Visitors to the Aquarium have a number of great food choices both in the main building and right nearby. Since the Aquarium is located on the Boston waterfront, there are great seafood restaurants nearby, but also brick oven pizzerias, snack bars and sandwich shops, and full-service restaurants.

Harbor View Café

If you are visiting the Aquarium and want to eat right here, the Harbor View Café, located on the second floor, offers seating on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Reef

Just outside the Aquarium building on the plaza, The Reef is an outdoor restaurant open seasonally serving family-friendly fare and refreshing drinks.
