Went there for dinner had the lobster roll and corn chowder. Both were very tasty and filling. Would have given 5 but the girl working was very rude and seemed not happy to be at work.

Dropped by Quincy Market as part of a tour, and bought their clam chowder and lobster roll combo (with drink). One heck of a deal for $25!

We visited the location in Faneuil Hall and were not disappointed! The clam chowder was creamy and delicious and several other soup options were available. We also had the hot buttered lobster roll, another tasty choice! They offer several other options, as well as different...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
