Seafood Tower

Can you recommend a restaurant in the Back Bay of Beacon Hill area that has a fabulous seafood tower. Looking for excellent quality first and value is always a bonus.

    Maybe try the Oceanaire Room?

      I enjoyed the seafood tower I had at Smith & Woolensky near Beacon Hill.

        Abe and Louis' has a very good one. Bring lots of money!
        Capitol Grille actually has a good one as well. Still, bring lots of money!

          This isn't quite what you're looking for in terms of a "tower" or in terms of geographic location, but I'll add that Eastern Standard offers a Shellfish Platter ($65) that looks pretty great. I haven't ordered it specifically but we get oysters there regularly and have never been disappointed.

            ICOB's is great. Easily dinner for 2+ (menu says it's for four, but that would be more app sized). I thought it was a great value when it was $72, has now gone up to $80, but I think it is still worth it.

              They know how to handle shrimp cocktail as well as oysters. Never had a tower, but
