Boston's Fish House
While fresh Florida seafood has its considerable charms, transplanted New Englanders often miss the fried clams, clam chowder and other specialties of their home states. This restaurant caters to those diners. The decor is extremely informal; customers order at the counter, seat themselves and await meals served on paper plates. On the menu are such treats as lobster bisque, and such entree favorites as fried haddock and fried clams, a house specialty. This restaurant is popular and does not accept reservations, so the wait can be quite long and many think it well worth it.
For $20.00, you can get the dinner portion of fried shrimp along with two sides....and believe me, they don't skimp....onion rings are delicious as is the cole slaw....and for that $20.00, you can also get a cup of the tasty clam chowder....not too many places in Orlando even serve it, let alone know how to make it....go there and you won't be disappointed....
Absolutely delicious! Seriously the best seafood I've ever tasted in Orlando. I've been to many restaurants and I've never tasted seafood that tastes as fresh as this. I love how down to earth the place feels when you go in and even though the order at the front thing is kinda different, but it's also nice to be able to leave when you're done. Love that! I hate waiting around for my check to come and then to wait for it to come back after we paid. Besides, most people that go there seem to be regulars because we asked a few people in line what to get and they all had their suggestions for us.
All I can say for the bad reviewers. You won't find seafood this good anywhere in Orlando, so that's why it cost a smidge more. Weigh the costs there. If you care about price that much then I'm sure you will be comfortable enjoying the sub-par seafood you get Red Lobster... but if you are serious about your seafood then go here... just not on Friday or Saturday night. You will have to fight your way in.
Ok so this place USED To be in an older building where you could sit down, order and eat. I ate there ALLLLL the time when I was a kid 20 years ago. The reason you have to order before hand NOW (in the front) is because of the tremendous popularity...that's the reason they moved.... I couldn't even imagine trying to go to this place in a normal setting again. It's a great place. Not somewhere you can eat at all the time because of the prices, but it's a great treat. You won't be disappointed.
After moving to Orlando a year ago, my family was really missing Boston's wonderful seafood. Found it! This place is wonderful. Five of us split 3 fishermans platters, ate like crazy and brought home enough for 2 more people. That was our treat! Well probably go twice a month and try their fried basket ($6.99 - $12.99). Back in heaven.
Celebrated my husband's 50th birthday on Saturday, who has been looking for real New England seafood (being that he is from Maine), what a blessing to have found this place. WE LOVE IT! Each person at out table ordered something different and we all tasted of each other's food, and each one us literally didn't find anything we didn't like.....well....the whole body clams, but then again I am a southerner. My husband stated he had not eaten whole body clams like those since he left Maine. We will return very soon!
As a true Bostonian who grew up on the coast of New England and lived on Boston Harbor for over 20 years I can tell you that this is the REAL DEAL. Easy ordering and fast service. Piles of piping hot, NOT greasy seafood (if you order fried) in a casual theme. If you are a fan of Boston sports you will love the decor because it is all about Boston from the Sox to the Pats and of course right now lets not forget the CELTICS...spelling their name out for those of you not from Boston.
Now back to the food. Try the scallops, no wait, the shrimp, no wait...oh heck....you will just have to keep going back until you have tried them all. Don't miss out on the onion rings or their own coleslaw because it is not to be missed.
Prices are more than reasonable for the portion and quality you get. If I want seafood I won't go anywhere else but here. Why go to the rest when this is the best?
Be prepared for lines because they are THAT GOOD!!!!! There is a cute little italian ice place in the same strip mall. You have to really look for this place so look for the Italian Ice place in it's bright Italian colors. This wonderful place is behind it in the same parking lot.
Nope, I don't know the owners, don't get paid for what I say...I just LOVE THEM and miss my fix of good fried scallops and onion rings etc.
I have been going to Boston's for many years and found the wait staff to be a 10, service is a 9 , quality of food a 10 and another l0 for restaurant cleanliness. Give it a try and you will find a wonderful eating experience. Its like being back in Massachusetts but warmer just like the interior of this restaurant.
