A group of us from the downtown hostel were out on a Friday night pub crawl. By now we were all getting to really know each other and 3 of us were sharing Yuengling beer pitchers here. This was a friendly,lively place. We ended up heading upstairs before we left so the guys could shoot some pool. This is the... More

Our first night in Boston, we had no idea where to go. We stumbled upon this place while exploring the downtown area. What a great find! The staff was super friendly, the bar patrons were friendly and full of life. The doorman not only worked the door but danced and sang and provided a great lively atmosphere. Later in the... More

Has to be my 5th or more visit and always enjoy. Was here on my own this trip which gives a different perspective.. waitress was friendly and helpful with dinner choice. I did lobster roll special which was delish .. oh, Harpoon IPA is always good reason to dine here.

Better than average bar food. Local hangout. Great bar tender Mike! Flew in from Ft. Lauderdale to see the Dolphin/Patriot game. Went to Hub for a bite to eat as we were exhausted and this was close to our hotel. Went in with my Miami Dolphin Jersey still on hoping we would still get served! Wound up having blast with...

Enjoyed an evening with fantastic dinner and drinks at Hub Pub. Our server was very friendly. Pool tables upstairs and a baseball game on the television made for fun times!

While looking for a quick place to have lunch, we found this place around the corner from our hotel. The food was your typical bar food, but good and filling.

Just popped in for lunch and some refreshment. Couple of cold beers in a nice relaxed atmosphere and a great BBQ Chicken Sandwich - good prices too. Table service a bit slow but no major drama.

We just stumbled upon this place while we were trying to explore Boston in the rain. They advertised lobster rolls, so we went on in! The food was excellent! The place is old but has an old Boston, historic feel to it. The restrooms are downstairs so if someone had a disability, that may be difficult for them. It was... 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.
