  •  Cool environment and all my friends loved the seafood. Sorry non fish fans. If you think you can just get a side of fries to hold you over, think again. The fries are worthless.

    55555 by Eric G.


  •  Legend and history explain popularity and the price! Not cheap but really yummy! Seems house white wine s not a good option, we had a Russian river, really good!

    55555 by Na H.


  •  If you have Boston City Pass and the page of Union Oyster House, show it to the hostess and you'll get priority searing plus free clam chowder. And for the record, Shrimps and Scallops is really good!

    33333 by Kieu Trang H.

  •  Good seafood in the oldest restaurant in America! Great building. Samuel Adams was a frequent visitor back in the day.

    55555 by Tim L.


  •  If its dinnertime & you didn't check in an hour and a half before you want to eat: just eat in the 1st come 1st serve section with the "lighter menu"

    33333 by K-Ro


  •  Seafood Newburg was excellent. I recommend reservations, even on a week night they were very busy.

    55555 by Valerie W.

  •  Great chowdah (if you are into that sort of thing.)

    55555 by Joshua B.


  •  The middle-aged Oyster shucker guy at the bar is a total asshole. I guess I would be too if I had to shuck oysters all day.

    33333 by Jeremy P.


  •  Definitely tour the building. It is cool. But for eating - sit at the oyster bar downstairs and have chowder, oysters, and amazing corn bread. Don't bother with the other food here.

    55555 by Jason H.

  •  Try to sit a booth 18 JFK sat here!

    33333 by Lee


  •  Believe the hype, the food holds its own against the fierce competition. Have at least a lunch here, for the rich history if not for the excellent food.

    55555 by John L.


  •  Ripoff tourist trap, coasting by on reputation. Terrible food.

    11111 by James D.

    55555 by Autumn D.


  •  Corn bread is A+ clam chowder is A+ crab cake is A+. Oysters A+ Their cocktail sauce is also original and gets an A+ Tables for 2 are pretty small, overall great place even with the hefty prices.

    55555 by David G.


  •  Southerners beware, the clams have fat bellies...but if you get over the shock they are truly delicious!

    55555 by Victoria T.


  •  The clam chowder was so so. There are many other better chowders in Boston.

    33333 by Eric H.


  •  Like other folks said, get the clam chowder. Also, swordfish broiled is pretty baller.

    55555 by Dale S.


  •  Skip the butter, and have the boiled lobster with veggies!

    33333 by Stella K.


  •  The clam chowder is really yummy!

    55555 by Yi W.


  •  The sodas are not free.

    33333 by Weary T.


  •  Go early and just get the chowder. Chowder is great, mussels were bland and our app with clams and oysters were over cooked not worth 90 dollars.

    33333 by Amanda B.


  •  Check out the cool little artwork recreations of each stop on the Freedom Trail in the room off to the left when you enter.

    55555 by DJ F.


  •  Check out the artwork display on the walls that depict the landmarks along The Freedom Trail.

    55555 by Ching Y.

  •  Chowder soup is good but $10 for a Chardonnay???? Are you kidding me???

    33333 by Alicia M.


  •  Try the New England Clam Chowder - The oldest restaurant with the best chowder on the planet. If its good enough for JFK n Daniel Webster it's good snuff for me. Since 1826. (via @Foodspotting)

    55555 by Kelly M.


  •  Untouched colonial architecture... which is a rarity even in the heart of Boston. Worth a visit for that atmosphere alone.
