Zopper Oct 13, 2008 06:38 PM

can I go down there and grab a lobster roll still....?

or even better will they open up some Oysters for me?

any idea of prices on oysters vs. going to Neptune or the like?

    They are serving their lobster rolls. Not sure about shucking the oysters - never seen it being done during any of my many visits.

      You can pick up a lobster roll and find somewhere to sit by the Boston Harbor Hotel or the courthouse. They're still available and as good as always.

      Since they're not a restaurant, I don't know if they can shuck oysters then package them to sell. I've never seen it, but it might be worth calling them. The last time I was in a local fish market like Hook, oysters were about 1/3-1/2 the price of restaurants, but it's difficult to compare when the sources (and freshness) of the oysters may be different.
