Was there back in June. Ate lunch on a very hot day in June. Stood in line for 40 minutes and it was well worth the wait. You go inside order at the counter and then they bring the food to your table. You are able to eat inside or outside. Clam strips were sweet and perfect. The lobster roll was perfect also. We took a cab over from the cruise terminal. It can be walked from the terminal.

This is not a fancy restaurant. But, the food is very good. Best, in my experience, is the lobster roll. We've had a few other dishes there (i.e. swordfish, scallops) but the lobster roll is really best.

The service is pleasant and fast.

We had lunch here. There are a few tables inside and a few outside. The menu offerings are plenty! We started out w/a small clam chowder & clam strip appetizer. Spouse had a grilled shrimp platter w/coleslaw & fries. I had the fish & chips which also came w/coleslaw. Everything was so fresh and yummy! The clam strips were some of the best we've ever had; they were so light and fried perfectly. We really liked the coleslaw & clam chowder. There are plenty of fish shops to choose from in Boston. This one will certainly fill any seafood craving you may have and fill it with fresh, perfectly seasoned seafood. The portions are well worth the price. Yankee Lobster is definitely on our return to list!

Had the crab cakes, shrimp cocktail and both the hot and cold lobster roll, and everything was great. Prices, based on location, are very fair. Took out, so cannot comment on service. Would definitely repeat.

Like this casual seafood restaurant. Had fish and shrimp and food tasted very good.

I'm from out of town and didn't realize that water costs $3. Ridiculous. Maybe that's normal for Boston. I just wanted a cup of water to drink.
