    One of the best restaurants around Boston. Very eclectic food and it is all amazing. I wish I had a bigger stomach so that I could just sit there and continue eating all the delicious food.

    Stoner's delight is all you could ever want in a dessert: melty chocolate & peanut butter, banana slices, and a heap of toasted fluff. It's super rich (as is everything here), so share with your pals.

    The Gallows features a delicious seasonal menu that changes weekly, depending on what’s fresh, plus some amazing cocktails. We recommend the Marge Tyrell (tequila, kiwi simple, lime, and red wine). Read more

    Scotch egg, suckling pig tacos & at least three kinds of poutine: pub food 2.0. The dark humor in the name and decor continues through the menu. [Eater 38 Member]

    Get the special poutine of the day (we got sweetbreads), the arugula and artichoke salad, kimchi shirt rib tacos, and the lamb shank. Two of you will be stuffed!

    This is the kind of a place where the people who run it, the people who cook, mix cocktails, and serve love what they do....and it shows. Good food and good times are easy, great is difficult. Do it.

    Had the My Way burger- excellent! Be sure to try the house ketchup! Poutine with corned beef was a bit heavy but delicious. Great beer selection.

    They do magical things with both Brussel sprouts and turnips. So you can imagine how good the burgers are. View of the Cathedral is pretty special too.

    Great burgers and gastro-food. Be prepared for calories galore. And have the carpetbagger burger with the fried oysters and well done fries.

    Love this place, most of the food is good, which is why it's so surprising that the corned beef hash is like Hormel canned bullshit.

    The folks behind the gastropub understand that people go out for fun, but when it comes time for more-serious eats, they don’t mess around. Try their wedge salad and Fluffernutter dessert. Read more

    Food is delicious. The service? Not so much. Get the poutine, duck confit, fried oyster burger and sweet potatoes and it'll make up for the obnoxious waiter.

    The burger options change. If they have a burger with an egg on it, that's the one you want, since it pairs so well with the buttered bun.

    The burger with the fried oysters on top is like an appetizer and main course in one. Tasty as all get out, too.

    The tacos here remind me of the Kogi truck from home. Poutine is delicious, and the soft shell crab makes me want to eat the ocean.

    Forget any idea of a light brunch at The Gallows – if you go, you’re in it to win it. You either exit this place feeling like the Octomom or you fall into a food coma-induced sleep and never leave. Read more

    Absolutely amazing. Their secret soft serve dessert is to die for, and the perfect compliment to their complexly flavored food.
