After searching forever for parking (during which will be the last time my dad and I ever attempt driving in downtown Boston), we were frustrated and famished. We walked around late on this beautiful night in Boston, but noticed that every place open was upper-class. And by upper-class, I mean $50 for Mac 'N Cheese and $60 for a burger.... More

Just stopped in for drinks after a day of walking around. Seemed like we were the only tourists in there, which is always nice to stumble into when you're on vacation. Good Bloody Mary!

First time travelling solo, went in here on my first night, made so many friends, great place to just sit at the bar and grab a beer. Went back most nights after that. Food brillant too, in all my time in America, portions were perfect size, not too big, good burgers too! This is the modern day Cheers of Boston!... More

My friend and I stopped here on the way back to our hotel and the place was almost empty. The staff were super nice, but the jukebox was too quiet and there wasn't much of a "scene". For those looking to mingle, I would recommend a short stroll to Boylston and head to the Cactus Club or surrounding bars.

After two weeks of travel & historic hotels all over New England, my wife craved a hamburger. I found Flash's by accident while on a walk. This place was awesome and exactly what the doctor ordered. They make the best cocktails, good wine & beer selection, all at a very reasonable price!
