A beautiful looking restaurant in an historical building + amazing downtown... and near the Harbor. I would recommend the brunch but beware, the portions are enormous.

We came for the warm lobster rolls and this restaurant was very good. We dined in late afternoon and had no trouble getting a table as a walk in. Our server was excellent and helpful with menu suggestions. The food was very good. We had...a booth and the noise level was good such that you could have a quiet conversation. The atmosphere was nice. I would recommend this place but for adults mostly.More

Service was subpar. Brought wrong wine. Didn't bring soft drinks. Forgot to put in appetizer order. Only refilled water when asked. Food was ok at best. Salmon was not hot when it arrived. My burger was warm. Beans were good though. Lemon tart was runny.

My wife and I love Boston. Unfortunately, our visits are every other year, but we always go to the Bostonia Public House, and this has been for almost a decade. We have NEVER had a bad meal or service. What does that tell you. They...must be doing something right ✅️ over such a long period of time. Thank you, KimMore

We had drinks and lobster mac and cheese. The lobster mac and cheese was amazing and the expresso martini's were some of the best we have ever had. The staff was very accommodating even though we did not have reservations. We enjoyed the restaurant so...much we came back a few days later for our last lunch in Boston. Lunch was great and Kim went above and beyond to provide excellent service with a great attitude and a smile on her face. Stop by for lunch or dinner and I'm sure you'[ll be glad you did!More

If you are looking for a busy, friendly pub, this is the place to go. The restaurant has lots of space and can acomodate large parties. The staff is really nice and the food is out of this world at reasonable prices.

Visited this restaurant with clients and had a great time... Food and atmosphere were fantastic but I'd stay away from the Crab Crusted Cod. It sounds amazing but was really bland... not a dish I enjoyed. The Korean sticky pork ribs were very good. My...guests enjoyed their meal and said the food was tasty.More

Meter parking on the street. No valet that I'm aware of, check with the restaurant directly. There are several parking garages within walking distance.
