Ate here last year. Looked for a place with takeout seafood platters in Stone Harbor. Stopped here. Platters were huge and food was great.

After a lifetime of visiting Stone Harbor during the summers, this was our first visit to Back Bay Seafood. Preparing fried food requires patience, attention, and a good recipe. If the food is over-battered or overcooked, your dining experience will be difficult. If your food is overcooked and over-battered its more than difficult, it's a disappointment and unacceptable because of... More

Hole in the wall take out - expensive and not great. Maybe it is a New Jersey thing, but if for example, you're expecting New England style fried seafood, you'll be disappointed - this is a very heavy, clumpy dark fried batter that overwhelms the shrimp, clams etc. underneath. The lobster tails are tough and stringy, - not inedible, but... More

We had been going here for years. Every year it seems to be loosing a little of it's charm and quality. Last time we went the chicken wasn't fully cooked and after a lot of unnecessary back and forth from the manager we decided there are a lot of other places to find hot delicious meals.

I know it's all about the seafood but the linguine here is fantastic. The crab cakes are also really good and the fish is what you would expect from a good local fish joint. And it's right next to Mack's so you can grab a pizza for the kids.

We have been coming here for years and always look forward to returning for the delicious crab cake sandwich! Order early by phone to get your desired pick up time and don't worry about the line to get in for pick up. You will never be disappointed.

This was our first time ordering from Back Bay Crabcakes and we were impressed. The Crabcakes were excellent - loaded with meat and very little filler. Cole Slaw was the best I've ever had - and I am not a slaw fan. Love that you can schedule a time for pickup and they were very accommodating to our request. Definitely... More

We've patronized Back Bay for many years - and recently had a terrible experience. The chicken parm dish we ordered was undercooked, rubbery and chewy, and we simply asked for a replacement dish - another COOKED chicken parm. The manager was horribly rude, ignorant, and mocked us for simply asking for a replacement meal that was edible. The crabcakes may... More

Best crab cakes I've had -- and this is from someone coming from Maryland. But for a carryout operation, the prices are kind of high and that means we can only order once in a while - that's why I need to knock off one star.. We understand that this is stone harbor and that prices are higher at the... More
