I believe this building used to be owned by John Hancock. There is inside and outside seating. The front patio that overlooks the harbor is way better than the back patio which overlooks the parking lot. If you purchased a ticket on the Old Town Trolley, you will have a coupon from their map that gives you a free appetizer... More

We stopped in for a late lunch on a busy Sunday afternoon. We ate on the patio/terrace as the sea breeze was really nice and the people watching fabulous. I had a crab cake on salad which was delicious and my husband had stuffed red snapper that was also very good. The prices were a bit high, but you also... More

My husband and I are were strolling on the waterfront during the fourth of July weekend. We stopped in the Chart House on a busy 3rd of July evening and they were very polite to accommodate us with no reservation. We sat in the main dining room on the second floor - beautiful old historic building. Rob our waiter was... More

Fish dry, service slow, definitely not impressed. Oh and did I mention that it's expensive? And I hate it when they point out that tips are not included...

It was Saturday night (730pm) peak season and very busy (disclaimer). Our waiter was friendly (although he tried to take our desert order when we order appetizers). We wanted to love this place because we live 10 mins away and love being near the water. Our appetizers (soup and coconut shrimp) took 45 mins and our main course was over... More

Stopped here while passing through Boston on recommendation of my sister, who lived in the city for several years. I ordered just a quick sampling of their menu, New England Clam Chowder and Lobster and Shrimp springrolls. All I can say is "wow!" - there is a reason why this restaurant draws thousands every year. Food was fantastic. Our waiter... More

The Chart House is a great location right on the wharf. I was surprised that it was so cold sitting outside though. There is no sun under the "awning" so make sure you bring a sweater or coat - even on a 90 degree day. The chowdah was delicious. I heard the crab cakes were yummy but didn't try it... More

A great lunch. Had the lobster stuffed scrod which was a wonderful meal. The only reason I did not give this 5 stars was that the waitstaff was not very attentive, but overall, great

Service and food as expected from this chain. Always delivers, but at a price. Good location on long wharf.

We had been whale watching and decided that our hunger needed fixing. This resaurant is right on the harbour and looks great from the outside. We had some cocktails to start (Fiery Cucumber - recommeded)and then followed with some really good shimps served with a variety of dipping sauces. For main course we had burgers and salad and both were... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
