We went for lunch and ordered the fish & chips and the clam plate. Huge, super fresh portions. We killed ourselves trying to eat it all, but it was totally worth it. Very reasonable prices, especially for downtown Boston.

I have never returned to the same place whilst on holiday. But the relaxed atmosphere and the food were such a great combination!

We popped in for our seafood fix. The staff that works there are very nice. We ordered 2 lobster rolls and a grilled cheese (for our son). While the prices were a little steep, the quality is excellent and very tasty.

I went for the original roll and was not disappointed! The portion was huge and came with chips and slaw. The restaurant décor is fun!

Fresh seafood with an exquisite clam showder and fresh oysters with taste at an affordable price. There is something for all ages and tastes. Parking is limited though.

Walked from the Westin Waterfront to the restaurant. Boston was very , very cold last weekend this is the first time at Yankee Lobster and it was a good experience. The lobster roll was great and the fries were hot. Worth the cold walk.

Unbelievable. Nothing better than enjoying a UFO white and having a Lobster Club in the summertime. Best lobster in town!
