No Name Restaurant

Updated 11/13/2013

Fodor's Review

Famous for not being famous, the No Name has been serving fresh seafood, simply broiled or fried, since 1917. (For the non-Piscean inclined, they also serve steak, chicken, and kid-friendly chicken fingers.) Once you find it, tucked off New Northern Avenue (as opposed to Old Northern Avenue) between the World Trade Center and the Bank of America Pavillion, you can close your eyes and pretend you're in a little fishing village—it's not much of a stretch. And, the free

parking is a bonus.

Stick to the basics if you go here

It's possible to get a decent meal here if you stick to fried stuff and the fish chowder -- not the place to try and stretch the boundaries. Generally not a favorite of the locals; has a decent water view, grubby decor, reasonable prices, and OK service. Can be hard to find, tucked away in a fish pier building and not that well marked.

No Big Deal

Was looking forward to the No Name for dinner last night but it turned out to be no big deal. I had scallops and my companion had lobster. Nothing at all to brag about. We could have had as good a meal at The Red Lobster.

Love this place!

While not the easiest place to find, once you do arrive here, just ignore the lines, as people are also lead in through the back entrance. Yeah, it's not a 'fancy', all-decked-out place like 'Legal', but the prices are way better, and frankly, I think the service is better, as you don't have to flag down any old waiter and pay each time you order. I also like that it's a BYOB place, but if you're bringing wine, try to have a corkscrew with you.

The fish doesn't come any fresher than they do here. I can't understand the middle-of-the-road rating here. C'mon people, lighten up! This place is fantastic!

Doesn't live up to the hype

The food here is only okay. The seafood chowder was gross, it tasted like hot milk with fish in it. Compared to other seafood restaurants in Boston, this is a good value, but if I was a tourist in Boston, I'd rather spend a bit more money and go to Legal Sea Foods or the Atlantic Fish Company. If you can leave the city, go to Turners on Main Street in Melrose, it's an excellent place for seafood!!
