Very Good Food and Affordable

This is a neat restaurant, old architecture and very good food. Had a baked scrod dish that was very nice. My wife and daughter both enjoyed there meals too. The waiter was top notch. No complaints at all and would definitely go back. Very convenient to the Parker House if you're staying there.

I fell in love with the old architecture and photos in this restaurant. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Food was AWESOME and the Bloody Mary Bar was INCREDIBLE! We plan to come here for breakfast each time we visit Boston. LOVED it!

Business lunch with 7... attentive service, we had called ahead for a reservation. Pretty standard fare on the menu, but everything came out at the same time and was served by pleasant wait staff. Food was not super memorable or "stand out" - but a nice location on Beacon Hill and good service. Great vibe and ambiance - high ceiling,... More

We went to Scollay Square on the recommendation of our hotel staff. It was great! They had $4 mimosas and a "make your own Bloody Mary" station. The brunch menu was limited, but there was enough on the menu to please everyone. The service was good and the decor featured old Boston pictures which we enjoyed looking at. All in... More

Visiting from the UK and booked this in advance of arriving in Boston. It was only half full which was a bit of a concern when everywhere else was rammed (30 dec). Food was possibly the best we've had in 10 days in the US. Steak, flatbread, seafood. Only dropped a star for value. Some things were very pricy for... More

Ate here during our vacation in Boston. Restaurant was half full which was a good sign as many of the nearby ones were quiet in comparison. Had mains and dessert, no starters and beer no wine. Food very good although not quite sure when lobster mac and cheese became 'market priced' on a menu in this day and age. Could... More

After sight-seeing near the State House, we found this place for dinner (also conveniently not far from a T stop). Our waiter was very friendly and helpful, making some very good suggestions. Their wine list is a bit different - they have two glass serving sizes, one slightly smaller than average and another slightly larger. The wine itself was quite... More

Had a lovely meal at this restaurant quite different than your normal American diners. Good choice on the menu helpful staff, dessert a little pricey. Would highly recommend.

Got into town late and had limited choices for dinner so landed here and it was good enough. The service here was nice, good cocktails and wine, and service was nice. Food tries too hard to be gourmet -- stick with the basics and you'll be fine.

First night in Boston, walking around the neighborhood near our rental apartment; we were really just looking for a nice place to have a cocktail or two. Looking in the window of Scollay Square it looked like it had an inviting bar area. Very good cocktails (martini and cosmo), and on looking at the small plates menu a few things... More
