James Hook & Co. is a family-owned restaurant in Boston offering the best live lobsters, lobster dinners and fresh seafood available.

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.
