    Get the nachos with chili - they're epic! But don't touch the top plate because it'll burn flesh in a millisecond. You've been warned.

    Smallish bar with a lively afterwork crowd. Great before a show at the Orpheum. The only place in Boston where you can have a Sam Adams across from his grave.

    Great place! Reminds us of a few hometown pubs in Cleveland!!! Asked if they would have the browns game on an didn't get a snappy witty comment back!!! We will definitely be in to watch our browns!!!

    Popular with tourists right next to Suffolk University, Boston Common, The Freedom Trail, Granary Burial Ground (Paul Revere and other notable dead people). Good beer and service.

    Great place to have a drink downtown Boston, the music was just aweful when we were there. Grab a Sam Adams and look across the street at Sam Adams grave.

    They serve a handful of Sam Adams beers that you can only get in Boston, including one they brew specifically for the pub. Server with a Scottish accent...yep :-)

    Probably one of the most underrated lobster roll in Boston. It is literally a whole lobster and not weighed down with mayo. Sooooo delicious!

    This is not a hot night spot. If you stay there till closing they have a "freeze out" where they open all the windows and doors in the middle of winter and try to kick you out. Very aggressive people

    Dermot makes the bloody mary mix from scratch (the secret ingredient is A1 sauce!). Nothing like a grilled cheese at 12:55- they serve till 1am!

    Try the sweet potato fries but ask for the side! If you get the full order it's like $7 but the side is more than enough for only $2.50.

    Tunnel past the bar, down to the pool tables, and up to the other side. Usually way less crowded there.

    This would be my neighborhood bar if I lived downtown. Typical bar fare, but the beers are where it's at.

    The Paul Revere sandwich is just insane. Pastrami & corned beef. Amazing. Becareful though they charge for soda refills which is a bit cheap if you ask me. They should be free.

    I want to like this place. The food is above decent. But the hostess Peachy is anything but peachy and the waitress' will forget you and your order. It took 10 minutes just to get some drinks.

    Try the The Paul Reevere - A pastrami sandwich. It was delicious. With a side of baked bean it was a perfect Boston treat.

    I saw zombie Sam Adams across the street and came here for cover. However, I found myself surrounded by more Sam Adams. I CAN'T ESCAPE! !!

    Lots of pool tables in the back, weirdly prone to play country music.

    If you're seeking craft beer, look elsewhere. Beer selection consists of only the usual suspects.
