James Hook & Co. is a family-owned restaurant in Boston offering the best live lobsters, lobster dinners and fresh seafood available. We are a family business, managed by four siblings of the third generation of the Hook family. Many things have changed since we first started selling lobster in 1925, but one thing hasn't - our commitment to bringing quality lobster and seafood to our neighbors.
