The food here is ok. I really didn't eat anything because I was not hungry. The food I did eat was 4.2 stars. There was a crowd watching a street performer. That was just ridiculous to me. The actual building was good. X rating 3.2

“Was disappointed with Faneuil Hall”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

The area surrounding the Hall, is probably not so bad. I did not have much time to explore the area. Faneuil Hall itself is just filled with touristy booth and no history. After being inside I just figured to move on to another area then check out what else was right there. I was told there are many good places to eat right in that area, though.

If you are in Boston you have to go to Faneuil Hall. There are lots of restaurants and bars, food stalls to go, shops and stalls. The buskers are fantastic too.

“The place to stop for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

There is not much to look at in the actual Faneuil market. You can buy your souvenirs here with plenty of selection . The main reason to stop here is the location near many sights and the enormous variety of food vendors in Quincy market next door. Especially if you have a group, it is a great place to accommodate all tastes. And during the summer there are always street performers outside.
