Good Drinks

We went here before dinner for drinks only. The section was diverse, and they had a wide variety of beers, as well as a few ciders, and a good selection of cocktails and other drinks. Prices were reasonable, and the service was very quick. At 6pm on a Saturday, it was quite crowded, but... read more

Had dinner here after a long stroll across Boston. Burgers were really good and portions were huge. Would really recommend to anyone.

Came here with a friend for lunch. Got seated right away and the waitress was fairly attentive the entire time. Was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of food on the menu - wound up getting a plain cheeseburger and fries. I made a mistake and ordered the burger medium-well, it was a bit overdone for my taste but it... More

On our way to the Wilbur Theatre we went in for some dinner and a beer. Both were outstanding! Got a stuffed pepper that was delicious. The micro brewery beer selections were good and I selected a fantastic Bavarian beer. Our server was both knowledgeable and very friendly.

I went though a couple of reviews for this restaurant & pub and was shocked. While visiting Boston I found this restaurant to be one of the best that we walked in. We were always greeted with a smile and served right away. I really liked the beer testing option in which we got to taste a few different kinds... More

bad service: The problems commented with the half empty restaurant but still being told there was no tables... also happened to us Drinks are good, wide variety of beers, ciders, good selection of cocktails and other drinks (not good irish coffee though). Prices were reasonable, and the service at the bar is quick.

All I can comment on in this restaurant is it's service and it was the worst I'd ever come across. After being told there was no tables and there was a 20 minute wait were eventually seated after over half an hour only to find half the restaurant was empty. After a further 10 minutes we'd been ignored by 3... More

Ordered soup...It was very cold....The steak tips were terrible - sent them back and then they brought me more soup and that was also cold....The place wasnt crowded at all at this time so I dont understand why the barmaid was...

This was right across the road from our hotel so we ate a late lunch there. Easy access and the food was good and filling! A large variety. Pizza was good. Not a beer drinker but noticed there were several unique beers available.

We ordered the food to go back to our hotel room the evening of the Boston Marathon. While it was good, it wasn't as good as I'd hoped given some very favorable reviews. It was a crazy busy time for them though. The onion rings tasted like they had been cooked with fish so I didn't care for them on... More
