    Good burgers and apps. Entrees are pretty pricey for what you get. Decent beer lineup but nothing special, just the standard craft selection that you can get anywhere nowadays.

    Fries are excellent but more importantly they have some really good IPAs on draft.

    Worst service ever. 4 bartenders and half hour later still no the guy next to me ordered two waters and had a chance to ask if the multiple items on the menu were "too spicy." Never again.

    Great beer list, and super accommodating when my large group showed up—even though we hadn't pre-arranged anything they let us use the semi-private space behind the bar.

    The beer selection is impressive. But don't show up when it's crowded and wearing a Red Sox hat; you'll be ignored, even if you're seated at the bar.

    Decent food. Have had some items be great one day and mediocre the next. The one constant seems to be slow service at the bar.

    Came here with my family, & we had a phenomenal time. Everything we tried was exceptional and got passed around the table. And the service may have even outshone the food! Request Aaron as a server.

    Beermosas at brunch are light and enjoyable and the ribs are insanely good. Food took a little long but it's a huge space with a ton of tables so it's understandable.
