Back Bay Seafood has a unique "time slot" ordering system. It is based on first come first serve. This system is in effect for the dinner hours between 5 pm and 9 pm. Basically, it is a reservation for take out. We book in five minute intervals. For instance, you can call during the day with your order and give us a time. We will honor that time provided that someone else has not already reserved the slot. . Your meal will be prepared fresh out of the oven, fryer or off the stove at your exact pick up time. Customers are able to pick up uncooked and cooked product prior to 5 pm without a time slot reservation. As always, it is recommended to call ahead even before 5 pm as we make limited quantities of each item.



Back Bay Seafood will be a vendor once again at the Stone Harbor Farmers Market every Sunday from June until September 2018 from 8:30 am to 12 :30 pm. We will feature our award winning crab cakes along with signature dips, sauces and specialty seafood items.
