One of the greatest things about Boston is that there's a seafood shack (as in, literally an aluminium trailer) sitting right in between the skyscrapers, million dollar condos, and international banks in Downtown Boston. We don't understand the economics behind James Hook's continued existence, but we're glad it's still here. The seafood is as fresh as it gets (the lobster tanks are on site) and, even though we think the lobster roll has a little too much mayo, we've never not enjoyed eating one on the Greenway.
