Everything was pretty packed and we managed to find the last table here. Glad we did -- great staff - super helpful, food came pretty quickly and was fine (waffles, why yes, thank you!). Prices were great, particularly for Boston.

Brunch at Pour House starts at 8:00am on weekends so it's a great place to get the day going. The food is simple, comes in large portions and is reasonably well priced. There's a decent variety of beers on tap (would prefer more craft options) and lots of TVs to catch a game on. We liked the downstairs room the... More

Went here for a few beers after work. Have an average beer selection but a good vibe. Lots of good places in the area too. Did not eat.

We had the Sunday slider specials. Nice way to mix sandwiches. Everything was good, not great. Can't beat the price. Not the most comfortable seats. Young crowd. Good selection near all the hotels.

Food was good, prices were good. Did not wow me. It was just average.Nice college crowd watching the Patriots play. The tables were uncomfortable. It was very noisy. This is not a place seniors would enjoy.

Decided to drop in since it was close to our hotel and it was a rainy night. If you're into grunge, retro, fun places you will enjoy this. Be prepared for dark, roll or paper towels on the table kind of place where you can get really good App's, burgers, sandwiches and some fund pub food a excellent prices. Great... More

Me and my friend where staying close by and we wanted to find a bar with decent music and atmosphere. We couldn't have found a better place, good service, great drinks and not too pricey for Boston. Highly recommended.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
