As Bostonians, Mainers and New Englanders we know a thing or two about Boston and Maine lobster. We’ve put together what we think is the top 10 best places for lobster in and around Boston. Have a favorite that’s not on the list? Put it in the comment section below!
10: The Barking Crab
Located on Boston’s historic Fort Point Channel at the gateway to the Seaport District, The Barking Crab has become one of the city’s favorite meeting and eating spots. You can find one of the best Lobster Rolls in town at The Barking Crab!
Located in the heart of the Seaport District, Legal Test Kitchen ventures into “uncharted waters and pushes the boundaries of innovation in premium food and drink.” You can’t experience Legal Test Kitchen without ordering the Truffled Lobster Mac & Cheese!
Located right on the Boston Fish Pier, this popular, rustic landmark serving New England seafood classics on historic Fish Pier since 1917, is a always a favorite spot for travelers. It might not be the spot where everyone knows your name, in fact no one knows your name at the No Name! Famous for their Seafood Chowder and Maine lobster!
7: Summer Shack
Located in the Back Bay, this popular summer spot serves the absolute freshest fish… you gotta taste it! The Summer Shack clambake, which includes lobster, mussels, clams, corn, etc, is a must-pick on the dinner menu.
Another Back Bay fan favorite is Ostra, located on Charles Street. Named, Boston Magazine’s Best Seafood Restaurant int 2016, you know you won’t leave disappointed. The Broiled Lobster plate is by far the best item on the menu, serving a 3lb Maine lobster with roasted cauliflower & pearl onions.
The Daily Catch is by far one of Boston’s most beloved restaurants (any Bostonian would tell you that!) Along with the unbelievable pasta dishes, The Daily Catch also serves one of a kind lobster dishes. Their world famous Lobster Fra Diavolo is AMAZING. ¼ lb live lobster cut into pieces with littlenecks, mussels, shrimp, and calamari simmered into a spicy seafood tomato sauce served over linguine…. Mmmm delish!
4: B&G Oysters
You absolutely can’t go wrong at Barbara Lynch’s South End Oyster Bar that also serves spectacular lobster! Enjoy your summer night sitting on patio enjoying either the Maine Lobster Roll or B&G Oyster’s famous BLT with lobster. Customers can’t get enough!
Atlantic Fish Company is a lobster-lover/seafood lover’s DREAM. Located on Boylston Street, Atlantic Fish Company delivers fresh seafood, surf & turf, and an extensive dessert menu to the Greater Boston Area. Start off with the lobster ravioli appetizer and end with the 3 lb Maine lobster, your stomach will thank you!
Island Creek Oyster Bar places seafood at the center of collaboration joining farmer, chef and diner. Everyone is loving Island Creek Oyster Bar this summer and we get why! The Lobster Roe Noodles dish on the menu is very popular. Braised short rib, grilled lobster, oyster mushrooms, and Pecorino… yes, please!
Last, but certainly not least, the famous Neptune Oyster. Don’t go the summer or the rest of your life without trying this place! Seriously. The Maine Lobster Roll is a classic and is always a Neptune Oyster fan-favorite. Their Monday night special Lobster Spaghettini is fantastic and what sounds better than Lobster Tacos for Sunday Brunch at Neptune Oyster? Nothing.
