Ate here twice because it was so good. The place is always busy any time of the day...they have a restaurant side and a bear side...and it was great for kids. Service was always superb...and no matter what we ordered, the food was amazing!!!!!!! Will definitely go back if I'm ever in that area again! Loved it!!!!!

Living in Braintree I've driven by the South Side Tavern at least a hundred times but never stopped in. Since I'm moving out of the area soon, I figured it was time to try some of the local places that I've missed, and I'm glad that I did. Parking was a bit of a chore as it seems to share... More

Took family of seven for an evening dinner ( granddaughter's request). Felt the food was somewhat overpriced. My fish dinner was a portion one might expect at lunch, just okay. The younger folks had typical pub style fare and were satisfied. For the cost, I'd prefer to go elsewhere unless you just want to hang out with beer and appetizers.

everything on the menu is great. staff is friendly and the windows open during nice weather. a little small inside so when a game is on the dining area can fill up real tight

Went here with a buddy of mine. I had the buffalo chicken mac and cheese. The chicken was crispy and it was very cheesy. Some might say it was a little rich or heavy but I liked it. Beers seemed to be fairly priced. As far as pub fare goes, I'd go 3.5 out of 5.

We flew into Logan and we were starved as we were driving out to the Cape. And we had been traveling since 4AM. We pulled off in Braintree and found Southside. This was our best accidental find in over a year. Tim was our waiter and he was wonderful. He seemed to be taking care of most of the patrons... More

Excellent offerings of a variety of foods. Danny the Master Chef is just that a Master at what he produces.

My family took me here for my birthday and it was fantastic. Brunch was served buffet style, but don't worry. Everything was hot and delicious. I heard they had a new chef and that he is fantastic, so we're looking forward to trying out other meals at this easy to park restaurant!

We stumbled upon Southside (we're not from Braintree). It was a busy Friday night and almost did not get a table. The Reuben was fantastic! Bread had a crisp to it; not soggy. Thick amount of corned beef. Really tasty. The fries were hot and just as good as the sandwich. The only negative was the well done burger (ordered... More
