    The kale and quinoa salad was a little bland. The avocado was very underripe. Loved the hummus, though. The cranberry sangria was great, too.

    Healthy eaters: Skip the corner diner and head straight for the buffet at this pub. All offer carving and omelet stations and all-you-can-eat fruit, breads, salads, and ice cream sundaes. Read more

    Best tater tots known to man live here. Their bar atmosphere is inviting with tables attached right to the bar. Great for large groups to hang on the weekends. Food's good too!

    Severely reduced menu now. We used to come for quick cheap bar food, now it's all "hip" specials and missing classics...

    Enjoy Thrillist + SAPPORO’s Pairing Project, Vol. II, and who knows, you might just get paired up with a handcrafted, limited-run Loyal Dean + SAPPORO longboard.

    GREAT service! But, cold food, inconsistent flavor, quality and presentation of the food from Porter or Central. AND The flies, Flies, FLIES! Lower your expectations in Allston!

    Free samples of beer if you're on the fence about some....great service and their bar area is just as nice as regular seating. KILLER tator tots too.....

    Tavern in the Square occupies the former site of Moskos Restaurant, which was open until 1969. A more informal, cafeteria-style Moskos location was across the street. Read more
