We ate here our last night in Boston and wish we'd eaten here more often. It is right in the back of the Marriott Long Wharf Harbor Hotel and it is in a perfect location. The atmosphere is so warm and inviting. Service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. I had the seafood sampler which is small portions of... More

Recommended by our hotel Concierge, we enjoyed our evening at this popular restaurant. Surroundings and art work are very good and the old dockside warehouse charm was evident. Menu choice was extensive. We chose the sea food dishes and had a great meal.

My wife and I had an anniversary dinner here. The food was fantastic, the ambiance was great. It was a little quiet on a Tuesday evening, perfect for us. I had the lobster stuffed scrod, she had grilled tilapia with some seasoning. We split the side of creamed spinach. I had been here years ago for work and remembered the... More

Staff, food and atmosphere are all superb, we really enjoy eating here every time we stay in Boston. Seafood is very fresh as there is a high turnover of patrons. Great spot on harbour side, super ambience.

We went for lunch and there was hardly anybody there . I think we got there just after opening. Good waiter. I had the Lobster Stuffed Scrod which was good.

We hadn't been to the Chart House for around 8 years and thought we would walk over and have dinner. Now we remember why we hadn't been back. We sat at the bar. The servers were professional and attentive and the drinks good. We both ordered a fresh fish blackened with baked potato. The food couldn't have been more bland.... More

We saw this beautiful building while on the Harbor Walk and decided to try it for lunch. The food was excellent. My wife had Lobster Stuffed Scrod and I had Coconut Shrimp with Crab Cakes. Everything was delicious. Our waiter gave us a history lesson about the building which is the second oldest in Boston. Lots of history with John... More

We had a really enjoyable meal here once we'd been processed by the robots at the front desk. Our hotel had made a reservation for us but either they or the restaurant had got it wrong and booked us in for the following night. After a lot of talking amongst themselves and looking for inspiration from not one but two... More

We get it--busy tourist places can be slow. But being seated almost an hour after reservation time, and an impossibly full bar tended by a couple guys who never look up-- this is the sign of place that knows you'll be gone tomorrow and some other schmuck will take your place. Food is fine. Wait staff ok not exceptional( ie... More

We went to this restaurant twice during our stay in Boston and I had the exact same meal both times! The prime rib was outstanding, I couldn't bring myself to order anything else.
