BOSReview

Seeing as it sits directly on the harbor, you’d think the East Boston waterfront would be filled with places to grab a bite and enjoy the views of the water and the Downtown skyline. And yet, ReelHouse is pretty much your only option to do just that. But luckily, it’s a pretty good option. It’s got a big, interesting seafood menu that gets the job done considering the real reason you’re here: a huge outdoor space with a bar that feels like the cocktail reception of a summer wedding. If you’re not into seafood, they have plenty of things like duck breast served with kumquat marmalade and Malaysian chicken wings for you. But otherwise, get some oysters and salmon crudo tacos and enjoy the view.
