American in Boston

Of all the reasons to dine at Reelhouse, the cuisine is near the bottom of the list. The seafood and pub fare is usually pretty good. But you likely won't notice it much, as you'll be relishing the salty air, sea breezes and drop-dead gorgeous views of the Boston city skyline (with a killer sunset if you time it right).

This place is off the beaten track in East Boston. You can drive or take the T, but it's more fun to take a free water taxi from Pier Six in Charlestown.
