The Chart House in Boston is an excellent upscale-yet casual, restaurant. This chain is part of the Landry's food network. The atmosphere is amazing (overlooking the Boston harbor) and the food and service are top notch. The Clam Chowder may be the best you will ever try, and they are known for their seafood and prime rib. The Chart House... More

We ate here because it was next door to our hotel! (Marriott Long Wharf) This was a very pleasant dining experience! The menu selections are mainly seafood with some "high-cuisine" choices. We both went for seafood and were not disappointed! The service was good and the food came out in a reasonable amount of time! There were medium priced wine... More

I have been visiting this restaurant on trips from England to Boston for over 20 years. Had I been writing this review based on previous visits I would have rated it 4 a 4 or 5 but based on my visit with friends in late December 2016 I am struggling to give it a two! This used to be a... More

I love the seafood offerings at The Chart House. Well prepared and tasty. I have had just about everything on the menu over the years, except anything that flies or moos. The service is great, not hovering. My family goes on Christmas Eve and we always have a joyful time.

The Chart House's location is beautiful. Unlike any other restaurant, the Chart House offers prime views over the harbour and port. Located right on the waters edge, it is a bit chilly in the winter. The restaurant was buzzing downstairs and the food was amazing! I enjoyed the panko chicken breast and my friend had the crispy coconut shrimp which... More

We have visited Boston on a number of occasions and have eaten at least one meal at the chart house on each visit. We had difficulty finding a restaurant for New Years Eve but managed to get a booking at the Chart House. We arrived a little early and were seated 5mins after our booked time. The food was good...

So, at some point, this restaurant tanked. How do you take a historic eatery, in a historic building, in the birthplace of our freedom, and make it mediocre? I guess you open a chain of them. This is the second time our reservation was not timely honored. We had to wait for our table. It was a Saturday night, and... More

Good location in a really old building. Difficult for wait staff as the kitchen is on first floor but restaurant has three floors

Visited here late November. Arrived without making a reservation and were accommodated in the downstairs restaurant area. Although we dined downstairs, upstairs sounded quite noisy, so if you're looking for a quieter atmosphere downstairs dining is recommended. The food was fresh and uncomplicated. Money wise this restaurant is on par with other eateries, a couple, one course with a cocktail... 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.
