Great lunch

Great clam chowder (though in Boston, you've got to expect that). Good ceaser salad for main course, filling, crisp and tasty. Absolutely amazing "hot chocolate lava cake" for pudding. Needs ordering 30 minutes beforehand, so order when you order your main. Not for small appetites. Only... read more

The restaurant is very close to the harbour cruise gate and will always attract customers disembarking the harbour boats. We stayed at the Marriote on Long Warf and had a quick lunch and drink at the restaurant. When we returned a couple of nights later, at about 9, there were many empty tables but were told we need to wait... More

At the bar on Memorial Day for just a drink around mid-afternoon. Bartenders were almost sullen. Ok, I get it , no one wants to work on a holiday...but this is the hospitality industry. Even after a $5.00 tip on two drinks that came to $15.00...not even a 'thank you' or 'have a nice day' when we left. The hostess... More

My husband and I came to Boston for a short getaway. This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we found it to be fabulous! Just a short walk from our hotel. My husband had the whole lobster and I had an unbelievable parmesan encrusted snapper topped with crab in a wine sauce. Prior to our meal we had ahi... More

Had a group dinner here for approximately 100 people. Location is good, setting was nice but food was mediocre at best. Choices were chicken dish, prime rib, or lobster stuffed cod. I had the cod which tasted like a frozen dinner. A colleague had the chicken which she said was poor. The starter was a Caesar salad which was soggy... More

Nice location on the water. Chilean sea bass was very good but not the best I have ever had which was at the Ocean Club in Columbus, Ohio. Gazpacho recipes can vary by region and the gazpacho here was very chunky and was more like a salsa than a soup. I personally prefer a less chunky and more soup like... More

Went to the Chart House with 3 friends who I have not seen for a couple of years. We wanted time to chat, unobtrusive staff, good food and rinks. We got exactly this. My food was very good, even though it's a fish restaurant I had a steak which was cooked the way I asked and came with nice sides.... More

Friday evening with a reservation, seated quickly, although next to the open kitchen. Not intrusive, as it was enjoyable seeing the various dishes go out--they all looked good. Nice historic atmosphere, though a bit noisy for conversation. All our food was good, including chowder, prime rib, stuffed haddock, cream spinach and lava cake. The baked stuffed shrimp with crabmeat was... More
