The location is great, the staff are great and the food is wonderful. The seared ahi tuna appetizer was of high quality tuna, just seared perfectly. The steaks were beautiful, we will be back.

Ruth’s Chris delivers a very consistent quality lunch. The steak sandwich, Caesar salad with filet or shrimp are right up the middle. Service is always excellent.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with

one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston

during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
