Well....I went there because I was craving a delicious sangria, and I happen to know this chain makes the best sangrias out there. Going out alone I swear I either cannot be left alone long enough to eat, or I don't get a chance because no one comes around. For this reason, I chose to be seated outside. As there... More

Did not eat at this HRC. Just wanted to hit it, buy a pin, and go. On a road trip for Spring Break. Restaurant has the usual HRC fare. The Rock Shop was one of the most diversified I've seen! Lots of choices!

We visited this restaurant on Patriots Day, around 1:00, 1:30pm for lunch. Our grandson had just finished his last radiation treatment at MGH. He was still sleeping when we arrived. He woke up just as our food was served. He was pretty fussy as he had been for the last week. As he was being walked around by all of... More

After a day of sightseeing in Boston, we wanted to wrap up the evening with a nice dinner . This place was highly overrated; it was overpriced for mediocre food. I guess we were paying for the name. The GLUTEN FREE menu options drew us into the place. We had to wait for over twenty minutes while there were several... More

Visiting Downtown Boston before a Red Sox game stopped in for a late lunch. Seating was quick and the server was friendly and attentive.

Hey Paul, thank you for stopping by the Hard Rock Cafe Boston and taking time to review. Yes, we love the Guinness Burger and think it pairs great with our Southern Rock handcrafted cocktail or, of course, a pint of Guinness!

I always like to venture to the Hard Rock Cafe's to pick up my collector pin from each one. This means I usually stop for a meal... like most Hard Rock's, the food is on the expensive side for what you get, but it's predictable, and sometimes that's all we want.

This was my first time here. I really enjoyed it. The margarita sampler was amazing. The waiter didn't know what flavor so they were which was kinda odd but food was good and great atmosphere!

No complaints about the service and the food was good, but the place is not as atmospheric as other Hard Rock Cafes we've visited. We were pretty much the only customers there, too.

I have visited Hard Rock cafes all over the US and this was my first time being disappointed. They sat us at a dirty table.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood 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.
