After my appointment at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center my mom, Jowanna, Kevin and I headed to Fish Pier on the waterfront of South Boston. Jowanna told us there is a famous restaurant located ron Fish Pier called No Name that I never tried. I was delighted to find the No Name Restaurant is wheelchair friendly and accessible.
No Name Restaurant owned by the Contos family has been serving fresh fish on the Fish Pier since 1917. This restaurant serves the freshest and most delicious seafood dishes we’ve ever tasted while offering great customer service and hospitality.
Upon arriving on Fish Pier we stopped in front of the No Name restaurant. We saw steps leading to the main entrance and then noticed the sign right in front clearly states “Handicapped Parking and Access are Located in the Rear of Building”. We drove to the rear of the building and parked our van in one of two handicap parking spaces located next to the rear entry door. The entry door is easy to find for a sign is located right in front.
As soon as we arrived at the rear entrance, Jimmy a very kind man greeted us and held the door open for us. He told us he does this for all customers in wheelchairs. We thanked him and asked a little about the history of the restaurant. It turns out that Jimmy is one of the owners. He told us the No Name restaurant has been owned by his family for 93 years. He also told us his brother is in a wheelchair and comes here to eat every Saturday.
Jimmy kindly showed us to a table in the dining room located right near rear entrance. All the tables in the dining room are of a perfect height for my chair. The decor is of old New England with nautical pictures and decorations hung on the wall. The dining room is well lit with plenty of windows and I had a great view of the waterfront.
Carlos, our server came over to take our order. He was very courteous, kind and friendly. We all chose a seafood dish that was fresh and delicious. My mom ordered a lobster salad and we were all amazed by the huge amount of freshly shucked lobster on top of her salad. We all tried a piece and it melted in our mouths because it was so tender and fresh.
The restrooms are spacious, wheelchair accessible and fully ADA compliant. The accessible sink if of a perfect height; I had no problem reaching the faucet or soap and hand towel dispenser.
Before leaving, Jimmy came and asked how are meals were. We told him our meals were the best and freshest seafood we’ve all tasted. Jimmy then gave each of us a bright yellow tee shirt with the No Name Restaurant label on it. We thanked him and told him how much we appreciated his kindness and wonderful hospitality.
If you’re in Boston I highly recommend the No Name Restaurant. No Name serves the freshest catches in Boston at very affordable prices. The atmosphere is casual and the service is fantastic!
I give the No Name Restaurant FIVE STARS for wheelchair accessibility. Jimmy and the employees all deserve FIVE STARS for kindness, sensitivity and hospitality. No Name’s fresh seafood is Five Stars Plus good! Thank you Jimmy!
