I love New England fish and Boston Chowda always delivers with their chowders, soups, and sandwiches. Service is quick and helpful. There's always a line at lunchtime and after work, but it moves quickly. The chowders and soups can come fresh or, if you are in a hurry, you can help yourself to frozen goodies.

The lobster rolls, although pricey, were packed full of succulent lobster meat with just enough base to keep them together. The roll... More

There are plenty of other choices of soups, sandwiches and pot pies plus items to take home. Service is quick and easy. One note of warning, the spoons they have for the soup and chowder... More

We were in town dropping our son off at college and stopped in here for lunch. A nice find! The sandwiches we had were very good. It was a little on the pricey side, but a nice lunch. I was also noting the number of salads, soups and pre-made dinner you can take home to prepare and eat. Lots of... More

Had a Groupon and used it to purchase frozen and prepared foods. The clam chowder was excellent! The chicken wings okay and the shepherds pies very good. Ordered a chicken salad sandwich to go, also very good. Want to go back for the lobster rolls!

Their soups are all really good, if you're not watching calories! Service is always friendly and efficient. Nice selection of frozen pasta.
