We ordered a quart of New England clam chowder and two of the cold lobster rolls, came to $50.00, so not a cheap lunch. Chowder was better than the rolls, we ate them, but did not understand the hype, maybe the warm lobster rolls with...More

My 4th visit to Boston since I discovered Boston Chowda at Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall. Thus, my fourth lobster roll from Boston Chowda. Still the best I have had in the city. Soaked in butter, they are very generous with the lobster meat and it’s served...More

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!

I continue to go back here for lunch. I always get the lobster roll and a cup of clam chowder. Both are terrific! I eat the sandwich on day one and save the soup for the next day because it is too much food for...More

My first time having lobster rolls and I was not let down. Fresh lobster, the roll was butter dipped so that was tantalizing. The New England clam chowder was fantastic. When I walked into the food hall, I essentially went with the place that had...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
