A short walk from the Marriott, we dined at Boston's Chart House on Long Wharf. Very pleasant staff guided us to the tables upstairs, where there remains a colonial rustic ambiance of exposed brick and beam. Someone mentioned that the building once belonged to John Hancock himself. It was pleasant to the eyes, but less so to the nose, as... More

Lousy Service, unmotivated and not very friendly. Air Condition much too cold, we were freezing and windy as on the boat cruise. Orders always came much too late - read when finished with the salad, wine when finished with the main course. Atmosphere therefore not really good. Food was okay, a pitty for the cooks with these waitresses.

The stafff here are very friendly and very helpful. The food and service were darn good too. We were here for a convention and actually only stopped in for a drink and ended up almost closing the place down. The bartenders did a great job of waiting on us and our food was spot on. the deserts and entree's both... More

I took my family, wife, two sons, two daughter-in laws and 5 month old grand daughter on a trip to Boston. We made reservations to cap our trip off on the final night at Chart House in Boston, Mass. I was glad we did so as everyone, including one of my daughter in laws that is a vegetarian. It was... More

This is a very quaint and historic landmark located at the Wharf in Boston. The menu has wonderful choices of beef, fowl and fresh seafood. We chose the baked scrod with a crunchy, butter stuffing filled with large pieces of fresh lobster meat and Yukon gold mashed potatoes. The meal was absolutely, melt in your mouth delicious.

This restaurant is right in the heart of a very busy area in Boston. Their service is Buick, food above average. Prices is what you would expect at a higher end restaurant. Would recommend this place to family and friends.

We ate here two times in a three day stay. Best clam chowder ever! Great service (Joseph for lunch and Jose for dinner). Didn't need a reservation. This is the oldest building on Long Wharf and originally served as an office building for John Hancock.

After a boat cruise, we ate a late lunch here. Our server was very good. Had a trio of soups, which were tasty, and mussels that were larger and fresher-tasting than I'd had the day before in Portland.

We were waiting for dessert, having had a nice meal when two of us were pelted by a white creamy liquid. A dollop even landed in my hair. With the huge, high ceilings in the restaurant, my first thought was "do they have birds in the rafters?, yuk. Possessing a good sense of smell, I realized it was horseradish sauce... More

We had lunch at the Chart House after enjoying a Boston Harbour cruise. Usama served us and was as miserable as sin itself. Such a shame as the venue, cocktails and food were lovely. He spoilt the experience.

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.
