    Faneuil Hall / Quincy Market: Something For Everyone

    by johngayton Written Jun 19, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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!

    Good Visible Signage!

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

    by EdinburghRoc Updated Oct 20, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Cheers Bar: Faneuil Hall / Quincy Market The one you see on the TV show Its nothing like the TV show Edinburghroc outside Cheers

    Faneuil Hall / Quincy Market: Faneuil Hall Market Place

    by Polly74 Written Mar 2, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Faneuil Hall / Quincy Market: The nicest food court in the world!

    by Jozzzef Updated Mar 5, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In this nice building in the centre of the city there are dozens of food stands. Enjoy the atmosphere and the looks and smells of all types of food imaginable! You have the choice of Clam Chowder, Lobster Rolls, Pizza, corn dogs, seafood, chicken Teriyaki. Many food stand give out samples to taste. Even if you only need one meal in Boston, go there!

    Favorite Dish: Clam Chowder in a bread bowl. A typical dish for New England. Taste a little like fish-soup and has a creamy texture. Very Yummie.

    Faneuil Hall / Quincy Market: A giant food court

    by meteorologist1 Written Aug 2, 2003

    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

    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

    TexMex in the Basement

    Quincy Market: fast (but good) food at Marketplace

    by kylamees Written Nov 26, 2002

    There are several food shops selling food to take away or eat at the marketplace hall behind the table. As I had not very much time this was the perfect place to have a quick dinner. You can find Italian, Japanese, Chinese food here, seafood, steak etc. And good ice-cream and cakes, of cource, too :)

    Quincy Market. (Fanueil Hall)

    by adambeau Updated Nov 11, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Quincy Market. (also called Fanueil Hall) Listed here because it is a gigantic selection of Boston eateries and variety. You name it, its probably cuisine here. The 'seating' is a bit rustic, but when the food is this good, you'll quickly adapt and enjoy the ambience of my favorite pig-out restaurant. The restaurant at the Pru is jacket/tie only. Quincy Market is whatever you're wearing, or in some cases, not wearing...
    Combine a shopping extravaganza with delicious food and you've got a lot of happy people to mingle and people watch with. In years past, I've done my entire Christmas shopping buying frenzy here in 1 day. Many reasonably priced vendors and countless specialty shoppes. If you think it's expensive here, please...please stay away from Newbury Street. ;-)

    Favorite Dish: Could it be the non-alcoholic frozen 'monkey' drinks? (no no, not monkey as in animal, its called the monkey bar). At Fan'l Hall-as we native Bostonians say--you can choose a few of the Chinese appetizers, on top of some delicious Japanese specialties, blend that with Greek and Italian meats or cheeses, then wolf down some warm Boston chocolate chip Factory cookies with a hot coffee or espresso, then grab some exotic-flavored jelly beans or crunch on a piece of homemade peanut brittle...the choices are almost endless, and food prices are reasonable. Avoid the outdoor cafe's if you can, they can be very pricey. The interior food court offers the best choice and prices.

    Fanueil Hall - Quincy Market. 3 long shopping buildings with 2-3 levels each, a food court that'll sate the most disciminating of palates, great night until about 9pm when all the shops close.
    Numerous pubs, clubs and drinking establishments all within close proximity by foot.

    We do not recall the name but there was this Italian restaurant with an outside terrace in the Quincy market area. Very nice. Actually when we were walking around in North End we were kind of sorry we already had had something to eat because all these Italian restaurants and wonderful smells.... So we suggest to find somewhere nice to eat over there...

    Just for fun you could go to the Cheers cafe!! This really is funny. Everybody wants his/her picture taken outside the cafe!!

    McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurant

    I know it's a chain but it is a high quality one. The seafood choices are excellent. A large raw menu. Our son tends bar at the one at 34 Columbus Ave but we ate at the Faneuil Hall location since it was closer to our hotel.

    Favorite Dish: The menu changes daily.

    Anything on the raw menu. The steamed mussels are fantastic.
