Awesome food! All apps and entrees were spot on! The wings were super crispy, burgers were cooked perfectly, and some of the best Brussels sprouts I've had in a long time! I came here with a big group for a bachelor party and they treated...More

Once again, drove down from nh to attend a concert with my daughter. I like this venue a lot, on the smaller side, but never seems overly crowded.

What a fantastic concert venue. We tried to eat at the restaurant but they were booked with reservations; good trick the locals take advantage of, I'm sure. It's a bit back from the street and subdued. You have to go up stairs to reach it...More

Reading previous reviews made me nervous! Saw Adam Ezra Group here in Dec. Easy entrance, coat check $2, NO PROBLEMS AT ALL! Quick bar service, good sound, totally enjoyed the concert & venue. Will come again.

Small concrete venue with good sound but little regard for patrons. Violent frisking on entry assumes guilt of all-- including those willing to pay inflated ticket prices. Juvenile house policies; overcrowded besides. Plenty of places for live music in the Boston area-- avoid this one.

We want for Sunday brunch. I had the breakfast tacos and my wife had the turkey hash. We started with the brunch fries. All the food was really good. We ordered a round of bloody Mary's and they were tasteless. Literally a splash of vodka...More
