We stopped in for an early dinner as this is one of our favorite restaurants in Boston. I enjoyed a glass of Clifford Bay Sauvignon Blanc (New Zealand) in the bar with the Lobster and Mango spring rolls. They were very tasty and the sauce had some nice heat. The order was enough to share with my husband who shared... More

In the old days the place had a nautical feel. There were navigational charts and other reminders of how close you were to Boston harbor. Over the last few years new owners have taken over. The decor is now more upscale with white tablecloths and abstract art on the walls. We came for an early dinner on a Sunday night,... More

The restaurant is one of many historical buildings in Boston and offers some excellent food. The servers were fast, friendly, and efficient. The food was flavorful, and well prepared.

I travel through Boston every year and on my return trip I always call in here for the amazing lobster and fantastic starters. Set by the marina this is a poplar restaurant so book in advance and stick to order the lobster as it's the best in town. The Alaskan King Crab is great too but unfortunately it gets cold... More

We have been going here since the 70's. First date, engagement, graduations, romantic dinners. This was the first time it was a disaster from start to finish. Waited in line for valet parking for half an hour, then told no spots. Would not validate the $39.00 parking we had to pay. Went inside, with a reservation, told we would have... More

We always loved the chart House and this time we chose to celebrate our 1st year anniversary here as well. When we drove to the valet, he was very pleasant and took our car to park and we did not need to worry about it foe the rest of the night. Hostess was very pleasant and said "Happy Anniversary" right... More

Cozy, softly lit place, old building that retains a lot of character. I tried a lobster sandwich which was delicious, washed down with a couple of pints of Sam Adams.

We stopped in for a light lunch as it was cold outside and needed food and warmth. We also got a history lesson and basically had the place to ourselves for the short time we were there. I believe we all had lobster bisque and shrimp cocktail. Absolutely delicious and our waitress was most accommodating and answered many questions about... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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 your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
