Best restaurants in or near Quincy Market

1. Pizzeria Regina

For those who don’t want to brave the crowds at the original location of this very popular pizza joint, the takeaway stand in the food colonnade is an easy alternative. While it may not be as enjoyable as the original, and lacks the atmosphere, it’s a tasty option for Quincy Market. Grab a slice of pepperoni to sample the goods, and consider making the under-10 minute walk to the North End to try the real deal.

The dining room and bar are cozy, so it’s a good spot to stop for a bite to eat or a cold craft beer. The seasonal patio is popular when weather permits. On the weekends, Ned Devine’s transforms into lively nightlife spot with live music and dancing.

5. Boston Chowda Co.

Here you can have fun pronouncing “chowder” like some locals do. The clam chowder is surprisingly good for a tourist-packed takeaway joint. Rich, creamy, and chock full of clams, Boston Chowda is a great place to try this regional specialty. If you’re feeling extra hungry, get your chowder in a bread bowl. But you might want to save room for other treats, like dessert.

Want to have your Ben & Jerry's ice cream the way it was originally intended? Head into the Faneuil Hall scoop shop to try their seasonal flavors and old faavorites!

One of the older—and most famous—Irish pubs in the city, the Black Rose plays its part well; photos of martyred patriots adorn the walls, and flags from every Irish county hang from the ceiling. But the true selling point for this Irish-staffed spot is the nightly program of live, traditional music. If you’re up for a rowdy, Guinness-fueled sing-along with friendly locals and tourists, this is the place to go to near Fanueil Hall.
