I arrived with a party of nine around 6:30 on a Sunday evening. Although there were many tables available, we were told that it would be 30 minutes before they could seat a party that large. About 45-60 minutes later we inquired about the wait and were told our party could be seated at two tables. Very dark place so... More

Been here several times, and the steaks were always great, as was the service. Of course I blew the budget on the last night, but it was worth it.

The food here is amazing but the price is extremly high for the amount of food you get. However in saying this it's still worth the cost just wish their portions were larger for you pay for.

This place was fantastic!!! Someone said they did not go in because of the look of the roof but it's just new wooden shakes that haven't aged like the others have so don't let the outside fool you!! Everything from the appetizers to the meal to the dessert was delicious! I strongly recommend going here when you're in PCB!!!

Boar's Head is a bit outdated, but the food was great and the service was amazing! The lobster bisque was very tasty and quite filling. The filet was just ok, but I'm from the Midwest where the beef is out of this world. Our waiter, Paul, was very good! We liked that it was quiet place to eat dinner.

Went for Early Bird Special.. Watermelon Margarita, Oysters Casino, and The Ribs. Wonderful atmosphere and delightful service. Such a nice spot away from the crowds.. it is very soothing.. the food is wonderful.. the drinks refreshing and flavorful. John waited on us.. he and the young man who kept refilling our water glass did a great job of serving us.... More

Just stopped in for cool drinks and a snack on a hot afternoon. Five buck drinks were cold and good and the seasoned fries were really good. The waiter was awesome, and shared a bit of local history with us. Really cool rustic old tavern.

Quiet, dark restaurant with nice quality steaks. Cocktails were not up to par, bartender possibly lacked experience. Would go again, but would probably stick to wine.
