I had a cold lobster roll. Lots of lobster (some shells still in it) but no flavor. Was disappointed.

Mmmmmm. You have to try the hot buttered lobster roll. I was torn on where to eat lunch. I don’t get to come to Boston very often. Boston Chowda is always a great choice.

Had the traditional new England chowder- went back a second day! SO good. Friendly service too. Price was average and completely worth it. They offered a variety of flavors if chowder . A friend had the lobster bisque- reports it was great too.

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
