B&G Oysters Reviews List

B&G Oysters

B&G Oysters is a modern yet classic take on the oyster bar. Located in Boston's South End, B&G Oysters has a decidedly neighborhood feel, combining polished but friendly service with fantastically fresh seafood dishes and food-friendly wines. B&G Oysters has received many accolades over the years for its cuisine and wine program including "Best Seafood" in 2007 and 2008 by Boston Magazine.

This subterranean spot draws energy from its open kitchen which is surrounded by a white marble bar. In warmer weather, enjoy drinks and more on the stone patio; a favorite outdoor dining spot in the city. Please note that all reservations are for the interior of the restaurant. Our patio is available solely on a walk-in basis.

"Lively place, and very good service. We found the entrees to be on the small side with high prices. A 3 x 3 piece of Halibut for $26 ! Great chocolate mousse for dessert."

"B & G is a must go to. Really enjoyed the intimate atmosphere of the restaurant. They have classic seafood dishes that are prepared elegantly, but leave you feeling satisfied. Best Lobster Roll I have ever had. The only disappointment was the chowder - a little too much bacon for my taste. Would absolutely go back again."

"Brussels sprouts were delicious, but lobster BLT and my spouse's meal were surprisingly bland. Bread brought to table was quite lame, and stale. Great atmosphere, but unfortunately the food was a disappointment for us."

"We returned to B&G to eat our favorite lobster roll from my lobster roll marathon last year. Nicely spiced as we remembered. Be sure to make a reservation!! Guests were turned away, or told to wait for a long time without reservations."

"The food was good, but for a small restaurant with the staff size they have, we waited and waited. It took about 10 minutes from the time we ordered drinks to receive them. We waited 10 minutes to get the check and then another 5 for it to be picked up and then another 5 for it to be brought back."

"This is a little Barbara Lynch gem. Great seafood, fresh and tasty! Definitely make a reservation, this is not a great place for large groups."

"We went here on our first night in Boston. We wanted seafood since we were in Boston but wanted something different. B&G was fantastic. Really interesting wine list with some great choices. Service was incredibly friendly and helpful and the food match. My wife usually doesn't like clam chowder but was amazed at how good theirs was. We would go back in a second the next time we're in Boston."

"B&G Oysters was one of my family's favorite go-to restaurants when we lived in Boston. We were back in town for a wedding and we were very excited to return. The food was just as excellent as we remembered, particularly the oysters (we had to get another round at the end). They were also very considerate in asking us how we would like our meal served - cold items first, fried, hot, soup next? We were a little disappointed when we first arrived, however, because we had made a reservation a month in advance, but the host initially gave us a hard time when we requested for the larger of the two table choices that were apparently available upon arrival. We would have understood if they could provide us with a reasonable explanation, especially if the next party size was larger than ours, but since that wasn't the case, and we had arrived earlier, it just felt unreasonable. Eventually he gave in, but it affected the ambience of what for us was a much-anticipated, nostalgic experience."
