Seafood
Boulevard Seafood Company sources its seafood directly from the Fulton Fish Market in NY as well as other local purveyors. A retail seafood room displays these fresh catches of the day, available for purchase 7 days a week.


An open kitchen is the focal point of the 70-seat restaurant, which features a 6-seat counter for our Chef Table experience. To the rear is our casually appointed dining room, where we offer an array of daily lunch and dinner blackboard specials featuring the freshest seafood in the area.


Start with a fun selection from our "Mocktail" list that can be "spirited" with anything you'd like to bring! We are a BYOB so feel free to also bring your favorite beer and wine while letting our well-trained staff manage the rest!

The food here is always delicious - I would encourage you to explore and try something that you wouldn’t ordinarily go for as this place is simply amazing at pairing ingredients together to make absolutely scrumptious dishes.

As with all places in NJ during the pandemic, seating preferences are not top notch with everything being outside, but don’t let that stop you from trying this place. I’ve eaten here three or four times and it’s always spectacular.

We both had lobster rolls, which were wonderful. However we also had the oysters, which were not completely cut away from the shells. And there were bits of shell in the oysters. We've always had oysters when we came here previously, and never had this issue. I'm hoping it was an abberation.

First time OUT since lock down. The patio/deck and food did not disappoint. Would have chosen different play list bc Guns N Roses and Metallica is NOT dinner music, sorry. Seafood Risotto was stellar! Octopus salad was amazing! Both plentiful and cooked to perfection. Tuna Poke was so fresh and sea sweet.

First 5 star reviews are reserved for truly exceptional restaurants. That being said this was a delightful experience. The room was pleasant, menu items were varied. The wait staff offered recommendations and personal experiences that I found helpful This is a BYOB so be prepared. The waiter suggested a place a few doors down and even offered to walks us down there if needed. My wife ordered the salmon and thoroughly enjoyed it, I had the seared Tuna. Both presented well and prepared as ordered, not always the case in other seafood places. The room was a bit on the loud side but that may have been the table of 6 nearby celebrating something that we could not determine through the screeching. We will visit the location again, there is a menu to explore that based on first experiences is worthy of further exploration.

Went to give this place a 2nd try after years of swearing to never go back after the 1st bad experience. But we went to give it another try. Unfortunately it was exactly what we remembered it to be, I think the workers can forget the quality of service goes a long way and even better when the food isn't great. I would go to a place with mediocre food any day if the service was exceptional. Between sitting right by the entry on a freezing night, a wobbly high chair, the server never reading the specials to us even though we mentioned the slim pickings on the standard menu. We couldn't see the board of specials from where they sat us. Then to top it off, waited 30mins for 2 entrees, the app come out in 3mins. I mentioned it to the server and he said it was coming out now and disappears for 15mins.... one of which was a popular dish he said so should have been ready to go. The food was bland and honestly the worst part was not one apology for the delay from the server or front manager that night. Lastly, I would mention if the delay was acceptable because it was super busy but it wasn't.

The quality of the food has seemed to decline vs. a year or two ago. Calamari was not as tender and coating was not as crisp as previously. Filet mignon was a bit stringy and accompanying potato cake was mushy.

Always good food. However, It’s gotten very dysfunctional. Needs someone to be the daily manager with authority. It’s at that stage when it will continue to succeed or quickly crash and burn. Lastly, needs an update on some of the food. Don’t get me wrong, it’s all good, but after a few years, it needs an update.

We’ve been there several times and always an excellent evening. Food was great. During the experience a waiter dropped an aoili ramkin which splattered all over the floor on to my new sweater and pants. It was an accident but diminished the experience. Our waitress later advised that management would like to buy dessert. We agreed and when we got bill we noticed four desserts. When questioned the dessert was only for me. Perhaps if the hostess or manager came over and did the usual thing when the experience was affected they may have agreed to four desserts. The waitress could have been clearer. Nonetheless not the best time there. It’s still one of the best seafood restaurants in area just an accident.

Our food was excellent as usual! Our group shared a variety of oysters, had salmon, corn chowder and tacos (shrimp and cod, but there are other choices). The entrees were super delicious & visually appealing. The atmosphere is relaxed, and the servers are attentive. Our only complaint was the dessert: espresso creme brulee was dense and not custardy and had no espresso flavor at all. At a previous visit, the cookie dessert was not very good either. Poor desserts will not keep us from returning, but we will remember not to order dessert in the future.

Seafood Boulevard is one of the most consistent performing restaurants in Somerville! I love how clean the kitches is and to watch the chef preparing my food when I sit at the counter. I am a regular and the quality of the food, service, and preparation are top notch!

Most of the food was very tasty, but one of the dishes was served with a side salad that had a very interesting dressing that was not described on the menu and it ruined the whole taste of the dish. The brunch menu is quite limited, but they were accommodating and did make a salad from the lunch menu. Service was fine, but the food came out very, very slowly - with 2 appetizers and 3 mains, we were there for well over 2 hours!

Once I relaxed following an initial encounter with a very abrupt hostess, the dinner could not have gone better. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. We never felt rushed.
Oysters were clean and cold and priced fairly.
Seafood Risotto was outstanding.
Reminds me of a narrow cafeteria, but if you want great seafood at a fair price, and a BYO, this is the place.
Hard to imagine that I am the first to comment on the abrupt hostess however.

This is about the third or fourth time I have had the pleasure of dining here and I must say that the food is ALWAYS outstanding - fresh and delicious! Don’t forget that it is a byob ( I did yet again ) but there is a wine store just across the street. The staff -not our waitress - brought out our main entree while we were still eating our appetizers, but other than that gaffe the service was just fine. I highly recommend going here and trying whatever special thats “on” for the evening. You won’t be disappointed! Bon Apetit!
