"While the food service was slow the servers were attentive and never was the water glasses empty.
The burger was a bit messy as the roll was not adequate and rather stale . Will try an entrée another time.

Atlantic Fish has been a favorite of both locals and tourists alike, offering classics like award-winning New England Clam Chowder and Maine Lobster to more adventurous items such as our signature Swordfish Chop. The understated and timeless decor of the restaurant immediately draws the attention of those who enter. The dining room reminds one of a classic cruising vessel, complete with detailed woodwork and murals reflecting the spirit of the sea. Tailored to intimate dining with cozy booths throughout.

"Hard to find good seafood in Boston and heard Skipjacks was a good alternative to the over rated other fish behemoth.
While the fish was fresh the "special" preparations were a bit off, too creamy and obscured the fish flavor. Stick with the simple plain preparations.
