Located close to Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market. Even though it's in the tourist area the restaurant did not feel like your typical " tourist trap". Service was fast, food was good and the portions were huge. I ordered steak tips and it felt like...More

Located near Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, this very busy restaurant/bar could use some updating. The stale smell of beer permeates the premises. Service is good and the food is adequate.

We had substantial, tasty sandwiches for lunch, for just a little over $10. Yet this place is right on the edge of the Faneuil Hall complex, and close to many tourist attractions. Service was matter-of-fact, but cordial and efficient. All in all, quite a good...More

Clarke's is what looks like a typical bar that happens to have food. Wrong. It's a typical bar that has GOOD food. Been for lunch at least once a month and sometimes more. Excellent burgers - recommend the A-1 burger - but the salads are...More

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
