More than your typical Bar and Grill

We sat on the bar -- the service is always better at the bar, my friend said. This is actually true at this place. Don't let the name fool you, the food is more than your typical bar and grill. Well prepared and nicely presented, and tasty. This is a local chain, if you want to unwind and grab a... read more

Came here in a Friday night, made reservations just in case it was busy. Wasn't that busy at all for a Friday night especially it being attached to a mall. Seated right away to a nice booth near the kitchen. Had a very attentive waitress, the bread was amazing as usual. Food was great. Just a great overall experience.

Good food and service. Very clean and vibrant restaurant. Large portions and good quality fresh ingredients. Good menu choices and nice selection of wines, beers and cocktails.

We had lunch here after spending hours shopping in the mall. We often meet here since some family members live north of Boston and others live in the southern region. We like coming here because we enjoy the Sunday brunch and the menu has enough variety to satisfy everyone in our group. Most importantly, the meals have always been good.... More

The food is good, but the service is always horrible. I've gone all different times of day and the result is always the same. It's badly run. The bathrooms are always in need of a cleaning---wipe down, empty trash, etc. When it's busy, it's even worse. Avoid this place.

Set in a shopping mall this is an average restaurant chain with ample dinning room seating, mediocre service and even more mediocre food at a relatively high price. If you're in Braintree you can do better the the TGIF across from the mall.

Our group was here for lunch. When trying to order drinks, three of the options we chose were "not available, sorry!" That's a bit of an annoying way to start the meal. We finally picked drinks, and then waited too long for them to get to the table. The meals - sandwiches and salads - took too long to get... More

We had picked up very tired friends from the Logan Airport shuttle across the street, and this was the most convenient option. We waited an exceptionally long time to be acknowledged by our waitress, and it didn't get much better from there. The entrees were served by someone else who arrived with four dinners but no one had cleared the... More
