Good food, service, location after a visit to the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain. Only improvement would be better lighting on the restroom.

There's a separate section for dining and the waitstaff is great...knowledgeable, friendly, there when you need them, but not hovering all the time. The food's fabulous and the portions are huge.

Awesome city style pub with great beer and a terrific menu. I had the chicken on a brick with a kale and cauliflower side dish that was amazing. Another family member had turkey tips which they said was delicious. Def going back!

Jamaica Plain
This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct
community unique and separate from the bustle of other
areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an
emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and
organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit
Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and
little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful,
large green space well worth a visit if you venture to
