Union Oyster House

The oldest restaurant in the country

If you’re looking for somewhere with real character, you’ve come to the right place. The Union Oyster House is not only the oldest restaurant in Boston but also in the entire country, in terms offering the longest continuous service. It was founded in 1826 at 41 Union Street and its over 250 year history speaks for the quality of its food. Its iconic kitchens serve up dishes (mainly fish and seafood) such as scallops, salmon, lobster, cod, mussels, swordfish... Yet, as the name suggests, its oysters are definitely the restaurant's star dish. Don’t be late if you want to come here for dinner as the restaurant closes at 9.30pm during the week and at 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Book your table online at www.unionoysterhouse.com.
