Union Oyster House (Boston, MA)

We had dinner at the Union Oyster House, one of the oldest restaurants in US. They have history throughout and it is fun to read up on the history of Boston as well as this long standing restaurant!

Ambiance/Atmosphere: As mentioned, there is history displayed throughout the entire place. Our table was on the 3rd floor. It was like a pub style/old family home. It was welcoming and you could tell full of stories! The staff were awesome, quick service, attentive, patient and helpful!

Drinks: Mom and I had every intention of ordering seafood, so we decided to order white wine as it pairs so nicely. But they do offer a full bar of options. I may or may not have had my fill on liquor earlier in the day, so wine was a nice change LOL.

Menu: It is a is menu, and there are specials offered as well. Mom and I had looked at it prior and had it narrowed down to seafood but that was about it LOL. We decided to share all foods, so it did help to make some choices. We were greeted with warm, homemade cornbread. It was delicious, not too dry, but flavorful! It was hard not to eat it all and fill up on just that, but we resisted. We then ordered a half dozen of raw oysters (10/10). We expected nothing less as we were in New England. We also ordered fried calamari (11/10). They were lightly battered but so crispy! The fresh lemon squeezed on top paired with the fresh marinara sauce was the perfect, mouthwatering combination. We finished off with fried oysters and a side of mashed potatoes (11/10). Again, the batter was light, crispy and the oysters still very juicy. The mashed potatoes though. OH.EM.GEE. They were the best, creamiest, smoothest and buttery mashed potatoes I have had out! They were to dieeee for! LOL There is so much more on the menu I want to go back and try.

Tips/Recommendations: This is a popular place and even with three floors of tables, they were busy! So I highly recommend you make a reservation! It will help make the experience stress free and more enjoyable. Do take a peep at the menu before you go, because if you like food and seafood, it will be hard to decide LOL. Highly recommend the fried calamari as well as the mashed potatoes, even if it is only a side. And as always, try something new every time you go!
