Had the taco plate during a bike stop riding along the Boston Marathon course. All 3 quite good and all different (chicken, pork and fish). Great beer selection and had a really good server. I'd go back.

Went for dinner with my two adult children - had prompt service, beer selection above average - but food was a totally different story. Menu was pretty lacking for variety and what we all had was fair at best. Daughter had the Philly steak sandwich,...More

Very friendly bartender and staff! Love the top deck seating! Decent drink selection and great menu. Got a glass of wine and fried plantains. Was hoping for a little more crispiness with the plantains, but they were sweet and tasty nonetheless. Definitely would go back...More
