Delicious and friendly! Best brunch! We also enjoyed a late afternoon meal here which was delightful as well. Look forward to visiting again on my next weekend in the city.

Scollay Square was right next to our hotel so we had a drink on the patio here. Not busy at all on a Saturday early evening so that was nice. Drink was really good and the service as well! Menu looked great also as its rated a top eatery on Zagat. Try it out!

This is my son's go to place for weekend brunch or a cocktail before hitting the town almost any night. We were warmly greeted and given a seat by the window. I enjoyed the many pictures of Scollay Square from back in the day (50's and earlier). We both ordered the farmers scrambled, which was eggs, chicken apple sausage, spinach,... More

Our first night in Boston, we found this little gem near our hotel, XV Beacon. Food was excellent for both my vegetarian tastes and my husband's more American appetite. We were some of the last diner's to arrive before closing but were warmly welcomed and were given attentive service as we enjoyed a late meal. Take time to read the... More

We went for lunch and had no trouble being seated. The wait staff was very knowledgeable and helped us deal with several food allergies. They modified a dish to accommodate my casein allergy.

This Memorial Day weekend, like most all other summer weekends in Boston, brought throngs of visitors to restaurants in the usual tourist spots - Quincy Market, the waterfront, North End and Seaport District - so my partner and I decided we would escape to a quieter corner of the city for lunch at The Scollay Square Restaurant on historic Beacon...

Met a friend here for dinner and was seated right away,our table was a bit crowded with other tables and it was noisy. We ordered the cheese board and shrimp cocktail for appetizers and they were both good. I had the miso glazed salmon which was very good but as with everything else a tad bit overpriced.

Great Beacon Hill location with a small bar and nice open kitchen. The food is creative and delicious. The goat cheese appetizer is a must! Great place to meet up with friends after work.
