Clam chowder was too salty and the banh mi (Pork Belly) was tough and overcooked. Expect a bit better even for bar food.

Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the
heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and
the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable
skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock
Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit
Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques

all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice

Built in 1887 and a historic landmark in Boston, the venue is named after Capt. S. Dillon who was stationed here from 1920 to 1950. Like it's name sake, Dillon's is known for it's warm hospitality, engaging people and spirited nightlife. An All-American menu, two levels and the best patio in the Back Bay make Dillon's a local's favorite.
