    Make a reservation if you're a large party, they can hold a table for you in the back.

    Great bar for big groups but avoid the temptation of letting them sit you in the back room. The bar has a very different feel in the back so wait for the table up front, it's worth it.

    Their spinach dip used to be awesome because it came with pieces of toasted, sliced baguette. Instead they now use crappy tortilla chips. Not nearly as good.

    They recently, in the last year or so, finally expanded their craft beer menu and it's much larger and better. It also rotates pretty well. I am happy again.

    Hill Tavern burger, worth it @ $10 but add a sunny side up egg $1, big serving of tasty bacon $1, cheddar & avocado at $1 each w/ a side salad of mixed greens. Mhm, one of the best burgers in Boston!

    If you're looking to have fun, this is not the place to go. Why you must ask? They don't even carry Fireball.

    This place has heart. I'll leave it at that. If you don't want to know anything about your bartender, have a personal drink or feel at home, walk down to Harvard Gardens.

    Can be a little intimidating if you're looking for seating b/c there isn't always a hostess. If it's empty, seat yourself. Crowded: wait at the front door. Don't worry, someone will come get you!

    Great laidback bar with good beer selection. Try the tomato/mozz/avocado/carmelized onion sandwich (not available during brunch, sadly), it is delicious.
