    Get the chowder!! We also got the clam and scallop fried platter and it was delicious. You can also do the steamed mussels if you don't want to go for the fried options.

    Wife and I were told about this joint from a local, who said "it's a hole in the wall, but it's fantastic!" He was right. Wife had fish n chips and I had the lobster& mussels So fresh and delicious.

    The clam chowder, with dill in the recipe, it is a must have! Super chill atmosphere, good and attentive service. I will comeback for sure

    Beer, chowder, oreo's at the bar. Nothing fancy and nothing wrong with that. Pretty great fish and chips and all your basic bar food. First place I ever tried chowder with dill. Great potato skins.

    This place is AMAZING. The clam chowder is fantastic an the fish & chips are the best I've ever had. Plus it's adorable. A "shack" in the middle of the affluent waterfront w/ great water views!

    Located right on Boston harbor, Boston Sail Loft is a perfect place for lunch or dinner with friends. Order the clam chowder, you won't regret it.

    This is the very best chowder in town! I also love that it's family run and there are Oreos on the bar. What more can you ask for from a local haunt?

    Nice location right on the water. Large portions so be prepared. Try the lobster dinner - it comes with steamed mussels & a salad.

    Get the clam chowder here and then another one next door at Joe's with a friend. Sit outside at Christopher Columbus park and debate which is better.

    Great seafood, especially lobster, with a view (small outdoor space). Nestled right on the sea.

    Right on the water. If the bar is crowded head outside and order through the balcony window.

    Best chowder in Boston. Maybe New England!

    With the water view and outdoor deck, the Sail Loft is a good place for a beer on a summer day and a cool place to camp out during a snowstorm.

    The clam chowder is unbelievable! I swore by Legals until I tried this. Its made with dill and is unlike any chowder I've ever had.

    Clem chowder was decent. Everything else seemed pretty average. Definitely not a stand out restaurant but good for a cup or bowl of chowder.
