Boston Bert’s Seafood

26 Aug

Corner of Indianola and Blenheim (Keith’s Sunoco) in Clintonville

Clintonville has had a secret haute mobile food scene for quite some time that was largely off the radar.  Most people think of Ray Ray’s Hog Pit BBQ as the first Clintonville cart. Such is not the case. There was another cart at Weber and Indianola which burned down in 2008.   Then there was a burger and hot dog cart at the corner of Blenheim and Indianola (Keith’s Sunoco) for nearly a decade which was recently replaced by Boston Bert’s Seafood.

Boston Bert’s is open Monday to Saturday from 10:30 am to 6:00 pm.  The owners are Bert and Katie Merrill, ably assisted by Chef Bob Slatter.  Orders can be phoned in at 614 306 8212.  The menu includes:  beer batter fish and chips, shrimp Po’ Boys, roast beef sandwiches, fried bologna sandwiches, burgers, chowder and hush puppies.  They also have the Bloomin’ Onion for you Outback Steakhouse fans.  The cart is swarmed with Marzetti employees at about 11:30 am as they make their lunch and shift breaks from the plant across the street. Katie makes the carts “secret sauce” and their is word she would like to have the Marzetti plant add her sauce to their line. In the meantime, drop in and see them for your fried seafood fix.

Be advised, the trailer goes mobile during OSU home games and fairs during the summer so call ahead during warm weather Saturdays to make sure they are in Clintonville.

    This place is great! I eat there about once every two weeks, as I live in Blenheim Road. Nice server and huge portions for the price. Walking over to the Sunoco getting a Rockstar energy drink perfects my lunch.

      Yes. Boston Bert’s is still open. They serve lunch and early dinner during the week and do some weekend events.

        Ok because we tried to go yesterday around noon and the truck wasn’t there…

        Still open. I drive by everyday on my way home from work. Hours are variable but I see them open consistently during the week.
