JFK Presidential library is fascinating, USS Constitution is worth a visit

No. But thanks, more like biking, nature, water, interesting museum...
If you're talking about being there in the near future (as opposed to the spring or summer), you're going to want to stay away from biking, nature, etc. Not to mention the fact that Boston is not exactly known for that type of thing. A lot of the attractions are historical, and there are plenty of museums. What constitutes 'interesting' in your book?

Besides Sam Adams, I did:

Fenway tour - liked it, but it really depends on your interest level in the sport
NE Aquarium - pretty good, but not a great 'value' given the prices
Duck tour - also pretty good, but I imagine a lot of the enjoyment was due to great weather
Freedom Trail tour - it was pay what you want, liked it but again might not be as enjoyable in winter weather
USS Constitution - ship itself was good, museum was even better
Boston Common - just walked around the gardens, nothing special

I'm going to be taking a flight from BOS tomorrow night, any suggestions for a good place to eat supper first.
Not looking for a high class sit down restaurant, just some good food

Rubins and get a burger.  Get the firehouse burger. 
Alternatively, Rami's and get Mediterranean food. 
I prefer rubins.

Also, there is no such thing as a high class sit down restaurant in BOS, lol.

are you driving up from NY for a flight? I think you should stop and eat at the chubby chickpea on the way (if you take the 95). It's about 35 mins give or take 10 from the airport.

I don't plan on driving straight to the airport, I'll have a couple hours in Boston, should I still go there over rubins?
