I loved the Bell in Hand. It was a stop on a pub crawl my wife and did and we had a blast even though it was a short visit. Good service and the folks at the bar were a lot of fun.

If you are near Quincy market stop in. Good food. Small place but lots going on. You might even see some of the Bruins.

This is the oldest put in America and the indoor is all modern nothing old about it.
Homemade Chicken tenders are outstanding.
The Sam Adams burger with bacon is juicy and very good.
Fish and chips and chicken caesar salad was good but nothing more.
The outside building is nice but the interior is disappointing when you are in the oldest pub in America.

I was told this was the oldest bar in Boston. Not sure if that is true, but I do know that it currently is a loud, stank bar that plays terrible music for 21 years olds and has beer lines that taste like they haven't been cleaned in 30 years. Really disappointed.

We had a couple of beers here and loved the open windows and the atmosphere. We ate a lobster roll and a turkey sandwich. Neither were amazing, but was a good dinner. Service was average, place played good music and had on some TVs with local Red Sox stuff on.
