“Unique pizzas”
Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

Recommended by friends, so stopped in for a meal. Interesting and unique pizza options that proved to taste as good as they sounded. Server was very helpful and informative with beer selections. The downside was the paper plates, styrofoam bowls, and plastic utensils. If you're going to create a pizza like that, serve it up as it deserves to be. Also, the bar itself wasn't very welcoming, no music, TVs were off. Kinda weird.

“Great Beer Selection and Interesting Food Selections”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Once you get passed the old bar atmosphere, and the mouthy staff, Boston's has a great beer selection and amazing food. The atmosphere and the staff were the only things that brought down my rating. I ate the Pork Kraut Panini and it was amazing. The bartender did offer samples but for drinks you had to keep walking up to the bar and the server never did come back to ask if wanted anything else. Very close to Dayton Demonz hockey arena makes it a nice place to stop before or after the game.

“Definitely a bar that serves food, but decent”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We met some friends here for dinner on a Saturday night at about 5:30. We had our 2 year old daughter and they had their 2 year old son. The place is not really set up to serve kids, which I expected, but we made it work. There was no service, so I'm not sure why other people are complaining about service. We had to go to the bar to order our drinks and our food. There are no waitresses that service tables.

My husband had the hot hungarian sandwich, which he really enjoyed. The rest of us had different pizzas. The food was good (definitely NOT the best pizza in Dayton...Kramers!), but it was tasty. We went to try the variety of beers on tap, but unfortunately we showed up during during a week in which only one beer was on tap from Stone Brewery (trip advisor won't let me include the name, but it has initials of A B). Oh well. Around 7pm, the bar started getting crowed and busy, but fortunately we were done eating and the kids were ready to go.

I was worried about it being in "west Dayton", but the area is decent (close to the edge of Vandalia and Clayton) and the building was decent and clean. The decor is fairly dated, but that's really my only complaint (other than it was pretty hot in there once it started filling up).

Like I said, it is not set up for kids, but it is workable. There were other families with children eating dinner as well. The beer selection looks amazing, just wish we could have tried it.

“Great beer selection, good pizza, nice local restaurant”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Ate here while in Dayton on business travel. It was one of the better restaurants I have eaten at in Dayton --- good ambiance for a local "pub". Pizza was quite good. Beer selection was impressive.

“A local favorite with a great beer selection and tasty food”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

Boston's is just that place you think of when you want to meet a friend for drinks and a bite to eat.

So sorry reviewer 'Gentleman Jim' was not impressed ... but then again he and his friend from Oakwood (totally across town) were contemplating going to Friday's ... If one has a penchant for chain establishments ...

It is a great place with no frills. Big patio space. Not such great table service reminding me of pub etiquette in England and Ireland. Simply place your order at the bar.

I would like to note also that owner Dave Boston should be recognized for his community spirit. Boston's often hosts events for various charity fund raisers.

If you are visiting in the area and staying in one of the nearby Englewood hotels, check it out. If you are a local come by for some great Hungarian food. (Vegetarian options available). If you are a regular, hope to see you soon.
