Went there before a game and were crammed into a two-sweater table where your elbows hit the person at the next table. Do they really need to be so greedy and cram people in like sardines? It was so loud you couldn't hear yourself think let alone talk to your dinner companion. The food was nothing special and the beer... More

Got lucky and decided to walk in here before the Red Sox game the day after we did the Boston Marathon. The place was crazy but the bartender took care of us. Ordered hot wings and beer. The beer showed up immediately and the wings didn't take too long, I just went and got them from him. The Fenway Ale... More

Good restaurant and beer bar next to Fenway Park. Very good food and an incredible selection of beers. We ate at the bar and our bartender Justin took care of us while we watched the Sox on TV. I had toe sausage entree and it was excellent. The wife had a good salad. Better then Cask and Flagon.

Very poor service. Waitress disappeared in kitchen for long time. Not attentive to our needs. Service was so slow we decided not to order food. Not having enough staff to handle the volume is ridiculous when it was game day. Empty tables everywhere and we had to wait. Very bad service and Ive been there many times.

Been here 70 times. Service keeps getting worse and food was average. No Mgr on duty to stop staff hanging out. Got my own beer at bar because waitress was no where. They're losing $ by not coming around.

Boston Beer Works has an awesome atmosphere for a before game beer being directly across the street from Fenway Park. Their craft beers are top notch with the blueberry and hoppy Back Bay IPA being among the best. Their hefeweizen was very good too. The food menu is a little more diverse than most beer bars with a good variety... More

They answer all your questions and give a tasting of the best ale there is. One learns all he needs to know about what Makes Same Adams the best beer and ale there is.

Good sports bar, bad restaurant. We had 2 servers who didn't communicate with each other. My burger was supposed to be well done and it came out pink. My husband's fried chicken sandwich was rubbery. Beer was good but food was terrible. Guess it depends what you are looking for. Its a good spot for craft beers, a horrible choice... More
