My son, Joe and I came to Boston for a father and son weekend. Joe had asked some of his friends who live in Boston for some recommendations of places to visit and eat. The Lower Depths Tap Room was one that sounded very interesting...More

This is our go-to place before Red Sox games and this time, we hit it up afterwards instead. Delicious hot dogs, great beer selection, and reasonable (though rising) prices. They only take cash (but have an ATM) so be prepared. Enjoy!

Come here for awesome tater tots and a cold beer. No frills, subterranean spot with a little patio, great for small groups and sitting at the bar.

Great Beer list on tap and in bottles. Crowded when I was there but it was before a Sox game. Beertender friendly with some good suggestions but not annoying. Didn't eat but food looked like standard fairly low grade bar food.

I really wanted to like this place and I came twice during my trip to Boston. The draft menu and location were great, but I thought the food was just okay. I think I would have enjoyed it more if the place hadn't received such...More

Good selection of beers in tap, very friendly staff, and amazing food. The Fenway Tots were amazing with cheese, aioli, chives, onions and more. There entire menu is unique and perfectly executed. Can't wait to go back.

The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but
loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find
victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located
within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign
is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the
city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports
