B&G Oysters is a modern yet classic take on the oyster bar. Located on Tremont Street in Boston's South End, B&G Oysters has a decidedly neighborhood feel, combining polished but friendly service with fantastically fresh seafood dishes and food-friendly wines.

B&G Oysters has earned plenty of accolades over the years for its cuisine and wine program, including Boston Magazine's Best Seafood in 2007 and 2008. The subterranean spot draws energy from its open kitchen which is surrounded by a white marble bar. In warmer weather, diners enjoy drinks and more on the stone patio; a favorite outdoor dining spot in the city.
