I didn't know the history of this restaurant until we arrived. The building was originally John Hancock's counting house, which I assume is basically a bank. There is a wall safe in the back of the restaurant that was the original home of the Declaration of Independence! Such a great feeling to be in a historical place. The service was... More

On Long Wharf next to the Harbor. Near the Aquarium and Quincy Market. We had dinner after having taken a harbor cruise. Good service and great prime rib and creamed spinach. Landry's can be inconsistent, but this experience was fine.

Typical Chart House. This one has access by boat so its fun to go there. Relaxed atmosphere. Can have complete dinner at the bar which is nice sometimes when you just want to get in and out. always have the rib eye. It is not as good as Capitol Grill but they do a good job.

Went in here for lunch on Sunday while in between tours. We were short on time, which lessened the experience for us, because we would have loved to have been a little more relaxed. This place is beautiful on the inside! Original huge wooden beams, John Hancock's safe, original staircase. Our waiter (Vladimir) was so nice in helping us because... More

The service, the food, the atmophere was all top notch. Everything was fresh and well prepared. My only small complaint is we had tickets to do a trolly and boat tour and did not find out the Chart House gives a 10% discount. That would have been nice to know before we ate by them not as we were getting... More

Excellent and delicious steak dinner and delicious volcano chocolate cake and ice cream dessert. This building belonged to John Hancock and held his offices. We sat right next to the safe where the Declaration of Independence was once held. On the wharf, so looks out at boats. Outdoor patio as well. Highly recommend.

Spent the day playing tourist in the city. Stopped at the Chart House for dinner after a Harbor Cruise. Had swordfish and it was amazing and he had the blackened grouper, which he loved - service was great as usual and we even had a little history lesson about some of the people who have been in that building.

Other than the great location and the historic setting, there really isn't much to say. It has traditional fare--which is fine--but nothing really stuck out as exceptional.

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.
