Fantastic craft beer selection and very helpful bartenders .. Great atmosphere as a couple or with friends. We had their buffalo wings which were great! Definitely would come back here!

Went here with some friends - expected more of a restaurant feel, but was greeted by more of a bar scene. As a bar scene goes - it was rather nice with an enormous selection of beers on tap. Many of the beers were New England specialty beers which I really enjoyed. Was not impressed with the menu or the... More

Excellent menu and prices, tariff ice service! This converted bank building is warm and friendly, and the menu offers something for everyone.

Great Burgers! Nice dark atmosphere for either a relaxing night with friends or a romantic date night. Not the type of bar if you want to dance. Whisky and beer drinks will be very happy here!

Cozy, lots of wood and feels very warm. Outdoor seating in warmer months. Lots of great beers and also bourbons. VERY knowledgeable and helpful staff if you are unsure of what you'll like or want to try something different. Food could be better and have a better selection.

Stopped in to the Ginger Man pub on Washington Street last night with my wife. The beer selection is truly outstanding, and as such rates five Tripadvisor bull's-eyes. Unfortunately, the décor, lighting, and food dropped Ginger Man's overall rating down to an average three bull's-eyes. My wife commented that The Ginger Man would be a good place for the guys...

A very good beer collection, with a lot of unorthodox varities. Definitely some place I would revisit.

I never had a great experience at the Ginger Man but it was fine to go with some friends for lunch or a light bite. The food is typical dull bar food, not of a good quality but quick for lunch. Order something safe and it should be fine. That is until my salad turned out to be fully rotted... More

Great beer selection...friendly servers...and cool vibe. The wings were excellent (and not your typical wings) and duck confit quesadilla was out of this world!!!
