We stopped by for drinks only, Sunday afternoon late June around 3pm ish. I'd envisioned a queue around the block to get in, but it was actually surprisingly empty, lots of empty tables - however the host at the door said that the tables were for diners only and that for drinks only we had to grab a seat at the bar ''if we could find one''. 'If we could find one' was right, there's actually 3 bars in here - 1 downstairs, 1 upstairs, and 1 around the back, all were completely full. We walked round a couple of times and were just about to leave as we couldn't find any seats when a couple of seats opened up at the main bar downstairs. We grabbed these, and then also luckily snagged a third bar stool as there was 3 of us.
Drinks were on the expensive side, but we'd expected that as it's touristy. I had a couple of Sam Adams Summer, and my companions had a couple of Sam Adams Brick Red each. Around $50 for the 2 rounds plus tip. I really liked that the drinks are served in 'Cheers' beer mugs.
I'd have really liked to stop and eat but we had other plans. I'd certainly visit again if we're ever back in Boston. Yes it's touristy, and on the expensive side, but if you were a fan of the show then it's definitely worth a visit.
There's a couple of gift shops inside, 1 downstairs and 1 upstairs, selling a wide variety of Cheers themed merchandise. Again on the expensive side but if you go to their website you can print out a coupon for $5 off a $30 spend.
Don't forget the obligatory photos outside underneath the iconic Cheers Bar sign.
