Best Fish & Chips in the metro Boston area

I'm looking to take my husband out for his birthday this week and he loves fish & chips. Any recommendations for the best in the metro-Boston area? Nothing too greasy with extra heavy batter. Just looking for fresh fish with a nice crust and good flavor. Thanks in advance!

      totally, the publick house is my fave in boston. yum.

    2. There's a fair amount of places around Greater Boston that do a more than decent job on fish & chips so I'll just add two of my favorites;
      Stone's Public House
      Matt Murphy's Pub

      .....and since it's summer and The Stone has great Paddy-O dining I'd have to tilt towards their substantial offering that has an unbelievable light batter. Fwiw, I order it there with curry chips.

      Matt Murphy's
      14 Harvard St, Brookline, MA 02445

      Stone's Public House
      179 Main St, Ashland, MA 01721

      1. It's been a while, but I used to really love the Blarney Stone's. And, at this time of the year you can eat outside on their patio -- you would never know you are chow-ing on Dot Ave!

        1. They're very good at the Druid in Inman Square.

          1. Don;t forget Moultons Seafood Medford. Check prior posts for more information

              I have to agree with Meffababe, Moultons Seafood on Winthrop Street in Medford is excellent. I have been there several times to eat in and once for takeout. They make an excellent homemade clam chowder. I like their fisherman's platter with haddock, clams, shrimp, scallops and fries. Moulton's uses trans fat free oil.
