    Liz enjoying her Blue Lagoon (11/13/10)
    4 more images

    My wife and I were shopping in the Farmer's Market and the Faneuil Market when we decide to grab a bite to eat. I didn't feel like eating at one of the food hall stands so we decided to try this place out. I liked that the restaurant was upstairs and not on the main level where the crowds tend to mull.

    We were seated at a nice table for two overlooking the bar downstairs and handed menus. After perusing the menu I decided to have a Miller lite and the Sheperd's Pie. Liz chose to try the Blue Lagoon for her drink and the Lobster Sliders. Service here is definitely spot on; our waitress was very attentive. Our drinks and food arrived in record speed.

    My Sheperd's Pie arrived boiling hot; too hot to attempt to eat for abouit ten minutes. Liz on the other hand was able to dig into her Lobster Sliders right away as I ate some of her fries. I had a bite of her sliders and they were very good. When my food finally cooled down; it was very good. I even took some of Liz's fries to dip in the tasty gravy.

    All in all; not a bad place considering it is smack in the middle of Faneuil Hall and tourist central.

    This is a famous tourist destination in Boston that offers a variety of food selection from its many food vendors/stalls. There are also an assortment of shops in this general area. In good weather, you typically can find street entertainers within the general vicinity of the area along with the enthusiastic crowd of spectators. It's fun to be around here and I'm sure you will visit this area when you're in town.

  • So many places to choose from!: Great Place, One drawback

    I have never had anything I didnt love here. The food is excellent!!!! They did the bathrooms over some years ago and they are much better now. The icecream parlor underground is really good if you save some room for a treat!
    The crowds are horrible especially during the spring,summer, and fall. There is no AC in there so its just a mound of sweaty hungry people trying to push thier way to get to where they want to go...but hey thats the Boston way.
    When i was in college i would take the T there during a weeknight after rush hour. It's like you have the whole place to yourself, of course thats when the weather is a bit cooler but you can still tolerate to sit outside and hang out if you want.

    Favorite Dish: I usually just grab a slice of pizza because its a little pricey at the other places. Baystate Chowder is also a great place to get some supper :) And DONT forget about icecream after!

    Boston & Maine Fish Co.: First Class Seafood Lunch in Quincy Market

    by Mikebb Written Jun 7, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Boston & Maine Fish Co

    There were 40 or more places to eat in the Quincy Market, so many that it was very hard to make a choice. The quality of the food and meals on display was outstanding, whether it be snack foods or upmarket seafood meals.

    We walked through the market having a good look at what is available before deciding to try seafood from the Boston & Maine Fish Co. Their display looked so fresh and you could watch them cooking the meals so we thought there was little risk in ordering meals we had seen delivered. We both chose the fish kebab, being Swordfish with vegetables on seaseme rice and it was such a large serve that I could hardly finish it, Jill could not complete her serve. We were lucky to secure one of the few table and chairs available which made eating our meal more enjoyable. Cost for 2 meals was all up $31.

    The quality was first class and I suggest if you are used to small serves you should share.

    Quincy Market Colonnade: Choices, Choices, Choices

    by sarahandgareth Updated Jan 14, 2007

    Quincy Market

    At first glance, this part of Quincy Market may look like just a glorified food court, however, it has a much higher caliber of food than in the average mall. It's right in the center of one of Boston's most popular visitor spots, and it's also much-beloved by area workers, including all the city and government types from across the street. There are literally dozens of choices, from Italian to Chinese to Indian to seafood and Mexican, and plenty of dessert options, too.

    Favorite Dish: We're only tried a fraction of what is on offer, but the small Indian place is consistently impressive, and we've enjoyed the pasta place and ice cream, too. On a nice day, it's great to take it outside and find a spot to enjoy your food in the sun!

    Quincy Market is a big food court at the Faneuil Hall Marketplace. In this building you will find one food stall next to the other offering Italian, Indian, Mexican, Asian, American, healthy food, seafood (clam chowder), pastries and desserts for a decent price. In the centre of the building under the beautiful cupola there is an area to sit down and eat your take-away food. It's a great place for a quick lunch.

