There is currently a lot of construction/renovation happening so that did hinder our experience just a smidge. We are from Las Vegas where there is always construction so it wasn't horrible. So many s... more »
Lots of awesome food kiosks here. Of course since you are in Boston there are a lot of seafood based options. I have tried multiple different lobster rolls at different locations. Keep in mind, most of the cold or chilled lobster rolls are lobster salad. So if you want big chunks of lobster go for one that is either hot or butter poached. Although I can't remember the name, I also had a delicious piece of chicken wrapped in bacon at one of the kiosks. If you're hungry and don't know what to get this is a great place to start. Let your nose lead the way!
We had a great time we're pleasantly surprised about the area and the restaurants in the marketplace were amazing!! We spent an hour and a half there paid $40 for parking that was the only downfall. Was told by the very nice attendant on the way out of the parking garage that if we downloaded the app our fee would have been half price. Wish I could remember the name of the app worth investigating!
