Awesome breakfast!

Not your average eggs and bacon joint! We tried the hash, the piggy and... french toast. All were great, fresh and delicious. Service was a little odd, but pleasant. We would definitely go back! Yum!

Best breakfast in Boston. This is a hidden gem people wouldn't expect to have good breakfast. The prices are great too. I got eggs and pancakes for $7. My hotel's concierge recommended me here. Would return.

Stopped in for a drink and surprisingly found a place at the bar. We didn't eat but the drinks were cheap. Service was fast and ended up chatting with folks on both sides of us. This is a fun, bustling place to stop for a drink or cheap eats.

The OTT driver recommended this place highly for its Burritos however none were to be found in the menu I got when I arrived for lunch. Grabbed a chicken parmesan sandwich and a lemonade. Average. The waitresses were more interested in chatting with young blokes in the bar than to serve you. Maybe a more happening place in the evenings.... More

After a busy day visiting Fenway Park and Salem we returned downtown for a quick bite. Pour House is somewhat small, crowded and noisy for my taste, but my husband and three kids seemed to enjoy it. Service was a bit slow, but it was a very busy evening. Our server seemed and little distracted, but the food made up... More

We were a large group (aged 20-60) but were able to find 3 tables together. Breakfast/Brunch had a good selection & was reasonably priced ($57 for 5). Bar type atmosphere, very casual. Good Food, Good Service, Fun Time had by All!

I had the Texas burger and very much enjoyed it. The hamburger was juice with plenty of cheddar cheese and bacon. The fries could have been better. Seemed like they had been sitting out a while before being served to me.

Really fun decor inside but the beer list is pretty lame. They do have some pretty huge red bull drinks though if that is what you're into.
