where to get steamers?

steinpilz Jul 15, 2011 02:19 PM

I was thinking tonight about getting some steamers in the Boston area, hopefully by the water, and what did I come up with? Legal Seafood, Dolphin, and the Salty Dog. Are there any other good (seaside) places where I can get steamers? Thanks!

        I've had good steamers at the Summer Shack. Are you willing to head north? Can't do better for steamers by the water than the Lobster Pool in Rockport.

          Captain Carlo's in Gloucester has them, too.

        not by the water but the steamers at Island Creek Oyster Bar i had a couple of weeks ago were really, really good. i didn't even mind that they threw thyme in the steaming liquid.

            May try it, thanks for the suggestion! Unfortunately, I always think air conditioning when I think of that place.

            There's a place in Cleveland Circle, I believe.
