The clam chowder was great. The burger and chicken salad was average. The view of the harbor was okay. The wait staff was very friendly though.

The Boston Sail won 2018 Best of Boston for their clam chowder, it is made with a ton of dill. Very good. I only gave 4 stars because sitting at the bar you can see how dirty their glasses are.
