  • Assembly Row is not really anything special. Small stores, mostly, with little stock - this is particularly true of Clarks, Steve Madden, and David's Tea. Banana Republic and Anne Taylor LOFT were muc...  more »
  • Shopping area with its many cosy cafés and restaurants. The outlets, cinemas, LEGO land. Am glad that could stop the multi-storey car park is free of charge.

  • It's a self-contained city, with great places to shop, eat, and have fun - whether you're single or are toting a family. You could spend an entire day here and not do everything, making this a repeat destination. My first visit was taking my wife, toddler, and seven-month-old to Legoland. We had a blast and look forward to returning to Assembly Row for other fun times. Great vibe.
  • Excellent, interesting outdoor mall. There's ample parking, even on the weekend. The parking garage use the new red/green light system that makes finding an open spot easy. It feels like there should be a few more stores there to round it out, but it's a great place to spend an evening, with food and experiences for every price range.
  • Reserved seating ordered through Fandango is the best way of getting the best seat in the theater. It beats dealing with free-for-all theaters where one seat is available in an isolated spot but not two. Have gone to this theater twice and would not want to go to any other theaters now.
  • Watch out for the Assembly Row's management / security team policy on parking, you could find your car towed if they think you left the site for even a short while. Even know you than returned and spend money on their property and than return to your car to find it gone, which can be reclaimed for a tidy sum of $126.50 five miles away. Thanks for a truly bad experience at your property.
  • Having worked near Assembly Square, back when it resembled a post-apocalyptic wasteland, I can honestly say that literally anything is better than the lifeless rubble-strewn pit it once was. The shops at Assembly Row are just that: literally anything. The restaurants are overpriced and the food is mediocre; but considering that your choices used to be between a rotten discarded apple core and a disease rat, hey, things are looking up. Ooo, and there's a Lego Land!
