A New England institution where diners don bibs and crack open lobsters with their bare hands. – In Short
With 30-plus outposts up and down the Eastern seaboard, this Cambridge-based chain reels in a seemingly endless supply of after-work professionals and tired tourists. The look varies somewhat from establishment to establishment but a casually nautical theme and a crowd as loud as the ocean's roar are fairly consistent. Signature dishes include clam chowder, wood-grilled swordfish, steamed clams, and 2-pound lobsters that can be ordered baked and stuffed with scallops and shrimp.
Are We Talking About the Same Place? – Went here with a party of 10 for Easter lunch and had a fabulous time. I can't fathom what the reviewer below is talking about. My family ordered Chardonnay wine, calamari, lobster, Alaskan crab legs, stuffed shrimp, wild salmon and halibut and everything was extremely fresh and delicious. It was well worth the price. They also have a private room that can accomodate parties of 30 and that would be a nice location for a birthday or special family gathering. I liked the fact that the music wasn't blaring and that you could actually have a conversation. Service was good and we never felt rushed. I also loved the nautical theme seen throughout the restaurant. This is a nice place --- enjoy. I certainly plan to. One suggestion -- make reservations. This is one of the higher quality chain restaurants I've been to.
Wast of money – I went here with my husband expecting great seafood and was totally disappointed. We shared the Clam Chowder that tasted exactly like canned soup. I order the Almond Encrusted Salmon and the the crust was stale and the entire dish had no flavor. My husband had the Fisherman's Platter and that wasn't anything special either. The only thing that was tasty there was the Bananas Foster but we didn't go there for the dessert. You could get better food at any local crab shack for much cheaper. I will never go here again.
