Lunch near the fish pier downtown Boston

Can anyone recommend a good place for lunch within 5 minutes of the Fish Pier? Is the NO Name still there? Waterfront would be preferred. Not Anthony's.

  1. Try LTK (Legal's Test Kitchen). I'll be the first to tell you that it's not the greatest but there isn't much else in the area.

    1. I was at No Name less than a year ago, I'm pretty sure they're still there...

      1. yes, no name is still there, so that's an option. you could also consider the barking crab for a more casual lunch.

        1. Yes, the No Name is still around, and for places in that area with a view, it's one of the better choices. Eastern Pier II is a Chinese spot (seafood emphasis) with decent food and also has a view of the harbor.

          I'm not a fan of the Barking Crab for service, food, or view. Intrigue in the Rowe's Wharf Hotel has a good view but not especially good eats. And despite the good view and popovers, the decision to avoid Anthony's Pier 4 is a wise one.

          1. Yankee Lobster is a fish market that also serves lunch and dinner. Not the greatest view but the food is decent. It is adjacent to the music pavilion.

              I have never been to Yankee Lobster but it always seems to get praise from the hounds on this board. I've peaked in and there's no question the ambiance is nothing special (and there is no view, unless you take your lunch to go and sit outside somewhere) but the food and reasonable prices should more than make up for that.
