No Name Restaurant

As a Boston resident and lifelong New Englander used to great seafood I was sorely disappointed by the food at No Name. I had a seafood platter which had one oyster, one clam, a handful of rubberized scallops, some popcorn-type shrimp and fish fillet like shoe leather. The service was dreadful and the management had the nerve to impose a 20% tip! When I changed the amount on my check to reflect 12% the manager shouted "You don't want to pay 20%?"! I stuck to my guns and paid 12% despite his attempt to embarrass me.

I am from NJ however was in Boston on business for a few days. I heard the restaurant was famous and the food was great. Each of my co. workers and I were anticipating a wonderful meal. Our waiter was very friendly but the food was not good. I ordered salmon, my co. workers ordered everything from oysters and clams to blue fish. All of our food was very bland. The only thing that was tasty was our french fries. The waiter left and we asked someone else to find him or to get a check but they could not find him and did not get back to us. Needless to say we were quite disappointed and underwhelmed.

We are from NY, here in Boston for the weekend. I was very excited to come to Boston, especially for the food! I was told about this restaurant by three different people: the train operator, hotel receptionist, and a local pedestrian. So suffice it to say, we were very excited to go here. I gave the restaurant a 3 for the atmosphere because it is what you would expect from a place with no name; the atmosphere brought to mind a Ruby Tuesday’s. But the food and service do not stand up to the recommendations. Our waitress was rude and brief; barely interested in our orders or needs. We ordered a fried clam dinner and sautéed seafood with vegetables. My fried clams were soggy and undercooked with my cole slaw, tartar sauce, and French fries all thrown underneath. The sautéed seafood with vegetables was good, but would be better with different sides (also served with French fries and cole slaw). Overall, the experience left much to be desired and we both left disappointed.

Really great atmosphere. Served quick and ate very well. The Seafood chowder is excellent every time, and ive had it over 8 times. I really love the place and highly recommend it if you stay in Boston.

Great seafood place. Everything is very fresh, and often the waitstaff will be very helpful in choosing items off the menu. I have been many times now and the Swordfish is often the freshest thing on the menu. Also, the scallops, bluefish, large fried shrimp, and strawberry rhubarb pie are all around the best options, but they really haven't got a bad item on the menu.
