  • This place is loaded with Boston souvenirs! And lots of places to eat with plenty of seating. If you are a Boston sports fan, they have a great shop with lots of unique Boston sports shirts, photos...

  • Please take the time to visit and let the Park Ranger give you his talk on the history of this building. More has happened here to influence the birth of this country than you might imagine.

  • During my trip to Boston, I came here every day for almost every meal. A variety of food with decent prices, maximum price is probably $30 for a lobster roll and chowder meal. Definitely a must visit while in town. Also, they have regular stores surrounding Quincy Market, but I didn’t go inside any. Great place to shop and eat at the same time!
  • A great place to visit with friends and family. You can find statues and plaques on the buildings where you can learn about the rich history of the area. There's a wide variety of food and shopping, with the Quincy Market full of different cuisines. It is within walking distance of many attractions, including the harbor. There are regular street performances to enjoy as well. It's a great place to visit on a good weather day, as it is an open air marketplace.
  • A place to visit when you're in Boston!
  • Amazing food vendors. Awesome stores. Great foods. Wasn't too crowded but it was still crowded on a Friday afternoon. The entire market was surprisingly clean. But the bathrooms were not, especially in the men's bathroom. It is a public area so no surprise. Each vendor has their own unique type of foods as well. The clam chowder is excellent from any of the vendors. Didn't have a bad experience with any of the clam chowder. The lobster rolls were great but expect to pay $30+ for lobster rolls. The seafood here is expensive. Expect to spend easily over $50 for food. Overall, a cool place to check out but don't forget to budget in the parking lot fee if you're on a budget.
  • I loved this place, it is a must visit when in Boston because it shows the authentic kitchen of the city and has a large different options of good for every taste. It's a little crowded but is worth it. Prices are normal and it has a dinner area where you can sit and enjoy food. I recommend to sit upstairs where you can appreciate the building inside.
