I had a late lunch here after visiting the aquarium. The service was good, the clam chowder was delicious and plentiful, and the place was beautiful and clean. Since I was there at around 4:00pm, there weren't too many people and the place was quiet. I would like to go back for dinner. It must be beautiful at night, and... More

I had a table booked for 7.45 on Saturday 20th May and arrived 15 minutes early to find people queuing out the door. When I eventually got to the reception desk I was told they were running late and it would be another 15 minutes. There were people everywhere and the atmosphere was getting heated as people had been waiting... More

The food here is divine. The lobster bisque is heavenly. I also had coconut shrimps and crab cake with ginger rice. Wonderful is an understatement. Very friendly waitress and great location on the harbour. Totally amazing

Just called in on the off chance before embarking on the harbour tour. The food was excellent and the service was first class. We ended staying for a good hour & half. Would recommend the place to eat in this area.

I booked this restaurant for a wedding anniversary dinner as we wanted something special and it had received some excellent reviews on TA. Our first impressions weren't amazing as the service from the hostess upon arrival was polite enough but also a bit dismissive and our first drinks which we wanted to enjoy outside (as the weather was warm) took...

I had the braised short rib with scallops w/ginger sauce and mashed potatoes. My husband ordered a dish that the waitress helped him get that is not on the menu, seared scallops with mashed potatoes.

The location of the Chart House is GREAT! The food was good, but not great...which is what I would expect considering the price!!! Wouldn't go there again if I went back to Boston.

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.
