Really good pizza joint, and cold beer. Not to many other options worth looking at. Salad was just basic, but ok if you need just a little filler before the pizza. Pizza is very good.

We ordered carryout my first night in Boston. It was so good and their crust has a hint of sweetness! We ordered two pizzas and bot were yummy. One had minimal toppings and the other was load down with meats and veggies! They deliver but we chose carryout.

I am visiting from Maryland and asked for pizza recommendations as I haven't lived here in over 16 years. After receiving several positive reviews we decided to try the Brown Jug and it was even better then expected. Lots of choices, great staff and quick service.

Never disappointed, this restaurant/bar has great pizza and beer and a reasonable price. They also have great BBQ wings. Their sandwiches are also good. If your in the area and you want a good pizza, I would recommend. The service is also very good. On the other side, they have a bar with Keeno and a juke box.

We read the reviews and decided to give it a try as we had just arrived that night from Scotland . I would say its a typical local pub with an added bonus of doing food which is I would say the quality of a local pub nothing outstanding except the portions which were HUGE we did enjoy the pizza...

We ordered pineapple ham and three meat thin crust pizza. Taste wise was good. We picked up order. When we got back home our pizza crust was over cooked which was burned. We were bummed out. Will not be returning.

What more could you want!! It is a thin crusted pizza perfectly cooked, prices are inexpensive and the service is friendly. Soft drinks are only $1.00. This is only the second location since 1947 so they know what they are doing and how to serve the public. Plenty of parking. Our server was Courtney who was very nice

We recently ordered delivery from The Brown Jug when we were staying in Chelsea overnight, and we were pleasantly surprised how yummy it was. The pizza was cheesy and delicious with big pieces, and the antipasto salad was amazing and LOADED with deliciousness. Highly recommend if looking for a delicious, casual meal.
