We were very excited about this place only to be disappointed. On arrival to Boston we went in and booked a table for the following evening. When we got there they hadn't allocated us a table by the window (it's the 52nd floor with amazing views this is why we came), despite tables being free they wouldn't move us (they... More

Even if it's only for drinks. We went there for drinks, ended up staying for dinner and live music. Such a great atmosphere. Beautiful views of Boston. Try the mango peach martini. Yum. And I ordered the Kobe Beef hot dog sliders. Amazing.

For an indoor observatory on the 50th floor out of only 52, the admission is a bit overpriced. For like $23 bucks you can go to the top of the Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore. Save your $16 and spend it at the restaurant or bar upstairs and take your pictures there.

At Top of the Hub, the above average dishes doesn't match up to the million dollar views of Boston. They don't have the best high end food in the hub but the spectacular views of the city and the Madison Avenue style shopping at Copley Place and "The Pru" will make up for the food and the pretty penny you...

Top of the Hub is a cafe/restaurant is in Prudential tower right above the Skywalk Observatory which is fee based. Instead of paying the fee you can just go to Top of the Hub and enjoy a cup of coffee and look at the Boston skyline. I go there whenever friends come to town, everyone seems to like it. Food...

Really great service and the view is amazing. Most likely need a reservation. You are really paying for the amazing view- the food is good, but its not the most amazing steak I've ever had.

Anyone who doesn't love their experience here is missing the spirit of Boston. This restaurant is a GEM! Several reasons. 1st, it is very reasonable. Three of us went and has a 3 course special they were serving. Options includes a wonderful seafood appetizer, a superbly cooked steak, and a quite respectable creme brulee - all for about $40 a...

The view of Boston from Top of the Hub is awesome. I recently went as part of a work trip and left with quite mixed feelings. Overall, I believe I would go back for just drinks, possibly an appetizer, just to enjoy the view. Otherwise, there are plenty of restaurants I'd rather eat at. The food was part of a... More
