We went on a Sunday afternoon after dropping our son in Boston. They have a lot of beers on the menu, but the only IPAs on tap were Trillion. I'm not a big fan of them, so I ordered a Stone Ruination in the bottle. About the beers, there are a lot of them, some very hefty in price. If... More

So... This place came highly recommended by more than one person and it's probably my expectation levels that had me a tad disappointed. Great Beer list, no doubt about that. The food was not impressive though. Pretty standard Pub fair but pricey. Service was very good. The place was very busy, had a great atmosphere but was pretty loud. I... More

Good food didn't have drinks but nice atmosphere. Mac and cheese was good but rich and very filling. Burger was well cooked and good fries were amazing! Would visit again

We had three different entrees and everything was really good. Burger came with a mountain of fries, salad was really fresh.

The food was really good! My only complaint is that it was really noisy so therefore hard to have a conversation.

The food here is very good. And the prices are very reasonable. My only problem is that it is usually really crowded at brunch and you have top wait for a table.

A nice restaurant with a warm feeling. We enjoyed the old fashion atmosphere. The food was very goo and so was the service. The staff was friendly and prompt. They have a bakery with a great section. We have been there a few times and will continue to go because it is unique.

Craft beer tap list is unbeatable and servers/bartenders are knowledgable and helpful. Food is good. They loose one star for their strict table policy. You can't sit at a table if you're not eating, even if the restaurant is empty. It seems like they add new rules for when and who they can seat where every time we try to... More

Mac and cheese if you have an affinity for it. Delicious. Service was slow and I don't know if they just didn't like our table or if that's normal. Great place for beer lovers.
