Best Lobster in Boston

John N. Knoesel Apr 20, 1998 07:24 AM

Going to Beantown Memorial Day weekend to see the
Yankees @ Fenway.
Looking for a place to bring the family for a lobster
dinner. I've been to Legal a few times and was always
happy with the food.
Any other suggestions?
Regards, JK

    For steamed it's Skipjack's (both locations). For grilled lobster it's The Palm in Copley Sq.

      Anthony's Pier 4 is supposed to be good. It has a
      great view since it's on the pier. I haven't been in
      quite awhile, though, and I've heard the food has gone
      a bit downhill.

      If you are in the mood for Spanish food, definitely
      check out Dali's in Cambridge. Divine! Icarus is
      also supposed to be very good. If you like Japanese,
      go to Ginza in Chinatown and eat the Ika Moriyaki (or
      something like that). The Elephant Walk (mentioned
      before on the page many times) is also great for
      French Cambodian food.

      If you want more Boston suggestions, please ask, I
      miss the food there and love to reminisce.

      Have fun!

        Thanks for the reply. I had lunch at Anthony's a few
        months ago and while the view was fairly nice, the food
        was mediocre at best.

          In the past (not for two or three years, however) I've enjoyed Turner's Fisheries in Copley place for seafood in general; I don't know how their lobster rates. You might try Durgin Park, although people complain about it for just about every reason, the last time I ate there the mashed potatoes (which is my main reason for eating there) were just as good as ever and even though we arrived five minutes before closing, they insisted on seating us anyway and our waiter as was as nice as he could be.

            Try Go Fish at route 9 west, Natick , if you're in the
            neighborhood. Reminds me of the old Inman Sq.,
            Cambridge, Legal before it metastasized.

            Sorry for so late a response, but I've just gotten
            on(to) the net.

            Good luck!
