This charming waterfront destination offers live lobsters and a shellfish-centered menu for dine-in and takeout.
James Hook & Co. is a third-generation family business, going back to 1925 when the current management’s grandfather would supply local restaurants with fresh lobster caught daily. Aside from dine-in and takeout, they claim to ship out around 50,000 pounds of lobster every day – that’s a lot of lobster!
When dining in, you’ll want to try the lobster roll – they claim it’s the best in Boston, and they might be right – and the Fish Chowda with Cape Cod Chips is a must-try.
Looking to ship the experience? Current specials on lobster tail and a full lobster dinner make it easy to experience Boston, the James Hook way, no matter where you might be on the map.
