We sat outside on the upper deck. Although the only scenery you have is buildings you still have the fresh air and the people coming and going were fun to watch and converse with. The food was reasonably priced and the drinks were cold and...More

We've been to Rattlesnake years ago and it seems to have declined since then. The bar seemed dark and dingy and the rooftop bar was subpar. Drinks were ok but we didn't stay long.

We showed up and people were leaving. They were insulted by the bartenders. Bartenders and bouncers are rude and belligerent. Go there only if you have no where else to go or if you're desperate.

We arrived Boston same day and walked the streets for a place to have a light fare! Passed The Rattlesnake and went in. Burgers and fries and a beer. All quite ok and typical. Service also fine.

Stopped in for a drink and a bite to eat on a cold day to be greater by a very rude bartender for no reason. I blew it off and went ahead and ordered. Huge mistake. Food was not well prepared and drink was short...More

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
