we have been coming here for a long time, in fact this was where we had our first date and where my husband proposed- it's that special to us. We love the atmosphere, the service and the food. It's been a little disappointing through the years that a lot of our favorites are no longer on the menu, but there... More

Really nothing special other than great food, drinks and smiles. Never had a bad meal - service is quick and the menu has a nice variety not overwhelming. A comfort food kind of place.

We eat here a couple of times per year, and really like it. It is busy but not packed, even on a Saturday night. It's a nice atmosphere, too, very casual. We had the Prime Rib sandwich and sauteed haddock. Both were good. Unfortunately, the service was slow enough to really detract form the experience. Slow bringing drinks, slow bringing... More

I have been several times to Boston Beanery but this most recent visit left a poor taste in my mouth. It started from the time we walked in the restaurant. No one greeted us, bartender took forever to get us drinks, & dinner service was mediocre at best. Unfortunate because the food was good.

Not what it used to be. Used to have a lot of regulars come here and now not so much. It used to get crowded and now it rarely is. That is telling. Perhaps that is why its ranking here is decreasing.

Restaurant in a good location. Menu was typical run of the mill American Bistro. Was very loud while we were there. Service was just OK. Food was good.

Stopped on the recommendation of the Sleep Inn fellow. I asked for a locally owned (non-chain) place to grab eats before checking in. Easy to get to from 81. They offer local beer. We are at the bar and the staff was helpful and friendly (on a Wednesday night). Dan enjoyed his sugar glazed salmon, mac n' cheese with broccoli.... More

Quite a nice selection of beers at reasonable prices. Tried the lobster bisque which was tasty. It was sans the lobster, will have to wait for Boston for that. Cute strip mall establishment with friendly staff and neighborhood beer drinkers.

I had a great meal at the Boston Beanery- nothing fancy, just really good food. I used to go there in my college years and it hasn't changed a bit.
