This is my second Thanksgiving meal here. Good options for a fixed price menu (turkey, steak, seafood, vegan), generous portions, some good wine options. I like the ambiance which is a bit "artsy", read that as old, art for sale on walls, basement atmosphere. Loved the jazz band both times. I would have given 5 stars but the service was... More

Visited the Beehive after a meal out, the atmosphere and music was fantastic, the performers were really talented. The choice of cocktails weren't too bad either but the're wicked !

Went here for post dinner drinks. FANTASTIC atmosphere. Must be great because the place was packed!!! Food looked wonderful. Female bartenders downstairs are on top of their game! Decent prices for drinks. Great music the night we were there...a Blues/Jazz/wide range band fronted by a guitar playing female. The whole band was really in sync. Great time had by all.... More

Located in the Boston Center for the Arts complex in Boston's South End, this place is eclectic with an extra bonus of live music every day of the week. Brunch food was good but not great - had their eggs shakshuka - poached eggs, north African style tomato sauce with Moroccan sausage. Service was slow but the music was festive... More

The Beehive has gotten a little tired, and maybe resting on its laurels a little. The menu tried to be adventurous, but it seemed like this backfired since the food was actually kind of bland. Paper napkins (!) There is good energy and live music, but the service can be spotty. Probably best for drinks, appetizers, and appetizers, rather than... More

This restaurant offers a nice menu selection, and has live jazz music to enjoy during dinner. The food was good (4 different entrees, all good), and service also very good.

The music and the overall ambiance are the draw. Music was wonderful, and the trio played at just the right level to allow for both listening and easy conversation. Service was attentive, but support staff hovered a bit too much and definitely made you feel that you needed to eat a certain pace and then move along. Food was overall... More

We were looking for dinner after a long day of walking and this was fantastic! Great food, friendly and fun atmosphere, and live jazz! The caramel bread pudding was to die for!

Staying in South End

Neighbourhood Profile
South End
Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
