What to Expect

Your tour guide will greet you at under the brick arch adjacent to the Boston Harbor Hotel and you will walk along the waterfront and explore the Seaport District, stopping along the way to sample some of Boston’s freshest seafood and chowders. The tour will conclude with a sweet treat within sight of your starting point and close to public transportation.

Some of the best seafood in America can be found in Boston. Just think of lobster rolls, chowder (or chowda, if you’re from Boston), fish and chips, fresh oysters and clams casino, among others–all these foods originated in New England and have become a part of the American tradition. Everyone always asks where they can get the best seafood and chowder when they come to Boston. Our Yummy Walks Food Tours in Boston takes you to the Seaport District where you will enjoy dramatic views of Boston’s downtown skyline as we stroll along the HarborWalk. The HarborWalk is designed to connect the water’s edge and city’s open space system in a working industrial port. The seafood is local and fresh.

Visit the best of Boston’s historic and modern seafood establishments

No Name Restaurant

No Boston family has been serving seafood longer than the Contos family at No Name Restaurant on Boston’s Fish Pier. For almost a century, they’ve delivered the freshest catches to folks who have come from all over the world.

James Hook

James Hook & Co. is still a family business managed by four siblings of the third generation of the Hook Family. Certainly many things have changed since 1925, but one thing that hasn’t changed is their commitment and dedication to bringing quality lobster and seafood products to both the wholesale and retail markets.

Water Cafe at the ICA

Ingredients are seasonal, local wherever possible, and layered to produce authentic and flavorful dishes made the old fashioned way—from scratch! The Water Cafe is a Wolfgang Puck restaurant at the Institute of Contemporary Art. Chef Brian Doyle was the former Executive Chef at the legendary Locke-Ober in Boston and now creates his seasonal menu at the Water Cafe.

Lucky’s Lounge

Lucky’s Lounge has no sign out front. It’s a retro-hip Sinatra style supper club with great food, classic drinks and cool tunes. Descending the stairs into Lucky’s is like stepping through a portal into a swinging hipster lounge straight out of the ’50s. Dim red lighting washes a vinyl-upholstered dining room, which is separate from the long narrow bar.