    Faneuil Hall / Quincy Market: Something For Everyone

    by johngayton Written Jun 19, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Good Visible Signage!

    Faneuil Hall incorporates several different marketplaces with a vast range of both formal and casual eateries and definitely has something for everyone. On a sunny Saturday lunchtime the place was packed but with so many outlets queues were pretty minimal and getting a takeaway from the stalls in Quincy market was swift, efficient and relatively inexpensive.

    Favorite Dish: Much like the Buffalo Wings in Buffalo, everyone has a different opinion of where to get the best Clam Chowdah in Boston. Unfortunately, despite the fact that I actually spent a total of 4 nights in Boston I actually only had 1 full day and so didn’t have a chance to search for the ultimate “Chowdah” - but hey, that’s a good excuse for a revisit!!!

    The one I did manage was a takeaway from the stall here in Faneuil Hall which at about $3.50 for a large bowl (OK read “polystyrene cup” for “bowl”) was really tasty - chunky, creamy and with plenty of meaty clams. For a mass-produced product there was nothing wrong with this whatsoever and it made for an ideal park lunch with its little cellophane bag of crackers. The only minor complaint was that they didn’t sell beer to go!

    Faneuil Hall / Quincy Market: !!! CHEERS !!!

    Cheers Bar: Faneuil Hall / Quincy Market
    3 more images

    This is where you can experience a meal in CHEERS as this restaurant has a Hollywood style island bar very like the TV show.
    This is the one that does look like the Cheers bar on the TV.
    The other is what you see from the street and looks nothing like the show inside as it was filmed on a TV built set.
    Both are now called Cheers and have a souvenir shop.

    Take a photo outside one and eat here and take a photo inside your friends will believe you were there.

    Favorite Dish: Beer with Fish 'n' Chips.

    One of Boston's and America's most famous historical attractions it is also one of the sites along the Freedom Trail. In the heart of Boston right across from it's famous waterfront, three beautifully preserved 19th century buildings have become a famous destination for shopping, dining, and roaming street performers. Uniquely crafted one-of-a-kind gifts can be found among the collections of numerous street vendors. History buffs can also visit the onsite museum . It is a heavily visited area so be prepared for crowds. Make sure you come hungry because the food selection and quality is sure to whet your appetite. Beware that it is often difficult to find a place to sit

    Faneuil Hall / Quincy Market: Many options to choose from

    by jelw Written Jan 8, 2005

    There are many different eateries to choose from at Fanual Hall and Quincey Market.
    Many very good some mediocre. The ones I would rate as mediocre all were primarily fast food type of places.
    This is a fun destination for eating, drinking, shopping and in general merry making.

    Quincy Market is a big food court. Once you enter the building, you will likely get attracted by the smell of tasty food. You can find basically anything you want to eat. From Chinese and Indian food to local Boston food including the New England Clam Chowder. Hot dogs and sausages of all kinds. Philly cheese steak. Having lunch here is a must.

    Zuma Tex-Mex: Mexican at Quincy Market!

    by RhondaRuth Updated Jul 9, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    TexMex in the Basement

    Pros: Great Food, Fun Atmosphere!
    Cons: No reservations
    Recommended: Yes

    I've only been here during the day, so we never waited to get in. The Evenings may be different!
    If you are in the Fanueil Hall area and you're looking for some spicy food to kick up your day or night, visit Zuma's. Reservations aren't accepted. The dining room is located in the basement of historic Quincy Marketplace in the back row or buildings. The atmosphere is really great. Exposed beams, bright lights, mirrors and festive decorating. Add your surroundings to the mouth-watering food. The beams are also adorned with the business cards of all of their guests, so don't forget to hand one over to your waiter or waitress before you leave. As far as the food goes, prepare to be wowed. Zuma's serves a mix between Texan and Mexican foods. Ranging from a simple taco to a Spanish rice dish, the menu is very comprehensive, and spicy. This eatery is great for a dinner meeting or company lunch or simply a break from walking around Quincy Market. It's my favorite at the Market!

    Favorite Dish: Enchiladas ... and most everything Mexican!

    Food served Mon. through Thurs. until 11 p.m
