“Just Awful”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

We have been to this establishment on and off over the last few years, to different experiences,in the beginning they had some pretty good chefs and decent food, and from that point on with the exception of the german chef they had, it has been steadily going downhill, but they have hit rock bottom with this new incarnation. There is not much on the new menu that is palatable, with the exception of their lobster rolls, but even that, has been changed somewhat, and not for the good.
We stopped in for dinner for a business meeting, the service as usual, was nonexistant, the table was dirty, glasses dirty but the food was standout awful. We had the fish and chips wet with grease, steak tough no flavor, chicken pot pie dry bits of chicken, and sauce in it smelt a bit off, we aso had few salads lousy dressing, lamb shank was off, obviously old from another nights special, shepherds pie tasted like hamburger helper, bouillabaisse, few clams and mussels not opened, few shrimp tasted like soap, left that alone. Sloppy food period, won't be back...ever.

“FEB. 20, 2013”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

My wife and I have been going to B & G on 7 since it opened. It is a sports bar - but initially the food was pretty good. The service was never great - but ok anyway. We went last night - the menu and chef has changed. We had an OK meal - but the wine glasses were so dirty we could not drink from them - and the bartender (woman) was a very loud talker and she definitely was talking about people in a derogatory way. Also, every time we go there, smokers are going outside the back door and the WIND/COLD comes into the restaurant every time someone goes out. We must wear our coats when we ewat there in winter or else we will freeze. Also the SMOKE stinks in the restaurant. My last complaint is the BIG GUY walking around the restaurant in a B & G on 7 shirt that is too SHORT and his BIG BELLY hangs out the bottom of his shirt! If you think anyone wants to see that guys BIG BELLY hanging out while they are eatinmg , you are sorely mistaken. I can say it has gone DOWNHILL since it opened. It is too bad.

Overpriced for what you get. 12.50 for a cheeseburger?

“Poor twice in a row”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

Service has always been haphazard. Food good for a sports bar after opening. Last two visits were bad experiences. Just recently: chewy frozen Calamari: $11; alot of slimy greens in a $13 skimpy salad; "watery" Bolognese sauce (soup really) over linguni and cold fries with two dishes. Could not complain as I was treating guests. The owners should know what's coming from their kitchen. Booze and $12 Burgers and nothing else.

“Your Typical Man Cave, Except...”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

...the food is usually a cut above. The usual enormous multiple TV's and noise, but good execution.
