The Boston Street Cafe is a nice little restaurant and bar on Boston Street in Lynn. The restaurant is the perfect place to go if you want to grab some food but don't want to deal with the crowds of all the chain restaurants. I've never had to wait for a table and the wait staff is always very friendly. The food is always very good. They serve your typical American dishes, steak, chicken, salads, pasta, a few fish dishes, etc. On the weekends they have live music and they also have a full bar, which seems to do a fair amount of business.
The only disadvantage for the cafe is that it is not in the prettiest neighborhood. It sits right in front of a dirty old stream that sometimes smells. The parking is also not great.
