    Got fried clams at Fishermans Net. Good helping of clams and fresh cut fries. I've had better but these were still good. Scallops were a bit over cooked. Not bad for a booth restaurant.

    Make sure to go on an empty stomach b/c you're going to want to eat a lobster roll and finish it off with dessert with either gelato, ice cream or a pastry!

    Definitely have to stop and check out this place! Whether to just browse around or find good eats. Clam chowder from Boston Chowda is highly recommended!

    This pavilion was constructed 1824–1826 & named in honor of Mayor Josiah Quincy, who organized the construction without any tax or debt. It stretches 365 feet & led to the opening of six new streets.

    Check out the Australian Juggler who performs in the square between Quincy and Faneuil Hall. Very funny guy, great crowd interaction, and he's a pretty good juggler too!

    You have to try the tacos and chips at MIJA Cantina and Tequila Bar! What a great atmosphere and price!

    Eclectic and historic marketplace. Not so historic but oh so tasty Wagamama's noodle soup was just the treat on a recent, snowy winter afternoon.

    Do try the New England Clam Chowder. Pure deliciousness. The Victoria's Secret store is quite small.

    The marketplace gets more visitors annually than Disney's Magic Kingdom. It's one of the 9 local tourist traps we think that Bostonians really do enjoy. Click the link to find the others. Read more

    Hungry for lunch or dinner? Get a meal from any place here, and eat upstairs in the rotunda — great views!

    Find a seat first (in or out), then go and make a decision among the vast number of stands selling very average food. Restrooms are in the basement.

    You must try the clam chowder. It is sooooo yummy! If you are not sure, ask for a free sample!

    There was a lot to see at Quincy Market. Make sure you go into all the shops before you buys anything! Prices vary.

    Walk through the center of Quincy Market and snack on all of the free samples. I usually get Megumi chicken at the far end!

    Great Indian food... Boba at Japan place.. Everything is a little overpriced though and it can be hard to find a seat.

    Very touristic spot in downtown Boston, but certainly it is worth a visit. Many souvenir shops and lunch options.

    The Mac-n-Cheese shop offers 15% off if you work in the area and come for lunch breaks. Just ask for a card.

    Kinda like the Times Square of Boston—anything you want here you can find somewhere else and not get trampled in the process.

    Do not go to boston kitchen. No seasoning and overpriced. Mac and cheese was cold. Mashed potatoes were watery and dark chicken had no flavor

    Think really big shopping mall food court and the usual mall stores. Meh. A few gems here and there, otherwise just the usual tourist "you must go here" junk.

    The food is awesome. There are so many choices; Greek, Indian, pizza, lobster, Japanese, you never eat the same thing twice in a row.

    Years ago this was the site of the local butchers & farmers market... Now a food court - 'tourist trap'. Don't eat here, but come to see the street performers & vibe.

    This is a happening place. Better to go to a restaurant outside than pay for overpriced food in the food court/corridor

    Sure, you can get seafood, but neither the food nor the bars are close to Boston' best.

    So many good stalls and stands. I bought a nice hat. I only wish that I could have tried more of the food.

    Reading Terminal Market for Philadelphians. RTM has a little more edge, but Quincy has more history.

    At Clark's Shoes, if you bought one of their shoes, you get lifetime free shoe-shines. Pretty useful when I was working in the area.

    To be honest the Indian food is pretty great. Definitely worth a stop if you want to mix it up.
