    Cool little bar in the North End! Got the Ward 8 (the drink) and duck wings. Had to get the Ward 8 while in town—read up on this bar's namesake and origin of the drink if you're curious!

    Nice dinner option near TD Garden. The Steak Frites was delicious and they make a great Moscow Mule. On the other end the Striped bass ceviche was under seasoned and the Madeline Cake dessert meh.

    Ward 8 cocktail to kick things off (a classic from Chicago) then the Kale and Cabbage salad (barmaid recommended) with Steak, finished off with the Lunch IPA from the Maine Beer Company: all delicious

    Named for a classic cocktail, Ward 8 specializes in classic cocktails, complemented by snacks like maple chili duck wings and entrees like cod bouillabaisse.

    drinks and dinner both solid. they stay true to classics, but do a good job. the service is attentive, the atmosphere warm & welcoming. tips: get the curry mussels--they are warming, not too heavy

    Killer fried chicken sandwich and a really good burger. Very solid cocktail menu and beer list as well. One of the few places I know that has a hot cocktail list.

    Brunch punch is dangerously awesome - a great hipster spot in the West End and an excellent place for groups.

    Brunch menu is stellar - Eggs Benedict is one of the best in the city. Bacon-infused Bloody Mary is also amaze!

    Skip the lobster "hole", order the duck wings and ask the bartender for her list of the best lobster rolls instead. Drink a Lion's Tail while you do this.

    Zagat says, "Duck wings ($12) in a chile maple sauce have already become a thing of local lore. One sticky, sweet, succulent bite and it's easy to see why."

    Breakfast was amazing. Breakfast sandwich, French toast casserole, you can't go wrong. Don't pass up the bacon-vodka infused Bloody Mary.

    The food and drinks were delicious and the service great. Make a reservation or you'll wait forever on the weekend and be warned, the appetizer portions are small.

    It was a nice place we just sat at bar - had some drinks. They have Hendricks gin so I was happy. Will have to try food next time.

    Solid cocktails at reasonable prices. Good vibe for a pre-dinner drink or a night out with friends.

    The Soul Reviver and the Southside are almost too similar. Get one or the other but not both.

    Tres IPA en la carta de cervezas tiradas, lo cual ya es muy buena señal. Probé la Breakside, muy rica. Excelente para acompañar el 5 Layer Dip.
