I came here for dinner on my first night in Boston. It was good. Its a classic place with amazing history so i felt like i had little option but to come here. The food was good and so was the beer thats made at the restaurant. Awesome.

My quest to search for the best Clam Chowder might be over. (As soon as I said that, someone is going to disagree. There's always a better place somewhere else, isn't it?)
Friend of mine recommended this place and I was glad to have tried it while I was in Boston. The clam chowder was phenomenal. It was creamy and velvety with the perfect mix of clams and potato chucks. Having a cup of such in a chilly winter night was certainly a treat. It was just flawless.
Unfortunately other dishes were less memorable. We had the hot oyster house sampler. Baked Stuffed Cherrystones from the sampler was nice but everything else were just mediocre. Lazy man's lobster was disappointing. The sauce was so overwhelmingly bitter you can barely taste the lobster.
5 stars for the Chowda, 3 stars for other dishes, 3 stars for the service.
We waited a while for the food and our server was not really particularly friendly. The seats and the tables were tiny! I guess people in the old days were really a lot skinnier.

Union Oyster House, described as "America's oldest restaurant," was established in 1826. Think of all the historic people who might've dined here! Located on the Freedom Trail and just a block from Faneuil Hall, it's a place steeped in history. I've not been, but I've heard great things about their clam chowder, and now dining at Union Oyster House is on my list of things to do during my next visit to Boston.

The vibe in Union Oyster house is extremely inviting. If you go, make sure to try the clam chowder - it's out of this world. It's also right on the freedom trail, so it's easily accessible while you're touring.

The Union Oyster House has been at this location since 1826 making it the oldest continuously operated restaurant in the United States. The building itself dates back to the early 1700's. The Union Oyster House is a unique place to have a great meal. This was one of John and Jackie Kennedy's favorite places to eat. And check out the original oyster bar.
