Seafood in Back Bay area for parents coming to town

Hey Chowhounds,

My parents are coming up to help me move out this weekend and I'm looking for a good seafood place in the Back Bay area or anywhere with easy access from the T. Price isn't too much an issue as long as it's not exceptionally expensive ($50 entrees, no thanks). I'd also prefer a place that isn't too fancy, it can be a really casual place as long as the food is good.

    1. re: maggie may

      Everyone keeps recommending that to me but we have a Legal Seafood back home, and everyone's been there before.

    2. How about Atlantic Fish? Not sure about the price tag though

        1. Oceanaire at City Hall Plaza, excellent. They are fairly expensive, however, last time I was there the waiter told us that they have a undavertised nightly 3 course special at $32.95 everyday of the week, including Saturdays.

          1. I would recommend not focusing on Back Bay and trying out Neptune Oyster in the North End, it is T accessible, casual, moderately priced and the food is excellent.
