My friend and I enjoyed a long, relaxing lunch at the Chart House. We came late afternoon and it was perfect. Not crowded at all. Joseph, our delightful waiter, engaged us immediately with his overview of the fine menu. We both enjoyed the delicious lobster bisque! I had the Prime Beef Dip sandwich and my friend had a lobster roll... More

The restaurant is located on the Wharf; it is a very nice old building with a lot of history, which gives a special feel once inside. We liked that the tables were not too close together, so that we did not have a crowded feel. Our waiter was very friendly, helpful and efficient; menu is giving a good choice, the... More

So the food was good, and the service friendly and efficient. Decent wine list for a chain place, and great old building. But seriously, what was up with the loud and completely inappropriate music? It nearly drove us away before sitting down. Seemed to be more for the benefit of the staff than the customers... I won't be back...

I've eaten at several Chart House's, but I like that they don't feel like a chain. The food is always top notch. I had prime rib, and my daughter had filet mignon. The meat was cooked just right. The Oysters were great. The cheese cake was fantastic. I liked that the tables werent super close together. The room didn't have... More

We have dined at the Chart House several times over the years, and each visit is better than the last. We held a dinner there for our son's graduation, and the staff was incredible! You cannot ask for a better location for fine dining than the the Long Wharf. A great way to wrap up the day after experiencing the... More

Started with the Autumn Salad which was a wonderful start to the meal followed with Boston Cod and for a side dish, the best creamed spinach ever?

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.
