I have been here multiple times, mainly for the location. Both times I've had some type of episode. The first was when a server forgot to put our order in before they stopped serving food altogether, we had to argue with the server and manager...More

Fun live music place, but terrible service. This is a tourist trap- very poor service during our night out in September 2016.

Simple sports pub with good food. Nothing fantastic but adequate. A little on the expensive side but for the area about normal

Very disappointing that the management completely and utterly drop the ball on realizing the potential of this bar. Management is either disinterested or clueless. Awesome location, cool name, great layout and... That's it. In the outdoor area expect a poor selection of drinks that will...More

We went in on a whim as we were walking past and ordered two drinks. The total was $34!!! Seemed excessive for what we received. Needless to say, we did not stop back there during our stay in Boston.

We came in here for a weeknight, after work drink, and it was very early, hardly anyone in here. There were 5 bartenders standing behind the bar, and only one seemed to be doing any bar related things. Still, we weren't given menus. We had...More

We stopped in for a few drinks and waited forever for the waitress. The place was not that busy either. The waitress wasn't all that friendly either. Wouldn't go back. Decided not to eat here due to the service.

Stopped by on a Friday afternoon, not too busy but seemed service was slow and not helpful. Place seemed unclean with a musty smell. I have heard that WP will be demolished and replaced by condos which are springing up ll over the seaport area.

Seaport District / South Boston Waterfront
This area has been expanding and becoming more and
more popular, for good reason. Not surprisingly, the
seaport district of South Boston is located
beautifully along the water. The area is designed for
easy strolling along the HarborWalk, and there are
bars and restaurants for all ages and budgets. The
Institute of Contemporary Art is located in this area
in a contemporary building with an absolutely stunning
