“Too Proud of Itself.”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Too proud of itself kind of sums it up. The menu is three time longer than it should be for any restaurant. The food quality is about average at best. Service is slow. The beer assortment is amazing, but that alone does not rescue this place from being a painfully average experience at best. Wish I could find something to praise the place about but I can not. It certainly wouldn’t be available parking.

“Okay food, hit and miss wait staff”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

I love in Plymouth and have been going to the Box Bar for over 20 years. The food is okay. Some items like the Taco Salad, Meatball "Sub" and Spaghetti have huge portions for a good price. I only go for the Taco Salad and the chocolate fountain during the summer. The wait staff seems to change constantly and more often than not is very slow and inattentive. It is a nice place to grab a beer and burger in downtown, particularly sitting outside overlooking the park, but nothing special.

“Microbrews and Import Beers Galore”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

If you can't find a great beer here, the problem isn't the Box Bar! Terrific beer selection and good food to go along with it.

“Old Time Favorite”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

This has been around for ages, I don't even know how long but many many decades. It has grown over the years. Food is good, huge portions, they have about every beer you can imagine. Fun and good place to go.
