This place has a great lobster roll. It's a little bit pricey but worth every penny. Outside seating is comfortable,... clean, and in a great location. The portion sizeof the lobster meat on the roll was generous. They can make it with mayonnaise or with butter /oil.read more

A cool place to visit in Boston when the weather is nice. Seating outside is quite chill and simple. Had a lobster... roll, a shrimp cocktail and a large crab cake which were very tasty and fresh but the portions kinda on the small side.read more
The service is great. The lobster roll is amazing, however be prepared to pay $30 for a roll that keeps you wanting... more. I’m not going to lie >> It was definitely one the best ones I’ve had in Boston just a little too expensive for the amount you get. (Just to keep in mind)You have choice to sit indoors or out which is nice. There’s hardly any space indoors but it is an option. All of the fish also look really fresh. I will definitely keep this place in mind when food shopping for fish. (Btw in the photo I had already taken like 2/3bites)read more
I love James Hook. The cold lobster roll is excellent. Great bread, no gross filler, and lots of lobster. Best mayo... lobster roll in the city, in my opinion. I also really enjoy their clam chowder, but am usually beyond full with a large lobster roll. They have much improved their outdoor seating in the last year, so added bonus.read more

Very organized and easy to order. Nice outside seating area. The lobster roll was definitely fresh lobster, but nothing... I have not tasted before. I was hoping for some type of special sauceread more
Generous flavorful buttery lobster served on a toasted roll delivers the true New England experience right there at... Boston harbor. Some seating outdoors at picnic tables for those looking for dining in the rough at a lower price than other notable venues. Awesome fresh fish and cleaned shellfish sold too. The prices will reflect the quality and freshness, but worth it.read more
