Boston’s known for its top-notch seafood and raw bar spots…here are some of our top picks!

IMG_9853ICO-Ethels-Lobster-Roll-1024x682


In the seaside city of Boston good seafood has long been the staple of area cuisine. With more options than you can think of for enjoying the fresh daily catch, we at Short Term Rentals Boston have put our heads together to narrow the field down to some of our favorites.

  • Island Creek Oyster Bar – 500 Commonwealth Ave. Boston, MA – Originating in Duxbury, MA and brought into the city, this seafood destination has a great selection of locally sourced fare in a swanky, modern setting. In addition to an excellent cocktail list and oyster sliders, those who want to take the festivities home can also order catered goodies like the “raw bar-in-a-box” for the perfect 4th of July celebration. – $$$
  • B & G Oysters – 550 Tremont St. Boston, MA – At B & G Oyster, servers are ready to describe the origin, flavor profile, and farming method of oysters, to the extent that one would when describing a fine wine. Diners here can enjoy a modern twist on the classic oyster bar. – $$$
  • Neptune Oyster Bar – 63 Salem St. Boston, MA – A tiny spot in the North End with some of the best seafood in the area, and the reviews to back it up. This casual local eatery could not be more publicized and is constantly showing up on Boston’s Best lists. Although there may be a line out the door almost every day of the week, it’s with good reason, and definitely worth the wait. – $$$$
  • The Barking Crab – 88 Sleeper St. Boston, MA – An open-air crab shack located in the bustling Seaport District and dress is super-casual. In terms of the menu, the clam “stuffies” are absolutely decadent, and for those with big stomachs, try your hand at a 10 lb lobster. – $$
  • Row 34 – 383 Congress St. Boston, MA – This industrial-style space in the Fort Point area is a great place to enjoy fresh seafood and some unique menu items. Dubbed “the workingman’s oyster bar,” the best part about Row 34 is that it’s also a craft beer haven, with enough choices to satisfy the palate of any beer connoisseur. – $$$
  • Legal Seafoods Harborside – 270 Northern Ave. Boston, MA – The Legal Seafoods chain is synonymous with Boston, and this 20,000 square foot flagship location in Boston’s Seaport doesn’t disappoint. With three floors and a super comfortable rooftop bar, diners have the choice of being in the sun or cooling down inside. Regardless of location, the oyster selection here is seemingly endless and of top quality. The rest of the menu features tons of other fresh seafood and the famous Legal clam chowda (although it might be too hot for that with the weather we’ve been having lately). – $$

Some options for those willing to travel for their fix…perfect after a long day at the beach

  • Woodman’s of Essex – 121 Main St. Essex, MA – If you’re looking for a place with great food that is steeped in history, look no further than this roadside seafood shack on the North Shore. Woodman’s is nothing short of a fried seafood mecca, and is arguably the most famous seafood eatery in all of Massachusetts. With quick service, pick-your-own lobsters, and a stuff your face picnic style atmosphere, what’s not to love? Definitely worth the drive! – $$$
  • Essex Seafood – 143 Eastern Ave. Essex, MA – At Essex Seafood the name of the game is HUGE portions of mouth-watering goodness. Thick cut fries and heaping portions of the freshest fish and shellfish make it a must-go. If you’re tired after a day at any of the nearby beaches, you also have the option to visit their fish market and take the day’s catch with you to prepare at home. – $$$
