Just across the road from our hotel is this little pub, its a lively venue when busy and serves food, but we only wanted a drink, some good choices of local fare and all in a great little pub atmosphere, well worth a pint.

Decent beer selection and decent food. Was crowded on a Monday night so there was a wait to get a table but the staff was helpful and kind. Given the name and what I tried there, you should get the buffalo wings. Those were quite...More

Having a child at Boston College makes Buff's a "must visit" on any campus drop off. The challenge often is securing a table as this is quite a popular spot. Had outstanding meal this week and some delicious local IPAs. We were watching the end...More

Wings are good. The fact that this place is cash only brings the rating down. It's 2017 in Boston and your a restaurant, there's no reason to not accepted credit cards.
