Where we've featured it
Pier 6 is the kissing cousin of the aforementioned ReelHouse (they’re both owned by the same team), only it’s not as good looking on the inside, and it’s got a worse view of the city. While those two things alone are probably enough for other places to end up in restaurant therapy, this Charlestown spot just keeps dishing out $120 shellfish platters with a side of champagne. Admittedly, a little bubbly from time to time can help with optimism.
The view at Pier 6, just like the food, is above average - certainly nothing you’d complain about if you have, hypothetically, spent the last six months quarantined in a tiny apartment. But really the best part about Pier 6 is the free boat ride that you can take over to ReelHouse, which does have the best view of the city. So grab a drink at Pier 6, then scuttle over to ReelHouse for a snack. Rinse and repeat until the sun sets, or at least until the captain catches on.
