We stopped here for some drinks. We sat at the bar and had a few drinks. The service was good and the beer was good. No complaints from me

AJ offered his suggestions and they were spot on. We started with a dozen Chatham oysters that were so good we never used the sauce they came with. My wife had the appetizer version of the mussels which are cooked in a white wine,garlic,butter and caper sauce. This unique addition of capers really set off the mussels. They were better... More

This was a very different setup, although very comfortable. We had drinks while waiting for the last couple in our group and our waiter was spot on. He was attentive but not overbearing. The six in our group all ordered different items and all were great. A nice place to relax and have good food and food!

Four friends having a reunion enjoyed a delicious lunch here on a chilly rainy day. Our server was friendly. We enjoyed hot chowder and cold beer along with some good fried cod. We had to have fried cod at the Salty Dog. The atmosphere is what one would hope for in this location. It is downstairs, and close quarters, but... More

My husband and I stopped here for a quick bite for lunch. It's across from Faneuil Hall so it's a little touristy. Our food was good, not great, but service was pleasant. We were able to sit outside which was nice.

The restaurant is under the Quincy market and we were told is the longest standing tenant of the market. We sat in the last little room that feels like the hull of an old boat which was neat. I ordered grilled shrimp with rice/ beans and coleslaw. The shrimp was just ok. It wasn't hot and wasn't overly flavourful but... More

We stopped here as we were looking for a seafood meal that was sit down and not fast food. Had the bacon wrapped scallops as an appetizer. They were good although heavy on the bacon... I had the fish and chips which was fish pieces fried with fries. It's was very average. I would strongly recommend the seafood bake which... More

We were visiting Boston, and my 10 year old son really wanted fried shrimp. Boston has great seafood, but fried shrimp is almost impossible to find. We happened to discover this restaurant at the Fanueill Hall Market. We discovered that they served baskets of fried, shrimp, oysters, etc. I ordered a Cajun seasoned grilled fishsandwich. Our meal was delicious! Highly... More

The lunch entrees are somewhat expensive, but if you want to eat lighter fare, you can order half a sandwich and soup/salad, or even better, share a sandwich. We shared the roast beef with swiss cheese and it was very tasty. My husband ordered clam chowder and said it was ok, nothing special.

We had lunch here yesterday and the special - 1/2 sandwich and a mug of soup - was perfect. Also can't speak highly enough of the bacon-wrapped scallops. CLAM chowder was fantastic, as was the draft beer. Perfect location near Faneuil Hall.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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 your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
