Zee Grill is the type of place I have walked by for many years as there are no windows to the street and a rather innocuous sign, "Phoebes Zee Grill"- What a mistake! Although the decor is very understated the busy kitchen in the front...More

Zee Grill is a perennial favourite. Whether enjoying oysters (they carry many different farms, including from PEI and Massachusetts.), the appetizers (the cone of fries with aoli and the crab cakes are delicious) or the entrees (always a fresh fish special) you will be delighted....More

Had not been there in decades. The service was fantastic. Quick, friendly and able to "read" us quickly. Not a cheap place to go but a good solid menu. Had the oysters. Just beautiful. Would go back for something else to try.

North End
The North End is a nucleus of specialty food
