A farm to table American restaurant with a focus on seafood. Our menus change daily to reflect the best of what the markets have to offer and allows us to feature the work of many local artisans, growers and fishermen. A three course seafood tasting menu is always available. Jeremy and Lisa Sewall created Lineage Restaurant"s concept. We are a married couple with extensive culinary experience and deep New England roots. Located in the heart of Coolidge Corner, Brookline, Massachusetts, the name "Lineage" is based on Jeremy's own. In 1705, when this "Muddy River" hamlet of Boston became incorporated, Samuel Sewall, son of Judge Sewall of Salem Witch Trials fame, lent the community his services as the first Town Clerk and, it is thought, the name of his family's "Brooklin" lands, which lay between the Charles and Muddy Rivers.

"This venerable Coolidge Corner seafood restaurant surprised us with its understated, but attentive service, and absolutely fresh and delicious seafood specialties.
It seems to fly below the foodie radar, but should be in the top 10 Boston area eateries.

Rowes Wharf Sea Grille is perfectly situated at the most picturesque spot along the Boston waterfront. Chef Daniel Bruce’s vision for the restaurant celebrates the sea—inventive seafood dishes artfully presented, and a contemporary space with design accents that mirror the ocean beyond the windows. For great food, harbor front views, lively conversation and an upscale yet comfortable atmosphere, look no further than Rowes Wharf Sea Grille, located at the Boston Harbor Hotel..

"Although not gourmet level, the seafood at Turner's is reliably fresh, well prepared, reasonably priced, and served in abundant portions.
The service was very good, without pretention or hovering. The owner/manager (her name was 'Turner', so I assumed....) was very friendly and took extra time to inquire about a food allergy reported by one of the diners at our table. Nice touch!

"For a chain restaurant, the food and quiet ambience were surprisingly good. Our server was a little slow, but overall, a very pleasant dinner.
Not memorable or gourmet, but we will go back for reliable and affordable seafood.

"This extraordinary architectural design allows for an elegant, quiet, and delicious meal. The servers were helpful and pleasant. The food was excellent, but not as wonderful as the space. Well worth a visit, however."
