We were hot and hungry and randomly stumbled in to this restaurant. Little did we know this would be our BEST meal in Boston! Great atmosphere, clean, and friendly staff. But the food is what knocked the ball out of the park. "The Mayflower" sliced...More

We went for a flight of beers to try some new local beers. We sat at the bar and had a good conversation with the bartender. He was nice and knowledgeable about the beers. We didn't eat there.

Four of us had lunch here and a few cold beers. The meals were ok but plentiful and the choices of beer on the menu were extensive. Nice atmosphere and the service was great.

Soaked bun in tasteless beef jus. Not the greatest idea ever. Burgers were just ok. Coke tasted weird.

My husband and I went to The Tap to avoid a sudden downpour and lucked out with some great drinks. Trey was our bartender and took a lot of care with the preparation of our drinks. Delicious! Glad we discovered this place by accident 😀

We were walking along the Freedom Trail and after the chaos at Quincy Market we decided to stop here. I thoroughly enjoyed the flight of dark beer as our cruise ship was lacking in that area. We shared the potato, broccoli and spelt fritters and...More

This was our second trip to this pub and will be our last, sadly. We went to meet friends for Easter brunch and as they got delayed a bit, we went ahead and ordered Bloody Marys and a charcuterie plate. Our server can only be...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
