  • This is a must visit in Boston. Expect it to be extremely crowded inside, especially the food area. Lots of local merchants and food. I specifically want to highlight the Cheers store, Wicked Good Cupcakes and Love Pop custom cards (both featured on Shark Tank), and some great lobster rolls at Boston Chowda Company.
  • Lots of food. Incredible selection. Expensive, crowded and the very definition of a tourist destination. Not many healthy options. Crowded beyond all reason.
  • If you haven't been here, you haven't been to Boston. I went to college in the area so coming back is a treat. Enjoy some live performances, food and souvenirs while you're there. After hours bring about bars and restaurants to your heart's content.
  • Great variety of food abd cuisine. Very crowded abd almost impossible to find a place to sit down
  • On the outside it Stan interesting building with history. Nice square to hang out in and imagine the past. Walk inside though and you'll enter gift shop hell. Quincy market adjacent to the hall will definitely handle your eating and upscale shopping needs.
