    Belle Isle Seafood (on the bridge between East Boston and Winthrop) has a Boston Harbor/Logan Airport view. No atmosphere, but some of the best lobster around

      Belle Isle has lobster, but it is a market with a few stools against the wall. I'd hardly even call it a casual restaurant as much as a take out joint. No great view of the ocean, but you can see a little water on the bridge.

      If you don't mind traveling to Quincy, you can have a lobster, steamed or baked stuffed at the Inn at Bay Point. Great water views, and they have an outdoor deck if you prefer to each outside. Also, they do a wonderful job with fried clams.

        Don't all lobsters have an Ocean view ;-) ?

          It's a bit of a drive, but how about the butter poached lobster tail at Latitude 43 in Gloucester? It's on the harbor. Another thought is lobster basilico at The Landing in Marblehead, also on the harbor. The Rudder on Rocky Neck (Gloucester) has seafood galore and is on the water, but they don't appear to have an out-of-the-shell option.

              I've never done this myself, but I've always been intrigued by the Spectacle Island Sunset cruise + clambake. Can't vouch for the food, but it fits your requirements. http://www.islandalliance.org/spectac...

                It's a little bit of a drive, but I think the best view of the ocean while eating lobster is at the Rockport Lobster Pool. It's "old school' - you eat at picnic tables - & mostly boiled lobster, but the view can't be beat - especially at sunset.

                How far of a drive from Boston are all these places? I assume a car would be in order.
