Stopped here for lunch while exploring Quincey Market. I ordered the hot buttered lobster roll and the chowder in a bread bowl. Both were incredibly rich and delicious. It was a little bit of a wait, but definitely worth it.

The food was good but a little bland and the clams in the chowda were small and far from plentiful. Overall this place is definitely over priced. I'd look at a local pub next time.

The Clam Chowder was pretty good and was nice and hot. Wasn't as impressed with the lobster roll ,but the Chowder was good.

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
