Need a fun place for lunch in Boston on Friday
I am taking my son's 19 year old girlfriend for lunch on Friday. Can anyone recommend a fun place in Boston with great food. Maybe a water view?
Well, it won't get a lot of respect from the foodies on this board (of which I am one!) but I recently went with some co-workers to Joe's American Bar and Grill on the waterfront at lunch time and it was fun, and does have lobster rolls and burgers. It's not high-end or particularly creative food, but the food and prices were decent and the service was great. We followed lunch with a walk to Hanover Street for gelato. I think it would fit the request for "fun" and water view, but may fall short if you're looking for exceptional food.
If food is more important you might try Neptune Oyster in the North End and follow with a walk for dessert and views of the water out by Christopher Columbus park.

The burger at Joe's is perfectly fine. In fact, most of the food is fine. If one is willing to trade on high-end quality for atmosphere and fun factor, Joe's is a great call. When I lived on Commercial Wharf, it was - by proximity - our "go to" spot. It really does not disappoint with the criteria being outside by the water and fun.
