Let's face it, everyone only goes up here for the views right? It's certainly not for the surly staff. We went late one afternoon after a day walking around, so were dressed in comfortable clothes, but it was long before the after-work/evening dinner crowd would arrive, but the way the host looked us up and down, you'd think someone dragged...

Had a drink at the bar with a Boston creme pie. Service was great, food was delicious and if I could I would go back to have dinner sitting at the window. The views that I could see from the bar were gorgeous.

My friend took me here for lunch. It does have an incredible view. The food was average but $$, it was kind of spoiled by our server who seemed bothered by having to be working that day. I would really just go back for the view.

While I was visiting my daughter in Boston she decided to take me to this place. Great spot to stop by for dinner and drinks! Definitely a little pricey but the view is amazing. Would recommend to people visiting the city.

It is expensive but no more so than other city centre bars. The barmaid was really friendly and helped choose some different choices of local beers. Nice... More

Stop by for a few drinks or food as everything is good here. Much better than paying the fee for the skywalk as you get the same view with no fee & good drinks/ food. 360 degree view of city.

We stopped in to have a drink and see the amazing view of the entire city. They could use some work on customer service. The host / hostess were rather busy in conversation so took awhile to acknowledge us, and when they did the host gave us the impression we were inconveniencing them. The room was practically empty at the... More

The view was really amazing and we were lucky to have a clear weather as well! The food was really really tasteful, except for the desert (a cake with coconut ice cream) that we didn't really like. The menu was a bit overpriced though. We really enjoyed our evening there. Totally recommended either for a drink or lunch/dinner.

We came here for a drink before dinner so I can't comment on the food but you really do get a stunning view of Boston from the 52nd floor of the Prudential Tower. We just had a drink each and paid about $25. You can't book in the drinks area so worth getting here early - there was a queue... More

We went during a snowy evening in Boston which was the only reason there were any tables available. It was okay - we only went for drinks ($24 minimum per person. It was beautiful overlooking Boston but I'm thinking that paying $16 to go on the skywalk would be cheaper and more fun. I'll save that for our next visit!... More
