Boston seafood buffet

Boston is America's oldest port, and is still serving New England as its maritime commerce hub and Boston's fishing fleet provides fresh catches daily for the city's numerous fish markets and seafood restaurants.  If you’re planning a seafood dinner or celebration for a group in Boston, charter a bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus from Charter Bus Boston.  Travel through Boston with your charter bus as you choose to dine in seafood restaurants throughout the city, from historic 19th-century establishments to contemporary restaurants, serving everything from familiar seafood platters to exotic gourmet creations.

The East Coast Grill is located a short charter bus ride away on Inman square, serving hot and spicy seafood along with a selection of barbecue plates.  Charter bus diners can also sample the grill's sushi bar selections and enjoy an after-dinner cocktail in the East Coast's Tiki Lounge.  Also located nearby is Legal Seafoods, a Boston-based chain that began in 1968 with it’s first outlet next to the Inman Square fish market.  Legal Seafoods' wine list is excellent and recommends that charter bus diners start with the clam or fish chowder, saving room for a slice of Boston cream pie for dessert.

Take your charter bus over to Boston’s North End where you have a choice of 2 establishments specializing in oysters.  The Neptune Oyster's menu changes daily, revolving around the freshest catch in the local fish markets.  This results in some very esoteric offerings on their menu, such as sea urchin, alongside traditional seafood favorites.  A short charter bus ride away is The Union Oyster House, which opened in 1826 on the former site of Capen's Dry Goods, and hosts a raw bar on its ground floor with a dining room upstairs.  Daniel Webster was a regular customer, and partial to the Union's oyster bar. 

Head chef Ken Oringer operates Clio, located next to his Uni sushi bar.  Tell your charter bus driver to drive down to Back Bay, where your charter bus group can sample the delights of Clio’s menu which specializes in French seafood specialties using exotic ingredients such as licorice root and baby eels. "Boston Magazine" named Clio Boston's best French restaurant in 2009 and highly recommends the scallop-shingled Cod.  Turner Fisheries is located within charter bus driving distance at Copley Square's Westing hotel and offers live jazz most nights.  Fodor's notes Turner's clam chowder won first prize at Boston's annual Chowderfest numerous times and enthusiastically recommends it to diners, while Travel Channel finds Turner's seared scallops particularly enticing.

Arguably serving the best seafood on the Cape, the Brewster Fish House aims to please. This small cottage looking stop is unassuming to those passing by in charter buses, but make a point to stop because inside is served fresh, perfectly prepared fare that will please even the most discriminating diner. The laid back atmosphere makes waiting bearable when you can cozy up to the bar and chat away with whomever ends up by your side.
