Good for lunch and breakfast

Always a good choice for lunch outside in the summer and for breakfast anytime. Just stayed at the hotel this weekend and enjoyed our breakfast at the hotel - my favorite is the corned beef hash!

We recently dined at the Rowes Sea Wharf Grille for the Macallan Dinner event. We were about 30 minutes early so we (group of 9) bellied up to the bar for a cocktail while we waited.

The Sea Grill offers reasonably priced well-prepared seafood in a very comfortable setting. The preparations are simple enough to allow the seafood to shine through. The dining room is very comfortable and some seats have excellent views of the waterfront. Service is very good. There is a low noise level, so conversation is easy.

Boston seafood is excellent...so very fresh. The restaurant was friendly and comfortable. The fish was excellent. Side dishes are, as is the case in most hotel restaurants, packaged ahead for re-heating and delivered lack luster flavor ... but the seafood delivered and the wine offerings were sufficient to the task.

It was a beautiful restaurant located in the Boston Harbor Hotel. The furniture was elegant and atmosphere quiet enough to converse easily. The food was delicious and portions generous. The waiter and chef were very attentive to food allergies and made the meals delicious in the process. Service was excellent.

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.
