Good breakfast buffet

Staying at the crowne plaza on business. I had a quick breakfast at shoes less joes. They serve it buffet style. The staff is very accommodating and friendly.

I originally came here for dinner and to sit outside. When I did and the person next to me lit up and then another, I knew I don't want to eat with all the cigarette smoke. So I had a couple drinks and left.

Hey, Bob, I'm sorry the cigarette smoke bothered you. Like most sports bars, we do allow smoking on our patio. We'd love for you to come back and try our food some time! Best, Deborah, Assistant Manager More

The waiter was friendly, but seemed new. He got both my wife's sandwich order and beer order wrong, and he couldn't tell us what beer was on tap without going to check. My wife's Reuben was soggy(as were our fries), but my club sandwich was pretty good. Not great, but pretty good. The atmosphere is generic sports bar, and there... More

Located off the lobby of the Crowne Plaza, this lively sports bar - cafe serves one of the best fish sandwiches I've ever had.

An okay sports bar in terms of food and views of ongoing games. Not so great is the service, from the maitre d who had no idea what tables were open to a waiter who couldn't remember to bring silverware, tartar sauce or ketchup, or come back to pick up our credit card. Also not fun was the loudmouth repeatedly... More

Needless to say, I'm really disappointed to hear that we weren't your favorite place. We're usually on top of our game when it comes to food and service, so this is quite surprising to hear -- you really must've caught us on a bad night. Thank you for the feedback.

We enjoyed watching the Boston Bruins in the outdoor dining area. Plenty of screens with reasonable bar food offerings. Great friendly staff. Just a great fun spot if you are looking for a sports bar. Plenty of parking in the Bell Tower shopping center.
