We had company for two weekends and their favorite activity is visiting bars. So we did. Of all the bars we visited, they liked this one the best. We came in for a beer after walking around the Haymarket. We were drawn by the free music – two guys doing a pretty good job with some current songs. Service was... More

$7 lunch specials can't be beat! I had calzone & salad - VERY generous portions! My husband had pastrami sandwich with fries & a pickle. Lots of pastrami on sandwich! Located right on Freedom Trail on the way to Paul Revere's house. One of the best deals in Boston! Food was excellent! Very unique restaurant, aptly named as it's shaped... More

We came here after finishing up on the Freedom Trail and wanting a bite to eat and a cold beer! We were greeted in a friendly manner and our server was pleasant and good. Had the clam chowder which was very good and my wife had chowder and a sandwich which was also good. It was very hot out and... More

The rudest bartender I've ever met. I don't understand why he took an instant dislike to my daughter and myself, but I've never been treated with such disrespect. I'd never recommend this establishment to anyone. A truly bad experience that took a perfect day and turned it sour.

Good place to go with a group of friends on a Fri or Sat night. $5 cover, upstairs is much more fun than downstairs. Typically has a smaller line than other places in Faneuil.

The prices are great. $6 for a beer and a fabulous steak sandwich also for $6. the waitress seemed to know a lot of the regulars so unlike the 'cheers' nearby this really... More

After a failed attempt to lunch at Hard Rock Cafe, we found this little pub/cafe round the corner. We were greeted by Britney, probably the friendliest waitress we'd had in Boston. Good food, including some nice specials (try the pulled pork!), at very reasonable prices, and even provided a kids portion of an entree. We would certainly recommend this place,... More

Cold day, tired feet, hungry belly, and ready for a hot meal...just steps off the busy Haymarket we walked into the Point, figuring a little pub fare would be good for a light lunch. In a word, bingo! Cheerful waitresses were having a blast singing with the "mood music," the place was warm and clean (save the occasional gust from... More

A great local place for good beer and good fish and chips. We were just walking around town and ran in to this place. It was great for a low key meal and a good beer.
