Boston has always been a seafood town, both in terms of economy and diet. The value of our state’s annual seafood catch is second in the nation only to Alaska. There are 58 seafood businesses in a 1.25 mile radius in South Boston. We even have a “sacred cod” hanging in the State House. But which of the city’s innumerable seafood restaurants are the most popular?
Thanks to data from check-in app Swarm, we were able to find out which seafood restaurants people checked into the most from Wednesday, April 20 to Tuesday, April 26.
For those unfamiliar, Swarm is an app from Foursquare that lets users check in when they visit locations like restaurants, bars, and parks. The app also makes every day a game with perks like coins and mayorships, and lets users keep track of streaks and places they’ve been with an updated profile tab.
Without further ado, here are the most-visited seafood restaurants in Boston.
