was recommended for seafood. I'm the only one in my group of 7 that is vegetarian. We called ahead to see if there were vegetarian options. We were told by the manager that they could "work with us". Their idea of vegetarian options was canned string beans, frozen corn on the cob (half an ear), cold french fries and cole slaw. And toasted bread. I could've done better at "Popeye's".

2 of us went 6/26/12 pre concert, seating and service were quick. I had broiled seafood plate, reasonably priced. The french fries were mushy, undercooked and flavorless, scallops luke warm out, cool center, cod was small, thin, not flaky, very little texture or flavor, swordfish ok. Fried clams were small, greasy and overcooked, my friend complained, the poorest fried clams he ever had. I did not know you could get such sub-par seafood in Boston

I live on the west coast and our dungeness crab are better; chinook salmon too. Anyway.... First time at no name and it was a pleasant experience. If you want a waiter to hover over you or little flowers on your artistic mound of potatoes, go somewhere else (and pay the price). What I got was a nice size filet of whitefish, delicious creamy coleslaw, and perfect french fries. This was after the wonder fish chowder. Prices were right in line (other restaurants in the area are way over the line). This is a family, fun restaurant with a good view, and homey, friendly staff. I was surprised to find that each glass of iced tea was charged as a separate drink - no free refills - but it was tasty. Better in Texas, but good. I'm going back for lunch tomorrow.

We’ve been going here for over 20 years. If you’re looking for good seafood for a good price this is the place.
