We arrived at B and G Oysters after a long travel day. Great little restaurant. The food was very good although We ordered the seafood tower and we thought it was a little on the expensive side for the price ($75.00). Overall, the place had a very cool vibe. We had great service from multiple servers. We had a small... More

This is a very casual, small restaurant setting, almost like a deli but with fish. Many seats are at a counter that surrounds an open kitchen; the tables are very close together. So the prices are high for the experience. On a quiet, cold Sunday night, even though no one was waiting for a table, our service was rushed.....even after... More

We had an excellent dinner and experience at B&G Oysters: calamari & razor clam ceviche for starters, the lobster roll as our entree and a lemon tart for desert. The desert was not great and had little lemon but when I told the waitress, she took it off the bill, which was nice. Service was great and nice setting. We... More

B & G Oysters is a small, intimate seafood restaurant in the South End. The food was fabulous, and the service impeccable and friendly. The number of people seeking to dine without reservations was far in excess of seating, and wait times exceeded 2 hours. We had reservations, for which we became increasingly grateful.We shared a dozen oysters of different... More

My wife and daughter love it here, but, only for the oysters. if you dont like oysters like me, then much of the rest of the menu is limited. There is not much healthy here to eat, other than a beet salad, and a fish dish. Not for those who do not like fish.

I went twice in one day to this place! First I had lunch - 6 oysters with some crab (plus Muscadet and Chablis - a glass of)! Then I brought my partner back here in the evening after some live music and drinks at the Beehive just about opposite on Tremont. We had a dozen oysters and some more crab... More

No excuse for what they did to that Branzino! But let me start with the fried oysters. They were spectacular! The best fried oysters I have ever had. They were perfectly warmed through, and not over-cooked. The breading was light and crisp and not greasy at all. The home made tartar sauce was perfectly devine. I could not get enough... More

When in town, I enjoy a place with a really good oyster selection...and this is the place. The freshness and quality are topnotch. The clam chowder is also exceptional.

Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
