Fun bar- now has ping pong.

I live in Boston and Game On used to be the bar I would watch all sports games, but since they have renovated it to host ping pong downstairs, I have not watched a game here. If you eat here- in my opinion- Game On has some of the best nachos, so if you are with a group, I highly... read more

We got here early to pregame for the Sox and the two bartenders were not paying attention at all! Food came out and sat for so long we went to get it ourselves! Next spot please!

Service was great. Beer selection is fine. Atmosphere is typical sports bar. Restaurant and rest rooms were well kept and clean. Burgers were on the smallish size for the price. Since it is across the street from Fenway Park, you don't go here for the food. It is what it is. I will go back - not great - but... More

Went for a casual lunch with 4 of us- excellent buffalo wings (on the bone) and burgers/sandwiches. Cocktails good too. Was loud for 1 of the 4 in our group. Excellent updates to the downstairs with ping pong. Great for a party.

We ate here for lunch while on a fall tour of Fenway Park. The place was quiet but you can imagine what it must be like on game day. Situated in the outfield wall of the ball park, facing the street, this place has friendly service and extensive menu. I had a gluten free chick and mushroom pizza and my... More

SKIP it – really. Went there before a RedSox /Yankee game only because our regular place said there was an hour wait so went across the street to check it out. They said it would only be about a 20 minute wait Took longer than expected – nearly twice as long. We had 2 beers waiting which they charged us... More

We went there before a Red Sox game because the wait was too long at Beer Works. We should have waited, we ordered burgers and waited a long time for them. When they did arrive I thoughtI had ordered a kids burger, very small and not worth the money. The only good think is I now know where not to... More

unlike many other reviewers, I found the food to be good ( it's a sports bar, not Le Cirque) and the prices reasonable. Service was friendly. You are right next to Fenway and the only downside , to be expected on a game night, is that it is very crowded. One tip- do not buy the beer from the table... More

Burger was ok, little sloppy. Our blonde waitress Jadelynn looked like she just rolled out of bed. Wake up! No eye contact . Meh.
