The title says it all. Food came quickly and was excellent. The service was great and the beers fantastic. Couldn't ask for much more

A large bar and restaurant centrally located in downtown Boston is well worth a visit for some very fine beers and good food. Has a small patio area out on the sidewalk.

Two buddies and I popped in for a beer and a quick bite before taking the train back home. The staff was friendly and accommodating (we had bags of goodies from a day at Comic Con) so they made sure we had seats and room to keep our loot close by. The beer list was varied and the menu had... More

We stopped here mid afternoon so the waitstaff was limited but service was still good. Chowder was excellent cheese and meat plate was a little bland. Nice choice of beers, especially for the east coast.

We arrived just as the place was opening for lunch - not many people there at that stage. It became busier later on. Lovely (and I may say very handsome) waiters who were only too happy to advise us on choices of beers. We enjoyed 3 different types of black beer - all highly recommended. Our meal was delicious and... More

I was from out of town but my friend highly recommended it so we went. Beer was pretty good with a wide variety of options along with the food. The food was great they also have huge platters you can order which I ended up buying for everyone in the group. I was able to feed 15 guys for three... More

Went for lunch. Place seemed pretty popular. It is typical bar food. The menu and prices were reasonable. The food was good. Service was also good. Nothing special if you are not a beer aficionado.

We visited Boston Beer Works on a brewery tour. The beer was flat, the service was just ok, and the food wasn't that great. Probably wouldn't go back.
