Coming in from Philadelphia, need decision!!

Need to choose between B&G Oysters, Eastern Standard, Summer Shack, East Coast Grill, Neptune Oysters. Found all of these through various websites, perhaps tell me if they are worth the visit and in order of preference please. Have only one reservation so far at Erbaluce for Saturday night. Need more ideas favorably seafood. Coming in to hopefully see Phillies beat Red Sox!!

  1. As far as seafood, here is my opinion, from best to worst.

    1. Neptune
    2. B&G
    3. East Coast Grille (some may argue this should be #2)
    4. Summer Shack

    1. The places you mention are all good - with the exception, in my opinion, of Summer Shack. The two with Oyster in their name are your best choices for seafood, but Eastern Standard has very good food and excellent cocktails - and is only a couple of blocks from Fenway. But if you want to eat there before or after a game, you'd best reserve your table well in advance.

      And may my Boston ancestors forgive me for aiding and abetting a non-Red Sox fan!
