    Great little beer selection. The food looked amazing- steak and mac n cheese are house favorites (well, 2 of the bartenders favorites). I had to inhale amazing steak fumes as woman ate next to me ymm

    The beet salad was delicious--the goat cheese was just slightly sweet and so creamy. Everything complemented wonderfully. The mac and cheese was great too. And love the daytime bartender, Andrew.

    Underrated as a beer bar. Good place for dinner but always have a few tasty west coast IPAs (Bear Republic and Stone) and local breweries (Pretty Things and Clown Shoes) on tap.

    These guys know how to hit a temp! Order the hangar steak u won't find a better one in Boston for the dollar. Sub the mashed for fries if u want but DO NOT pass on the brussel sprouts. DONT!!

    Great spot for some cocktails and craft beers which include locals and seasonals. And $3 PBR drafts.

    Tasty burger. Good fries. Good beer. Service? Not included. Not sure why I even left a tip. Table of 1 shouldn't be difficult. But when my beer glass is empty for 5 mins..I take it as a sign-leave.

    The hash is very tasty. It is not hash though. Feels like they just grilled the leftover pulled pork and served it as hash.

    The burger (hat tip to the old Tim's) is fantastic. It is not always on the menu, but ask for it. (You'll feel like a local.)

    The calamari is fantastic, so is the beer selection and sangria. Hands down one of the best bars in Boston.

    Get the Burger. Best Burger money can buy-the bun alone is to die for, and it's a heroic portion of beef.

    I've had the atlantic salmon here...twice. I try not to repeat things so I can try more plates, but you can't fight perfection.
