We visited the Faneuil Market Location on a holiday weekend... it was packed, but the Buttered Lobster Roll was worth it. I'm not sure if its always this packed, or if it was just because it was a holiday weekend.... Either way, its a must!

It was raining and the hot lobster roll, clam chowder and Mac'n cheese warmed our tummies!! It was so good, with the garlic butter generously on that lobster roll. The clam chowder was just right, not too thick.

A stall in Quincey Market, this gave us the best hot lobster roll we had in Boston during a week's stay. The chowder was delicious as well, but the lobster roll is the star!

Both the clam and lobster chowders passed the taste test for these Nova Scotians at Boston Chowda in Quincy Market. Both chowders were delicious and had lots of clams and lobster.

Ordered a medium bowl of Clam Chowder and a Lobster Roll and it ran about $25. Not a cheap lunch. Clam Chowder was good, but average. Lobster Roll had plenty of lobster meat on a fresh roll. Hit the spot.

This place was amazing! I had it on my saved trip list because of the ratings but didn't actually visit until the last day and almost didn't go! We decided to just stop into Quincy Market. Don't let any of the other places distract you,...More
