Looking for Seaport area restaurant for Sat night without reservations
Could anyone suggest a place to eat in the Seaport area this Saturday night? I have never been there before and am a native Bostonian - just have not gotten there yet. I don't want to make reservations as I am unsure of our plans. We may do a harbor cruise or a cruise to the harbor islands to beat the heat.
Any type of food is fine, probably lower end budget (pub - burgers fish and chips etc) but open to all suggestions. Was recently at Legal's in the Burlington Mall and though my swordfish was very good they have gotten quite pricy! ($28.95 for my piece of sword!).
And where exactly are these places located? Not familiar with the area. I know where the B of A pavillion is, the WTC and where Jimmy's was. Also know the courthouse. just don't know where all the new places are in this area.
Many thanks for your help.
Legal's Harborside, Temazcal, Del Frisco's and Remy's are all on the old Jimmy's site. Legal Test Kitchen is right across the street. That area of the Seaport is my own personal hell on a Saturday night. If I had to pick a place from that list it'd be Temazcal, which I don't dislike for non traditional mexican food.

Across the street from the old Jimmy's spot is Salvatore and closer to the courthouse is Strega Waterfront and Sam's.

I would also suggest the No Name Restaurant which is down by the loading docks before you get to the old Jimmy's spot. They do a good job with your standard fried seafood dishes.

Went to the Daily Catch last night. Some service issues, and some terrible plumbing issues. The food, however, was very much the same experience as the North End original. Not a bad option considering we were a large party without a reservation!

You can walk into Salvatore's without a reservation on a Saturday night. I also would like to point out that they have a take out side which recently expanded. The take out side has a decent bar and plenty of flat screens and tables.
Yankee Lobster is down the street and pretty good. Wine and beer only and outside seating.
