“Great fun even on a brisk Boston afternoon.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

This is the place to go to walk around and pop in and out of the shops. Our favorite was going into the Godiva Chocolate store for a little indulgence. The choices of food in the main building is mind-boggling. There were so many different types of food that it to a while to make up our minds what to get. The smells and sights we music to the eyes and nose.

“Feels like Christmas the whole year round!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Lovelyyyyy place! Great food! One of the top MUST SEE places in Boston.... The lighting on the trees is so dramatic it feels like christmas everytime you visit the place. It creates a great ambience overall and the variety of food is a plus..... If in Boston don't ever miss this place!

“Do not miss!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

This should be in the top 5 things to see!! I live one hour outside Boston and head into the city at least 5 times a year. Faneuil Hall aka Quincy Market is my absolute favorite place. I love this history of the building and it has the best food in the city. It's like a food court, but not like the slop found at a standard mall. It's amazing from homemade clam chowder to Greek kabobs, to fudge. I always get a table up on the second floor- it's always packed and you often have to stand and wait for a table but they open up within 5-10 min with people always finishing their meal and leaving. It's nice to just sit for a while after you've eaten and people watch. I wrote a paper about this place for my college English class and it was just about the only paper I ever got an A on!

“Good for Souvenir Shopping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Quincy Market is good for souvenir shopping as well as dinning. When I arrived in Boston in January, it was freezing. I happened to find the market behind the tourist information centre and found a good cap with earmuffs for $20 (worth $40). It was a bargain!
