“Beers burgers and Boston!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

We have been coming here for a few years now and have never been dissappointed in either the beer selection or the fantastic food. We recently brought a group of 12 there and everyone was very pleased with the service and the food. Oh, and the beer selection too. The waiter had to wait a while while we perused the beer selection! It's a fun place to stop in for a couple of beers or for a delicious meal. You can spend a few hours just looking at all the beer related items on the walls!

“Have a Little King Cream Ale”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

How many bars in the world have Little Kings Cream Ale? This one does and they are only $1.50 each. Wings were also great but you will want to go here for the best beers in town. Over 100 different beers on draft make this the top bar pick in the area.

“Great spot for a beer and a game”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

Though I wouldn't consider this a "must-see" if you're visiting Boston, if you find yourself in the Boston University area and want a place that has a great bar selection and good food, go to Sunset. It can get a little bit crowded with college students between September & May, but with their recent expansion, lots of seating has opened up. The staff is friendly, the atmosphere is great if you want to kick back and relax with friends, and they have a lot of options on their menu! Also very affordable. Try it out!

“It's Beer Heaven!! And Excellent Pub Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

This place is amazing. What's not to like? They've got 200 beers on draft and another 400 in bottles. The beer menu, obviously, is huge, and grouped according to type of beer, so you can discover new beers that fit your style. In addition, the bartenders and waitpeople are knowledgeable and friendly, so they can provide whatever information you need. The food here is nearly as good as the beer. And the prices are very reasonable. You and a few of your friends could go in, and make an event of sampling a wide variety of beers and pub food. The clientel is a twenties and thirties crowd of people who clearly enjoy the experience. Mid to late afternoon is a good time to arrive. The evening crowd is heavy and you will probably have to wait for a table. The restaurant is actually in Alston, just outside the city limits of Boston and contiguous to Cambridge. Easily accessible from the Massachusetts Turnpike.

“Always a safe bet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

Sunset is the place to go when you're not sure about trying out a new place. You can come here, get the nachos, and try a different beer every day of the year. We go here fairly often; in the summer its easier but when the college kids are in, its impossible to seat more than 4 friends at a time. It's hard for me to find a place to enjoy drinks because I prefer ciders and this place has a great selection, which is not something you can say for the surrounding bars.
