  1. My favorite place for cherrystones is The Tides in Nahant. I believe a dozen is like $14 or so and they are always plump, juicy, fresh and ice cold. Now I want some. Thanks.

    1. Lately I have been liking cherrystones more than oysters.

      $8 /six and $14 /dozen at Legal Seafoods. Always fresh, ice cold, and well shucked. Pair up well with a Julius Echter hefeweizen too.

      $1.50 each at Summer Shack, shucking job not so great.

      1. Not a board favorite, but I've always had excellent cherrystones at Turner Fisheries bar. Also, Abe & Louis' (an order of cherrystones and the crabcake appetizer is dinner) and Grill 23 & Bar.

        Turner Fisheries Bar
        10 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA 02116

        Grill 23 & Bar
        161 Berkeley Street, Boston, MA 02116

        1. Okay, you trouble makers just gave me a terrible craving for cherrystones.
