Belle Isle is one of my favourite restaurants in Boston to get my lobster roll fix. The lobster roll is a little on the pricier side but it's worth every penny. The seafood is always fresh and perfectly cooked. Belle Isle is located a few stops outside downtown Boston which is somewhat of a trek but easily accessible but the train.
Haddock with onion rings and chips, $14.99, had a nice light batter without being too heavy or greasy. I really love Belle Isle's coleslaw too.
The lobster roll is $23.99 and it comes with your choice of fries, onion rings, coleslaw or rice pilaf. The bun is nicely toasted and packed with fresh lobster meat both tail and claw. The lobster has a minimal coating of mayo and a squeeze of lemon juice, there are some lettuce for a crisp refreshing texture.
The crab cakes (not pictured), $13.99, were a little too salty for me. The plate comes with 3 large crab cakes, onion rings, fries and coleslaw.
Belle Isle renovated a few years ago from a dingy shack to a clean airy spacious restaurant with a beautiful view of Boston. Not only does Belle Isle sell cooked foods, they sell fresh seafood to take home.
