Good food, great prices

The best thing about Pour House are the prices. The staff was also excellent, friendly, energetic and fun to be around. They even helped each other in serving the customers. I wished we had more time, we would've went back for more.

In a neighborhood with no shortage of bars and restaurants, this place stands out. It's no-frills but the atmosphere is casual and fun. The drink and food selection is extensive and the prices are very reasonable. My friends and I all enjoyed our meals and agreed the service was efficient and friendly. I will definitely be going back!

Had been walking around Boston for two hours and just needed to get off my feet for a bit. Walked in here about 7 PM on a Friday and the place was packed. I found a table in the very back corner which wasn't very comfortable at all (flat wooden board seating and backrest). The food was decent - I... More

Went here for a late breakfast on my way out of town. The food was good and reasonably priced for the city. The decor is fun and colorful, beers are big and frosty. The only complaint is that the men's bathroom was 100 degrees, like peeing on the sun!

We stopped into the Pour House, by chance, for a Sunday brunch a few weeks ago. We were pleasantly surprised by the great brunch value on the menu. For about $12 we got a waffle, 2 eggs any style, choice of breakfast meat, hash browns and coffee or juice. Food was very good although my waffle was a bit overdone.

I used to eat here when I lived in neighborhood years ago so I recently took my kids for breakfast when we were staying nearby. It is still a relative bargain - brunch dishes were under $10. My eggs benedict was just fine for $9.95 (paid $18 recently in NYC for same thing). One son had big plate of pancakes... More

This bar we were told later is a college bar, food was poor at best, it's cheap with lots of choice for drinks and food. We did get asked for id on our way in even though we are a mature couple!!

We had a breakfast at the Pour House with 4 grandkids and the grandparents. The service was great, and the food was exceptional. The servers patience with the children at 9am, with their orders and changes in their order was impressive. We would like to visit again without the grandkids, and savor the food.

Went with friends at lunch time on a Monday. Great choice of beers and good bar food. Staff are great fun and get involved with customers with some friendly banter. I'd 100% go back, great spot in a great area. Keep it up guys !!
