Lunch on the water in Boston?
We have out-of-town friends visiting in a few weeks, and they want to have lunch in Boston at a place with a water view. If it serves lobster, so much the better.
They suggested Anthony's, but I've read the awful reviews of that place.
I just had the same dilemma and was darned to try and find something on the water to bring out-of-towners. I've just recently went to Dante in the Sonesta on the Charles....that was ok..., But a simpler choice that's perfect for lunch was theZephyr at the Hyatt on the Charles. Burger, Sandwiches, lobster roll, salads and excellent thin crust pizza. Simple lunch fare, very reasonable prices, one of the prettiest views and.....(drumroll please) four hours free parking in their garage. We sat outside for four hours this weekend and it couldn't have been nicer. A stroll on the Charles after lunch is a great option, then take a ride down to the Moakely Courthouse for a walk, hit up the bakery at Sportello or Flour. Grab some coffe and sweets and head down to the pier at the No Name behind Legals' banquet building. The best views of the harbor, airport, boats, planes. Its simple...but great..

I've had a couple good lunches at Sail Loft. Standard fried seafood as well as sandwiches and pub food, and they do a pretty good steamed lobster. Clam chowder and lobster bisque were also good. Anyway, much better than Anthony's (although that's not saying much).

I've had some nice lunches at the outdoor terrace of Oceana at the Long Wharf Marriot. Great views, not generally crowded and decent sandwiches. They do have a lobster roll.
