Compared to the other food options, I think we got the most 'bang for our buck'. We did not experience long lines as others have stated. However, I ordered a Haddock Pie for myself, Lobster Mac Cheese for my wife and paid. Then a few...More

After have several meals of Italian in the North end and a cooler day. A good cup of soup sounded great. The corn Chowda didn’t disappoint. Enjoyed the visit of Quincy market and fanuli hall after dinner made for a fun evening.

There was a long line, but it moved very quickly. We had the cold lobster roll, crab salad roll, and cup of clam chowder. Everything was delicious!!

Our first stop after arriving in Boston. We were quite surprised at the southern hospitality in this Quincy Market food stand. Great chowder bread bowl!

Clam Chowda was good, but not great. Legal Seafood was great. My husband is a clam chowder connoisseur. Boston Chowda was good, don't get me wrong, but not as great as all the reviews. Still give it a try. Everyone's palates are different.

We jumped off the Old Town Trolley and I got one of their lobster rolls. The bun was perfectly toasted and buttered. The Lobster meat was perfectly cooked and delish. I would visit this place regularly.

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
