A Visit to the Oldest Restaurant in America

Having opened its doors in 1826, the Union Oyster House is America’s oldest restaurant of continuous service.

The building is over three hundred years old, and it’s actually the only restaurant in America that is a national historic landmark.

You will find so much history inside. Like the Kennedy Booth, dedicated to President Kennedy who was a frequent visitor. As well as Webster’s Den, dedicated to Daniel Webster, another frequent visitor.

The signature trademark of The Union Oyster House is the oyster bar, which started in 1826. It’s the focal point – it’s where it started and continues to be an important and demanded place to enjoy your meal.

We suggest starting with the Mussels, steamed with garlic and white wine and served with a side of garlic bread.

If you’re looking to add some Italian to your seafood, then you should try the Lobster Ravioli or the Lobster Scampi. Both are the perfect combination.

A little spice has been added to the Union Oyster House menu in recent years due to Milano’s tie to Thailand. When Milano visited the country in 1985, he realized that the then-king of Thailand had been born in Cambridge, and he petitioned to have a corner near Harvard Square designated in the king’s honor. As an act of appreciation in return, the Kingdom of Thailand named Milano its consul general in Boston.

To get in on the spice action, get the Oven Roasted Ribs Thai style to give you the perfect kick.

If you’re hungry for history, you must come experience it at Union Oyster House, because the food is Number 1.
