    Beautiful outdoor area on a cooler early summer night. Good happy hour specials, raw oysters, ahi tuna nachos, mussels and fries and decent cocktail selection to go along with. Bread for soaking up the mussel broth had to be ordered separately.

    What an enjoyable dining experience at Mass St Fish House! Fun cocktail menu, crab cakes for starters with a perfect crunch on the breading, then onto lobster tail and the Shrimp Bucatini Pasta! Great flavors on all foods and an excellent server who kept our table smiling!! I will definitely dine again!! Thank you so much for a great memory!!

    This is a really great restaurant with a lengthy menu, super oysters and superb service. Ambiance is a little lacking considering the prices of everything but can be overlooked. This was our 4th visit and it has always been a great experience.

    Menu and food are very good. Room is cramped and not a good layout. Service was kind but rushed. Spoke to the bartender about a too small pour and he suggested that I buy a double. Ridiculous.

    Second time to Mass Street fish house. Great oysters and mixed cocktails with a variety of local beers. The service was okay- ordered bread but never received it and a couple questions never answered. Ordered the paella and was left underwhelmed- the serving is small and taste is a bit odd with the amount of juices they add to it. If you have had paella at a legitimate place, I would recommend not to order it. Was a let down.

    Crabcakes to start, they were quite tasty. The salmon was good, nothing special. My girlfriend was underwhelmed with her shrimp pasta. Again, it was ok, just nothing that you couldn't find anywhere else.

    Had dinner with friends and there weren't a lot of left overs. The salmon Ruben sandwhich was good but super salty. The poor waiter had to refill my tiny water cup 12 times and I tipped home well accordingly. The drink selection was ok but the choices in wine seemed to be kind of cheap or super expensive without many options between.

    We ate outside, so traffic noise was moderately loud. It was a beautiful evening. We each had a cocktail, and both were novel and quite good. We had a selection of four different oysters. All were good. Two were great. We followed that with calamari and 1990 Barker bread. Both very good. As a calamari “snob” I’d love it more if they were more tender. (Chef: you know the trick!) I then had salmon with spinach and asparagus laced rice. It was on a tremendous pesto sauce. My wife chose a small plate of Bang Bang Shrimp and an asparagus side. We paired our dinners with glasses of wine. My wife had a glass of Cava. A nice Spanish brut bubbly. I had a red blend of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. It was delicious. We finished by splitting a lemon blueberry ice cream. Lovely. We thoroughly enjoy our choices and had great attention from Claire who was attentive but not intrusive. In all, we need to go to Mass Street Fish House more often. Yumm.

    Overall everything was very good. We ordered the bread and Brussels sprouts for appetizers. Bread is toasted and was pretty burnt. Brussels sprouts were ok, nothing special. For the entrees we had fish and chips, the shrimp pasta, and a lobster tail with smashed potatoes. Fish and chips and lobster were excellent, the pasta was good, potatoes pretty bland. Excellent service. I would go back.

    Food was a bit pricey, even given the happy hour prices. Oysters were small. Crab cakes were mushy. Pasta was one of the worst we've had. The ahi tuna nachos, however, were very good. We would come back for the nachos alone.
