Located in the heart of one of Boston's most expensive districts, this place oozes class and money and banks and all the other stuff generally associated with humorless white people. Normally I would not be allowed in such a joint, but I just so happened to have finished a job interview and was clad in a fine 3-piece that was tailored for me, personally, by the experts at Sears.

The aesthetic is aggressively open and white (in the color sense, not the racial sense). It gleams like heaven, or the end of a detergent commercial. There's a bar in the middle looking directly into the kitchen and then high-top seats round the perimeter. Above the bar is a pegboard sign that announces the beer list in white, sans serif letters, as if they were sandwiches at a deli. It's a very cool touch, and thankfully it's also supplemented with printed beer lists.

The selection was broad and extensive, and while it was pricey it wasn't as bad as many other places in the area. There was nothing too horribly obscure on draft (Maine's Mo was there, though), although the bottle selection had some hard to find stuff at sky-high prices (50 bucks for a Bo and Luke).

So it's not exactly my scene, but it's still a very nice beer bar with some very nice seafood.

This place is the real thing, a top notch seafood joint that doubles as a beer bar. Great location in the Seaport District so there will always be plenty of parking around and only a few steps away from Trillium Brewing is a plus.

The level us service is amazing but that is expected being a sister of Eastern Standard / ICOB. Tight lunch menu, had a round of oysters and the fish & chips ... both amazing though the clam chowder was too busy. Beautiful looking bar and dining area.

The beer list rivals all of the Boston area beer bars so I hope they keep it that way ... I had Trillium Farmhouse dryhopped with Citra on cask, Ritterguts Gose on tap, & Oerbier on tap. All were poured is perfectly clean glasses ... all different and without logos. That is another thing ... no beer logos to distract you. Beer list was acurate with style, abv's, pour size and price like all proper beers list should be arranged.

Do yourself a favor and visit this place ASAP. You'll be kicking yourself you did not do it sooner.
