I enjoyed a small bowl of their clam chowder and a cup of their beef chili. Both were very good. Many in the line were buying the lobster roll which they said were also good.

The lobster roll was delicious. Warm with garlic butter. The chowder was flavorful with tender clams. Hope this comes to Colorado some day. Staff was not overly friendly or outgoing.

Very rude guy taking our order. The clam chowder that my husband got he didn't like saying it was like potatoes and clams and thin cool broth, he was not impressed. My lobster roll was wonderful.

Came in on cruise, went to get Lobster roll and Chowda, best food we ate on the trip. We got the special, roll, chowda and a drink for like $30. Everything was so good. The food makes up for the rude service.

Like many visiting here, I made it a point to eat my way through Boston while touring for a week, trying every lobster roll and chowder I could. By far this was the best tasting lobster roll and chowder. They were also the best price....I had the warm roll with just butter. If you don’t like a lot of butter you might want to ask them to go light on the butter… they’re not shy with it. I thought it was perfect. The crew working here is super efficient so even if there’s a line you won’t wait long!More

Love the Rockport Chowder. Considering that Quincy market is a busy place in Boston. Despite the crowds, I got great service and it was a great experience for lunch.

Hands down best lobster roll in Boston!! It came out super fast and was so delicious!! Both the cold and hot lobster rolls were great. The hot one was better! The seasoning was perfect and the bread was toasted with salted butter. It was such...a perfect balance of salt and the sweetness of the lobster. The chowda was amazing! It had huge chunks of lobster in it. It is expensive, but so worth it.!!More

Boston Chowdah (Quincy market) is closed. Color us disappointed. I give them a bottom rating, as they left no sign of when/if they will be reopening. The clam chowder nearby at Boston and Maine fish Company is not an adequate replacement.

While touring the historical buildings & shopping, we grabbed lunch here. The chowder was good but the potatoes needed to cook a little bit more. Good though.

We finished our tour of the freedom trail at Quincy Market for lunch and knew we wanted to try some chowder. The bread bowl here was really tasty and great value, as we shared one portion between two as a hearty lunch portion.
