This is on Long Wharf so a great spot for our lunch after visiting he Aquarium. This was my first experience with this chain and I was pleased. Good service, nice ambience, menu varied enough to accommodate my preference for a light lunch, which is not always the case. Fish tacos were very good!

Thankful to not have factory fast food again! On vacation for a few days with wife and 5 yr old. Did I mention, he's become quite the connoisseur of bad food? Anyway, had fish tacos and he ate a quesadilla. All was good...reasonably priced! Great kids menu offering!

Check your bill. I was overcharged. Most likely a simple mistake but it's a rattle when it happens. I wouldn't mind going back. Just need to check the bill everywhere.

Every year a group of former Realtors get together to enjoy lunch and catch up on what's everyone doing in retirement. Since some are from out of state or spread out over MA we meet in Boston at Joe's American Bar & Grill. We have always had excellent service and great meals. I must add our waitress Nicole was great... More

We sat outside. Beautiful day. Service was "ok". It was a Sunday. Bloody Mary was great. Pub food was good. The uncomfortable thing for us, was the hostess literally looked half dressed, and like she just got out of bed. She literally was pulling up her camisole every time she walked. We wanted to offer her a sweater. We felt... More

Popped in for lunch while touring. Had a wonderful lobster roll with a great view. Even the iced tea was good, fresh brewed. Service was excellent. Only complaint was that the heat was cranked, we left sweating. Great food with an even better view.

This place must rely on its location which couldn't be better -- right on the water near the ferry dock. The food is good -- not great -- and there is lots of it. The Cure burger is huge and actually very good. The lamb burger had good flavor but the lamb patty was tiny -- especially for the price.... More

I stopped in while cruising around the park area to have a beer and a bowl of clam chowder. They had fresh Sam Adams Octoberfest beer which was great. The clam chowder was thick and clammy and what I expected. I enjoyed chatting up the bartenders while watching some football.
