Wife and I had a perfect meal at the OX. I had the aged filet and my wife had the cod. We started with the hummus. One of the best meals I've ever had. Period.

I love the way Downtown Lynn is progressing. Blue Ox is one of the pioneers in the area. Food is exquisite. The atmosphere is inviting. Staff is friendly. Prices are on the high side, but the quality of the meal makes up for it.

The Blue Ox is an excellent restaurant in the heart of Lynn. At 9:00 on a Saturday night, it was absolutely packed. We had to wait quite a while to be seated for our reservation, which was largely the fault of a prior group simply...More
