I come here every time I visit Boston - once I got the lobster roll, but the last two times I’ve gotten the lobster Mac and cheese. Both are great but the Mac and cheese is a category all of its own!

Absolutely loved the clam chowder bread bowl!! It was so delicious, and worth every penny! I would get it again and again and again. Everything else on the menu sounded good as well. I will certainly return!

Wow! The New England Clam Chowder in the bread bowl was amazing! I could have stood there all day eating that Chowder. The only down side to the Market is that seating was very limited and we stood and ate all of our food. That...More

Got the $22 combo that included a lobster roll, choice of soup and a drink. Sampled the lobster bisque and it was great. Fast and friendly service

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
