Came here very late the night we arrived. Staff happy to serve us although two minutes before kitchen closed. Everything was freshly prepared and very tasty. Large portions

Came in here after the busy Boston Common Christmas Tree Lighting, what can I say...the service was second to none, the beer range was great (I recommend the local Harpoon IPA) and the food even better. I had the Fish Tacos; the menu range is classic American. Highly recommended!

Everything was great! Appetizers, entrees, desserts, and drinks were all so good. The service was great too. I'm honestly impressed and will definitely be back again!

The food and service were great, but don't go there to have a conversation unless you want to shout. The noise level is very high.

My family thoroughly enjoyed our meals at the Hill Tavern. The food was great , the wine was too. My children enjoyed the burgers and the nachos . I enjoyed the corn chowder . My wife liked her vegetarian entrees. The staff were friendly and the cost reasonable.

Stopped in to enjoy a night cap at the end of as long travel day. Conveniently located just around the corner from the Wyndham Hotel. This is the place where locals spend too much time early in the day on a Friday. Enjoyed a Heff and great conversation while the drinks next to us spoiled drinks and pawed each other.... More

My boyfriend and I like to find a nice, clean and comfortable little sports bar to relax at when on vacation. We stayed across the street and decided to go to Hill Tavern for a late dinner and some drinks. We ended up finishing our days there every night, even to grab some drinks after we had already gone out... More

Good staff, great place to people watch while you sit on the sidewalk for cocktails. Right across from our Hotel.

We sat by staircase going to basement, the Smell of trash was overwhelming. Good Cosmo and appetizers. Would go back again but would not sit by staircase

This is a nice, clean bar on Beacon Hill's North slope. They've been open for a long time and the food is very good for a bar. If you're looking for simple, yet tasty meals, The Hill can deliver. Beer selection is solid, and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. Service is great too. Nice spot.
