Good selection of local beers and lovely clam chowder. Could do more by way of atmosphere. Skip the over-touristy Union Oyster House and come here instead.

Stopped here for lunch after visiting Faneuil Hall. A number of beers on tap, had a Guinness which is always good, and we shared some really great Nacho's. Good service, small place so tables are quite limited.

Stopped in mid day for a casual bite to eat with a coworker! Food and beverages were exactly what we were looking for. The Chicken Bacon Ranch pizza was amazing. Our bartender, Kali, was amazing. Great conversationalist. 10/10 would visit again.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
