Stopped in for lunch while visiting Boston Sat at bar and ordered beers from a short but good list. Bartender was friendly with a wry sense of humor. We ordered a sandwich and a burger. Both were very good. Saw copies of Boston magazine articles about the place. Best karaoke bar 2 years and best dive bar another. Large room next to bar for karaoke. Went back the next evening bout kitchen was closed. Found another nearby place online and bartender said it was good. Only knock on the place is that you could hear both the rock music in the bar and karaoke at the same time.

Bartender is a fellow Cancer Survivor. I have dry mouth due to my Cancer treatments. His treatment was in the throat also. He suggested I get my wings plain with sauce on the side. Best wings I have had in a long time and did not need sauce to get them down. They were big wings and juicy. Beer was not expensive and great group of people. bar on one side and karaoke some nights on the other side. Very safe, good people.

The wings are cheap and the best in town, at only 25 cents on Mondays they are also the best deal in Boston.

Beer selection is pretty standard and reasonably priced.

The crowd is eclectic and the bartenders are eccentric, if that bothers you than you should probably find some other bar.

Court side has lots of beer options but only red or white wine. The place defines dive bar. The patrons are friendly. The staff a little surly.

We were in town staying in a local hotel to watch some ball games. We decided to walk to the Courtside for some cold beer and food. It is a classic dive bar with red lights and everything. The beer was cold and pizza hot and good. Karaoke started at 9:00 and it seemed to be a local crowd singing. Unfortunately we hadn't had enough to drink and decided that it was time to leave...
