Union Oyster House • Boston

Boston’s Union Oyster House is located along the historic, picturesque Freedom Trail, near the business of Faneuil Hall. It is touted as Boston’s oldest restaurant and holds title as the oldest continuously-running restaurant in the US.

The building dates back to Pre-Revolutionary days, serving food since 1826. The interior is unique – with the stalls and a long oyster bar where Daniel Webster sat at each day – enjoying a savory meal with his tall tumbler of brandy and water – still standing in their original positions. Try their Basque-style mussels steamed with garlic and white wine, their mouth-watering Union-grilled oysters, or their Seafood Newburg – made of lobster meat, tender shrimp, and scallops cooked in a rich, sherry sauce, served on a baked pastry shell. A favorite for locals and visitors.
