We decided to try The Fours before the Bruins game. We only had to wait about 10 minutes for a table and were greeted promptly as we were seated. Decided on the Bobby Orr Sandwiches and they were delicious! Service was wonderful and prices reasonable

Grabbed a bite to eat here a few hours before a Celtics game when it was quiet and loved it. Place has a really friendly vibe, with chatty bar staff who make you feel welcome, and there's plenty of decent craft beer to choose from....More
