Inspired by what he found in the United States, Anthony Wong came up with the concept to bring the magic of Boston to Singapore,offering fresh and premium seafood in a casual setting with an underlining self-service concept to keep prices low.

With new staff and 1-for-1 mains, give this place a chance

Registered to leave a positive review for the great service that we experienced yesterday.

We were apprehensive initially due to their rating on this site, but the children were really attracted to their decor outside...heh. Their indoor seating area had a musky smell but after a while we got used to it (was also too lazy to carry everyone out after they were settled, and hubs was too hungry). The female service staff apologised for not knowing the menu well enough after a couple of questions as it was only her 3rd day (this info was volunteered to us and of course we didn't have any issue with it); there was spillage, a dropped spoon and a runaway cherry tomato (get it together kids.. Geez!) but these were promptly dealt with by both staff -- wait, we didn't even wave our hands, how did they know? On top of that, I'd say they handled the growing Saturday lunch crowd pretty efficiently.

Turned out there were 1-for-1 mains at this branch. Lobster rolls were unavailable (whaaat..??), and so we ordered the Caribbean feast at $25. Both baskets of dory fillets, calamari, large prawns, oysters, fries and coleslaw could've fed 4 adults. Their Chocolate Burst milkshake was decent enough. Cold/warm water is also free and promptly refilled.

At the end of it all, I thought we'd gone overboard with the fried items (wish there was more slaw), but the hubby and boys were well-stuffed and extremely pleased. Would return, but next time we'd be dining outside.

The Boston Seafood Shack is a casual eatery with a fun nautical themed interior. Its interior imitates the Boston Quincy Market with rows of wooden benches and tables. The Mussels in Spicy White Wine Broth ($13) was a pleasurable delight. The aromatic white wine was not too overpowering and leaves a tingling sensation in the tongue. The mussels were however not well marinated with the sauce, but a little manual stir with the spoon works just fine as well. The Boston Premium Lobstah Roll ($18) was rather disappointing. The lackluster bun was hard to chew on and felt like it was going to expire soon. The lobster, although a generous portion, was not fresh and the marinate had too much of a fishy taste.

Main course for each individual came one by one in 10-15min interval. By the time the last course come, it was a 45 min wait for my 1st friend. The restaurant was not packed at that time. Maybe 3-4 tables including us? And we ordered fried platter and spaghetti, food was extremely mediocre. For the price. not going to come again.
